  • "Absolutely gorgeous house."

    Everything was perfect from the comfy beds, lovely bathrooms, cosy log burner to the fully equipped kitchen. The welcome tray was a really nice touch and much appreciated. Highly recommend.

  • "Cottage was very cold the first 3 days as the heating wasn't working."

    And the temperature was controlled by the adjoining cottage next door. Gas engineer came out and increased the temperature and it helped a lot.The electric socket for the TV in the main downstairs room is dangerously damaged and should be repaired without delay. When it rained the roof was leaking inside the downstairs bedroom leaving it with a musty smell, apparently the owner was aware of this but we wasnt advised beforehand. Also there was no dvd player provided even though there was a shelf of Dvds in the games room.We were told one was going to be brought to us but it never came. Despite all this we still enjoyed our time at casa loma. The cottage had a lovely fireplace, beautiful living room with panaramic windows overlooking a lake, spacious bedrooms with ensute bathrooms or shower rooms, and generally very well equipped, however lacked a small basics such as pen or dishwashing sponge.

  • "Casa Loma was a real home-from-home."

    We felt relaxed and welcome the minute we walked in. The welcome provisions were a lovely touch, the furnishings so homely and the beds so comfortable. Being able to swim in the lake was a real bonus, the staff there were friendly and welcoming too. Having Harry next door was great, we loved the walk that he recommended along the canal. Thanks for a great week.

  • "The property is beautiful with a stunning view of the quarry and all the amenities you could need."

    Swimming in the quarry every day was lovely, the water is crystal clear and the staff at the dive school were friendly and helpful and leant us wetsuits. The welcome pack from the owners was much appreciated. There were 5 adults and our dog and there was plenty of room for us all. We had a fantastic holiday and I'd definitely recommend Casa Loma.

  • "Absolutely magnificent place."

    All fixtures and fittings are high end. The little touches like the welcome basket were a great touch. This place is about 5 mins drive from the M6 but feels in the middle of nowhere, it’s so peaceful. You will not go wrong booking Casa Loma, trust me.

  • "We enjoyed ourselves at Casa Loma for my 60th birthday."

    The property is lovely, spacious and has everything you need. The outside space was lovely in the sun and great to look over the lake with people swimming and diving. Kitchen had everything you needed and more! The welcome pack was fab, thanks so much. Only issue we had was we couldn’t get the tv’s in the games room and 2 bedrooms to work, kept saying no signal and no instructions (didn’t try tv in master bedroom). Overall would recommend staying here.

  • "Lovely property, very comfortable, thoughly enjoyed our stay."

    The welcome pack was unexpected but very welcome. Rooms were all very clean and well maintained, the only possible extra would be a hand rail in the downstairs bedroom ensuite. We had my elderly mother with us and she was just a bit unsteady on her feet.

    Really nice and generous welcome package. Lovely views over the lake, loved chilling in the garden of a evening with a glass of wine. Access to the lake and being able to go open water swimming most days really made the holiday for us.

    The outdoor area and access to the lake made the weekend. The lake is incredible! So clean and picturesque. Carol and her team were so welcoming and went above and beyond, including the tray of lovely food and drink for us upon arrival. We couldn’t recommend it more highly.

  • "Excellent property - thank you."

    This is our second time, and it was as good as we remembered. Two small suggestions about kitchen improvements. 1. The grill (left hand side of the oven) has shelf supports at the front but not the back. This means it is unable to support a grill pan or other that is fully inserted into the oven, without the grill pan tipping over. This means the grill is difficult to use and potentially dangerous. 2.The oven is quite narrow. It would be good to have one more pan that can fit in the oven. The baking tray only fits in longitudinally, and that means it the back (over the flame) starts to smoke. There is one roasting dish that fits but another would be v useful. Thanks again - I think we will be back!

  • "Lovely large house in a very quiet and peaceful spot, the photos don't do it justice."

    The kitchen was very well equipped and the owner left a very generous, good quality welcome pack for us which was much appreciated. Lovely bedrooms all with modern en suite walk in rainfall showers. The back garden was a real sun trap and very tranquil with views over the lake. An added bonus was watching the Peregrines nesting on the cliffs right opposite us. All in all a wonderful place to stay, highly recommended.

    Wonderful views and close access to wildlife environments. The house is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Walking from the house has to be along narrow roads but once you get to the canal, great!

  • "The place was both comfy and stunning and the view always interesting - the noise from the Diving Centre next door was a bit annoying - it was hard to read a book outside in the peace and quiet but the passing swimmers and ducks kept my dog entertained so the trade-off worked for me."

  • "We are just back from 3 days at Casa Loma."

    Communication with Sykes was excellent - we booked at short notice and our last-minute request for all the beds to be made up as doubles was processed. On arrival we received a warm welcome from Harry who was in the process of dropping off fans to the property due to the extremely hot weather. He also quickly organised a parasol for us at our request. The location of the house is unusual – it overlooks a lake in what was formerly a quarry. The lake is used by the neighbouring diving school which means that throughout the day there is the added interest of watching divers and swimmers. We took up the offer of borrowing wet suits at the diving centre and went swimming – a great experience, especially in the hot weather. The house is clean, spacious, comfortable and finished to a high standard. The cinema/games room is a bonus. The outdoor area is lovely and is equipped with a barbeque, patio heater and comfortable seating / dining furniture. There is no shortage of things to do in the local area but we spent a lot of time in and around the house. The accommodation is not cheap to rent but this is reflected in the standard of accommodation, the complementary access to lake swimming via the diving school and attention to detail such as the generous welcome pack. So, all in all we were very happy with our 3 days at Casa Loma and as well as being extremely relaxing we felt it was a bit out of the ordinary.

    Very well appointed with great facilities. The people at the Diving Centre couldn't have been more helpful, even for those of us just going in for a swim. (They lent us wet suits and other kit). The cottage is in an area we hadn't explored before but there are lots of lovely places for wet and dry weather within 30-40 mins drive. We hope to come back!

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".
