A Gem! by MRs Nelxon, Liverpool, November 2015 on September 21st 2016

Courtyard House was truly spectacular - immaculate and very comfortable. We had a wonderful family get together and the house was perfect for our extended family. The children loved the hot tub! The adults spent all their time in the fabulous kitchen. We just loved it and would certainly recommend it. Kirkby Lonsdale is a hidden gem and well worth exploring.

It Lived Up To Expectations! by Mrs Shepherd, Lytham St Annes, April 2016 on September 21st 2016

This is the second time we have visited Courtyard House and, yet again, it lived up to expectations.The house, décor, furnishings and surroundings are wonderful and we loved the riverside walk, local amenities and then relaxing back in the kitchen, lounge or hot tub! We will certainly be visiting again and again. Thank you to the owners who should feel so proud of their beautiful house.
