  • "Lovely cottage in a perfect location for shops, pubs and cafes, a big bonus to have some private outside space to enjoy at the cottage."

    Owner is very helpful, cottage is very well equipped, welcome pack was a nice touch. Although it has three bedrooms and can accommodate six people I personally think it would feel a bit crowded with more than four adults. Overall cottage was clean and comfortable and perfectly located for exploring the area.

    Thank you so much for the feedback and I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I appreciate that it is a cottage, not a large house; we have had many groups of 6 that enjoy how comfortable and cozy it is. I respect that it wouldn’t feel right for you. We pride ourselves on its position and amenities so we are hugely glad you found them so good. I hope you get to stay at the cottage again one day. Thanks again for staying at Honey Cottage.

    Great position for all the amenities in Kirkby Lonsdale, with a valuable parking permit as a bonus. Owner very welcoming and helpful with any queries we had- we will certainly be booking this cottage again.

    So glad you enjoyed your time. Thanks so much for staying and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

    It won’t be the last. A lovely property with a great location and a wonderful view. The back garden was a particular highlight especially as we were fortunate with weather. A mix of modern and quirky we loved our stay in Honey Cottage and can’t wait to return.

    To Mrs Currie Thank you. So glad you had a lovely time, and that you were able to enjoy the view from the back garden. Really looking forward to welcoming you back. Thanks for staying at Honey Cottage. Heather Property Owner

    The owners are extremely helpful and friendly and have thought of everything you might need. Is is very tastefully decorated and clean throughout. We all appreciated the bottle of fizz and chocolates - so thoughtful. We'd love to visit again when the weather is better so we can take advantage of the outside patio area. Thank you Heather and Paul. We can't recommend Honey Cottage highly enough

  • "When we arrived there was a bottle of cava, chocolate from the local Bespoke chocolate shop, shortbreads, dog bed, dog treats, dog blankets, left all condiments for tea, coffee and hot chocolate."

    They really thought of everything, soaps, toilet rolls, towels; may only be little things but really made a difference. Honey cottage was definitely a home from home. Everywhere was so clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable and bedding was ideal. Ample space to store clothes, a gorgeous Big bathroom Which was sparkling. The host was amazing throughout, and even though I have a poorly dog, has still checked in to see how she’s doing. Honey cottage will definitely be having more and more visitors to surround the log fire, as we have told everyone just how amazing our stay was. The little village is so picturesque and had everything on the doorstep. Can not wait to return to Kirkby Lonsdale, Honey Cottage. Thank you for having us and making us so welcome. Perfect break.

  • "Honey cottage was perfect for our stay."

    Four old school friends, from different parts of the country and one from overseas, catching up for 4 days. The cottage felt like home and the outdoor terrace was lovely to sit out on at any time of day. We had breakfast and dinner there most nights. Milk coffee, tea and biscuits were provided but a bottle of Prosecco and hand made chocolates just made it all so much more special. Our host Heather was wonderful. She gave very clear instructions about getting into the cottage and checked up the first night to make sure that everything was OK. She also followed up at the end of our stay to make sure that we had a good holiday. I recommend Honey Cottage to anyone wishing to visit the Kirkby Lonsdale area.

  • "Spent a wonderful week in Honey Cottage and Kirkby Lonsdale for the first time."

    The location of the cottage is ideal and you can trust the description given on the Sykes Cottages website. In fact the cottage was even better than expected and Heather goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you need and more. What a lovely welcome surprise of Cava, chocolates and biscuits for us and treats for our dog too! The patio at the rear of the cottage is a sun trap - we were lucky to have superb weather - with seating and tables to enjoy being outdoors, the views and occasionally the sound of church bells. The patio is also very secure if you have a pet with you. Inside is very comfortable with clean white bedding, comfortable pillows and white fluffy towels. The walk in shower is great. If you do want to self cater the kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare and serve a meal. No need to wash up either as you can make use of the dishwasher. The shops and everything else in Kirkby Lonsdale are just a few minutes walk from the cottage and most either have signs saying dogs are allowed or will let you in if you ask. We will definitely be returning at some point and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to others.

