Welcome to Kirkby Lonsdale

Kirkby Lonsdale is a famously picturesque Cumbrian town, renowned for its photogenic charm, but its most enchanting aspect is possibly the one glimpsed from the foot of Collier’s Lane in High Casterton. This elevated vantage point to the east of the River Lune offers a tantalising vista of the town as it must have appeared to travellers for centuries: an enchanting network of mellow stone edifices separated by narrow cobbled lanes and framed by a pastoral landscape of rare beauty.

Today, Kirkby Lonsdale retains much of its age-old appeal – with a 21st-century twist. The splendid historic buildings – many dating back hundreds of years - that line the Kirkby Lonsdale quaint streets and squares now accommodate an impressive range of independent shops, cafes, pubs, hotels and restaurants, together offering a unique experience that’s increasingly difficult to find on the modern high street.
