Kirkby Lonsdale: a special place for romance
Dating back to the 14th century, Devil’s Bridge in Kirkby Lonsdale is a Scheduled Ancient Monument steeped in ancient myth and legend. Create a picture perfect scene as you take a romantic stroll over this grade I listed bridge hand-in-hand.
Or, gaze on “one of the loveliest views in England” at the renowned Ruskin’s View. Just moments away from the Sun Inn and the centre of Kirkby Lonsdale, it overlooks the silvery River Lune and miles of tranquil countryside as far as the eye can see.
For some romantic nostalgia, meander around the beautiful-restored historic buildings of Carnforth Station. 70 years after David Lean filmed his romantic classic ‘Brief Encounter’, create your own romantic scene underneath the famous station clock.
Enjoy your own waterfall of love alongside Thornton Force at Ingleton Waterfalls Trail. England’s longest show cave, White Scar, is another beautiful spot for couples to marvel at some stunning examples of nature’s handiwork in Ingleton – from the unique splendour of the ‘Arum Lily’ to delicate orange stalactites glittering in the roof of the cave.
Guests at the Sun Inn can also order a host of romantic treats to make an overnight stay in Kirkby Lonsdale extra special. Handmade chocolates, fresh flowers and chilled champagne are among the sumptuous goodies available for added romance and luxury.
