  • "Another peaceful week in this apartment."

    Had a very chilled week. Fantastic apartment, a home from home. Hope to return in the future.

  • "The apartment is spacious and deserves ten out of ten, my comfort rating was scored lower due to the heat in the apartment and the boiler coming on throughout the night causing a sleepless night."

    The owners did say they would get it checked and the timer altered. There was no hairdryer but otherwise the best of everything. Well situated for the dales and the lakes. Lovely welcome and spotless. Very quiet and hope other guests respect the furnishings .

    Thank you for the constructive feedback. We do not provide a hairdryer because we have been advised they are a fire risk. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will return. Property Owner

    Great for exploring the local area and Lake District. We had a great week exploring local attractions such as Ingleton Waterfall Walk, Sizergh Castle, Levens Gardens & deer park. 40 minute walk to Kirkby Lonsdale with a good choice of pubs, cafes & restaurants.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found the apartment comfortable . Come back soon! Property Owner

  • "Apartment was amazing."

    Proper home from home. Very clean. Absolutely everything you needed was there to hand. The balcony was the icing on the cake. Owner kept in touch with any queries we had. Friendly folks too. Very peaceful location. Only negative feedback I could think of would be for season appropriate duvets. Hope to revisit at some point. Very restful stay which was much needed.

    So pleased you had a restful stay. We have noted your comment and will provide summer weight duvets as soon as possible. . We hope you will return one day soon. Property Owner

  • "This is a stunning apartment and a stunning location."

    The apartment was warm, comfortable, renovated and furnished to a very high standard, everything you needed was there. The views from the apartment were great as was sitting out on the balcony in the sunshine. We were impressed with the care and attention to the grounds surrounding the property, clearly the owners take great pride in maintaining these holiday lets. Kirkby Lonsdale was a beautiful little town with lots of independent shops, yummy ice cream and fabulous places to eat. We really enjoyed exploring the local area.

    Thank you for giving our apartment such a generous review. It makes all our efforts worthwhile. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return one day. Property Owner

  • "Wonderful stay at this attractive, very spacious apartment with adjacent parking and the bonus of a delightful balcony."

    We were extremely lucky with the weather so enjoyed several hours sitting in the sunshine. The kitchen/cleaning welcome pack, plus biscuits and milk were much appreciated. We’ve stayed in many UK holiday lets over years and it’s certainly not standard; it’s a small but very considerate token - the Easter Egg was a lovely touch. Great location, we visited Kendal by car and found a pleasant walk to Kirkby Lonsdale over Devil’s Bridge to the town, where we enjoyed visiting the many pubs. The Pheasant Inn is a short distance from the apartment; there is a shortcut which could easily be missed but it saves walking on the road. We didn’t eat there but enjoyed a drink in their garden, again making the most of the British sunshine. Certainly recommend.

    Thank you for such a thoughtful and positive review. Much appreciated. Please visit again soon. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed in many of sykes cottages over the years and this property is in the category we rate as excellent."

    The sympathetically restored building and the tasteful modern interior complement each other. The apartment is in an ideal location for exploring the lake district and beyond. We will definitely revisit this venue again.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to you returning. Property Owner

The property

Kirkby Lonsdale 2.1 miles.

Situated within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and within easy reach of the Lake District is Bronte House, a sympathetic conversion of an historic school building nestled in the picturesque village of Casterton.

This luxury second floor apartment sleeps up to four guests in two bedrooms making it ideal for families or couples who want to enjoy a memorable break in beautiful countryside.

Park in your own private parking space before climbing the stairs to a spacious open plan living area.

Bronte House has a well-equipped kitchen providing an excellent facility for cooking a family meal and if the sun is shining, the large west facing balcony with its garden furniture will tempt you to put your feet up and relax with family or friends.

The spacious living area offers a large smart tv to watch your favourite programmes, stream a film or use the Bluetooth speaker to play some music.

You will enjoy planning an itinerary and chatting about the events of your day.

Have a soak in the family bathroom while the heated towel rails keep your towels warm and fluffy and when sleep calls choose either the en-suite master bedroom or the second bedroom, both having the option of either a king size double (zip/link) or twin beds on request.

Bronte House is within easy walking distance of The Pheasant Inn and the local garage stocks some basic groceries.

The charming market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is a great place to spend a few hours browsing its independent shops and enjoying a meal or coffee in one of a number of cafes and historic pubs.

This quaint town is home to Devil’s Bridge which spans a spectacular river gorge.

With beautiful scenery all around, Kirkby Lonsdale is the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District.

The market town of Kendal is within easy reach, with The Brewery Arts Centre offering diverse entertainment.

The small, picturesque town of Sedbergh, nestling at the foot of the beautiful Howgill Fells is worth a visit with its range of little shops, cafes and gastro pubs and is an excellent start point to some wonderful fell walking for hardy walkers.

There are several excellent restaurants in the area including the Sun Inn in Kirkby Lonsdale, The Lunesdale Arms at Tunstall, the Highwayman Inn close by, The Black Bull and the Dalesman pub in Sedbergh and the historic Ye Olde Fleece Inn, Kendal.

Venture further afield to the historic city of Lancaster.

Its castle is a must-see and Ryelands Park is perfect for a leisurely stroll.

Williamson Park with its tropical butterfly house is a delight and the Park is famous for its outdoor theatre summer productions.

The River Lune Aqueduct is an impressive engineering feat, and the Lancaster City Museum is well worth a visit.

This apartment in Bronte House is perfectly located for a family holiday at any time of the year whether your interests are walking, cycling, or just relaxing with family and friends escaping from the pressures of everyday life.

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".
