    Spotless and everything you would need.

  • "Lovely, spotless, well equipped."

    Right in the middle of the village. Good for The Lakes or The Dales. Attentive owner. As it says in the information not good for mobility impaired but OK for a creaky 71 year old! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Lovely clean well equipped cottage."

    Every detail well thought through. Struggled to find it on arrival day and called mobile number - left voicemail. No one got back to us. Noisy during the day from shops/cafes below. Avanti wine bar lovely place friendly staff. Good food . Some shop keepers unfriendly . Lady in chocolat shop treated us like something the cat had dragged in ! Surely holiday makers like us with money to spend are keeping shops like that going ?! Very nice accommodation though.

    Great location, with ease of access to so many beautiful walks, as well as the coast. The apartment itself was spotless, well equipped and so comfortable. The attention to detail was faultless and the owners were incredibly responsive when we had a question. Would happily return.

    Also easy access to lovely walks in the Yorkshire dales. The property was spotlessly clean and Emma had thoughtfully provided fresh milk and tasty cakes!

  • "The cottage was absolutely perfect ."

    The decor , cleanliness , furnishings and even little extras. I had brought an Iron and Hairdryer with me..... unnecessary, I had put it laundry capsules cloths , rubbish bags etc.... unnecessary. Emma had thought of everything. Also to have access to smart TV when the weather was rotten made such a difference. I cannot fault the property in any way whatsoever....... well maybe I can's not for sale !!! Xxx

    The town was a great base for exploring the southern lakes and fells with easy access to other places as only 8 miles from the m6. The town had a lovely variety of shops, pubs and places to eat with a fab bakery. Would definitely stay again

  • "Such a beautiful home in a lovely little town."

    The hosts were friendly and accommodating, helping us to source a DVD player when requested. The house was very clean and comfortable, close to good amenities and had everything we needed. The hosts shared great information about local parking, which was close to the property and always had spaces available- the 7 day pass we purchased was also able to be used around the whole south Lake District. Enjoyed going to the Thursday market in the town sq and making friends with the owner of Tata's Cafe (and her adorable dog), which is located just beside the property. Overall, a wonderful stay!

  • "The property supposedly hosts 3-4 people."

    There is one small double bed and two tiny single beds, which are clearly for small children. The beds were definitely not long enough, hence, accuracy of description and comfort were poor.

    We are sorry to hear that you found the property uncomfortable during your stay. Both the double bed and single bed are full size, however, there is additional toddler bed which would only be suitable for small children which is mentioned in the description. If you had any concerns before you were due to travel we would have been more than happy to discuss the bed configuration with you. Property Owner

    The flat was lovely although a little difficult to find so I would say better instructions on where it is, also it says you can park on Market Place but you can't buy 3 to 7 day passes there best to advise people to park in new road 1 or 2 carparks

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".
