  • "Everything you need at the cottage and more."

    Beautiful views and gardens. Good walks and the lovely village of Kirkby Lonsdale nearby. Easy access to the Lake District too.

  • "Lovely place to stay."

    Quiet with great views. The upside down configuration was ideal for the roasting temperatures at the beginning of the week. The bedroom stayed a very comfortable temperature. Some great walks from and close to the property. The approach roads made driving interesting on occasions testing my reversing skills a few times.

  • "From my experience of holiday cottages over decades, I can honestly say that this one has to be one of the best for comfort."

    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. There are wonderful views from the upstairs living accommodation, the open plan arrangement creating a really spacious feel.The owners are so welcoming and friendly, from the onset I felt at home and at ease. 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!

  • "We cannot fault the accommodation, the welcome, the price or the owners who could not have been more helpful."

    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


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’.
