Where to eat and sleep in Kirkby Lonsdale

Since the days of Ruskin and Turner, we’ve welcomed visitors to the Lune Valley where you can relax or unwind at your own pace, or indulge in outdoor activities which will recharge your batteries.

Kirkby Lonsdale may be a small town, but it has a big choice of what and where to eat, and where to lay your head at the end of the day.

From highly rated hotels to cosy bed and breakfast establishments, from local Cumbrian and Yorkshire fare to tempting dishes from abroad – you’ll be hard put to decide what’s best.

The good news is that you can ring the changes with just a few short steps. Kirkby Lonsdale’s town centre is compact. Cafes and restaurants, pubs and hotels, are all with yards of each other, so you can mix and match to your heart’s delight – or is that your stomach’s delight?

At bedtime you’re sure of a comfortable bed and warm hospitality from those who provide such a wide range of accommodation. There’s nothing ’corporate’ in Kirkby Lonsdale.

We take a personal pride in making your stay memorable for the right reason because we want you to go away with just one note in your diary – ’we must go back to Kirkby Lonsdale.’

Please note: Since the lifting of COVID_19 restrictions many of the cafe’s, bars and restaurants in Kirkby Lonsdale are now open. We advise that you ring and book in advance as some will be operating a bookings only policy. To help, we have pulled together this blog post on What’s open in Kirkby Lonsdale and what you can expect.  

Alternatively get more details from the Visitor Information and Gift Shop on Main Street, or call us on 015242 97177.
