Post Box Apartment is so named because it sits above the owner's Post Office in the village of Hornby close to Kirby Lonsdale near to the Lake District. Located on the first floor and with three bedrooms (one double, one twin and one single) and a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep five people. The rest of the property consists of a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with an electric fire. To the outside of the cottage is a small garden with a patio, outdoor furniture and a barbecue as well as bike storage. As Post Box Apartment is set between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks, you will be sure to find plenty of places to explore, no matter what time of year you visit.
The village of Hornby, in the Lune Valley, is bordered by the Lake District to the north, and the Yorkshire Dales to the east. Set on an old pack-horse route, Hornby is situated close to where the River Wenning joins the River Lune. Hornby Castle is set on a high hill overlooking the river and is known as the subject of one of Turner's best-loved paintings. Consisting of a scattering of traditional houses, a church, two pubs and a Post Office with tearoom, there are several quiet walks around the village and other walks and places of interest close by. Nearby Kirkby Lonsdale is a popular town, with the Old Devil's Bridge a delightful spot to stop for a coffee beside the River Lune, while a number of antique shops and curios can be found in the town, along with an excellent selection of restaurants and pubs.
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
