    “Great house and garden with fine views in a greatlocation.”

    Slept 12 but we were 7 and very comfortable. Only significant criticism is some of the kitchen pans and tins were well past their bin by date. Would be very happy to return and will recommend to others

    Thank you for your feedback and bringing the need to change some pans to our attention. We just replaced three frying pans this week for new but we will ask our housekeeper to sort out any remaining old pans in need of changing. We are more than happy to get these changed and thank you for letting us know. We hope to welcome you back some time soon. Property Owner

About the location


Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
