Sun Inn Team


The safety of our guests and team is our first concern, we have written a comprehensive risk assessment and implemented a variety of measures to satisfy the Government Guidelines, meet the 2 metre or 1 metre+ rule and ensure the Sun Inn is COVID-19 Secure.  A copy of our Risk Assessment may be found here Sun Inn – Risk Assessment.

We have also met the standard for Visit England ‘We’re Good To Go’  and Sawdays ‘Clean and Safe Charter’ . You can expect things to be different, but you will receive the very best welcome and service we can offer – albeit at a distance for now!

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. A short walk from the Sun Inn you will find  the famous ‘Ruskin’s view’ a gentle stroll along the River Lune takes you to ‘Devils Bridge’ and with just a little more exertion you can continue walking  along the river to the village of Whittington. Take a turn in the opposite direction and walk up to Higher Casterton or Barbon you will be rewarded by some fantastic views. 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.

Each of our 11 boutique bedrooms have been tastefully designed and are packed with an array of lovely features and amenities. Our spacious Deluxe Rooms are ideal for a special treat or an extended stay, enjoy the comfort of our Superior accommodation or choose a cosy village room all are great for a short break, holiday or just a night away. Whatever your preference we have the ideal room for you above all you can expect to find exceptional comfort and attention to detail and once you are tucked away in your accommodation you can relax and plan for some lovely days out, delicious meals and much more.

Our Bar and Restaurant has been re-organised and we will serve a brand new all day menu from 12.noon until 8.00pm daily, at night there is the addition of a new Fixe Prix menu created by chef Joe Robinson so if it is delicious food, local ale and a great choice of wine that you have been craving then we have it all.
