  • "Well positioned lovely clean cottage close to centre of Kendal."

    Well presented. Everything that was needed was supplied and more. Only negative was having to park car out of sight. However parking permit was provided which was very useful as it allowed you to park on certain car parks in the surrounding area.

    We had a lovely time and the weather was kind, which was a bonus. As always, the cottage was spotlessly clean and we had everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday. We really appreciated all the extras and the parking pass. Thank you very much! We’ll be back.

  • "We stayed in this lovely little cottage, in the middle of Kendal town for 3 days in August."

    The cottage has a small living area and a full-equipped kitchen (with little details like biscuits, coffee, tea, a lot of Peter Rabbit books and artefacts) which makes this a lovely cosy cottage for a family of four. There are two bedrooms spread over two floors (a tall house) with two bathrooms and toilets. The beds were freshly washed, clean and was a welcome to tuck into after 8 hours of journey. The place to just a minute's walk from the high street and good to drop into Pizza Express in the evening or the lovely café opposite for a lazy brunch. It is just 15-20 mins drive to Windermere or Ullswater and is a good base for all the activities around Lake District. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this cottage for small families.

  • "Really cute cottage, right in the centre of Kendal, so great for all the local amenities, but not at all noisy."

    We were always able to get a parking space in the recommended car park to be used with the parking permit. We would definitely book again.

  • "Property was wonderfully presented and located right in the heart of the town."

    Parking was literally 30 seconds away and free with the pass provided, although you could park briefly right outside to unload / load your car. Everything you would need in the property was provided along with instructions for appliances. You could walk to everything within Kendal although we chose to drive to Windermere on one day! Beautiful place to visit and would definitely recommend and we will be returning hopefully to stay again.

  • "The cottage was beautifully clean and warm with an abundance of hot water."

    It was well equipped but I would suggest that shower/bath mats would be useful. Ideally situated for the town and Booths supermarket. Parking a little way from the property but with the parking permit it was easy and we always got a space.

    Had everything you could need during your stay to hand. Immaculately clean and lovely decor. The parking permit is an excellent addition too. Great base for shops, cafes, walking locally and trips into the Lakes. Highly recommend.

  • "A delightful property in the very centre of Kendal with Booths top supermarket, and other shops, less than a minute walk away."

    The house is spotlessly clean and well equipped, comfortable beds and very quiet at night. The heating and hot water was instant and the free parking ticket was invaluable. The central Lakes are a short drive away and I definitely recommend this holiday home. The owners were also very kind and good at communicating.

  • "A home away from home."

    A pretty, traditional cottage in an ideal location for exploring Kendal. Very grateful for the thoughtful gestures such as a fresh carton of milk, teabags and a taste of mint cake! The addition of the parking permit was so greatly received too - a very unique and generous feature. The only thing we struggled with was using the oven. We spent about half an hour trying to warm our croissants. Whilst there was a sticker on the oven, we still struggled with 3D heat etc (?) Perhaps you could add a more clear sticker that specifically says Grill, oven and a quick explanation of which dials to turn? Great communication from the host from the moment of booking until the end of our stay.
