The 17th century Sun Inn stands prominently in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale, its upper storey held in place by three stone pillars. Inside it is a welcoming fusion of old and new; the traditional bar with real fires, low beams, oak floor boards and leather seating extends into the light contemporary restaurant that has lovely views across to St Mary’s Church.

The rooms are stylish and modern, all with many thoughtful touches such as fresh milk, mineral water, big fluffy bathrobes, lovely toiletries and perfumes, pillow top mattresses and free wi-fi. Four of the eleven bedrooms accommodate dogs who can also chill out with you downstairs in the bar.

In Kirkby Lonsdale you can enjoy riverside walks, take a stroll through the winding cobbled streets bursting with cottages, browse the chic independent shops, or relax in one of the many cafés or bars.

Back at the Sun you can enjoy complimentary tea and coffee, chill out with a book, enjoy ‘British tapas’ style nibbles, real ales, great wines, sumptuous dinner and one of the best breakfasts ever.
