About the location
Kirkby Lonsdale 2 miles.
Burrow is a small hamlet in the Lune Valley, just two miles from Kirkby Lonsdale, and is made up of a scattering of houses close to the banks of the picturesque River Lune. The local pub, The Highwayman Inn, located in the centre of this small parish, is one of a group of fine dining pubs owned by the renowned chef Nigel Haworth. The nearby market town of 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.
