The property

Kirkby Lonsdale 2.1 miles. Situated within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and within easy reach of the Lake District is Bronte House, a sympathetic conversion of an historic school building nestled in the picturesque village of Casterton. This luxury second floor apartment sleeps up to four guests in two bedrooms making it ideal for families or couples who want to enjoy a memorable break in beautiful countryside. Park in your own private parking space before climbing the stairs to a spacious open plan living area. Bronte House has a well-equipped kitchen providing an excellent facility for cooking a family meal and if the sun is shining, the large west facing balcony with its garden furniture will tempt you to put your feet up and relax with family or friends. The spacious living area offers a large smart tv to watch your favourite programmes, stream a film or use the Bluetooth speaker to play some music. You will enjoy planning an itinerary and chatting about the events of your day. Have a soak in the family bathroom while the heated towel rails keep your towels warm and fluffy and when sleep calls choose either the en-suite master bedroom or the second bedroom, both having the option of either a king size double (zip/link) or twin beds on request. Bronte House is within easy walking distance of The Pheasant Inn and the local garage stocks some basic groceries. The charming market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is a great place to spend a few hours browsing its independent shops and enjoying a meal or coffee in one of a number of cafes and historic pubs. This quaint town is home to Devil’s Bridge which spans a spectacular river gorge. With beautiful scenery all around, Kirkby Lonsdale is the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District. The market town of Kendal is within easy reach, with The Brewery Arts Centre offering diverse entertainment. The small, picturesque town of Sedbergh, nestling at the foot of the beautiful Howgill Fells is worth a visit with its range of little shops, cafes and gastro pubs and is an excellent start point to some wonderful fell walking for hardy walkers. There are several excellent restaurants in the area including the Sun Inn in Kirkby Lonsdale, The Lunesdale Arms at Tunstall, the Highwayman Inn close by, The Black Bull and the Dalesman pub in Sedbergh and the historic Ye Olde Fleece Inn, Kendal. Venture further afield to the historic city of Lancaster. Its castle is a must-see and Ryelands Park is perfect for a leisurely stroll. Williamson Park with its tropical butterfly house is a delight and the Park is famous for its outdoor theatre summer productions. The River Lune Aqueduct is an impressive engineering feat, and the Lancaster City Museum is well worth a visit. This apartment in Bronte House is perfectly located for a family holiday at any time of the year whether your interests are walking, cycling, or just relaxing with family and friends escaping from the pressures of everyday life.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Kendal 9 miles.

An attractive market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, midway between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive independent shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th century buildings which still stand. The town was also a finalist for the High Street of the Year Award in 2016. This part of the Lune Valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin – his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil’s Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks, making the area an ideal location for a break, whatever time of year. When voting Kirkby Lonsdale as the ‘Best Place to Live in The North West’ in 2019, The Sunday Times commented it is “An unbeatable Lake District location, bags of community spirit and one of the cleanest high streets in the country".

Both beds are both zip-linked they are set up as a double and a twin, please let us know at the time of booking if you require the beds to be set up differently.
