The ground floor boasts a spacious living/ dining room with wood burning stove (a basket of logs is provided for your stay) it is the perfect place to relax and unwind enjoying far reaching views towards Barbon Fell. Exposed beams and stonework create a charming space that has been fully modernised for contemporary living.

The attractive Oak staircase leads to the first floor and the first of the two bedrooms; a spacious double bedroom (with fantastic kingsize bed) enjoying magnificent views across the village towards the Barbon Inn and Barbon Fell beyond. On this level there is a fabulous modern house bathroom with good sized P shaped bath with shower over, wash basin, heated towel rail and WC.

About Sarah E

My family and I bought this property because we love Barbon, Kirkby Lonsdale and the surrounding areas and one day hope to live there! But in the meantime we wanted other people to enjoy it too. We are Cumbrian born and bred so feel free to ask any questions you might have about the area and we will try to help! Thanks - Sarah x

Why Sarah E chose Lancaster district

Filled with charming original features yet fully modernised, Hilltop is in such a superb location. Barbon village is a real gem! The Barbon Inn and the Churchmouse Cafe & Deli are both fantastic establishments and there is so much to do without even getting in the car.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautifully presented (even if we do say so ourself) yet unstuffy, perfect for couples or families alike. Walkers, ramblers, cyclists, foodies and everyone in between will enjoy this cottage and the local area.

Fabulous from start to finish

  • 5 of 5

beautiful cottage in a beatutiful villlage, 10 minutes away from historic Kirkby Londsdale. Perfect position being central to the Dales and the Lakes. the cottage was spotless, had absolutely everything that you coule possibly need. Fast internet - needed to keep in touch with work. The owner was very responsive and helpful. I could not recommend it highly enough. I will most definitely stay there again.

Real English cottage in real English village.

  • 5 of 5

We, two couples, spent six days here and enjoyed every minute of it. Hilltop was fairly easy to locate in a beautiful English village that comes complete with pub, shop and church. The cottage was first rate, impeccably clean throughout. The bedroom areas were generous, with comfortable beds. The woodfire in the spacious living room was perfect for cool evenings. The well-equipped kitchen was just the right size to stop too many cooks from spoiling the broth. The photos of the cottage understate its character. The village pub, the Barbon Inn, just a stroll away, breathed English conviviality, with open fires, friendly staff and quality fare on offer. The Churchmouse at Barbon, the village store-cum-tearooms, was equally impressive and just as close. There's more than enough to see in the region. Kirkby Stephen nearby is well worth a visit. It has a large supermarket, bakery, butcher and several places to eat and drink. Without hesitation, we recommend Hilltop to anyone (especially two couples), perfect as a place to stay to experience the real England.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Have just spent the past week at this wonderful cottage. The area it is situated in is lovely, half way between the Lake district and the Dales. The village is small, but has a good shop and public house. The cottage is well equipped.
