Guest Reviews


    • “Jones family Kirby Stephen lodge rental”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “What an excellent spot to enjoy the area in and around Kirkby Stephen. Manor Lodge was easy to find, provided excellent facilities overall and was a very brief walk to shops and restaurants. A private, off-road parking space next to the lodge was a good start; a place to store four bikes under a wooden walkway was helpful and a first view of the lodge when opening the door was like a home from home! There was a well-equipped kitchen, a clean bathroom and two clean bedrooms; all very homely. It took less than five minutes to walk to any shop or restaurant (and there was a variety of dining opportunities in the main street) and we set off from the lodge on three major walks and two cycle rides with map in hand - easy! A day trip to Carlisle on the Settle to Carlisle Railway was great too. The whole family would recommend this rental to anyone wanting to visit the area.”

    • “Beautiful home set in a glorious garden. We even saw a Heron in the garden pond outside one of the bedrooms on two occasions. Ideal location to explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. The photographs do not do the home justice as it is much larger than expected. The only thing we least liked was having to carry our cases up the steps but its only on the first and last day so not a big problem.”
