  • "Forrest's Yard 1 is a large spacious apartment."

    Spotlessly clean and well appointed. The kitchen was particularly well stocked with crockery, cutlery, pots & pans etc for everything we needed. It is fantastically located in Kendal with pubs, shops and restaurants all within a few minutes walk. Also fabulously located for exploring the Lake District. Great short break.

Forrest's Yard 1 is a true marvel of a property, situated in the perfect position for a relaxing break in a traditional Cumbrian market town, on the doorstep of The Lake District National Park.

Named after the twice elected mayor George Forrest, who once lived here when he was elected in 1825.

Providing guests with a traditional interior, giving the dwelling a characterful charm, this first floor apartment can be found tucked away in an idyllic spot in Kendal.

Perfect for a family of eight looking to explore the Lake District and beyond.

Head into the kitchen/diner to begin your exploration of the property, where traditional meets contemporary style with the kitchen area boasting a variety of modern appliances amongst elegant units and a stylish wood-top breakfast bar, and the dining area hosting an impressive table boasting a regal aura, fitting in with the rest of the properties charm.

Move through into the sitting room and light up the woodburning stove as you unwind in one of the impressive leather sofas in the room, or if you're seeking a quiet spot to yourself, the snug is the perfect place to delve into a book or get involved in one of the board games for an evening of family fun.

When your day draws to a close, choose from four elegant bedrooms to catch up on your rest, with two super-king-size rooms ideal for the couples of the group, or one being a twin upon request, a twin with both a spacious 4' double and a single with its own en-suite cloakroom and a further standard twin with a cloakroom, providing flexible sleeping arrangements for a variety of group needs so the whole family can come along on your fun-filled trip.

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.
