This Grade II listed stone built townhouse (built c.1650) is set over three floors in a quiet courtyard in the centre of the popular market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, offering a warm and friendly atmosphere in both the daytime and the evenings, it's a vibrant town with lots to explore at all times of the day. Within a short walk of all the town’s amenities, this delightful cottage has been recently renovated to provide a stylish holiday home of considerable merit. Full of character throughout, combining many of the original features, old beams, a stained glass window and feature fireplace with a careful selection of soft furnishings to create a mix of vintage and contemporary to this quaint holiday home. A perfect blend of the old and the new. From the courtyard, guests have a choice of entry, the stable doors lead into a modern, well-equipped kitchen area and the external stone staircase leads to the first floor sitting room. The sitting room gives access to the kitchen and the upper floor dining area and provides a lovely place to sit and relax and take in the many features of the room, such as the old beams and the feature fireplace. The top floor provides a spacious master bedroom with king size bed overlooked by two Velux windows which provide a lovely light throughout the room. A second smaller bedroom, with a double bed provides flexible sleeping arrangements and the cottage is just perfect for two couples or a small family to enjoy this wonderful, historic old town. A modern bathroom with relaxing bath with thermostatic shower over complements the two bedrooms. Outside, there is a small sitting area, ideal for sitting out with a relaxing drink and taking in the beautiful gardens. Courtyard Cottage is at the heart of the action, its shared courtyard hosts access for four dwellings, with a cafe next door to the cottage you will awaken to the smell of freshly baked goods. A ginnel leads from the courtyard which opens directly onto the high street, where you can find the Snooty Fox pub opposite the cafe. The Town Square, fronted by the Royal Hotel, is just a few strides in the other direction. The private Courtyard shelters you from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding local area, yet the sounds and smells can catch your senses on the breeze when lounging in the courtyard having a well-earned rest. In the town there is a lovely park, the famous Devils Bridge, Ruskins View and the River Lune meandering its way down the valley. For a perfect day trip, head off to the Lake District or the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, explore the Three Peaks, visit the ever popular Skipton, the bustling towns of Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside, both situated on the shores of Lake Windermere. A great base for couples looking for that something very special, a great holiday cottage to invite friends and family along and explore this fantastic area.
