Cottage Holidays in Burrow, Cumbria, England

Burrow Has Surprises Up Its Sleeve.

Facts about what Burrow offers for Cottage Breaks


Burrow is a very small hamlet in Cumbria in the Lune Valley. Walkers, backpackers and families receive a warm welcome in this very pretty part of the world.  Anglers come to fish on the River Lune for salmon, sea trout and brown trout. Rent a holiday cottage in Burrow to be in the centre of this lovely location.

Spanning the River Lune, the Devil’s Bridge is a well-known local landmark, dating from about 1370. Under the bridge is a popular place for scuba divers, as the water gives good visibility and there are deep rock pools.

This hamlet is only two miles from the attractive market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, known for its buildings from the 1700s, cobbled courtyards, old stone cottages and alleys. Independent shops thrive here and Market Day is Thursday. St. Mary’s Church, designed in the Norman style, is renowned for its view from the churchyard. Known as Ruskin’s View, it is so called because the philanthropist and art critic, John Ruskin was very much taken with it and wrote of its beauty. J.M.W. Turner was also duly impressed and created a watercolour painting of it in approximately 1818. St. Mary’s presents regular recitals and musical performances.

The Enchanted Chocolate Mine is a wonderful family attraction in the town. Children love the stories of faeries mining the chocolate beneath their feet! Other stories relate to Peter Pan, because author, J.M.Barrie was a regular visitor to Kirkby Lonsdale.

For a day of thrills and spills, you can’t beat a good motor sports hill climb. One of the best in the country, Barbon Manor Hillclimb takes place three times a year in the parkland of Barbon Manor Estate, outside Barbon village, near Kirkby Lonsdale. It’s the shortest hill climb event (0.5 miles) on the hill climbing calendar and one of the hardest ones for the participants. Drivers need to push their speed and negotiate three corners and a very tight hairpin bend.

If art in the outdoors is more your thing, the Sheepfolds Project near Kirkby Lonsdale is an intriguing sculptural installation by well-known sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy. Celebrated for his work with natural materials in the natural environment, Goldsworthy has five of the project installations in total in the Kirkby Lonsdale area.
