    Mr Steward

    “We enjoyed having plenty of space in the lounge.”

    We were disappointed in the low power of most of the light bulbs.

    We were disappointed in the low power of most of the light bulbs. We chose this apartment on the basis that there were 2 pub restaurants in the town. It was a disappointment to find that both had closed down by the time we arrived. Clearly your listing was accurate at the time we booked and we were committed from then on. Presumably you will now alter the listing - it hasn't at this date.

The property

A single-storey apartment, located above the owner's Post Office in the pretty village of Hornby, situated between north Lancashire, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.

This warm and cosy cottage offers guests a spacious sitting room with an electric fire, a modern, well-equipped kitchen and three pretty bedrooms, ideal for any family.

A small garden to the rear with patio furniture offers a tranquil area to sit, and the owner can provide guests with breakfast or afternoon tea in the tea room below.

The rooms are in a delightful unspoilt area ideal for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Parks, with great walking and cycling routes available.

The town of Ingleton is around a 15-minute drive away, and offers waterfall walks and the Three Peaks of Penyghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, offering a challenge to walkers of all abilities.

The Lake District can also be accessed in half an hour, taking you to the heart of some of the most spectacular lakes, mountains and countryside in Britain.

A great location whatever the time of year.

About the location


Kirkby Lonsdale 7 miles; Ingleton 9 miles, Lancaster 9 miles.

The quiet village of Hornby, in the lovely Lune Valley, is bordered by the famous Lake District to the north, and the Yorkshire Dales to the east. A delightful village, set on an old pack-horse route, Hornby is situated close to where the River Wenning joins the River Lune. Hornby Castle is set on a high hill overlooking the river and is known as the subject of one of Turner's best-loved paintings. Consisting of a scattering of traditional houses, a beautiful Anglican church, two pubs and a local Post Office with tea room, there are several 'undiscovered' quiet walks around the village and other, more frequented walks and places of interest close by. Nearby Kirkby Lonsdale is a popular town, with the Old Devil's Bridge a delightful spot to stop for a coffee beside the River Lune, while a number of antique shops and curios can be found in the town, along with an excellent selection of restaurants and pubs. 'Ruskin's View' can also be accessed from Kirkby Lonsdale, where you may walk in the famous artist’s footsteps and experience the views that inspired him.
