places to visit
This 18thC coaching inn, situated in the picturesque village of Burrow was fully renovated in 2007 and has become an award-winning destination food pub. A wonderfully relaxing environment, craggy stone floors and warm solid wood furniture.
The picturesque market town of Kirkby Lonsdale on the banks of the River Lune is ideally located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and within easy reach of the Lake District.
The centre is a mix of elegant eighteenth-century buildings and stone cottages huddled around cobbled courtyards and narrow alleyways with evocative names such as Salt Pie Lane and Jingling Lane. Traditional butchers, bakers and ‘the best independent cheese shop in the UK’ (2007) jostle alongside designer jewellery, fashion and home décor outlets.
The broad valley of the Lune contains Casterton, ‘the settlement by a Roman fort', dominated by a prestigious public school. To the north is Barbon, a cluster of houses next to a tumbling beck and the venue for car and motorcycle hill climbs. Further up the Lune Valley is Middleton, a scattered community with an ancient hall in its midst. To the west is rolling farmland around Lupton, Mansergh and Old Town leading up to the prominent limestone outcrops of Hutton Roof.
