Dear Jackie
I’m sorry but I really do not want to leave! Your cottage has been a beautiful haven to spend the week and we really do not want to go home…
The cottage is everything, and more:-Cozy & comfortable, warm & welcoming. So carefully designed & decorated, it has made a true impact on the both of us.
Everyone in the town has been so friendly and there are too many options for shopping & eating out! We HAVE to come back!!!
Thank you so so much for a wonderful stay.

Thank you Jackie, we enjoyed a fabulous four night break in your beautifully presented home. My two year old grandson summed it up perfectly when he walked through the door and stated “Nice house!” We all loved the sociable layout of the property which enabled us to spend some quality family time together. Would love to return in the future.
Thanks again,
Christine, Alan, Rachel, George (Age 2), and Grace (Ten weeks old and her first holiday!). xx

Dear Jackie, We have had an enjoyable stay – our first, in Corner Cottage. Like Chapel Cottage it’s so beautifully decorated, designed and furnished. Your use of pattern, colour, textiles and quality furnishings is very clever and creative. We had an interesting guide of Kirkby Lonsdale by the local blue badge guide on Tuesday morning from the Information Centre that gave us a good insight on the local history of people, architecture, business etc.

It gave us a better perspective on the town and fresh look at things we hadn’t noticed. Great walks, good supermarket – Booths, lovely independent cafes & restaurants – Kirkby Lonsdale has a lot to offer. Thank you Jackie for creating such a warm, welcoming and pretty cottage to stay in. Gill & David Gilbert (Hertford).

11th-14th Aug 17th, Another great weekend  in Kirkby and our first in Corner Cottage.  The place is stunning.  Well done!  Will be back either here or next door at Chapel Cottage where we have stayed before.

Had a very relaxing enjoyable weekend.  Many Thanks. Paul & Marie

28th -30th July

We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage.  Lovely food in Platos dungeon.  Amazing to be able to park so close to the cottage, with parking at such a premium in the town.  All the neighbours so lovely & welcoming, will definitely be coming again.  Thanks Jackie & Steve, Debby Mackay & Dave Mackay.

Thankyou for a wonderful stay in Corner Cottage!  Kirkby is a lovely getaway, very much enjoyed exploring and drinking our way around it.  The Ingleton Falls trail was beautiful.  Hope you enjoyed the past few days as much as we did.  The cottage is beautiful!

Lots of love Hollie & Christine. xx

Cannot express how much we love your new little addition!  Yet again you have done and amazing job!  Everything is just perfect – felt so at home and completely chilled out here.  We have had a fabulous time and you will never get rid of us now! 

Enjoy your new cottage Jackie & Steve – it’s truly beautiful!  Thanks again, Netty, Neil, Linda & Terry -Southport.

Dear Jackie

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your Gorgeous cottage.  I’ve now found my spiritual home in my spiritual home of Kirkby Lonsdale!  We’ve had a complete chill out, which we desperately needed – the cottage is so cosy as well as being so pretty.  We’ll definitely be back, and I may well book Chapel Cottage for a weekend with my friends.  You may well be given a list of “where is …….from” as there are so many lovely touches that I’d like to replicate at home – you have beautiful taste!  

We’ll no doubt cross paths….

Thanks again!
