Welcome to The Royal Hotel, Kirkby Lonsdale

A lovingly restored Georgian town-house hotel providing luxury accommodation and exceptional hospitality amidst the unspoilt English countryside of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland.

Not only are we ideally placed for you to explore the fabulous countryside on our doorstep we are the perfect place to explore the equally fabulous food and drink that these great counties have to offer.

The fields, fells and valleys are home to hundreds of specialist food producers, organic farms, micro-breweries and even the odd spring water bottler.

Thank’s for visiting the site and a bigger thanks for visting one of our places!
