Burton In Lonsdale (Back-Up Site)

About

One of our Lake District back up sites, your flight may be moved here on the day.

Stone walls, rolling hills, fresh country air to reawaken the senses. Burton In Lonsdale sits in picturesque North Yorkshire.

Steeped in history, this sleepy corner of the Yorkshire Dales even offers a castle with large motte, still 30 foot high, with two clearly visible baileys to the west and south.

Holiday cottages can be found here in abundance so why not make a weekend of your trip?

There’s so much to see, you’re best seeing it from the air. And with nothing but views right off a picture postcard, can you resist the delights Burton In Lonsdale has to offer?
