Out and About

Beech Lynette is ideally situated just 5 minute drive from Junction 36 of the M6 motorway. It is also in a superb location for exploring the local area, cycling, walking or just relaxing in beautiful countryside. 

Beech Lynette is on the border of North Yorkshire, Lancashire and the southern point of the Lake District, just a 5 minute drive from the quaint town of Kirkby Lonsdale with its famous “Devil’s Bridge” and a 20 minutes’ drive from Kendal.

To the East, is the North Yorkshire market town of Skipton with its cobbled side streets and medieval castle (34 miles away) and Ingleton Waterfalls Trail and Caves (9 miles away)

To the West, and a 20 minute drive away, is the southern tip of Lake Windermere at Newby Bridge, and half an hour’s drive takes you to the bustling lakeside town of Bowness.

To the North, just 30 minute drive away is Penrith and 60 minutes away is the City of Carlisle – the Border City – sitting on the doorstep of the Lakes, Hadrian’s Wall and Scotland.

The Indalo

All around the outside of Beech Lynette and the owners’ property, Beech Lyn, you will see different symbols depicting the “Indalo”.

Vivien and Antonio met in Mojacar, Almería province, Spain, over 30 years ago where the “Indalo” symbol is considered a type of lucky charm. If you go into any gift or souvenir shop in the city of Almería and you will find key rings, thimbles, teaspoons and even jewellery – all bearing the Indalo symbol.

This all dates back to 1868 when cave paintings were discovered in a cave in the north of the province of Almería. These cave paintings were about 6,000 years old and one of them, a man with his arms held out to his sides and holding a rainbow above his head, has come to be the symbol of Almería.

The Indalo allegedly brings good luck, health and love to those who own one.

Things to Do

5 minute drive (right onto the A65) into village of Kirkby Lonsdale.  Gentle stroll through the main street, through the Church grounds and along the river Lune to Ruskin’s View.  Another popular destination is Ingleton Waterfalls Trail – less than 20 mins away.
