Christmas Shopping break at the Sun Inn, Kirkby Lonsdale
Gift shopping needn’t be a chore for visitors to the chocolate box town of Kirkby Lonsdale in the run-up to Christmas, as we offer a thoroughly stress-free stay to gear up for the festive season. It’s an ideal base to make all the yuletide preparations – with boutique clothes shops, unique collectables, a feast of foodie treats, and traditional Cumbrian and Lancastrian arts and crafts.
Every guest staying on their Christmas Shopping break, during the period 1-23 December 2012, will receive mulled wine on arrival plus a delicious homemade afternoon tea, topped off with a complementary three course seasonal dinner in the Sun Inn’s AA rosette rated restaurant.
They’ll also be given exclusive 10% discounts at specially selected local retailers, as well as a personal selection of festive wrapping paper, scissors and sticky tape in their rooms – keeping gift wrapping quick and hassle-free. They can even write their Christmas cards in front of a roaring log fire, while sipping some soothing hot chocolate, before popping next door to the post office to get cards and packages sent off to loved ones.
There are plenty of opportunities to hunt down some seriously unique Christmas presents in Kirkby Lonsdale, from stunning jewellery and ceramics, to indulgent Cumbrian-made fragrances and bathing products, and foodie treats including bespoke cheese boards and luxury chocolate gifts. There is even an Enchanted Chocolate Mine to tantalise the tastebuds.
With brands including Jackpot, Phase 2, Tommy Hilfiger and Hobbs, there’s also a surprising array of stylish ladies clothes and accessories on offer – whether shoppers are looking for a stylish gift or that perfect party outfit.
With the festive gift hunting all under control, visitors can then meander through Kirkby Lonsdale’s unique mix of cobbled courtyards, elegant 18th century buildings and cottages built from Lakeland stone. Along the way, they’ll explore hidden snickets and charming streets such as the aptly named Jingling Lane.
