The property

This delightful, stone-built cottage is nestled in the centre of Kirkby Lonsdale, a thriving market town situated midway between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.

This cottage is a very unique building with the dramatic roof line leading to it being known locally as the Witches Hat - it features on the illustration of local buildings to be found at the famous Devils Bridge and next to the Tourist Information Centre.

Well-suited for two couples or a family, this welcoming abode provides a lovely base for an action-packed getaway.

As you approach the property, you will find a designated off-road parking space available just outside the cottage, so you can unload your bags with ease.

Discover the sitting room, where you can cosy up on the large corner sofa and enjoy a film from the Smart TV, with a woodburning stove to provide a gentle warmth.

Gather in the spacious dining area and take a seat at the table to talk about your day and enjoy a drink whilst the chef of the group gets acquainted in the kitchen, fitted with a whole host of appliances, including an electric double oven and gas hob, microwave, and fridge.

The useful utility room includes a washing machine, tumble dryer and freestanding under the counter freezer, it also provides a space to store walking boots and outdoor gear and also includes two drying racks for those days when you have been caught out in the rain.

Take the evening outside to the patio, offering some outdoor furniture where you can savour the last of the summer sun on a warm evening.

Climbing the stairs, you will reach the bedrooms, including the master with a super king-size bed and contemporary en-suite bathroom, where you can recover with a soothing soak, and you will find another king-size bedroom served by a sleek shower room.

When you’re ready to venture out, pop on your walking boots and stroll through the town of Kirkby Lonsdale, where you will find a good wealth of independent shops, excellent pubs, cafés and restaurants for when you want a night off the kitchen.

Be sure to visit the magnificent three-arched bridge, the 14th century Devils Bridge, also worth visiting is the captivating Ruskin’s View which can be accessed via the 86 Radical Steps, where you can take in the lovely views of Lune Valley and Underley Hall.

Stroll along the beautiful Ingleton Waterfalls Trails, giving you chance to soak up the natural splendour of the area, while the White Scar Cave is sure to impress with subterranean passages, caverns and waterfalls, with an eco-friendly visitor centre.

Alternatively, head into the Lake District where you can enjoy a leisurely cruise across Lake Windermere before settling down for afternoon tea in one of the many tea rooms in Bowness-on-Windermere.

Lonsdale Cottage is a wonderful retreat, fit for a memorable getaway, whatever time of year.

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’.
