The safety of our guests and team is our first concern, we have a comprehensive risk assessment and implemented a variety of measures to satisfy the Government Guidelines and ensure the Sun Inn is COVID-19 Secure.  A copy of our Risk Assessment may be found here Sun Inn – Risk Assessment.

The 17th Century Sun Inn, located by St Mary’s Church in the historic market town of Kirby Lonsdale is great base to explore South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales, and the Forest of Bowland. Kirkby Lonsdale is an ancient settlement that was included in the Domesday Book of 1086 there is a rich history waiting for you to discover.

If that sounds to strenuous and you just want to relax then you can enjoy the array of boutique shops, our very own Brewery, Ice Cream Parlour, Baker, Butcher, and a traditional sweet shop Kirkby Lonsdale has it all.
