  • "Very very nice place and the location is fabulous."

    The property has everything you will need although a few issues with the cleanliness. Spoke to the owner who made amends for the issues. Would love to return as the location and facilities are amazing.

    Thank you for your feedback and glad that you enjoyed your stay at "The Meadows" We are sorry about the initial issue that you had but glad that we were able to sort it quickly for you. Hope to see you again soon Peter & Jane Douglas Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at the meadows."

    Everything you could need couldn't fault a thing. The pool facilities were a bonus especially for the kids although a bit on the cold side for me. We relaxed as soon as we arrived. We will definitely stay again.

    Sara, thanks for the fantastic feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The leisure centre only told me yesterday that there was an issue with the pool heating, it’s now fixed so sorry about that. Look forward to you staying again in 2024 Peter and Jane Douglas Property Owner

  • "The property was perfect and had everything you needed."

    I was familiar with Kirkby Lonsdale as I lived in Kendal for 25 years. The use of the leisure facilities was a bonus and although I did not use them myself my friend used them quite often. It was her first visit to the area so the location was ideal.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you book again in the future . Regards Peter and Jane Douglas Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Very comfortable and well-maintained. It was a little tricky to juggle the heating as the downstairs bedroom gets cooler than the upstairs.

    Good location for visiting the Dales and Kirkby Lonsdale is on the doorstep which has a few nice pubs and shops.

    Glad you had a great time. Thank you so much for the fantastic feedback. Peter & Jane Property Owner

  • "It’s a lovely place… BUT the property needed a deep clean."

    It was tidy but not clean. Lots of thick dust under kids beds, cobwebs, lots of dead flies, moths and spiders. We stayed there before and was really looking forward to it but it wasn’t up to scratch for the money we paid. Such a shame as the location and facilities are great.

  • "Hi there, Me and the kids really enjoyed our stay."

    My children liked the open space downstairs and the modern feel. Also access to the pool was easy and the staff were lovely. We enjoyed the evening views and walked up to see the cows and sheep grazing outside. The view of the sunset too. The children opted to sleep in the main double room with me. The balcony does pose a slight risk to children so I made sure my youngest did not attempt any climbing; it would be an idea to consider a safer alternative there. All amenities were excellent; we went home with all our washing done and dried I could not ask for more in terms of usefulness. Access to Netflix and shows etc was of huge benefit too. We would visit again.

  • "Great location for the lakes."

    Close to Kirby Lonsdale for many good pubs and restraunts also great food at Black Bull in Sedburgh. 4 adults plus 1 baby found our stay to be a great experience. We would definately recommend a stay here. However, I wouldn't go to Whoop Hall, the pub nearby. Such a pitty it has so much potential.

    Thanks for the great feedback Tim. Glad you and the family enjoyed your stay. Peter & Jane Property Owner

    Maybe just worth mentioning in listing, there’s is one step into property, no steps on ground floor facilities inside property. So disabled know fully the accessibility of the property. Fantastic property, first class, loved it all, will be back! Thanks.

    The accomodation was very clean and spacious. Its a short distance to many tourist attractions and restuarants. It was great to be able to use the swimming pool and Gymn facilities within walking distance. Having Neflix was a bonus. I will definately recommend staying at this accomodation.

  • "Beautifully presented."

    Amazing amount of space! Great location for walking and cycling. Pity the walk to Kirkby Lonsdale is on the grass verge - but fortunately only 500m before a footpath through the fields to Devil's Bridge. Could probably get to Cowan Bridge through the fields to the caravan park? Hope to return soon.

  • "The property is lovely and we had a very enjoyable stay."

    When we arrived the house hadn't been cleaned at all. This was very disappointing and meant we had to change our plans and then the kids didn't have time to swim. The owners got in touch with the cleaners and they arrived and did the job. It was cleaned well after this, the only problem was that they only left us 2 towels for a family of 4. Had this cleaning problem not happened we would rate it very highly as the area and house is great.

    Thank you for your review . We are pleased you found the property lovely and enjoyed your stay. With regards to the cleaning we apologise again for this . Unfortunately, we were all let down by the cleaning company and have been assured this will not happen again. As soon as we were made aware we did everything we could from a distance to put this right . I understand the owner of the cleaning company came to the property with the cleaners and left a bottle of Prosecco as an apology. We hope that the fact that we paid for a meal out for your family, whilst the clean was done, showed how we appreciated the inconvenience and that this should not have happened . There should also be two towels per person left out at the property. This review is the first we have heard that this was not the case ? This is something else we are now taking up with the cleaners . I hope that what happened did not spoil the rest of your stay and hopefully you will visit our property again in the future. Kind Regards Peter and Jane Property Owner

The property

Uniquely positioned within the fabulous grounds of Whoop Hall, and boasts far reaching views over the Lune Valley, and a stone's throw away from Kirkby Lonsdale, rests this remarkable holiday home, 15 The Meadows.

Overlooking the scenic countryside of Cumbria, 15 The Meadows offers an idyllic base for a small family looking to explore the delights of The Lakes.

Kick off your shoes as you step over the threshold and enter into the open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with a contemporary interior and flooded with natural light welcomed in through the towering windows, providing a homely atmosphere and enticing you to put your feet up and enjoy a moment of television.

The designated chef will be delighted by the amply-equipped kitchen tucked away in the corner of the sociable space, housing all of the modern amenities required to prepare a heart-warming meal, including a handy dishwasher so there's no time wasted doing the washing up.

Gather your loved ones around the nearby dining table to serve up your tasty treats, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, step outside for a leisurely seat on the patio to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining, enveloped in the tranquil greenery of the surrounding gardens.

When the day draws to a close, head back inside and prepare for bed with a luxurious soak amongst the bubbles in the stylish family bathroom before retiring for the evening to one of the two thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms, with the choice between the master bedroom, fit with a sumptuous king-size bed and set on the first-floor in a mezzanine style, or the charming twin room.

In the morning, kick start your day with an invigorating rinse in either the first floor family bathroom or the spacious walk-in shower, set on the ground-floor for your convenience, and caffeinate with a steaming mug of coffee as you enjoy a moment of peace and quiet with a seat in the snug, delving into the pages of a captivating book.

Pack the essentials and head to the on-site leisure pool where you can enjoy a relaxing swim before heading off on foot to get better acquainted with your surroundings, or end each day in style with a luxurious seat in the sauna, unwinding amongst the warmth of the dry heat.

Take the short stroll into the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale and soak in the sights of the striking Devil's Bridge that towers over the waters of the River Lune, following the banks of the river towards The Radical Steps, providing a steep climb to Ruskins View, boasting panoramic views across the stunning scenery of the countryside of Cumbria from the top.

After working up an appetite, enjoy a bite to eat at one of the many eateries that line the streets, varying from quaint tea rooms to traditional country pubs, or head to the local supermarket to pick up some ingredients to rustle up some culinary delights from the comfort of your holiday home.

Lace up your walking boots and venture further afield to explore the scenic landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, stretching over 600 square miles of rolling hills, deep valleys and open moorland, homing thrilling sights and attractions worth visiting, such as the Subterranean cavern of White Scar Cave and the cascading waterfall of Stainforth Force.

Whether you're looking to unwind or experience adventure, choose 15 The Meadows as a base that you'll be delighted to return to.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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’.
