Ideally placed in the delightful town of Kirkby Lonsdale, this spacious holiday home is the perfect choice for celebrating special occasions with family or friends surrounded by fantastic walks and historic towns and villages.

If you are looking for a luxurious holiday cottage for up to eight people where you can relax and enjoy not only the Yorkshire Dales but the Lake District too, then this house surely fits the bill. Lovingly designed and brought to life by an owner with an elegant eye for modern design and a flair for harnessing light and space, it's sure to tick all the boxes. Boasting sumptuous contemporary furnishings, high spec bathrooms and appliances, cosy underfloor heating and even a private hot tub, this is definitely a holiday home you'll want to return to time and time again.

Kirkby Lonsdale is a gem of a town nestled in a privileged position between the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland. It's a paradise of quirky independent shops, highly regarded eateries and even a traditional weekly market all nestled by the lovely River Lune. The house is just a short walk from all that this delightful town has to offer. Why not potter along to Devil's Bridge or take the river path to 'Ruskin's View' along the Lune? Immortalised in a painting by Turner, you can take a picnic and admire this iconic view more than a century on. Take a walk down Salt Pie Lane in the town centre to soak up the history or treat younger visitors to the Enchanted Chocolate Mine beneath the chocolate shop!

If you'd like to venture slightly further afield during your stay then you'll be well rewarded. Kirkby Lonsdale is perfectly placed on the western side of the Yorkshire Dales and within easy reach of the Eastern Lake District, making it a fantastic spring board for exploration. You can catch the picturesque Carlisle to Settle Railway at Dent or visit the magical White Scar Cave system near Ingleborough. Sedbergh, known as England's book town, is 11 miles away and well worth a visit. While beautiful Windermere in the southern Lake District is just a half hour's drive. Of course, you might be just as happy staying at home relaxing in the complimentary robes or soaking in the hot tub in the indulgent surroundings of the house.

On arrival at the house guests enter via a glass porch with plenty of space for coats and boots. From here it's onward to the stunning open-plan kitchen and dining space. Bathed in light from French doors and a window looking out over the town to Ingleborough itself, it's a wonderfully sociable room to gather.

The well-equipped kitchen has been thoughtfully designed to appeal to the foodies among you with four counter-top induction hobs, a fitted double fan oven and eye-height microwave. The high quality kitchen also features a large integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and all the crockery and cookware you'll need concealed in beautiful bespoke units. There's a breakfast bar and three stools making for sociable food prep and a large modern dining table with plenty of space for long post-dinner chats about your adventures. Use the Smart TV for music or curl up in one of the two armchairs and choose your own viewing when you'd rather not watch with the rest of the party on the main TV.

Moving through to the stylish living room, guests can relax in the sumptuous grey wool seating arranged around the modern gas fire and Smart TV. With well chosen lighting and luxurious throws, it makes a warm and elegant room to spend evenings when you'd rather not go out. The ground floor also has a handy utility room with sink, washing machine and tumble dryer along with a downstairs WC.

Upstairs to the four stunning bedrooms. The owner has created relaxing spaces with subtle colour schemes, colourful wall art and stylish soft furnishings. All four have hanging frames and chests of drawers for storage. The three super-king-size bedrooms each have high spec en-suite shower rooms, all with mixer showers and drencher heads; the largest of these rooms also boasts a wall mounted TV, French doors and a Juliette balcony. The fourth bedroom is a king-size room with a gorgeous view of Ingleborough and Barbon Low Fell in the distance. Next to this is the impressive family bathroom. Light and stylish with a large freestanding bath and separate shower enclosure with mixer shower and drencher head, it makes a wonderful place to sooth tired muscles from your outdoor exertions.

Outside there is parking for up to four cars directly outside the house, there is space in the garage to lock bikes and boats should you be bringing them along. To the rear of the house is a multi-level terraced private garden with a fabulous hot tub for four and dining furniture for making the most of sunny days. What an indulgent gem of a cottage to unwind with friends or family.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
