    “We have just returned from Crookenden Row and found it a wonderful base to explore the countrysides and the Lakes.”

    The road to Kendal etc was easy and made the house an excellent base. The directions on the site were slightly confusing - the first left after the church takes you down a lane which isn't near the house. The second left is the entrance to the school grounds where you will see a small gated carpark (no spaces were marked for the house itself but we didn't encounter any problems) and 1 Crookenden Row. ...

    The road to Kendal etc was easy and made the house an excellent base. The directions on the site were slightly confusing - the first left after the church takes you down a lane which isn't near the house. The second left is the entrance to the school grounds where you will see a small gated carpark (no spaces were marked for the house itself but we didn't encounter any problems) and 1 Crookenden Row. The house itself is beautiful, the kitchen has top notch equipment, the beds and linen are superb, the bathrooms were both beautifully fitted and the lounge was really comfortable. The visitors book said that the house had been completed in 2020 and probably because of the COVID pandemic the house hasn't been used much by its owners or guests which shows in a couple of tiny gripes. The crockery etc still had labels on it as did the threshold strips for the carpet and the bathroom cabinet in the upstairs bathroom had a bag of items still attached to the back so it wasn't flush to the wall. The owners probably need to spend a bit of time in their fantastic house to iron some of these things out including putting a mirror under the bathroom light in the downstairs bathroom (the GF commandeered the desk in the downstairs bedroom for her hair/makeup etc as there were just two of us that was fine). The house had a washing machine and unlisted iron and board but no dryer or rack to dry clothes. We were also unsure about recycling so ended up taking ours to Booth's at Kirkby Lonsdale The kitchen could also do with a few more utensils - there are saucepans and a medium frying pan and a casserole pot - but it was missing a cheese grater, slotted/serving spoons, fish slice or tongs to name a few items. That made some simple dishes i.e. sausages or fish quite difficult to cook in fact a fried egg would be impossible. That lack of utensils shouldn't put you off but is worth taking into account when packing up the car.

The property

Kirkby Lonsdale 2.3 miles.

Lying in the charming village of Casterton resting just inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park is this lovely three-storey, end-terrace cottage, 1 Crookenden Row, with stunning views across the fells.

A former school building and part of the site where the Brontë sisters went to school, 1 Crookenden Row has been lovingly renovated to offer four guests a beautiful dwelling from which to explore both Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales.

Park up in your private parking spot before stepping into the hallway, using the coat hooks to hang your things, before finding a lovely twin bedroom on the ground-floor, with zip/link beds which can come together to form a king-size, along with a ground-floor bathroom too.

Travel upstairs to the first floor to find a homely sitting room, with a sofa and armchairs to lounge on before the TV, and a sleek, contemporary kitchen/diner boasting all the appliances you need to rustle up delicious self-catered meals.

Up on the second floor discover a beautiful master bedroom with a king-size bed and an en-suite shower room, perfect for enjoying your own privacy․ The room enjoys far reaching views of the Yorkshire Dales.

The attractive and neat enclosed garden consists of a patio with furniture, great for alfresco dining and drinks in the sun, a gravelled area and a handy lockable original stone bothy.

As you leave the cottage, you have plenty of walks and footpaths all straight from your door and can be on the Yorkshire Dales Road Cycling routes in a matter of minutes!

The village of Casterton is a small setting with an 18th century pub, The Pheasant Inn, and a 9-hole golf course, great for anyone seeking to perfect their swing on holiday.

Barbon is a quaint village only a 3km stroll away with a pub plus a village store called The Churchmouse which is famous for its cheese, deli, village store and home-made food.

Head down to the unspoilt market town of Kirkby Lonsdale to discover high quality, independent shops along with bars, cafés and restaurants with lots within the town and nearby to enjoy.

Make sure to visit the town's most notable feature, the medieval 14th century Devil's Bridge, one of the country's finest medieval bridges, along with a trip to see Ruskin's View for yourself, a vista which inspired a painting by Turner and poet John Ruskin․ 1 Crookenden Row is actually in the view, tucked away behind the trees.

Wander down Salt Pie Lane, visit The Vault: A Story Bank to hear the town's history in their own words, and set off on a riverside walk before coming back to the comfort of a café for a treat.

The beautiful Ingleton Waterfalls Trail is the perfect outing to soak up the natural beauty of the area, along with White Scar Cave sure to impress with its subterranean passages, caverns and waterfalls, with an eco-friendly visitor centre.

More caves lie in the area including Gaping Gill and Ingleborough Cave, whilst Ingleborough mountain is a fantastic hiking choice with a historic fort and Iron Age hut ruins here too.

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’.
