A couple of months ago a flyer popped through our letter box advertising a newly renovated holiday cottage in Kirkby Lonsdale. We weren't planning a break but the cottage looked so nice that we thought we would give it a try. So we booked for the four nights just gone. It's not far to travel and the scenery in the area is pleasant. It was a good decision.

I noticed this odd formation of foam in the river caused by the falls. Caught in an eddy, these giant cappuccino toppings went around on a never ending merry go round that was quite hypnotic to watch.

The cottage, Chapel Cottage was perfect for two and would have easily accommodated another couple. It has just been restored to a very high standard. In fact the standard is much higher than you would expect from a holiday let.
It is located in one of the many small courtyards off the small town's streets and access by car was not for the faint hearted but, with Marion's guidance, we got by without any scrapes (unlike others as witnessed by a few paint marks in the passage).
I don't know if I should be telling you about it really as we may want to go back and I wouldn't be surprised if next year is not soon fully booked. But, hey, I don't have that many readers so if you want a perfect little cottage in a pretty little town, check it out here.
