Kendal, Cumbria & The Lake District
A delightful, architect-designed terraced cottage, just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of the charming town of Kendal. Tucked away in one of the narrow alleyways by one of Kendal's 'yards' this Lake District cottage has been imaginatively renovated with an 'upside down' layout, with a stylish open-plan living area on the first floor, and the bedroom and wet room on the ground floor. An ideal romantic retreat, complete with its own Juliet balcony, the cottage is also a great base for exploring the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, and is within walking distance of the town centre shops, restaurants and pubs. The Brewery Arts Centre, and Abbot Hall and Museum are just 300 yards away, whilst pleasant walks along the River Kent, which flows through the town to the castle offering panoramic views of the town and Lakeland hills, are not to be missed. With magnificent lakes and beautiful countryside to explore, this great property has plenty to offer, at any time of year.

About the location
Windermere 8 miles.
An historic Lakeland 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.
