Description

The Mustard Pot is perfect for couples looking for a romantic escape, relaxing in front of the roaring wood burner and enjoying a glass of wine whilst the world goes by. Equally, it is great for families wanting to enjoy quality, stylish and comfortable accommodation with the town a stone’s throw away. The terraced cottage has kept many of its original features including stone walls and beautiful beams, has been decorated to a very good standard and houses paintings by local artists.
The property is centrally located off Kirkby Lonsdale’s main street, through a small ginnel onto Salt Pie Lane, formerly known as ‘Cattle Market Yard’. The lane had a change of name in 1911 after an enterprising lady living in the yard made hot salted mutton pies to sell to the passing trade. After filling up from the delicious pies, it was necessary to take a short stroll to the nearest pub to quench their thirst!

Kirkby Lonsdale sits on the River Lune, a hot spot for motorcyclists, walkers and cyclists gathering at the renowned Devil’s Bridge. Kirkby Lonsdale is bordering Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria, and there is easy access to both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, and Morecambe Bay coast. Kirkby Lonsdale itself has a lot to offer and boasts an abundance of traditional pubs, fine dining restaurants, charming tea rooms and boutique shops, all on the doorstep of the cottage. Beach 12 miles. Shop ¼ mile, pub and restaurant 175 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.
