  • "The cottage was spotlessly clean and comfortable."

    There was everything we needed for our stay. Nice and peaceful location but still close to the amenities. Good communications with Lara ( the owner). Fantastic stay.

    Thanks very much Paul. It always gives us great pleasure when our guests appreciate the comfort and convenience of Tarn Howse Property Owner

  • "Everything we expected and more in this lovely ‘home from home’."

    A welcome pack waiting for us on entering which was very thoughtful, even fresh milk in the fridge. Gin and tonic and a beer - lovely surprise which we really enjoyed ! Central area from which we were able to walk around Kendal and catch the bus from the station to venture further afield rather than driving. Would definitely recommend

  • "Immaculately clean, warm and tidy and well presented property with all modern amenities you could ever need for a weeks stay."

    The owners have thought of everything to make ones stay very comfortable and homely; it really has a ‘Home from home’ feel. If you’re used to living in a quiet area and getting a good nights sleep then this is the place to stay! With a parking space provided there is no need to worry about where to park your car! There was even an outside tap with a hose to clean off our muddy walking boots! The owners left a welcome pack too, which was a very nice touch. The property itself is only 5 min walk into the town centre which is great for a bit of shopping and a coffee or an evening out in Kendal. Will definitely be booking next year. Thank you.

    Thanks so much Paula for your wonderful review. It is such a pleasure to us when our guests feel relaxed and at home and appreciate the little touches of luxury we like to offer. We are very happy that you have booked again in October and look forward to welcoming you again; with an extra treat for your second booking Property Owner

  • "Such wonderful accommodation."

    Very clean and beautifully decorated with all the facilities that you could ask for and more. The property was ideally situated with a short walk in the town and easy access to all the places of interest. I would certainly book this property again whenever I return to the Lake District.

    Thankyou Dale for your lovely review! It gives us great pleasure when our guests feel so at home and also appreciate the convenient location of the house for walking into Kendal or travelling further into the Lake District. We hope to welcome you again in the future ☺️ Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Strickland Court."

    The communication with the owners before the stay was excellent before, during and after. When we arrived the home was beautifully cleaned and had everything you’d need for your stay. There was even a little welcome hamper which was lovely. The home was cosy and felt like a home from home. We had our baby with us and they had provided a high chair and put a stair gate up for us which was a great touch. Would stay again if we visited the area in the future.

    Family of four with two children 1 & 5 who both enjoyed the house, plenty of room and very well equipped, immaculately clean. Would recommend to family and friends.

  • "The most perfect house in the best location."

    Modern with everything we needed. A very short walk into Kendal town. The host couldn’t have been more accommodating. The house is clean, well equip and had everything a family of 4 needed. A fab smart TV, very comfy sofa, a super modern bathroom with a very spatial shower. Lovely enclosed back garden and parking for one car. We will be booking again. We enjoyed exploring all the local areas.

  • "This property is a real gem."

    It's a lovely house, small yet spacious, with everything that we needed and more. It's close to amenities and in a lovely quiet road. It's a very comfortable and practical house to be in and is a very easy location to venture out and explore the Lake District from, either on foot or by car. The space is well designed and tastefully decorated, the garden is a quiet retreat. The welcome basket was a very thoughtful and delicious touch and the house had condiments and washing-up liquid etc and felt far more like staying in a generous friend's beautiful holiday home than staying in a rental. The owners have really thought of everything that you might need, from multiple small chopping boards for a family to cook together to blankets to snuggle under on the sofa. Even somewhere to put your wet and muddy gear! We could walk out to dinner or stay in and enjoy the house. The super fun large TV allowed us to watch the Olympics whilst in the kitchen cooking supper, and we found ourselves picking films that would make good use of the large screen - Jaws! We truly couldn't recommend holidaying in this house more!

  • "3 Strickland Court delivered everything we (Husband & wife) needed for a weeks break in the Lake District."

    The house is immaculate and everything has been thought of. My initial concerns about noise from neighbours were totally unfounded, this must be one of the quietest streets in the country. Kendal is a great base for exploring the area, it has everything you need but is nowhere near as busy as Windermere, Grasmere etc Recommend a walk up the River Kent to Staveley about 6 miles, the stretch between Burneside and Staveley is stunning and we hardly saw a sole, lunch at the fantastic Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley and then the train back.

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.
