Adventure in the Kirkby Lonsdale area
The Sun Inn in Kirkby Lonsdale is perfectly placed for visitors taking on some adrenaline-charged challenges on the North Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire border. After an action packed day, the Sun Inn offers the chance to rest and rejuvenate with sumptuous dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation.
Kirkby Lonsdale is a great base for adventurers to enjoy a huge underground world. In recent years, potholers have connected The Three Counties Cave System, 60 miles of caverns and complex natural tunnels just north east of Kirkby Lonsdale. On higher ground, the Sun Inn’s overnight guests can take on the challenge of Ingleborough, the best known of the famous Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks looming high above nearby Ingleton.
For one of the most extensive climbing and vertical adventure centres in the country, the Lakeland Climbing Centre offers Kendal Wall, Kendal CrazyClimb and a spectacular indoor Via Ferrata.
Meanwhile, the Outdoor Adventure Company at Holmescales is set in 300 acres of countryside between Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale. An almost endless list of activities includes everything from quad biking, tank driving and off road driving to archery, paintballing and air rifle shooting. Visitors can even try out sheep herding or dry stone walling.
Just down the road, Holmescales Riding Centre is ideal for both novices and experienced riders alike. Homescales’ horse riding includes trekking and hacking tuition.
