Description

Rowan Court is a terraced cottage set over three floors and is found in the pretty village of Kirkby Lonsdale, a popular market town in South Lakeland. Bordering Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria, the property offers easy access to both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks and the scenic Morecambe Bay coast.
Kirkby Lonsdale sits on the River Lune, and John Ruskin, the renowned art critic, poet and prominent social thinker of the Victorian age, referred to the town as having one of the loveliest views in England. The vista from St Mary’s Church, close to The Old Weigh House, was painted by JMW Turner and is now known as Ruskin’s View. The word ‘Kirkby’ is Scandinavian for ’Settlement with a church’. Kirkby Lonsdale offers a broad range of independent shops, charming tea rooms, high quality restaurants and pubs within 100 yards of the property. Wennington train station, 7 miles, is on the Leeds-Morecambe line and Oxenholme, 10 miles, offers intercity connections making travelling to and from the area very accessible. Beach 13 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

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.
