Town: The village of Hornby, in the Lune Valley, is bordered by the Lake District to the north, and the Yorkshire Dales to the east. Set on an old pack-horse route, Hornby is situated close to where the River Wenning joins the River Lune. Hornby Castle is set on a high hill overlooking the river and is known as the subject of one of Turner's best-loved paintings. Consisting of a scattering of traditional houses, a church, two pubs and a Post Office with tearoom, there are several quiet walks around the village and other walks and places of interest close by. Nearby Kirkby Lonsdale is a popular town, with the Old Devil's Bridge a delightful spot to stop for a coffee beside the River Lune, while a number of antique shops and curios can be found in the town, along with an excellent selection of restaurants and pubs.

The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable with the added bonus of a real fire for those cold autumnal nights. Comfortably slept a family of five and made an excellent base for us to visit family in Lancashire.
Enjoyed our visits to Lancaster, Clitheroe and Skipton - and all in between!
Comfortable flat in a good location

We had an enjoyable wek in this comfortable flat - the owners were friendly and helpful. The village is well located between Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale with general stores and butcher as well as a good pub.
