Description

The historic market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is well placed for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, The Lake District National Park and the Trough of Bowland giving guests the opportunity of visiting three counties in one trip. This traditional market town has an interesting array of shops selling arts and crafts, a handful of tea rooms and some great restaurants to suit every palate and budget, Plato’s a firm favourite with the locals and visitors alike. Kirkby Lonsdale also has many interesting, fine listed buildings, now either public houses or shops, one such listed building being Darcy House.
This beautiful double fronted Georgian property set within the town’s horse trading market has been awarded Grade II status and was built around 1640, predating its date stone showing 1797. The house has many original features including oak beams, some with original date markings on them, shutters to the windows and even some Victorian, hand painted wallpaper in the hallway. Darcy House offers superb, deluxe accommodation for you and your party with an eclectic mix of exquisitely chosen fixtures and fittings married beautifully with handpicked accessories and objects d’art. The emphasis here at Darcy House is very much on elegance, sophistication and the comfort and enjoyment of you and your party. The perfect venue for a small gathering of close family or friends or even for just the two of you, Darcy House is somewhere to soak up the romantic ambience of a bygone era and spend some valuable time together.

About the local area

Kirkby Lonsdale is in Cumbria's south east in between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales; an historic market town in an area of great natural beauty with riverside and country walks.

There are many riverside and country walks in the area, and historic buildings to see in the town itself, including the 11th century Norman parish church. While some market towns have become spoilt over the years, Kirkby Lonsdale and its surrounding area of outstanding landscape still retain the same beauty appreciated by Constable, Turner, and Ruskin.

Further north lays Kirkby Stephen at the head of the Eden Valley, a popular centre for walkers and situated on the Cumbria Cycle Way - a great route for all keen cyclists.

Half an hour's drive from Kirkby Stephen is the beautiful area of Silverdale - an Area of Outstanding Beauty, offering a truly inspiring escape from the pace and pressures of everyday life. Don't miss the headland of Jack Scout leading to Jenny Brown's Point. From here, look out across the bay to see Humphrey Head where, so legend has it, the last wolf in England was slain.
