  • "Incorrectly advertised, claimed has parking however it didn’t."

    Which resulted in a big cost to myself. Tv remove didn’t work, as no batteries so had to replace. Also thermostat didn’t work for the heating.

  • "The cottage is very cosy and has a lovely calm aura about it."

    Located 5 mins from Kendal centre and all the shops / pubs / restaurants etc (which are varied and good). Beds very comfortable & central heating very good. The stairs are steep, but perfectly OK for people without mobility issues. The owner and the management team are wonderful and have promptly resolved any issues arising. It worked for me to the extent I added another week.

  • "The main issue was no hand rails on the steep stairs which I slipped on, this could be easily solved."

    The cottage was generally good order but had a mark on the kitchen ceiling probably from a bathroom leak. The kitchen could do with more cooking equipment.

    Thank you for taking time to leave feedback. We have now added handrails to both sets of stairs so this will make it easier for guests. We will also look at adding more equipment in the kitchen. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Kendall Cottage and would recommend it as a fantastic location and lovely cottage."

    We were unlucky in that the cottage was covered in scaffolding when we arrived that we weren’t made aware of so that did spoil things a bit. This also made the use of the communal back garden difficult The garden had no where to sit and was really only used by the cottage next door who hung out a lot of washings also stopping use of the space for our cottage. Despite this we thoroughly loved the cottage but from the description we had expected to be able to sit out and use the outdoor space. The lounge area was lovely and cosy to relax in and the bedrooms were bright and airy with lovely bed linen Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location with lovely parks close by to walk our dog.

  • "A great location for Kendal and other beautiful surrounding areas, but with some teething problems."

    ..Loose part of bannister on staircase. Very dusty under beds and a dead spider and woodlouse in sink on arrival. Not child friendly especially with sharp corners and spiky doorframes. Parking was also at times a nightmare. A guest comments book and a few items on arrival would have made us more at home. These have been offered at other cottages we have stayed at.

    Hi, thank you for your feedback. We will definitely pass this feedback onto our cleaning and maintenance team and aim to improve this. Unfortunately parking can be challenging in the area, especially at peak times. We will look into the suggestion about a comments book and items on arrival. Property Owner

  • "I am surprised that Sykes listed this property!"

    The cottage is in a great location for a holiday in Kendal a d for the Lake District. The standard of facilities and maintenance was low however. The shower was unusable as the temperature control was faulty. The two flights of stairs were very steep and no bannisters! The parking permit was 3 months expired so I spent a lot of my holiday time and money finding car parks as most of Kendal is permit parking zone. I contacted the property “agent” who told me to keep receipts and claim back parking fees

The property

Resting centrally within Kendal, a market town and bustling area within Cumbria is Kendal Cottage, a characterful three-storey dwelling.

Situated upon the cusp of the Lake District National Park and a short journey away from a host of attractions enveloping the breath-taking Lake Windermere, the cottage offers an ideal base for a self-catered break, welcoming a family of four and their furry companion. Upon stepping into Kendal Cottage, you will notice it's charming exterior; stepping indoors, be welcomed by the country-style kitchen/diner, housing a woodburning stove, dining table, exposed stone walls, and a whole host of state-of-the-art appliances. Head outdoors to the rear of the cottage for some fresh air upon the shared lawn, before venturing upstairs to locate the light-flooded first-floor sitting room, where you can unwind in front of the Smart TV.

As sleep calls, rest your head in one of two well-presented bedrooms found on the second floor, including a double and a twin, before awakening to either a bath or a shower in the bathroom.

Once you're ready to explore, head into Kendal for a delightful stroll alongside River Kent, enjoy a competitive afternoon at Kendal Golf Club or brush up on your local knowledge at the nearby museum.

Reaching Windermere, be at one with nature whilst hiking up Fell Foot, tour the Lakes Aquarium, a firm family favourite, take up the opportunity to explore the lake through kayaking or sailing, or expand your artistic interest at Blackwell gallery.

Travelling north towards Ambleside, head to the Lake District Ski Club for a thrill-seeking activity, climb the summit of Fairfield Peak, explore Rydal Cave and its underground routes, or enjoy the stunning surroundings of Stock Ghyll Force.

Plan your next break with Kendal Cottage as your abode.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

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.
