This ancient Pennine market town is perfectly located for exploring both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Kirkby Lonsdale holiday cottages offer tranquility, spectacular surroundings and the chance to experience life in a traditional Cumbrian community. As you wander through the town, you’ll discover impressive buildings dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, many of which house charming inns, restaurants and shops. For a truly breathtaking view, make your way to the foot of Collier’s Lane, from which the town’s stone buildings and meandering cobbled lanes can be admired. Look out for graceful St Mary the Virgin Church, which is thought to have been built in the early 1100s. In the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale, three bridges cross the River Lune, where Turner created the painting which inspired John Ruskin to remark, ‘I do not know in all my own country, still less in France or Italy, a place more naturally divine’. If you’re here in September, don’t miss the town’s renowned Victorian Fair, where food stalls, live entertainment and an array of costumes create a lively atmosphere on the streets.
