The Old Stables is a conversion of a stable block within the scattered hamlet of Mansergh, three miles from Kirby Lonsdale, inbetween the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Park. This upside down cottage has three ground floor bedrooms, consisting of a twin room with en-suite shower room, another twin room with utility room off, and one double, as well as a ground floor family bathroom, which means this cottage sleeps six people. The first floor at this cottage contains a oak fitted kitchen and an open plan living room with separate dining area, woodburner and small balcony. Outside, this cottage has off road parking for two cars and a garden, seating area, garden furniture and BBQ. The Old Stables is a wonderful family cottage in a lovely area.
Mid way between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District and in the heart of the Lune Valley, the attractive market town of Kirkby Lonsdale makes an excellent spot for a family vacation. Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, this lovely town holds a 13th Century market charter, a tradition that still continues every Thursday. Market day is an ideal opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive shops in the town or the many 17th and 18th Century buildings that can be seen throughout the settlement. As a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, the Lune Valley is home to the medieval ‘Devil's Bridge', which can still be seen spanning the river. Throughout the area there are many quiet country lanes which are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even on horseback, and the surrounding countryside provides great facilities for tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks.
From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
