Perched on the outskirts of the charming market town of Kirkby Lonsdale in Cumbria is this idyllic cottage, Lark Meadow, set on the grounds of Whoop Hall Country Club.

Set over two floors and sleeping up to four guests, Lark Meadow is a delightful getaway for two couples or a small family, where they can enjoy views of the expansive green countryside right from their very own private patio, and be within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, as well as Devils Bridge and Kendal Castle.

As you approach the property, you will find an off-road parking space available just outside of the cottage, so you can unload your bags with ease.

Be welcomed into the spacious open-plan living space with kitchen, dining area and sitting area, where you can cosy up on the large corner sofa and enjoy a film night with friends in front of the gas effect fire, or whip up delicious treats in the fully equipped kitchen, settling down to enjoy your meal around the dining table and toasting to a wonderful holiday.

As the evening draws to a close, you have a choice of two bedrooms, the first being a ground-floor twin, where you can snuggle up in the tastefully decorated room with TV, perfect for those last Sunday mornings.

Completing the ground floor is the shower room, where you can freshen up for the day in style.

Climbing the stairs, you will discover the second bedroom, a king-size mezzanine with glass balcony overlooking the sitting room and views overlooking the lush green fields, for added privacy there is an en-suite bathroom where you can enjoy a hot soak with your favourite book before climbing into bed.

Prepare a pot of tea and enjoy it with your guests at the lovely outdoor dining table as you discuss plans for the day.

Grab your walking boots and venture into the beautifully unspoilt town of Kirkby Lonsdale, where you will find a good selection of independent shops, excellent pubs, cafes and restaurants for when you want a night off from the kitchen.

Whilst there, you must pay a visit to the magnificent three-arched bridge, the 14th century Devils Bridge, also worth visiting is the captivating Ruskin’s View which can be reached via the 86 Radical Steps, where you can experience the breath-taking views of Lune Valley and Underley Hall.

Explore your local surroundings further with a trip to the well-known market town of Kendal, where you can visit the remarkable Abbot Hall to view fine art, delve into history with a stop at the 12th-century ruins of Kendal Castle or get to know your local area at the Kendal Museum.

For those sport-lovers there are a host of activities available to get involved with from football, cycling and golf, to snow sports and rock-climbing at the Lakeland Climbing Centre.

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’.
