A spacious and luxurious lodge resting within the scenic countryside of Lancashire, The Lune offers a group of ten a wonderful base for exploring all of the wonder of this beautiful area.

All on the ground floor and offering a flexible sleeping arrangement, this property is wonderfully suited to a variety of group needs; step into the stylish open-plan living space and gather together within the sitting area where three plush leather sofas await you to settle down in front of the television as you spend your evening unwinding, or take to the dining table with a board game brought from home when you're not using this space to enjoy a delicious homemade meal.

The amply-equipped kitchen hosts all you could need for a week-long stay, with an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, while the central island makes a lovely spot for the rest of the group to keep the chef of the group company or a lovely space for little helpers to get involved in the preparation.

Move down the hallway to find the four sleeping spots all offering a beautiful contemporary interior to match the rest of the property; here you can find a wonderful family room hosting both a king-size and a cabin bunk bed being perfect for those travelling with little ones, two king-size rooms with their very own en-suite shower rooms, and a final adult twin, all boasting ample storage space and being served by the sparkling family bathroom where you can choose from a bath or shower to start your day refreshed.

Outside the delights of the property continue where you can find an enclosed patio hosting your very own hot tub, a lovely spot to soak in your surroundings as you watch the sun set, before lighting up the fire pit to toast marshmallows with your loved ones, sure to be a memorable evening.

When you can tear yourself away from this wonderful base, head out to explore the excitement of the local area with a walk along the scenic River Wenning, the immediate area of Wennington making the perfect choice for an idyllic base, as well as it boasting a train station to give you easy access to the surrounding area.

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’.
