The Old Stables

This traditional townhouse is set over three floors in a quiet courtyard in the centre of the popular market town of Kirkby Lonsdale. Overlooking the churchyard, this upside down cottage has been fully renovated to provide a first-class holiday home of considerable merit. Charming throughout, this delightful cottage is brimming with character with excellent use of contemporary styling and colour to produce a perfect blend of the old and the new. The accommodation begins on the ground floor with a twin bedroom, a king-size double room and a modern shower room, all very stylish and providing flexible sleeping arrangements. The first floor boasts the open plan living area with a superb corner suite and original beams which greet guests as they enter the room. There is also a small dining area overlooking the churchyard and a bespoke, well-equipped kitchen which seamlessly combine to create a great space, ideal for families and friends to get together and enjoy themselves. This room is enhanced by the natural light from the windows which creates an airy feel throughout. The open plan staircase leads to a second floor nook on the landing which is small, but useful for reading a good book or for the children to escape the parents and play. The main bedroom is spacious and has a superb super king-size bed, beautiful old ceiling beams, a lovely sitting area and a luxurious en-suite with a bath, ideal for a long soak after conquering the nearby Howgills. Outside, a small courtyard leads to an arched ginnel which opens directly onto the high street, a vibrant place of old curiosity shops, award-winning butchers, bakers, excellent old pubs, fine dining restaurants, excellent cafés, sweet shops and much, much more in this ever popular old market 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 Yorkshire Dales and explore the White Scar Caves at Ingleton, tackle the Three Peaks challenge or head west into the Lake District and visit the bustling towns of Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside, both situated on the shores of Lake Windermere. This is a delightful base to explore this fantastic area, providing you want to leave the appeal of this first-class holiday cottage!
