The Old Weigh House benefits from a patio garden, private parking and the facilities of Kirkby Lonsdale are just a 50 yard stroll from the property.

The Old Weigh House lies in the heart of picturesque Kirkby Lonsdale, a popular market town in South Lakeland. Bordering Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria, the property offers easy access to both the Lake District and Dales National Park and the scenic Morecambe Bay Coast. Sited in the former 13th-century Swine Market where pig sellers traded their animals, this contemporary Scandinavian style property is furnished to a high standard throughout.
Kirkby Lonsdale sits on the River Lune and John Ruskin, the renowned art critic, poet and prominent social thinker of the Victorian age, referred to the town as one of the loveliest views in England. The vista from St Mary’s Church close to The Old Weigh House was painted by JMW Turner and is now known as Ruskin’s View. The word ‘Kirkby’ is Scandinavian for ’Settlement with a church’. Kirkby Lonsdale offers a broad range of independent shops, charming tea rooms, high quality restaurants and pubs within 50 yards of the property.
This part Grade II listed property is perfect for the discerning guest. Couples looking for a romantic escape and families wanting to enjoy quality accommodation will find The Old Weigh House an ideal location. A spacious and comfortable living room offers the chance to ‘people watch’ over the cobbled former market place. Alternatively, close the shutters, open the wine and curl up on the stylish leather sofa to enjoy a well-earned rest after a day exploring the local area. Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    First time at The Old Weigh House, but not first time to Kirkby Lonsdale. Four adults stayed - two pensioners and two middle aged. The house is beautifully, but comfortably, furnished. Having a ground floor bathroom and bedroom was great for the older couple. Kitchen was spacious with quality cooker and microwave. The dining table is a touch on the small side and a slightly larger table would be more suitable. There is room, and as this has been mentioned in other reviews, maybe the owners will change it. The bedroooms were lovely, we all slept well. I would have preferred a softer pillow, but this is personal choice. Yes, an upstairs toilet would make this cottage perfect, but there isn’t the room. We have already booked again. There is parking for two cars which is brilliant in Kirkby Lonsdale. The gifts on arrival are very thoughtful. Overall a fantastic place.

    A first rate cottage in an excellent location, central to all that Kirkby Lonsdalehas to offer. Everything was pristine and for someone who likes to cook it was a real bonus to have a top notch cooker and high quality stemware. The availability of dedicated parking, which is rare in Kirkby, was an added bonus. Very nice of the owners to leave a box of locally made chocolates and biscuits, plus a bottle of award winning fizz. Much appreciated.

    Lovely cottage in centre of village. Standard of accommodation was really great and the furnishings and fittings were first class. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed except for a hand towel. There was a welcome pack ready for our arrival with a nice bottle of Prosecco and some biscuits. The bedrooms were lovely and had fabulous wardrobe space. Lots of pillows were provided but all were very plump and firm. Some softer less bulky ones would have been welcome; I resorted to using one of the lounge cushions as a pillow as I need a softer, thinner one. Beds were very comfortable. Lovely bathroom with a large shower and nice large towels. The cottage was spacious and warm. It takes 2 minutes to walk to the shops and there are a number of good restaurants in the village plus coffee shops and brewery/wine bar. A great cottage in a great location!

    This was our 2nd stay at The Old Weigh House. It’s a beautiful cottage, in a lovely spot right in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale. Well equipped, warm , comfortable and inviting. Several good pubs, bars and restaurants right on the doorstep. A good selection of independent shops and tea rooms. We will return for a 3rd stay.

    Wonderful place to stay - location in centre of Kirkby Lonsdale is just superb, as you're walking distance from shops and restaurants (unlike, say, if you stay 'out in the country'). Only minor gripe is dining table is too small for 4, and DishWasher likewise ! Otherwise very comfortable for sleeping and sitting. Highly recommended in every sense.
