  • "Horncop Nook was a first class place to stay."

    Only a 5 minute walk to the bustling centre of Kendal the property is fitted out to a high standard. We could not fault the property in any way as it satisfied all our needs, was spotlessly clean and had superb facilities. We have no hesitation whatsoever in giving a ‘5 star’ recommendation.

    The kitchen equipment was the best we have ever experienced in a self-catering home. The location is within easy walking distance to Kendal and the nearby Kendal Green. Highly recommended!

  • "What a very clever modernisation of an outbuilding."

    The place was brilliantly decorated, with excellent facilities, an impressive kitchen and shower, and one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in. Most impressed. The little touches of locally produced soaps, coffee, eggs etc were most welcome Kendal is well placed to stay, as most of the popular towns are very busy, but only a short drive (or excellent bus) away. The town itself is an interesting place to visit in its own right. Would definitely return again.

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.
