Kendal out and about

Kendal is the hub of South Lakeland shopping and culture, building on its historic past as one of the one of the most important woollen textile centres in England. Its many yards were once filled with workshops processing cloth, leather and foodstuffs and it is still bustling now. There’s a Farmers’ Market on the last Friday of each month and an extensive choice of tearooms, pavement cafés, traditional pubs and modern restaurants.

The ruins of 13th Century Kendal Castle, which was once home to the Parr family, whose most famous member, Katherine Parr, was the sixth wife of Henry VIII, overlooks the town. And, if it is history that you’d like to explore from our Kendal holiday cottages, the major historic attractions Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are just south of Kendal.

Culture is very much on the cards in Kendal too. Kendal Museum is one of the oldest in the country and Abbott Hall, one of the finest small art galleries in Britain. Plus, there’s the internationally- renowned Quaker tapestry.

The Brewery Arts Centre offers a offers a full programme of cinema, theatre, music, exhibitions and special festivals all year round. Plus, let’s not forget Kendal’s annual events, which include the Westmorland County Show,  Kendal Torchlight Carnival and the Kendal Mountain Festival.

Young visitors might even want to venture to Longsleddale, where author John Cunliffe, who himself lived in Kendal, based the fictional post office for his well-loved Postman Pat books.

The market town is packed with speciality shops – some tucked away down little alleys and yards – and there’s restaurants and tearooms galore.

If you’re looking for somewhere with little travel involved, Kendal is perfect since you’ll be right at the heart of both daytime and evening entertainment. But, since it is the gateway to the southern Lake District, it makes a great base for exploring too.

Kendal self catering is popular because you are free to come and go as you like whether you’ve planned a day trip to Coniston, a cruise across Windermere, or planning to follow the trail of Beatrix Potter.

Then, at the end of a fun-filled day – or even as a mid-afternoon rest to recharge the batteries for an evening out in the town – a stay in one of our Kendal Cottages is the perfect place to retreat to. A stay with us won’t just be good, it’ll be great!
