    “Super property, great location for shops, café’s & restaurants.”

    Milking parlour for ice cream and Botanica for brunch/lunch were fabulous. River walk loop is great for walking dog, although the lack of even a tiny bit of grass for first thing in the morning and last thing at night was a challenge in the rain and no lazy/relaxing starts to the day! A few walks direct from the village, although the saturated ground made these very muddy. A drying rack to hang washing would be appreciated and an updated waste collection calendar useful.

    Milking parlour for ice cream and Botanica for brunch/lunch were fabulous. River walk loop is great for walking dog, although the lack of even a tiny bit of grass for first thing in the morning and last thing at night was a challenge in the rain and no lazy/relaxing starts to the day! A few walks direct from the village, although the saturated ground made these very muddy. A drying rack to hang washing would be appreciated and an updated waste collection calendar useful. The money towards parking after the parking pass expired was appreciated. Lovely holiday enjoyed by all. Oh, and don’t forget frequent trips to the Brewery which is dog friendly and also does coffee and cake. Market on Thursdays and proper hot chocolate from the chocolate shop.

The property

Kirkby House is the ideal base for a family of six to explore this region of the UK, as it is just moments' away from The Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks! Pull up outside the house to unload your bags; there is a parking pass in the house for the adjacent car park on New Road as well as free parking on the main road B625. As you enter, you're greeted by a useful utility with a washing machine and an under counter freezer; this area also serves as a boot room, where you can store your outerwear. The kitchen/diner has everything you need for a self-catering stay, including a plethora of appliances fit for an aspiring chef! Once a delicious dinner has been cooked, bring it to the dining table or the breakfast bar and enjoy a wonderful meal alongside the glow of the woodburning stove. After dinner, head upstairs to a relaxing sitting room with plenty of seating for you to stretch out on as you watch a show on the Smart TV. Move across the first floor to find two of the three fabulous bedrooms which inhabit the mews, the first of which is a king-size with access to a splendid en-suite bathroom and the other is a twin with access to a sizeable shower room; both rooms contain zip/linked beds for additional convenience. Ascend the stairs once more to uncover the last bedroom, which is a king-size with contemporary furniture and vaulted ceilings, as well as access to an en-suite shower room; the perfect space for those after a little privacy. The property is completed by a convenient cloakroom on the ground level! Kirkby Lonsdale is known for its wealth of eateries, many of which you can find on your doorstep, after dining, be sure hike across the historic Devil's Bridge. There are also plenty of shops, bars and even a brewery to enjoy. Travel a short way to Ingleton, a town that offers access to the famous Ingleton Waterfall, the mountain and caverns of Ingleborough, as well as treks along the Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail. Alternatively, you can travel to the outskirts of the Lake District, where the market town of Kendal offers a variety of activities, such as walks along The Helm, with its wide range of plants and Fell ponies, the KendWall Climbing Centre, for those seeking some exhilaration, and a local museum offering fantastic exhibits. Aside from the adjacent National Parks, which provide a variety of walks and watersports, the Forest of Bowland and Arnside & Silverdale, both of which are designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, are also conveniently accessible. Choose Kirkby House for an unforgettable holiday.

About the location

KIRKBY LONSDALE

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".

Note: There is an extra charge of £20 per pet.

Note: Cot, highchair and stairgate must please be requested at time of booking.
