Town: Mid way between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District and in the heart of the Lune Valley, the attractive market town of Kirkby Lonsdale makes an excellent spot for a family vacation. Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, this lovely town holds a 13th Century market charter, a tradition that still continues every Thursday. Market day is an ideal opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive shops in the town or the many 17th and 18th Century buildings that can be seen throughout the settlement. As a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, the Lune Valley is home to the medieval âDevil's Bridge', which can still be seen spanning the river. Throughout the area there are many quiet country lanes which are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even on horseback, and the surrounding countryside provides great facilities for tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

A spacious, well appointed and well located cottage set in the Lune valley. Walk just a few yards down the road and you can see the Howgill Fells and the river Lune. Although located with a few other cottages it feels private, and the owners were very helpful and welcoming. We had a memorable holiday and would certainly consider staying again. Kirkby Lonsdale (a few miles away) has a good local supermarket and plenty of pubs/restaurants.

Stable Cottage is a lovely holiday home. Very comfortable and has every thing you need for a good holiday. The owners were very nice and welcoming. Set on a quiet country road but near to KirkbyLonsdale with its interesting shops and restaurants.We would certainly use Sykes Cottages again as they were extremely helpful when we were booking the cottage

The Stables was a very comfortable, well equipped place. There was plenty of room for the six of us.
The layout would not suit all, with the living accommodation upstairs and bedrooms/bathroom downstairs.
The views from the living area were very nice indeed. The location meant that families with young children would need to travel on very narrow roads for every need, and the roads were really the only options for walking as the footpaths went through fields with cattle with young. We had dogs so this was not ideal for them.
The owner was helpful and obliging.
