Figtree House is an exquisitely interior designed luxury self-catering home set within 17 acres of rolling Cumbrian countryside near Kirkby Lonsdale, idyllically positioned on the borders of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.

Luxury self-catering home in Kirkby Lonsdale


This stylish 17th century luxury self-catering home near Kirkby Lonsdale is perfectly private, nestled among acres of stunning countryside where the only neighbours will be the charming wildlife characters who too call this beautiful fold of Cumbria home. Figtree House is tucked away down a winding country lane, yet is within walking distance to a wonderful gastro pub for those with a hankering for a gourmet supper and a good burgundy. The nearby fells offer walking opportunities a-plenty, whilst the romantics among you will covet the waterfalls and beautiful picnic spots nearby.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Choose from five beautifully-designed first floor bedrooms, each boasting the finest linens, Roberts iPod docks and views over the gardens and fields beyond. Each of the two king-size bedrooms have en suites with powerful rain showers for an invigorating start to the day. There is an additional double bedroom which also has views over the gardens, whilst two smartly-dressed twin rooms are situated either side of the house to the rear. The twin rooms can also be arranged as super-king doubles on prior request. There is a shared family bathroom with roll-top bath tub and hand-held shower.


The beautiful garden at Figtree House plays host to the delicate snowdrops which pop up first, soon followed by flowering bulbs in springtime such as hyacinths, bluebells, tulips, alliums and lilies. Old English roses and clematis scramble across stone walls and provide a sweet fragrance to tempt the bumblebees and butterflies. The view from every window is dominated by the towering and far-reaching landscape that typifies the surrounding Cumbria/Yorkshire borderland. Day trip to the old market town of Kirkby Lonsdale to browse its boutiques and cobbled streets with evocative names such as Salt Pie and Jingling Lane. Country pursuit enthusiasts will love to spend an afternoon out in the fresh air at Crabtree Clay Shoot, run by the owner's family.

For Relaxation

Families can look forward to hunkering down by the woodburner in the snug and cosy nights in with old fashioned board games. In summer months you may find it difficult to leave the chocolate-box cottage gardens; there's no better place to enjoy the afternoon sunshine with the birdsong and distant mooing of the cows. After a day exploring the dramatic terrain of the Lake District close by, luxuriate in comforts such as Egyptian cotton bath towels, locally-made bathing products and scented candles throughout each of the bathrooms.


There is private parking for up to four cars on the gravelled area to the front of the house. Figtree House is well-equipped with washing machine, tumble dryer, large range cooker and microwave.

Our Take

Property Owner Dorothy says

I originally bought this beautiful property so that my family would have a retreat in the country to feel at home and to come to be rejuvenated. I hope that you enjoy the home-from-home luxurious ambiance that I have tried to create as much as we do here at Figtree House

Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Farleton, Cumbria to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

The Local Delights Figtree House is idyllically positioned near the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, with Morecambe Bay to the South making it perfect for lovers of natural beauty, while Kirkby Lonsdale just a 10 minute drive away for those who wish to find beautiful treasures in boutique shopping!

A Twitcher's Delight Take a trip to Whinlatter Forest Park or the National Trust-owned Sticklebarn pub in Langdale; there will be robins, blue tits and sparrows that will welcome a tasty feast of crumbs should you be taking a picnic with you. 

Turrets and Towers Take a visit to the mock-Gothic Wray Castle which sits on the shores of Lake Windermere. The grounds are open to the public and are well worth visiting to see the specimen trees; wellingtonia, redwood, gingkoa, weeping lime, and varieties of beech.

Fishing The Lake District offers great fishing opportunities with breathtaking scenery. A site of Special Scientific Interest because of its international importance as a wetland, nearby Esthwaite Water has a large population of wild birds and in the summer the fisherfolk among you could be competing with the ospreys that visit the lake.  

On the Literary Trail No visit to the Lake District is complete without a visit to the the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction complete with Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Squirrel Nutkin and all the gang. Look out for Mr McGregor! Fans of the Swallows and Amazons stories will enjoy taking a boat cruise around the places surrounding Coniston Water which Arthur Ransome used to populate the imaginary lake of his books, including Wild Cat Island.

Go Ape  Grizedale tree top adventure is a popular day out for adrenalin junkies and adventure enthusiasts alike. Built on a side of a hill, it feels seriously high. And that's because it is. You'll fly 200 metres across the top of the Grizedale Beck and marvel at the forest canopy 18 metres up a magnificent Douglas Fir. Not for the faint-hearted!



The open plan well-equipped kitchen provides everything you need to show off your culinary prowess to family and friends. The country-style range cooker and cabinets are juxtaposed with bright flashes of flamingo pink to delight design aficionados. Enjoy informal breakfasts around the chunky wooden table, whilst the more formal dining room just off the conservatory will be the perfect spot for lively suppers.

In-House Cuisine

If you'd rather spend your luxury self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost). 

Eating Out

Whether you crave a high end fine dining experience, or more relaxed gastro pub grub, there are numerous places to eat around Lake Windermere and the surrounding areas. The nearby Plough Inn is a short drive into Lupton, with its wood burning stoves, chunky oak beams, antique furniture and rustic wine caves are the perfect accompaniment to the delicious and imaginative menus on offer!
