The Mustard Pot Cottage, 1 Salt Pie Ln, Kirkby Lonsdale, Carnforth LA6 2BH
Our guests love how close The Mustard Pot is to the hustle and bustle of Kirkby Lonsdale, whilst also benefiting from being on a quiet lane away from the noise of traffic. You couldn’t find a more ideal location to explore all that Kirkby Lonsdale has to offer, as well as the wider Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
Salt Pie Lane was formerly known as ‘Cattle Market Yard’. In 1911 it became ‘Salt Pie Lane’ after a lady living in the yard began selling hot salted mutton pies to the traders who visited Kirkby Lonsdale. After eating the pies, the traders felt the need to quench their thirst at the nearest pub, ‘The Snooty Fox’ on Main Street – which just so happened to be owned by the pie seller’s relative! A great business idea if ever we’ve heard one!
