  • "Excellent, well equipped, well located and spacious flat with a parking space and good WiFi."

    Owners were super responsive to our queries. Would definitely look to stay here again next time we're in the Lakes District!

    Our second visit. Love coming to this property as it is so central in Kendal. Flat is clean, tidy and very comfortable.

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    Great location and the flat was comfortable and had everything we needed for a family of 4. The children loved the added extras of Easter eggs (we were there over Easter) and jigsaw puzzles to play. Thanks for a great week.

  • "This was a lovely comfortable property close to the town centre."

    It was well fitted out with everything you would need. It was nice to find some items of grocery like a pint of milk waiting for us. Although it was avery nice property being a first floor apartment with access via a flight of stone steps it would not be suitable for disability access.

    Accommodation just right with everything provided that you need. Planning on going again.

  • "This was everything we wanted for a long weekend."

    It’s in a great town centre location, handy for shops and restaurants. The apartment is very well equipped - with proper bedroom storage! It’s tastefully furnished and very clean and warm. It was great to have starter supplies of important basics - washing and cleaning materials, tea, coffee and milk etc - and even some welcoming spring flowers. We struggled to work the lounge fire at first as the handset wasn’t working but help was at hand almost immediately. We’d definitely recommend this for anyone without mobility issues.

    Very comfortable. Would be good to have an extra key as we were there as two couples and had to coordinate to make sure we could all come and go and keep the door locked.

  • "Excellent location, right in the centre of Kendal."

    Parking is great if a little tight. The property itself was comfortable but starting to look like it needs a bit of cosmetic work in parts. A bit of road noise as it's close to the main road through the centre but it's generally not too bad. Everything you could need is included in the property and it's generally clean. I would recommend this place as convenient for central Kendal and a good base for the Lakes.

    It was just right for us (a couple and teenage son). The kitchen was well equipped for self catering, the apartment was clean and modern throughout, there was wifi and a smart TV. The town was super close and having a designated parking space was perfect! We didn’t meet the hosts in person but check in and out was easy and they communicated well via email.

    The apartment is clean, stylish and exceptionally comfortable, with modern facilities - particularly the very nice kitchen and bathroom. The master bedroom is spacious and features a with a walk-in wardrobe, the bed itself was extremely comfortable and I enjoyed good night's sleep throughout my stay. The second bedroom (unused) also looks cosy and peaceful. Car parking is in an adjacent courtyard and is safe and secure, with a bay dedicated to the property. The yards that house Camden Building give access via alleyways directly into the main town centre and the local shops, pubs and eateries - so an absolutely ideal spot. The owners sent me an email prior to my visit giving me its exact location and parking details, and also left a bottle of wine with a welcome note attached - which was a nice and unexpected surprise. I will most certainly be booking this property again in future and can highly recommend it.

A wardrobe and mirror bring an added touch, so you can feel right at home amongst the extras.

A second double bedroom is equally soothing and you are guaranteed to sleep easy through the night.

This room also comes complete with a walk-in wardrobe to store your essentials.

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.
