  • "Great central Kendal location - very central."

    Though winding to get to, parking was no issue with great instructions sent. Quiet. Good facilities & very comfortable. Good bedrooms. 1st floor. Only suggested improvement was quality of TV. Was adequate but did go in and out at times. Being able to access internet (you tube, catch up) on TV was good. Wifi was Ok.

  • "The property was exactly as described, immaculate and left us not wanting for anything."

    There was even milk in the fridge when we arrived allowing us to make a cup of tea after our long journey. It is also very well placed to access many of the popular areas of the lake district. Well recommended and will use it again in the future.

  • "Property couldn't be in a better position to explore Kendal and the lower reaches of the lake district."

    And with parking a real bonus. Think 2nd bedroom bit on the small size if 2 couples were there. This didn't apply to us so everything more or less perfect.

  • "The travel directions sent by Sykes were not accurate."

    They said turn of Stramongate to the property. There was no vechile access, but only pedestrian access via an alleyway. Access for parking was off New Road. These details were sent by e-mail to me by the owners before the holiday.

  • "Our stay in Kendal was fantastic."

    The apartment was incredibly clean, which you could smell as soon as you walked in, and was such a comfortable place to stay for our week in the Lakes. The kitchen was well equipped for self catering and it felt very homely. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was great. The parking spot (in a courtyard opposite) was easy to get in and out of and felt very safe. We loved it so much we're working out when we can go back! I would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Cumbria.

  • "This is a lovely accommodation right in the centre of Kendal."

    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.

An uplifting characterful apartment situated in the centre of Kendal, accessed from a set of steps which lead up to a balcony, resting just outside the front door.

Pretty and contemporary, this retreat is perfect for families or a group of friends looking to get away from their busy lifestyle for a while.

Wander inside to the hallway which sweeps over to a double bedroom, laced with neat bedding and a peaceful aura.

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.

Close by, the bathroom is beautifully presented with a shower cubicle, a wall mounted hand basin and lovely white features.

The mix of light and dark colour tones compliment the formation well, making a lovely place to get ready or unwind after a long day.

Follow the layout to arrive at an open plan kitchen with glossy white units for a modern feel, along with a breakfast table for those relaxing mornings.

The living area is home to comfortable seating and an open fire.

A floor to ceiling window brings a light and airy feel to the room, and a small dining table is perfect for those evening meals.

Outside of the apartment, a balcony runs the length of the complex, and a shared yard lies below.

The market place is a short stroll away and the village of Kendal offers an attractive main street.

This is a stylish retreat for a getaway to remember.

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.
