  • “We arrived to find the flat had not been cleaned.”

    Sykes did a good job of contacting the cleaning supplier and getting it sorted but as we had arrived Saturday am and change over day was Friday this is unacceptable and we ended up wasting the first day of our holiday. The cleaners are separate to Sykes so it’s not their fault but as other reviewers have mentioned the same problem there’s obviously an issue. ...

    Sykes did a good job of contacting the cleaning supplier and getting it sorted but as we had arrived Saturday am and change over day was Friday this is unacceptable and we ended up wasting the first day of our holiday. The cleaners are separate to Sykes so it’s not their fault but as other reviewers have mentioned the same problem there’s obviously an issue. The flat has nice new furniture but is generally a bit grubby, needing a good deep clean, and the kitchen could do with some updating. The kitchen facilities are also limited - only 4 forks(!) There’s also damp patches with mould and a funny smell. Stuff we brought home smells damp! We knew the flat was next to a road but didn’t realise how busy a main road/how noisy it would be and it’s next to a pedestrian crossing with constant beeping! Would not recommend for a family with young kids.

The property

Once one of Kendal's oldest pubs, now converted into a development of lovely flats, Flat 2 Galloway House is a ground-floor apartment set over two levels at the centre of the bustling market town in Cumbria.

Lying within the South Lakeland District, you are not far from the glorious Lake District National Park to the west and the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the east, this property would be perfect for avid walkers and those who love the outdoors, but want to be central to lots of amenities.

It is considered ground-floor but the property is accessed via a set of steps up, then into the property find the open-plan dining and sitting room, a large corner sofa sits inviting you to recline and put your feet up in front of the wall-mounted TV, or rest at the contemporary dining area with stylish bar stools with a glass of wine.

Travel down around five steps from here into the kitchen, where you can make use of the excellent appliances for preparing tasty meals.

Further along is the sparkling white bathroom, complete with a shower over bath, while you must continue back through the property to get to the welcoming bedrooms.

Both double rooms, they are equipped with gorgeous oak furniture of excellent quality so you have plenty of room to store your belongings.

The whole property is furnished to a wonderful degree with pleasant decor.

Of course a major plus is that the shops, pubs and restaurants are just a few minutes away, and you are central to the town of Kendal.

The town has lots to offer; when it comes to learning of the local history, there are several museums scattered around the centre including Kendal Museum containing natural history collections, the Quaker Tapestry Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry, perfect for a rainy day out!

When the sun is shining make sure to get out into the open, explore the amazing Lake Windermere, the UKs longest lake and hire a boat to see the wonderful mountains and fells from the water.

Flat 2 Galloway House can offer you a brilliant base from which to explore this amazing area of the UK.

About the location

KENDAL

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.
