Dog friendly escape at the Sun Inn, Kirkby Lonsdale
In honour of National Pet Month, April 2013, we are unveiling some special additions to make its four-legged guests feel just as special as their owners.
We already offer access to plenty of stunning open countryside to keep both dogs – and their owners – occupied for hours.
From 1 April 2013, dogs will also receive a complimentary ‘pooch pack’ on their arrival including a towel, a dog bowl and a special tasty treat. Their owners will be given details of an introductory walk along the stunning River Lune and can borrow sturdy wellington boots, macs and umbrellas free of charge to protect against the elements.
Later, man’s best friend can curl up in front of a real log fire in our traditional bar area, while guests of the human variety sample some local ales and tuck into Cumbrian fayre from the Sun Inn’s AA rosette-rated kitchen.
Kirkby Lonsdale itself is a pet lovers haven, with dogs allowed in many of the friendly cafes and small, independent shops in this historic market town. What’s more, the Animal Emporium, just round the corner from the Sun Inn, is an Aladdin’s Cave of foodstuffs, bedding, toys and ‘animal accessories’.
Rooms at the Sun Inn start from £99 per night, including full English breakfast and complimentary tea and coffee throughout the stay in the bar and restaurant, based on two adults sharing a double room. There is a £10 supplement for dogs.
And it’s not just man’s best friend who is welcome at the Sun Inn – the 17th century hideaway has already played host to its first feline visitor this year as well!
