  • "A fantastic stay."

    Perfect location and an immaculate property. Parking was straight forward and liked the fact you could use the ticket throughout the South Lakes council carparks.

    A little gem of an apartment...a home from home. We so enjoyed our 5 days in Kendal, walking, eating and drinking and looked forward at the end of the busy day getting back to our cosy holiday home and the bed was fabulous....we will be back

    Thank you so much for your amazing feedback. So glad you enjoyed your stay and the apartment. Property Owner

    The apartment is so bright and airy with wonderful soft furnishings to complement the surroundings. Everything is fantastic quality from the bedding linen to the full range of crockery. Some super places to eat on your doorstep too, we had an amazing brunch at Farmhouse Kitchen, a heart warming Sunday roast at Romneys. All

    Can't thank you enough for your feedback and hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Stayed in Helton Fell for a cycling trip in The Lakes and we we weren’t disappointed."

    We were a group of 8 so took over two apartments but loved that there was plenty of space for us all to relax in our apartment as well as eat and enjoy our time together after a hard day on the hills! Fortunately the owner helped us find a great local electric bike rental company for two of the group. The parking was perfect, just a short walk, and the apartment seemed brand new, beautifully decorated and furnished as though the owner was decorating their own home with great attention to detail. We certainly felt at home in no time. The kitchen and living areas were bright and sunny with a wonderful view of the hills in the distance and the very comfortable bedrooms had great views for people watching on the streets outside. Being in the centre we were spoilt for bars and restaurants. Will definitely be making another trip to stay.

  • "Unrelated to this property, Sykes had already cancelled our original booking due to a leak, no apology cancelling so late on, we were left with trying to find an alternative."

    We found that Helton Fell was available for the same period. The property itself is very centrally located, in the middle of the high street so easy access to everything in Kendal. It's well equipped, well finished, little extras like a Bose Link where you could play music was great. Very clean & tidy, plenty of seating which is comfortable, no shortage of kitchenware, plates, cuttlery, glasses etc. overall it was a great property. Our main issue, which to date we are still waiting for Sykes to acknowledge our complaint & confirm how they intend to deal with, the listing says king size bed in the main bedroom with zip link in the other bedroom that can be made up to a kingsize bed, neither are correct. We called the owner to see if we were doing something wrong, she confirmed that they are 2 twins, neither are or could be kingsize beds. It wasn't a big issue but on reviewing the listing the pictures had been taken to suggest the main bedroom was a kingsize bed, this is a deliberate mis-sell / false marketing of the property which I called out to Sykes, I asked for this to be logged as a complaint, to date we haven;t heard from Sykes, haven't had a complaint reference so assume they simply don't care & are happy to do nothing about it! The owner was lovely, exchanged a bunch of phone calls & she was always at the end of the phone & offered info when we asked. I would recommend this property as it really is a lovely, clean & comfy apartment but you will be staying in single beds.

  • "Helton Fell is a great location in the centre of Kendal."

    Right opposite one of the best pubs in Kendal and a Tesco Express! The drop off point is right outside the entrance to the apartment; handy on arrival and departure. There are 2 sets of stairs up to the apartment, but we were prepared for that. The nearest car park is at the back of the property - 2 mins walk away. We were able to use our parking ticket for 7 days at many of the Southern Lakes car parks in and around Windermere, Grasmere and Ambleside which was a bonus having paid £35 for each car. The beds, linen and high spec of the property is notable, especially bathrooms and kitchen, which is well laid out and good for those like us who enjoy cooking. TV and WIFI access v good. The windows in the lounge area add a lot of natural light which is fabulous as well as good views, considering location within a town centre environment. Jayne was v helpful with our questions and the communication before and during our stay was extremely accurate and responsive. Thank you!

    Thanks for the feedback Joanna and we look forward to welcoming you back soon Property Owner

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.
