  • "A beautiful barn conversion with quality furnishings."

    Sunny rear garden and parking, which is a bonus. Lovely village with a great pub. We had a wonderfully relaxing time. Nearby Kirkby Lonsdale is a great place with small, independent shops. A lovely part of the country to spend a chill out holiday.

  • "My wife, me and our golden retriever stayed here at the beginning of October and the property is wonderful."

    It has been finished and furnished to a fabulous standard. Everything is top quality, the bedrooms have more than enough wardrobe and drawer space and are well designed and fitted out. The bathrooms are well fitted, clean and bright. The kitchen and utility room appliances are all Neff, even the pans and utensils are absolutely top quality. The tv & audio systems are first class. The heating system is simple to use and works like a dream. The location is great and the rear courtyard is really pretty and peaceful. There is simply not a bad word to be said about the place, we can't speak highly enough of it and we really felt relaxed at the end of our stay.

  • "The cottage was absolutely perfect."

    Extremely well equipped - everything top of the range . Lovely comfortable beds and bedding. We often stay in holiday cottages and consider this to be one of the best. Thanks for a lovely break.

  • "Good - in parts."

    This place is packed with electronic gadgets but there was no tin opener and no corkscrew. There was nothing to welcome us to the property, unless you count the packet of dog biscuits. We do not have a dog so were not impressed. The lovely village church strikes the quarters all night long so if you like the bedroom window open at night, bring earplugs. There is building work going on at a nearby property which caused noise and disruption of vehicles at times. However, there is excellent walking from the door and Kirkby Lonsdale is the perfect location.

    Thank you for your feed back. We will contact the cleaning company as a welcome pack should have been provided for you. There is a cork screw, bottle stops, can opener, peeler, cheese slicer etc in the small pull out drawer directly under the hob. This drawer is mentioned in the information folder. We will highlight this in the folder and add a note on the drawer for future guests. Kind Regards. Property Owner

The property

Kirkby Lonsdale 2.3 miles.

Settled just inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the charming village of Casterton is this lovely barn conversion 2 Crookenden Row.

Part of the site where the Bronte sisters went to school, this old stone property has been lovingly converted to offer contemporary accommodation for two couples in the Lune Valley.

Take in the peaceful surroundings on arrival after parking in your off-road spot, admiring the other neighbouring cottages, before climbing the steps to the front door.

Be welcomed into a hallway and take a right to enter the beautiful sitting room featuring a large L-shaped sofa and a Smart TV, leading into the sleek fitted kitchen equipped with quality appliances.

A utility room hosts the laundry appliances, whilst the property's living areas continue downstairs on the lower-ground floor with a spacious dining room.

Also on this lower floor is the first of the two elegant bedrooms, this one featuring a king size double bed and served by the neighbouring bathroom, complete with a bath and overhead shower.

Back on the ground floor another staircase leads you to the first-floor master bedroom, boasting a king-size bed and an en-suite shower room and plenty of storage.

Please note this property can only accept a maximum of two adults and two children.

Spend time out in the pretty courtyard which you have all to yourself, perfect for alfresco dining or sitting out with your morning coffee listening to the birds.

Embark on local walks right from your doorstep, with the beautiful River Lune just a stone's throw away, and lots of Yorkshire Dales walking and cycling routes to explore.

The charming village of Casterton is home to an 18th century pub, The Pheasant Inn, just a short stroll away so you can enjoy a well-deserved drink following a challenging hike!

Just a few miles south is the bustling market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, settled on the verge of the national park, the town hosts a weekly market every Thursday and is home to one of the UK's finest medieval bridges, the 14th century Devil's Bridge, as well as being home to the famous Ruskin's View which inspired the Turner painting and poet John Ruskin.

The Lune Valley is an idyllic area to explore, with fishing along the Lune widely regarded as one of England's finest game fishing rivers, home to salmon, trout and sea trout.

Enjoy kayaking, canoeing or stand-up paddle-boarding along the Lune too, provided an adventurous way to explore the scenery.

Plenty of attractions lie in the area to visit including the scenic Ingleton Waterfalls and White Scar Cave, the Ingleborough Cave and the peak of Ingleborough, one of the Three Peaks Challenge.

The Lake District is within easy reach too along with the bustling town of Kendal, with Sizergh Castle, Lakeland Wildlife Oasis and Lakeland Museum all worth visiting.

Discover a wonderful retreat in the Yorkshire Dales at 2 Crookenden Row.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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’.
