  • "Beautifully presented log cabin but forget Uncle Tom’s this is spacious, stylish and cosy."

    Everything worked with all you need for a relaxing stay. Though the weather was awful outside it was warm and comfortable inside with lovely views over the hills and dales. Great neighbours, Peter & Percy the donkeys who loved to greet you especially if you had an apple or two.

  • "We had a fabulous week in Howgill Lodge."

    Hilary had thought of everything from board games and wine to dishwasher tablets and an iron. The views were beautiful, and during a rainy week it was wonderful to have somewhere cosy to enjoy the views from sat by the logburner. We loved watching the sheep and birds and even had a hare visit us on the patio. Would highly recommend.

  • "Loved everything about this Lodge."

    Very well appointed in a beautiful location. Everything we needed and good quality things too. Just one small thing lacking was a couple of garden chairs that we could have moved around the patio. The welcome food was most appreciated. Will probably return especially to see the magnificent sunsets right ahead of us!

    Thank you for your lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have taken on board your suggestion for the garden chairs that can be moved around. We do hope you will return and we can welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The lodge was really nice, the welcome basket was lovely."

    Lodge had everything you could need, absolutely no negative feedback to give only positive. Great location, view, loved the triple opening doors onto patio. Would’ve used the wood burner if the weather hadn’t been so warm! We used the owner’s horse riding facility nearby for a lesson for the kids and wasn’t expecting it but they applied a discount for us as we were staying in the lodge. The staff there were really nice and our kids loved their lesson.

    Thank you for your lovely feed back we are delighted you enjoyed your stay in the Lodge and your riding lessons at our riding school.

  • "We had a lovely time here - good to be away from busy life."

    The place is brand new and we were the first occupants - a real treat. Everything is beautiful and the design touches subtle enough to keep making discoveries. The log burner was a wonderful part of our stay. Wi-fi unexpectedly superb. The views from the front are spectacular and hold the entire Lake District - so good to see at sunset and clear air first thing in the morning. To the back, views are less good but we learned to focus on the strong positives rather than the negatives. It's located on a working farm and we saw the birth of 2 lambs about 50 feet away. Great access to areas we have never explored before. We would love to return. The owner is super-helpful.

    Thank you for your lovely feed back. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. What wonderful first guest you were. The place was left immaculate. I really appreciated your feedback during your stay to help us get everything just right for our guests. Look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes Hilary. Property Owner

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 independent 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. When voting Kirkby Lonsdale as the ‘Best Place to Live in The North West’ in 2019, The Sunday Times commented it is “An unbeatable Lake District location, bags of community spirit and one of the cleanest high streets in the country".
