Perched above the meandering River Lune where you can enjoy Ruskins View and Devil's Bridge, Kirkby Lonsdale enjoys stunning views of both Ingleborough and the Howgills. Kirkby Lonsdale is a blend of picture perfect stone cottages, cobbled courtyards and elegant 18th century buildings, linked together by little lanes and alleyways with evocative names like Jingling Lane.
In the centre, the small market town is filled with independent shops and cafes in which you can potter, browse and relax.
Each Thursday you can enjoy ambling round the Charter Market in the market square.
The location of the Sun Inn in Kirkby Lonsdale on the borders of the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Forest of Bowland makes it accessible to some of England’s finest scenery and beautiful locations.
