Welcome to Kirkby Lonsdale
Nestled between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, Kirkby Lonsdale is one of Cumbria’s many historic gems. A settlement since the Roman occupation, its narrow, cobbled streets are lined by many buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, which now house an eclectic mix of pubs, shops and restaurants. With intriguing historic landmarks like Devil’s Bridge and the church of St Mary the Virgin, Kirkby Lonsdale makes a charming, peaceful base for exploring the Dales and Lake District.
Be blown away by the Yorkshire Dales
The Yorkshire Dales have been known for their incredible natural beauty for hundreds of years. Its staggeringly deep dales are set amongst patchwork fields, bordered by ancient drystone walls. As you walk or cycle through the rolling slopes of this beauty spot, you’ll have a wonderful time exploring the picturesque towns and villages along the way, and getting closer to the hospitable culture of rural Yorkshire and Cumbria.
Discover Bolton Abbey
While the whole Dales area is steeped in history, Bolton Abbey is one site you certainly shouldn’t miss. Here, you can explore the haunting ruins of a carefully preserved medieval abbey, and learn about its long and turbulent past. Surrounding it, 30,000 acres of protected countryside can be explored via some 80 miles of footpaths.
