An attractive market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, mid way 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. 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.

Previous visitors' comments about Fleshbeck Cottage:
With the cottage being well-situated, it was easy to travel to a number of local destinations. The cottage also felt very modern and clean. Although we had no immediate neighbours, any people we met were very friendly. It was also very nice of the owners to pay us a visit to check that everything was to our satisfaction.
Mr Egan, Stafford, May 2013
We had a good relaxing break, in a quiet location. Liked the fact the owner only called once to check all was well. The pictures were good, but did not do the place justice. We will go back.
Mr Quinn, Darwen, March 2013
It was a home from home! Very cosy and quiet, very well equipped cottage and ideal, rural location.
