Allhallows is a quirky, renovated church that welcomes four visitors to the Lake District, resting in the centre of the market town of Kendal in Cumbria. Allhallows, which spans four floors of accommodations and enjoys a prime location among a variety of facilities and attractions, is just a short drive from Lake Windermere and all its charms.
Make use of the permit parking space before entering the front garden, leading through to the open-plan living area; here, you can unwind while the chef of your group uses the cutting-edge appliances available.
Dine indoors or head outdoors for an alfresco affair, with the stunning gardens as your backdrop. You can spend your evenings socialising and planning your forthcoming days in the sitting room, which has plush sofas, a Smart TV, and eccentric artwork, located on the first floor, encompassed by original stained-glass windows.
As the night unfolds, find three inviting bedrooms, starting with the first floor's single room. The double bedroom is located on the second floor, next to the family bathroom, whilst the final single bedroom is located on the third floor; be careful as it is accessed via a narrow, steep pedal stairway.
Before heading into Kendal to stock up on necessities and eat out, wake up to a refresh in the ground-floor shower room, which also has a washer/dryer, perfect for cleaning your holiday clothes. Popular restaurants in Kendal to sample include Farmhouse Kitchen Café, Comida [food], and The Garden Café & Take Away, whilst the Kendal Museum, the Kendal Golf Club, and the breath-taking Miller Bridge, which spans the River Kent, are all located within the town.
Arrive in Windermere, where you'll find a variety of things to do, including the opportunity to hike up Queen Adelaide's Hill, explore The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, wander through Holehird Gardens, or visit Brockhole on Windermere, The Lake District Visitor Center, where you can try your hand at kayaking, archery, or rent a boat across the Lake. Finish your journey by travelling to Ambleside in the north, where you will find Stock Ghyll Force, Borrans Park, and Rydal Cave, all of which have landscapes rich in nature, or if you enjoy literature, you should also pay a visit to the Wordsworth Grasmere Museum.
Make wonderful memories at Allhallows.
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.
