  • Booked to stay at Whoop Hall which was terrible but Kirby Lonsdale was very nice. Well worth a visit. Don't stay at Whoop Hall stay in the centre there are lots of nice small hotels.  more »

  • A very attractive bucolic view of the river Lune, fields, meadows and woods, little changed since Turner painted it in the 1820s. There's a nicely paved footpath and a few benches where you can rest and take in the view.
  • So peaceful and has been one of my favourite views in the world for a long time now.
  • Nice View. No need to come only for that, but within a walk through Kirkby Lonesdale this is a must see.
  • The river Lune and valley can be reached by walking through the churchyard to Ruskin's View. Sit a while and take in the beautiful surroundings. Access the river bank via a steep descent down steps and walk to Devil's Bridge, a twenty minute walk from Ruskin's famous inspiration. Walk into the village and try one of the many restaurants, coffee shops, cafes, or local pubs. Visit local shops or stalls on market days.
  • It you like looking at views, this isn't a bad one!
