    Pickle barn was beautifully furnished and decorated with central and under floor heating making our stay very cozy especially during storms Isha & Jocelyn. The hosts Steve & Mike were most warming and welcoming, nothing was a problem for them. Definitely will be returning in the future.

    Everything tickety boo and despite the sub zero temperatures outside, the barn was warm and comfortable. Special thanks to Steve and Mike who are so helpful and great hosts. I intend to join the many who make repeat bookings. During my week, the sunrise view towards Ingleborough was out of this world. 5 Star.

    Very quiet, nice walks, fantastic views. Ideal for days out. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Very nice people. Nothing was too much trouble. Already thinking of a return. For two nights the bedroom we had was cold due to weather conditions, but apart from that, brilliant accommodation which was faultless. Many thanks.

  • "The place was wonderful, the location was great with the Dales on one side and the Lakes on the other and beautiful walks from the door."

    The accommodation was excellent, the best we have stayed in (and we've stayed in quite a few !), well equipped, very clean, with beautiful views and in such a tranquil spot. The icing on the cake was the delightful owners who were so welcoming and informative but never intrusive, when we left we felt as if we were saying goodbye to friends. We've never stayed at the same place twice but I think this will be the exception to the rule.

  • "We had a great time at Pickle Barn, Steve the proprietor was there upon our arrival to explain the general running of the place."

    Pickle Barn is a gem of a barn conversion open plan upstairs with the bedrooms below. It is perfectly equipped and very warm and comfortable and very clean. It is placed about 10 mins drive from the town of Kirkby Lonsdale. The scenery around is fantastic we took full advantage of the inclement weather to do an extensive tour of the Dales and found super pubs in very small villages for great lunches and even a train trip on the fantastic Settle to Carlisle line. All in all, we had a great time at Pickle Barn.

  • "The Pickle Barn is a wonderful place to stay."

    The house is very nicely set-up, clean and welcoming and the location is extraordinary. The view from the kitchen french doors was a heart stoppingly beautiful panorama of fields and stone walls, there were sheep and cows grazing on the green grass and it was wonderfully rural but not isolated. The very nice owners are right on site and the pretty town of Kirkby Lonsdale is an easy drive with an excellent grocery store and a charming high street. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Brilliant location with loads of things to do, good farm shops nearby (loved Country Harvest) - and we even had wonderful weather for the week.

    I walked extensively every day, all but once from the door and this kept me going especially on two occasions during the week when the weather turned very wet, knowing the cottage would be warm with plentiful hot water for a recuperative bath or shower on my return.

It was certainly a memorable week, thank you very much.

  • "The property is very well maintained and comfortably appointed."

    The 'upside down' arrangement (bedrooms downstairs) provides a fine outlook from the lounge and kitchen. The location offers excellent views of the surrounding countryside but the approach to the property from the main roads is along a series of very narrow, winding lanes with high hedges affording poor visibility. It's a slow process. There's not much the owners can do about that but, be aware!

    The only difficulty we had was in the booking process, where one payment was made to owners direct (a 'commission' payment I believe) and another to Sykes. This caused some confusion and necessitated a phone call to Sykes. This part could have been made clearer at the booking stage to prevent confusion and extra time/admin on both our side and Sykes'! Overall, a wonderful, relaxing holiday in a cosy, very well equipped cottage.

About the location

KIRKBY LONSDALE

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".
