A perfect stay in Corner Cottage, made even better by the gorgeous weather and the town of K.L that became a film set while the cast and crew from Universal Studios filmed a re-make of the film ‘Dr Doolittle’, by which we were fascinated. What a bonus to have chosen to stay at such a historic time for the town and its residents!
The cottage is a delight; such care has been taken to achieve a classy, clean and comfortable place to stay. We loved every minute, and every corner of Corner Cottage and would highly recommend it.
Thank you.
Chris & Pat Kelly (Southport)

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay once again in Corner Cottage. The weather has been kind to us and we have had great walks around the area. We recommend eating small plates at No 9 opposite The Sun. Owned by a young couple – she chef, he front of house. Great food & cosy.
We also recommend Plato’s for breakfast if you can’t be bothered to shop or cook!
Thanks for leaving the Christmas Decs for us. They looked gorgeous.

Thank you Jackie, we enjoyed a fabulous four night break in your beautifully presented home.

Would love to return in the future.

August 21st-25th,
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.

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!
