The utility room was excellent for dogs and muddy walking boots!

This cottage was a very comfortable home from home for us. The village is lovely and having a nice quiet pub which served lovely food right next door is a bonus! The cottage was clean and well furnished and Kirkby Lonsdale is a beautiful dog friendly village!

Great quiet location next to the lovely market town of Kirkby Lonsdale. The cottage had everything you could possibly need. Pub next door with friendly landlord. Caretaker was very helpful too.
Mrs Thompson, Liverpool, December 2011
The cottage was in a good location for walks and was not far from Kirby Lonsdale, where we went a few times to eat out. We loved the Whittington village people we met, they always said hello and were very friendly. We were right next to the river Lune and we went there every morning with the dogs. We loved the cottage we stayed in, it was very homely.
