  • "A beautiful comfortable warm cottage in a perfect location."

    We loved that we could do country walks with our dogs straight from the cottage and also enjoyed star gazing from the hot tub. Owners were friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. We hope to come back here for another holiday!

    Many thanks for your kind feedback. We look forward to hosting you again! Property Owner

  • "Lovely property."

    Very spacious. Nice touch of chocolates, bubbly and milk on arrival. It's a bit more remote than listing says and access from village is up long single tracks. Would benefit from a second bedroom. Kirby Lonsdale is beautiful.

    Hi, glad you enjoyed your stay! Just wondered what you meant by "Would benefit from a second bedroom"? As it has three! Did you mean a forth bedroom? Many thanks for any response. Property Owner

  • "Super place."

    Lovely setting, very comfortable and peaceful. The photos don't do it justice. The only let down was a few more cooking utensils would be useful and more comfortable pillows but otherwise couldn't fault it.

    So glad you enjoyed yourself! What would you recommend in terms of utensils?! Property Owner

The property

Kirkby Lonsdale 3 milesSituated rurally in Casterton near Kirkby Lonsdale in Cumbria is Langthwaite Cottage, a delightful, three-bedroom annexe.

Enjoying countryside views and a prime position within Yorkshire Dales National Park, the cottage welcomes six guests and two well-behaved dogs, offering flexible sleeping arrangements, a private garden, and an open-plan living space.

Travel down the private lane and reach the driveway, before travelling beyond the shared, sweeping garden, and into the entrance of the annexe.

Reach the open-plan living space, complete with a fully-equipped kitchen, a lofty dining table for eight, and a homely sitting area with a wealth of books on offer; prepare meals, dine and relax in this space as a family. If you'd prefer an alfresco affair, locate the private garden and patio, and set the table, watching the sun set over the village.

To the exterior of Langthwaite Cottage, discover the inviting hot tub providing you the perfect way to relax following a day of exploring.

When sleep calls, retreat to one of three well-appointed bedrooms, all adorning antique furniture and serviced by the ground-floor bathroom with an indulgent roll-top bath and walk-in shower; select between a super-king-size with en-suite cloakroom, located on the first floor, and a super-king-size or twin on the ground floor.

Awaken to stunning vistas across the rolling fields, before beginning a hike towards the Radical Steps for the best vantage point, stroll across Devil's Bridge, enveloped River Lune, or practise your swing at Casterton Golf Course.

Traverse through the national park, reaching beauty spots including the White Scar Cave, and Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, before following the Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail.

Kendal is a must visit town, resting within the Lake District National Park, home to a museum, castle, and the stunning River Kent, ideal for visiting before continuing towards Lake Windermere and its wealth of attractions.

Enjoy an escape at Langthwaite Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location


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".
