Stay in a boutique inn in Kirkby Lonsdale
Kirkby Lonsdale is an historic market town, on the border of three counties: North Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire. Nestled between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, Ingleton Falls and the Trough of Bowland are also within easy access of Kirkby Lonsdale.
The boutique Sun Inn in the centre of Kirkby Lonsdale combines the character and charm of a 17th century inn and AA rosette restaurant with the luxury of contemporary, modern hotel accommodation. Stay in one of the Sun Inn’s eleven luxurious hotel bedrooms on a bed and breakfast basis, or enjoy further foodie treats with dinner during your stay in Kirkby Lonsdale.
The Sun Inn’s restaurant, ‘Carter at the Sun Inn’, is featured as a ‘local gem’ in the 2015 Good Food Guide and offers a selection of light snacks, lunches and dinners, as well as ‘Posh Noshers’ wine tastings and gourmet foodie breaks. Locally sourced food and award winning sausages from our own Kirkby Lonsdale butcher make a fantastic breakfast, equally matched by Head Chef Sam Carter’s award winning evening menu. Meanwhile, real ales and roaring log fires will welcome you in the Sun Inn’s traditional bar area.
Just behind the Sun Inn in Kirkby Lonsdale is St Marys Churchyard, with the original sun dial which inspired the inn’s name. Guests can also meander down to the River Lune to enjoy Ruskin’s View, immortalised by the painter JMW Turner, during an overnight stay at this Cumbrian beauty spot.
So whether you are just looking for a place to eat, or want a luxury short break close to Ingleton, North Yorkshire and the Lake District, then the Sun Inn at Kirkby Lonsdale can accommodate your needs with boutique hotel rooms, award-winning breakfasts and evening meals, and a warm, personal service. We even have luxury dog-friendly bedrooms too.
