The property

Kirkby Lonsdale 2 miles.

This beautiful, detached cottage is situated in the pretty village of Casterton, above the traditional market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks.

This stunning cottage bears testament to its age, boasting original latched doors and quirky steps between rooms; it provides an ideal base for families or friends who wish to explore this wonderful area.

Ivy Cottage offers two sitting rooms, both of which have a cosy woodburning stove, that are lovely to sit in front of whilst enjoying a warm drink and a chitchat with your loved ones.

Also on the ground floor is a formal dining room, along with a well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar and comfy seating.

Upstairs you will find four spacious bedrooms, including the master room with en-suite facilities, and all have superb views either of the village or the garden with its patio, decked area and lawn.

This welcoming cottage is conveniently situated next door to both a shop and a pub, and just a couple of miles away is the picturesque town of Kirkby Lonsdale, with its range of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

The choice of activities here is diverse and include a gentle stroll to the local golf course, a tour of White Scar Cave, which offers the longest cave tour in Britain, a challenging hike on one of the Three Peaks, or a trip to the Lakes, which can be explored on foot, by car or by ferry.

An excellent holiday home with plenty to see and do in the area.

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 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.
