  • "Lovely large house in a very quiet and peaceful spot, the photos don't do it justice."

    The kitchen was very well equipped and the owner left a very generous, good quality welcome pack for us which was much appreciated. Lovely bedrooms all with modern en suite walk in rainfall showers. The back garden was a real sun trap and very tranquil with views over the lake. An added bonus was watching the Peregrines nesting on the cliffs right opposite us. All in all a wonderful place to stay, highly recommended.

  • "A beautiful house overlooking Jackdaw Quarry where we enjoyed watching the dive centre activity."

    Wonderful views and close access to wildlife environments. The house is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Walking from the house has to be along narrow roads but once you get to the canal, great!

  • "The place was both comfy and stunning and the view always interesting - the noise from the Diving Centre next door was a bit annoying - it was hard to read a book outside in the peace and quiet but the passing swimmers and ducks kept my dog entertained so the trade-off worked for me."

  • "Everything about this holiday was perfect, from the organisation of key collection, to the amazing welcome hamper!"

    Harry even went above and beyond by forwarding on to us a parcel that arrived for us after we had left the cottage! Thank you

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Very well appointed with great facilities. The people at the Diving Centre couldn't have been more helpful, even for those of us just going in for a swim. (They lent us wet suits and other kit). The cottage is in an area we hadn't explored before but there are lots of lovely places for wet and dry weather within 30-40 mins drive. We hope to come back!

  • "We are just back from 3 days at Casa Loma."

    Communication with Sykes was excellent - we booked at short notice and our last-minute request for all the beds to be made up as doubles was processed. On arrival we received a warm welcome from Harry who was in the process of dropping off fans to the property due to the extremely hot weather. He also quickly organised a parasol for us at our request. The location of the house is unusual – it overlooks a lake in what was formerly a quarry. The lake is used by the neighbouring diving school which means that throughout the day there is the added interest of watching divers and swimmers. We took up the offer of borrowing wet suits at the diving centre and went swimming – a great experience, especially in the hot weather. The house is clean, spacious, comfortable and finished to a high standard. The cinema/games room is a bonus. The outdoor area is lovely and is equipped with a barbeque, patio heater and comfortable seating / dining furniture. There is no shortage of things to do in the local area but we spent a lot of time in and around the house. The accommodation is not cheap to rent but this is reflected in the standard of accommodation, the complementary access to lake swimming via the diving school and attention to detail such as the generous welcome pack. So, all in all we were very happy with our 3 days at Casa Loma and as well as being extremely relaxing we felt it was a bit out of the ordinary.

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’.