    Everything possible to make you feel at home, excellent facilities. Weather was not brilliant but we managed to spend our first night enjoying the patio, the second night we had the luxury of the log burner and the board games provided us good entertainment. As we had two vehicles we parked in the car park opposite Booths which was very reasonable. Everything in the cottage provided to make it homely.

    It is ideally located for everything that Kirkby Lonsdale has to offer - Restaurants, Pubs, Shops etc. The cottage is pet friendly, so myself and a couple of friends were able to stay for the week with their little westie dog. The cottage had everything we needed to make our week a comfortable stay! A parking permit is available for one car only, and although we had taken two cars, we found a parking space close by for our second car within a three minute walk. I would certainly recommend this cottage to other people wishing to stay at Kirkby Lonsdale! Steve Wiseman.

There was plenty games, we loved the ‘logo game’ and books DVDs etc. It’s centrally located, had parking permit too.

    Our cottage was so welcoming - with biscuits, tea, milk and a bottle of Cava too ! Everything we needed to make a meal was available in the well-appointed kitchen, and later, we sank in to our comfortable beds for a good nights sleep. The location of the cottage is perfect being a short walk from the nearby supermarket and the main street with all of its lovely shops and inviting pubs. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and there are many walks you can do straight from the cottage. It's also worth mentioning that the cottage has access by foot, from the rear to the utility room - very useful if your walk has been in rather inclement weather. There is room for muddy boots and a rack above the radiator for wet jackets to dry. There is also a table and chairs outside to enjoy if you are lucky enough to get good weather !

We loved everything about the cottage and hope we can come back to stay again.

    Great terrace patio when sunny. We found that on street parking really wasn't a starter and bought a 1 week longstay parking ticket on the nearby New Street 2 carpark for only £30, which worked on other carparks in the district and qualified for a small refund at the nearby Booths supermarket- other visitors might like to know about this before they arrive. Unloading and loading in the double yellow lined narrow street outside the cottage was a little fraught - but pedestrians, neighbours and drivers were understanding so it was OK - but it had to be done quickly.

    Honey Cottage was great as you had a wide selection of restaurants and pubs within few minutes walk and Booths supermarket too. Well equipped and to good standard and even a Smart TV and pretty good WiFi speeds. The owners provide a permit for road parking but spaces are at a premium. We had 2 cars and just bought a weekly car park ticket next to booths so only couple of minutes walk. Heather thinks of everything and was very helpful. Even provided dog bed and blankets plus a bottle of prosecco for the two legged friends! Location extremely convenient for lots of activities. Recommend Holker Hall and Ribble viaduct.

The property

A wonderful character cottage situated two minutes walk from the centre of Kirkby Lonsdale, which is an attractive historic village in Cumbria close to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.

This cottage is ideal for friends and family wishing to enjoy time together to explore this captivating area.

On entering this well-presented cottage, the spacious downstairs has a beautiful period fireplace and woodburner, a lovely comfortable seating area and a generous dining area with a well-equipped kitchen.

Upstairs are three stylish bedrooms with a splash of colour, fitting in well with the character of the cottage.

From the back step, there is a superb spacious elevated courtyard with simply delightful views over the village roof tops to the church and fells beyond.

The bustling village of Kirkby Lonsdale is full of quality independent shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs serving local ales and mouth-watering food leaving you spoilt for choice.

There is a traditional sweet shop in the village, where you can spark your childhood memories, as well as some interesting antique shops.

This village has the wonderful historic Devil’s Bridge used for bathing in the summer as well as being a favourite for photos.

This then leads to a delightful riverside walk taking you to the church dating back to Norman times with the famous view said by John Ruskin to be “One of the loveliest views in England”.

Just seven miles away is the village of Ingleton with the circular Ingleton Waterfalls Trail or the White Scar Caves to explore.

A short distance away is Farleton Knott with some of the area’s best-preserved limestone pavements in Britain.

Further afield the mesmerizing Lake District beckons and a short drive away you can also dip down to the coast for some beautiful walks.

The villages of Silverdale and Arnside are there to visit as well as Leighton Moss RSPB.

This is an inspired holiday choice to explore this picturesque area with some fantastic views all year round.

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’.
