  • "Nice enough flat, cosy, central situation."

    We had a nice stay. I found it a bit noisy, traffic noise, but I live in the country where a bird tweeting makes you jump. 2 sets of stairs to property, may be a strain for some, but they are not awkward. We had a couple of problems with door lock and light switch, but told the owner and I expect he will rectify. Parking is a bit tight, but I found it ok, VW Golf. Its definately worth having. The question is, would i stay again? Answer yes. :-)

  • "Perfect location for us - close to shops and bus station."

    The flat was clean and had all the facilities we needed. My only suggestion for improvement would be to make it feel a bit more homely. Everywhere else I have stayed have provided tea and coffee and sometimes a pint of milk, so that visitors can make a cuppa when they arrive. Some local information would also be useful.

  • "Excellent location, two minutes from bus station in one direction, and the shops in the other."

    Very comfortable accommodation, good beds, vast living and seating area, airy bathroom. WiFi signal was excellent. Some new placemats would be an improvement, and an upgrade to the cooking and kitchen equipment generally, but we enjoyed our stay and felt it was well worth the cost.

  • "We LOVED this property !"

    We spent a week here and it was exactly what we needed. we are a family of 4 and we had plenty of room and space for all of us. The main areas like the kitchen, dining and living room had loads of space to sit and relax. Having roku on the tv was great for winding down in the evening. The location is also perfect for tourists to the area, as its a 5 minute walk into the middle of Kendal. There was plenty of space to keep our clothes. You can really tell that the owner tried to provide as many of the important things as possible to make it convenient. Also the bathroom was wonderful, warm and the bath tub is humongous! My only gripe with the property is that the 2 larger beds were really hard to sleep on. The mattresses were very solid, and we kept waking up with sore ribs/back. The single bed was perfectly normal. I hate to even mention it, and it doesn't overshadow our experience staying here. If it weren't for the mattresses, this is the perfect property for anyone to stay in! and we will definitely consider this for future visits.

  • "This apartment was in the middle of the town."

    It was spacious and clean. The beds were a bit on the hard side and the pillows were flat. The only real problem was the very high cobbled car parking space. I have a small car and had difficulty getting off the space without it wrecking my front bumper. This needs sorting out. The place itself was lovely and homely.

  • "Arrived on 17th December for 3 weeks."

    Everything was ready and a very nice surprise to have a full Christmas tree twinkling in the dining room and two bottles of Champagne in the fridge. Everything you could ever need is in the apartment and with having two young children the washer and tumble dryer were invaluable. The car parking space was also a big hit. Two double / King size beds were really comfortable and the single room was great when we had a visitor stay a few days with us. The owner made sure we were settled and checked if we needed anything. All the kitchen items were clean and fully stocked. the heating was more than adequate in all rooms. The close proximity to the town centre is a great draw for this property. This property will be the first choice for my next visit later this year. Thanks again to Mr Robson.

  • "Great place if you want to stay centrally."

    Kitchen equipment is a little scant (e.g. pans are all small and looking v worse for wear, no scales). And we only got towels for one of the 3 bedrooms (situation rectified after 24hrs). But they are the only things that would improve it. Would have booked again for next year but someone else got there first!

  • "Apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped and owners when spoken to very friendly."

    They contacted us to make sure all was well which was appreciated. The location in centre of Kendal was quiet and perfect for going out to the shops and for a meal. Parking in allocated bay was a little tricky due to cobbles and maybe should be a warning about this a low cars could bottom out. However we managed and there is free parking on other side of the road (a busy road) if you really could not manage it, although this would not be too convenient when unloading and unloading luggage. Would still definitely recommend as a place to stay.

The property

A charming second floor cottage, a short walk from the centre of the bustling Cumbrian market town of Kendal.

Located in Yard 23, this quaint cottage apartment provides spacious accommodation with a large dining/kitchen area with beams, together with a sitting room with original stone features.

This Kendal apartment has three bedrooms and a lovely bathroom which is perfect for relaxing in at the end of the day.

Kendal is a thriving market town with many fine restaurants and cafes located down "Yards" - small narrow alleyways which branch off from the main streets.

A traditional market is held twice a week in the square and a farmers' market is held on the last Friday of each month, a perfect opportunity to sample some of the delights produced in the area.

The Brewery Arts Centre regularly hosts specialist exhibitions including the Mountain Film Festival in November and Mintfest, Kendal's International Festival of Street Art, which runs at the end of August each year.

With the Lake District on your doorstep, this Kendal cottage offers a superb base to explore the spectacular mountains and lakes returning to enjoy the fabulous amenities in this "auld grey town".

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.
