  • "Enjoyed our stay and would use this property again when visiting Kendal"

  • "Lovely place."

    Great location. We would stay again.

  • "The property was tastefully decorated and sufficiently equipped."

    The beds were very comfortable. The sun lounge was a welcome bonus, especially as we benefited from a sunny week! Cricket lovers would enjoy having the Cricket Club opposite. Therefore, I would recommend this property without hesitation.

  • "Warm and spacious for 2 couples."

    Liked the outside space and the view of the cricket.Adequate parking and garage was a bonus.However rather let down by a few things which could be easily remedied. Superficially clean but cobwebs on light fittings and behind fire.Shower track behind doors needs a good clean as black and mouldy. Some cleaning materials e.g.surface cleaner and dishwasher tablets would be useful. Tap in bathroom handbasin very wonky. Rather a random mix of crockery and glasses. Would prefer full matching sets.

  • "Missing a few of the essentials like food cupboards in the kitchen and a shelf in the bathroom to put your stuff on."

    A soap dish in the shower room would also be useful. It’s typical of a holiday home that the owner has never actually experienced living in so a bit of a goldfish bowl with blinds that don’t work or are inaccessible and lightweight bedroom curtains that don’t block the morning light.

  • "Lovely house wit great view of castle."

    Would have preffered the second bedroom to have had 2 beds rather than a double for our 2 girls.

  • "We had a lovely relaxing stay at viewpoint."

    It is a nice warm cosy property. It was close enough to the town for us to walk in and a lovely pleasant walk to. A great base for a walking holiday. The only thing it didn't have or I didn't find was a hairdryer. Not a complaint, just an observation. It had everything else we could have asked for or wanted. Highly recommend

  • "The property was situated in a town I know well having lived there for 25 years."

    The owner was most helpful when I contacted him about key collection. The property was clean and well maintained. In addition to the parking space there is a garage which although a little tight to get into I did use (I have Ford Focus some bigger cars may struggle).

  • "Really enjoyed our stay in this house."

    Well placed for easy access to Kendal town centre and all shops, supermarkets etc. as well as just a short walk to the castle of which there was a great view from the house. We found that the WiFi worked well. The house was generally well stocked with equipment - the only minor things that we would have found useful was a few more pans, a cheese grater and a hair dryer - but nothing that we couldn't manage without. I would recommend staying here and wouldn't hesitate to go back.

  • "This is a good property which good be excellent with a few minor adjustments."

    We were left a very nice bottle of red wine but there are no wine glasses so we had to purchase a couple from asda.The numbers of cups and glasses were not sufficient for two people let alone four.The little garden was a pleasant suntrap but there was no seating, fortunately wehad our camping chairs.The views over the cricket field up to the castle were lovely and the weather was kind.all in all it was an enjoyable holiday

  • "The property was clean and comfortable and has a great view."

    The owner was very helpful with any queries which we had. The house is well placed in Kendal for the local shops in the high street and the Asda superstore. We recommend you try Frydays at 6 New Road, Kendal for excellent fish and chips.

  • "Great location, nice property, good equipment."

    Minor things, no WiFi, TV reception very poor and no vacuum cleaner. But excellent kitchen equipment. Plastic mattress protector a big no for me makes you very hot. Overall, very nice property, really enjoyed stay, nice welcome milk and few extras in fridge. Owner is very helpful. Amazing view of castle and cricket ground.

  • "Nice property in a great location."

    The owner is very helpful. Plastic mattress protector not great, make nights very hot. Everything else excellent, if really picky, a vacuum cleaner would be good. Clean, comfortable and warm.

The property

Perched in the historic town of Kendal in Cumbria is this delightful, two-bedroom, semi-detached house, Viewpoint.

Boasting a superb location within the Lake District National Park and enjoying picturesque country views, Viewpoint is a wonderful pet-friendly setting for couples or a family of four, plus their canine companion, for their next adventure to the Lakes.

Park-up in the off-road parking space available at the rear of the property, before making your way up the steps to your new home-from-home.

Be welcomed into the spacious open-plan living area, where you will find a well-equipped kitchen with all the appliances you will need to conjure up delicious feasts for your loved ones, including a handy dishwasher for those fuss-free clean-ups!

Settle down at the dining table for four to tuck-in to your meal, or if the weather is nice, why not dine alfresco out on the private patio where you can savour the last of the day’s sunshine?

As the evening cools, retreat to one of two sitting areas, the conservatory where you can enjoy views over the garden and a show on the TV, or the additional sitting room, where you can curl up on the sofa in front of a film on the Smart TV as the gas fire adds a warmth and glow to the space.

Completing the ground floor is a handy cloakroom, ideal for avoiding those morning queues!

As your eyes grow heavy, climb the stairs to the first floor where you can catch your rest in one of two tastefully decorated bedrooms, a super-king-size and a double with en-suite bathroom, both of which have plenty of storage.

Awake from a leisurely slumber and indulge in a soothing soak in the bath or refreshing rinse in the shower, before setting out for the day.

Explore the bustling town where you will find the historic Kendal Castle just a short walk away, with its ruined towers and vaults and scenic countryside views, it is the perfect place to explore for the budding historians in your party.

Learn more about the town’s rich history and heritage at the Kendal Museum and Quaker Tapestry Museum, or if that isn’t your thing, why not test out your clubs at the excellent 18-hole Kendal Golf Club?

Our local cricket cub can sometimes been seen across the way for those that may want to sit in on a game.

Those seeking something a little more adventurous can take advantage of the towns climbing centre and snow sports club.

Venture further into the National Park and spend the day at Windermere, where you can try your hand at a fantastic selection of watersports on the famous lake, including wakesurfing, kayaking and paddleboarding, soak up the breath-taking views from Orrest Head and Queen Adelaide’s Hill, or wander the exhibits of The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and the Windermere Jetty Museum.

From here you can easily access Ambleside, home to a fascinating 2nd-century roman fort and the picturesque Stock Ghyll Force, or Grasmere, where you can tour the National Trust site of Allan Bank, former home to the literary, William Wordsworth.

Escape to the Lakes like never before with a stay at Viewpoint.

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.
