Ideally located for exploration of the lakes and the Dales. The house has everything required to make the stay as comfortable as possible so you probably only need to bring food (or arrange for shopping to be delivered from the local national supermarket).
There are many helpful tips in the documentation in the house that cover the majority of the lakes.
The people in the local community were welcoming and friendly and the local pub served great food with fine ales on offer.
I booked this cottage for a trip with my sister and our 3 children (age 8 - 11). It was perfect. Everywhere was immaculate and clean. The welcome hamper was full of lovely goodies. The kitchen was very well big a spacious and had all the equipment you'd need. You could very easily fit two families in the cottage. The information pack was brilliant gave lots of relevant information about the local area. Thank you for a great stay we will be back.
We rented Kirkbride Hall as overspill accommodation for a large family gathering in Melmerby and found it a wonderfully relaxing place. The house sleeps 8 in 4 spacious rooms, most en suite (we were only 5 as rest of the party were in the big Hall
The amenities were first class with fully equipped kitchen stocked with more than sufficient crockery cutlery and glassware for a full eight person stay.
spacious garden with outside space for barbecues an dining, plus plenty of room for the dog to run around.
we found the owners and their staff most helpful and Melmerby to be a lovely village with nice team rooms and a lovely Pub.
Would definitely return to stay here
My husband and I plus our two goldens have just returned from Kirkbride Hall.
The property is truly first class.
Excellent location, beautiful inside & out.
Beds - super comfortable. Spotless.
All the small yet important elements covered - hose to wash down wellies and dogs, baby gates, great wifi, top class furniture, lots of outdoor seating, vouchers to use Greystoke outdoor pool.
Beautiful walks on their estate.

We will return!
Fully deserved of a 5 star rating. We hope to return at some point and would definitely recommended Kirkbride Hall to friends.
Everyone knows Penrith is amazing, and this is by far the best property I have experienced in the area!
Great location as you can walk to a lovely cafe, grocery shop and pub. Wonderful cycling area on quiet roads and pretty villages. House itself has everything to make for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The dogs were chilled too. Thank you for a comprehensive welcome hamper too. Thanks to the Rowley Estate team.
