The property

A beautiful, homely stone-built cottage, just off the main street, tucked in the back lanes of Kirkby Lonsdale.

Lune Cottage is a wonderful retreat for those wishing to explore both the Yorkshire Dales and the magnificent Lake District, boasting a classic cottage interior, suited to two couples or a group of four.

From the pretty stone flagged courtyard, step into the bright and quirky kitchen, with unusual skylights flooding in light over the well-equipped space, it is complete with all you need to rustle up delicious meals during your self-catered stay, including an electric oven, gas hob, fridge and freezer.

The bench seating at the dining table offers a social spot to enjoy your meals, or sit with a glass of wine or two before you head out to one of the town's lovely restaurants to dine.

Continue into the sitting room, where a woodburning stove can warm you up after a brisk country walk, with a fabulous Smart TV to entertain, settle on either the sofa or armchair, admiring the traditional features like the stone fireplace and cottage windows.

Follow the steep and narrow cottage stairs up to the first floor, and find a lovely super king-size bedroom, which can be a twin on request with zip/link features, while across the landing is the shared bathroom, with a bath and shower over.

Travel another set of stairs to the second floor if you're staying in the second charming king-size bedroom, with this one boasting a beautiful wrought-iron bed frame, beneath the lofty eaves, with pretty views over the streets and beyond.

Head into the centre of town via a short stroll and discover some excellent shops and local businesses, from award-winning butchers and delicatessens, to highly-rated eateries and pubs scattered along the bustling streets.

For an easy morning stroll, walk through the churchyard and head to Ruskin's View, following the path and coming to a breath-taking panorama of the Lune Valley and Underley Hall, with this famous scene being the inspiration for many wonderful works of art and literature.

Don't miss the chance to enjoy the magnificent three-arched Devil's Bridge, now closed to traffic, it presents a unique resting spot for picnics, or a delightful stop on a walk, with the name coming from a deep impression in the stone at the apex of the bridge, referred to as the devil's hand print!

Head to nearby Ingleton to enjoy the natural beauty of the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, boasting stunning waterfalls and oak woodland, this four and a half mile route is a fantastic outing.

Head into the Yorkshire Dales for an abundance of walking routes and trails, or travel over to the Lake District for a boat trip on Lake Windermere, Wainwright's walks, the Beatrix Potter experience, and so much more.

Delight in a relaxing break in Kirkby Lonsdale at Lune 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’.
