  • "Excellent cottage in a good location for visiting York dales main towns."

    The accomodation was comfortable with a modern finish. Whoop Hall could not offer meals but there was plenty of local resteraunts nearby.

    Thanks for your feedback. Sorry about the restaurant at Whoop Hall, but it is separate to the holiday cottage. Property Owner

  • "Lark Meadows is a superb cottage, well equipped, clean and comfortable with a lovely outdoor patio area to sit and enjoy the views."

    We loved returning from a day out and relaxing together as a family; the cottage has a great supply of games and DVDs, and my daughter loved the sofa upstairs in the "snug", it was the perfect place for reading. We have previously stayed on the Meadows in another cottage so we were familiar with the site, it was wonderful to return to the area and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would highly recommend Lark Meadows as a relaxing base to explore Kirkby Lonsdale town, and enjoy getting out and about around the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, there's so much nearby to see and do. We would definitely book this cottage again!

    Thank you for your lovely comments, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Nice quiet area very close to the main A65 but traffic not noticeable at all."

    Farmers fields directly to the side and rear. Asked at the gym/pool about a day pass and they wanted £25 for 2 hours. You can walk into Kirby Lonsdale but there's quite a section on the A65 with no footpath so it's not pleasant. You can however cross the A65 and walk along a public path across a farmers field (with livestock) into Kirby Lonsdale and all around the smaller villages on quiet lanes. Some nice walking maps of the area on the mantle piece. The house had nice quality bedding and towels. Heating system was a bit of a learning curve but we got it to work. Kitchen is getting a little tired but everything worked. Cleaning was very good in some areas but left a little bit to be desired in others.

  • "Lark Meadow is a lovely property on a unique development just outside Kirkby Lonsdale."

    It has wonderful views from the patio of the fields and meadows which give the development it’s name. The property itself was very comfortable and clean. I needed to contact the owner about a couple of minor points and she replied promptly, which I was pleased about. We have stayed in several properties in the Meadows and this ranks at the top. We particularly loved Kirkby and Lonsdale, two hand made sheep resting on the hearth. They made us smile every time we came into the lounge!

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. Property Owner

    Located in lovely surroundings, perfect for our weeks holiday. Would definitely stay again. I know the next-door hotel has no connection to property but it's a shame they don't do day membership for their leisure facilities.

    Everything you could wish for provided and of good quality. Thr outlook at the back was fields full of sheep and lambs. The only disappointment was the pool at Whoop Hall wasn’t open.

  • "Excellent property, well equipped with everything you may need."

    Roku stick is an excellent addition. Pity the membership to the leisure club hadn’t been continued, we ended up driving to Kendal to go for a swim, sauna and steam room.

    Thanks for the feedback, during and post COVID, the leisure club opening hours have been very sporadic, therefore we are monitoring the situation with a view to renewing membership in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house with a very private feel despite there being other houses nearby."

    Great views and lots to do in the area. We had a very pleasant week. On a practical note, the dishwasher leaked water all over the floor when we used it (we only used it once because of this). The dvd player was very temperamental so it didn't always recognise dvds but we were able to use our laptop instead. Also the water didn't drain too well in the wet shower room downstairs so I had to dry it so that we didn't all get wet feet when we went to the loo afterwards. A door on the shower might be more practical.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have looked into the issue with the dishwasher, this has now been resolved. We have taken the other comments on board. Once again, thank you for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed the property. Property Owner

    The only trouble from neighbours were sheep and cows, such a lovely view to look out to. The owner was so lovely when we had an unfortunate accident and sorted it without any fuss to ourselves. We would highly recommend and hope to go back again in the not too distant future.

The property

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.

Be sure to stop at the magnificent Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall which has a vibrant Topiary Garden where you will find impressive views of the Lakeland Mountains, Howgills and Morecambe Bay nearby.

From Kendal, visitors can easily access South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales, Lake Windemere and the Lake District National Park.

Bring your family and friends to share a memorable stay in Lark Meadow, where you will feel refreshed after a getaway in the country.

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".
