  • Mr Austin

    “The property was very difficult to find, not appearing on Google maps and with no phone signal in the area, so we only had Sykes' directions to go on which could do with improving.”

    There are three bedrooms downstairs, however on our trip one smelled very badly of the cesspit and another had the boiler in (enclosed in a cupboard) so only one bedroom and one bathroom were really useable. One of the taps in the bath kept falling off and both appeared to have been put on the wrong way around. Cleaning in the bathroom also could have been better. ...

    There are three bedrooms downstairs, however on our trip one smelled very badly of the cesspit and another had the boiler in (enclosed in a cupboard) so only one bedroom and one bathroom were really useable. One of the taps in the bath kept falling off and both appeared to have been put on the wrong way around. Cleaning in the bathroom also could have been better. On the positive side, the upstairs is a wonderful space, beautifully converted, in good taste, and with plenty of nice touches like the wood above the windows, lighting and multiple speakers for the hifi system. The underfloor heating was amazing and the place never felt cold (in October). There was zero traffic noise with only birds and a river for sounds. The rainshower and woodburners were nice extras, as was the dishwasher. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery, although a decent bottle opener would have been appreciated and perhaps a pizza tray or similar. The owners seemed very nice, as were the other local people we met.

    Thank you for your feedback. We work very hard to provide a great guest experience for our Customers when they stay I am sorry that you had an issue with a smell at the property. Since reading this feedback, we have attended to the drain at the property & this has now been resolved. The tap on the bath has been fixed & had the above been reported to us during your stay we would have attended to it straight away for you. The directions are the same ones that are provided to all Customers and have not been an issue in the past for anyone. We have provided the same information for many years and the postcode will bring you straight to the cottage using a satnav. I am sorry this was an issue for you. The phone signal can be intermittent dependant on the network that you have as to the signal strength in certain areas of the country. Once again, thank you for your comments as they are very important to us. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Kirkby Lonsdale 3 miles.

The thoughtful conversion of an old stone-built barn and stable block, dating back to 1746, has resulted in this wonderful detached property of much character.

Situated in a pretty position next to Fleshbeck stream in the scattered hamlet of Mansergh, The Old Stables enjoys views over a wooded dell, teeming with bluebells in the spring, and even the occasional deer!

Upside down to take advantage of both the pretty views and the many original exposed timbers, the conversion has been carried out to the highest possible standard including solid oak floors upstairs, and underfloor heating throughout.

The open plan living area has French doors out onto a small balcony, overlooking the garden area and woods.

A magnificent conversion, warm and welcoming, ideal for any time of the year.

Note: This cottage is next to Refs. 916 and 9985, and a short distance from Ref. 10255, together they sleep 22.

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’.
