Walking around Kirkby Lonsdale and Ingleton
Just a couple of minutes walk from the inn’s luxury accommodation in Kirkby Lonsdale is Ruskin’s View, a famous scene immortalised in the painting by J.M.W Turner. Visitors can also stroll along the River Lune and relish the scenic views from the historic Devil’s Bridge, dating back almost 650 years.
Kirkby Lonsdale’s unique location on the border of the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North Lancashire means the Sun Inn’s hotel guests have plenty of choices for longer walking adventures too. The majestic but little-known Howgill Fells and waterfall trails at Ingleton are both within striking distance, while the Lune Valley and Forest of Bowland are great for nearby picnic spots. For more adventurous walkers, the Yorkshire Dales boost the three classic major peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent.
Wet weather needn’t be a barrier to walking around Kirkby Lonsdale and the surrounding countryside. The Sun Inn has even complied a handy collection of ‘Wellie Walks’ and wet-weather gear for guests to borrow, including a selection of sturdy wellington boots, macs and umbrellas. For dog-lovers, the Sun Inn’s dog-friendly facilities include deluxe dog-friendly bedrooms and a dog showering area to refresh muddy paws.
