  • "Very clever layout and comfort."

    Great views, close proximity to various points of interest. Good for cycling and walking. Short distance to the caves or The Lakes in the Lake District area. Even if the weather isn't the best, there's always something to do in the Dales. The host of very useful and nice, we even joined a sports fair in the village on the Jubilee day. Amazing day, amazing visit, we will return again.

  • "From the moment we stepped through the front door of the cottage it felt warm and welcoming, smelled amazing and was spotlessly clean."

    We had lots of goodies waiting for us in the kitchen too. Beds were really comfy and there were plenty of useful kitchen bits for self catering. The views from the lounge and kitchen windows are amazing and the cows were so well behaved that we never heard them, although it was nice to watch them come and go from the milking shed. (No smells or flies either!) Hosts were really friendly and helpful and checked in with us the morning after we arrived and chatted to us if our paths crossed during the week. Would definitely recommend stay here again.

  • "Hawkrigg Cottage is very clean, comfortable and had all the facilities we needed for a home away from home break."

    Emma is very warm and welcoming. The cottage has amazing views and a lovely sheltered courtyard that gets the afternoon sun. The cottage is set in the middle of a working farm but it is still incredibly peaceful. We would love to go back.

    The cottage is finished to an exceptionally high standard with equal attention to all your self catering needs, nothing seems to have been overlooked. Emma and family are very welcoming and on hand to help with local suggestions on walks, places to eat etc. All in all an ideal holiday home.

  • "We loved our stay at hawkriigg cottage."

    Right between the lakes and the dales meant it was a great base to explore and get the most out of our holiday. Kirkby Lonsdale only a couple of minutes by car was lovely with a nice array of shops and pubs. Also a great river for the hotter weather, the kids loved paddling! The cottage itself was exactly as described, bright and spacious, finished really nicely and right in the middle of a working dairy farm. And although it was a working farm you wouldn’t really know it most of the time, it still felt fairly secluded and peaceful and a great place to relax. If in the area in the future would love to stay again.

  • "We love privacy and peace and quiet."

    The house was very nice inside. We didn't realise we were right in the midst of a 'working farm' and milking started at 5 or 6 am daily. I was disappointed there was no private garden. Photos can be a little deceptive. Also there was a complex Lune Valley Lodges just behind our cottage, part of the same concern. Thankfully we weren't disturbed by them, but we would not have chosen to be within earshot. The owner was friendly when she returned from holiday midweek.

    Reviewed by JulietAug 2019

  • "The cottage was well furnished."

    The kitchen had more utensils, etc. than one normally finds in self catering accomodation. Instructions for using all the kitchen appliances were available. The owner came to check we were settled in, she was lovely and very helpful. I would totally recommend this cottage. We have a son and daughter ages 7 and 9 and they both loved their room and the games, books, etc. available to them in the cot room or playroom as they called it! Sky sports and movies were brilliant bonus and the wifi signal didn't falter once.

  • "Hawkrigg Cottage is absolutely lovely."

    Set in a beautiful area with stunning views from the windows. Lovely to see the cows go for milking and the lambs, dogs and hens. The cottage is very comfortable - especially the bed! We slept so well in this quiet location. When the sun shone it was very warm - like sitting in a greenhouse. Great shower and heating too. Ideally placed to visit the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. We also visited Blackpool Tower Ballroom - just an hour down the motorway and a must for Strictly fans! Emma (and Nellie the dog) were very friendly and on hand should you need anything. Definitely return to this lovely cottage.

    The bathroom is so luxurious and the living space is comfortable, modern and well equipped for families. We spent many happy hours relaxing there. The view is beautiful and we were made to feel so welcome by the adjacent house (the owners). The cottage is well located - you can go for walks from the cottage itself, or drive into near Kirkby Lonsdale for an ice cream or some shopping. We can't wait to book again!

  • "We had a beautiful stay at Hawkrigg."

    The views are spectacular and there's so much to do nearby. Huge favourites were the Ingleborough trail and cave and driving out over the Yorkshire dales to Hawes. Kirkby Lonsdale is a lovely town - we particularly enjoyed walking along the river by the devil's bridge up to Ruskin's view, as well as trips to Lancaster and Morecombe. The cottage itself is very comfortable, with lovely little touches like books and games for the children, and Emma was very welcoming and helpful. The attic bedroom did get a little warm at times, but was more than compensated for by the lovely shower!

    Nestled against the hills with an amazing view, it couldn't have been more perfect for our purpose, which was a writing retreat.

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’.
