The Cumbria/Lake District

There is more to Cumbria than its world-famous natural environment. There are many towns and villages to explore, whether nestled in valleys, on the side of a lake or along the coastline.

From the cosmopolitan city of Carlisle, gateway to Hadrian's Wall Country, and Keswick in the north to the charming market towns of Ulverston and Kirkby Lonsdale and the maritime town of Barrow-in-Furness in the south; from the historical market town of Cockermouth and the harbour town of Whitehaven along the west coast to the pretty towns of Penrith and Appleby in the Eden Valley to the east. And in the central Lakes you will find the ever-popular Kendal, Windermere, Ambleside and Grasmere. Each place has its own story to tell and a character to discover.

Kirkby Lonsdale

The picturesque market town of Kirkby Lonsdale on the banks of the River Lune is ideally located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and within easy reach of the Lake District; its attractive setting epitomised by the glorious view up the Lune Valley from Ruskin's View.

The centre is a pleasing mix of elegant 18th-century buildings and stone cottages huddled around cobbled courtyards and narrow alleyways with evocative names such as Salt Pie Lane and Jingling Lane. Traditional butchers, bakers and ‘the best independent cheese shop in the UK' (2007) jostle alongside designer jewellery, fashion and home décor outlets. Nearby, St Mary's Church presides over the ‘Rainbow Parish' - an ecclesiastical area that includes ‘daughter' churches at Barbon, Casterton, Hutton Roof, Lupton, Mansergh, Middleton and Preston Patrick.

Surrounding the town is a rolling landscape of winding lanes and verdant green fields bordered by high hedges and dry stone walls. The broad valley of the Lune contains Casterton, ‘the settlement by a Roman fort', dominated by a prestigious public school. To the north is Barbon, a cluster of houses next to a tumbling beck and the venue for car and motorcycle hill climbs. Further up the Lune Valley is Middleton, a scattered community with an ancient hall in its midst. To the west is rolling farmland around Lupton, Mansergh and Old Town leading up to the prominent limestone outcrops of Hutton Roof.

We appreciate the feedback about our check-out times however our housekeeper only has a short amount of time to service the house, to the high standards our guests expect, between guests and this does allow our guests to have an earlier check-in time of 1530.

"Comfortable Cottage in Central KL"

We were three adult walkers. Once we became familiar with KL's car parking the location was ideal for restaurants, pubs and shops. Being located in the town centre a certain amount of noise was e… More

As our guest points out the cottage is centrally located and occasionally the customers from the restaurant garden in the main street can be heard, however they are a very considerate to the local residents and are keen not to disturb.

Unfortunately the cottage circuit breakers are located next to the mains electricity supply inside our housekeepers supply cupboard. As we are a child and pet friendly cottage this needs to be locked as it contains cleaning products and other supplies that must be kept out of the reach of our little guests. We are however always available on the telephone should our guests have any problems. Consequently, as always, we were able to assist our guests as soon as they discovered the power problem.
