  • "A very comfortable flat - everything works and very well located with good parking."

    A pleasure to spend time at River Walk!

  • "Great location with parking although quite tight to manoeuvre if it’s full with a big car."

    Flat nicely appointed with everything you need, a nice big TV and comfy sofa. Mattresses not great for us but that’s a personal choice, overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend if you want to stay in town.

    Thank you so much for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes, Gaby Property Owner

  • "The property was really comfortable,once we parked the car we didn't have to use it as the town was in walking distance."

    A good base for visiting the towns in the lake district,because of the good bus service, Maybe the owner could get another shower mat as getting out of the shower was a bit slippy,apart from that it was a great shower and stay.

    Thank you for your great feedback. We have put another shower mat into the bathroom. We hope you stay with us again, best wishes Gaby Property Owner

  • "My family stayed here when they came for Christmas and new year 2023."

    They loved the apartment. It was tastefully furnished, warm and cosy, with everything you would need away from home, and lots of choices for eating out, and entertainment, within an easy stroll. I requested a baby cot and highchair, and these were in the apartment on arrival. Gaby even put up a christmas tree for us. Correspondence with the owners was easy and very pleasant. I would highly recommend this holiday apartment, and I would definitely look to book here again in the future. Thanks Gaby. You are a super-host.

    Thank you so much Frances for your great feedback. Best wishes, Gaby Property Owner

  • "This was a really comfortable apartment in an excellent location in Kendal."

    The kitchen had everything we needed. The only thing I missed was a hairdryer… but it didn’t mention a hairdryer in the details so this isn’t a criticism. We had a wonderful week.

    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at River Walk. We will ensure a hairdryer is provided - thank you for letting us know. Best wishes, Gaby Property Owner

  • "This is my second stay in the property."

    As I lived for 25 years in Kendal so Riverwalk is a nice convenient spot in the town centre to revisit. The property is ideal for my purpose

    This is great to read. Thank you very much for booking with us again. Gaby Property Owner

  • "Accommodation was very comfortable and tastefully decorated."

    Was near to shops and ideal location for visiting the Lake District. For our personal circumstances it did not work as well as we would have liked. Flat was fairly small and there was limited space to dry laundry. There was no airer apart from a small pull out unit in the bathroom. Bathroom floor was very slippery when wet, and there were no hand towels. Hanging space was limited with no wardrobes just a couple of rails and drawers. If you expect to do washing and have wet, muddy clothes, rucksacks etc., as nice as the flat is, this may not be the right holiday let for you. Allocated parking space caused a few problems as we had a larger car.

    Thank you for your feedback. We believe all of the photos on the website help give an overview of the size of the flat and I’m sorry it didn’t fulfill your needs.Gaby Property Owner

  • "This was a beautiful apartment and was very new with everything in it new."

    The only slight drawback was there were no wardrobes in either bedroom only coat hangers on hooks. This did not prove a problem and I managed the situation. Everything else about the bedrooms was luxurious and obviously to achieve that wardrobes would not fit but the rooms were of a good size, I did contact the owner about a couple of minor points and she was extremely helpful and pleasant.

    Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "It was a very well presented flat, clean and functional."

    The welcome package was a nice surprise. We had reason to text the property owner and they were very helpful. On Comfort we do prefer a king size bed, although we appreciate the bedrooms were not huge. The maintenance manager was very helpful in terms of car spaces - the whole place was good value for money.

  • "Had a really nice stay at River Walk."

    The accommodation was absolutely spotless. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. A book with instructions for the electric hob (only ever used gas) the knack with the front door would be good. The single glazing made you realise how much I appreciate double glazing but I suspect there isn’t anything you can do about it (listed property?) but having said that it didn’t spoil our stay. My daughter and I found it super relaxing. Thank you.Julie

    Thank you so much Julie for your lovely feedback and constructive suggestions. We are happy you had a relaxing stay at River Walk. All of the windows in the building are in the process of being reviewed with an intention to be replaced. Thanks again, Gaby Property Owner

    The allocated parking space was ideal, being in a private courtyard near to the apartment entrance, and we found it easy to get around the lakes from here, whilst enjoying all the benefits of staying in a town centre, such as good restaurants, pubs, and shops.

  • "This is a nice flat."

    Comfortable, warm and well equipped. It’s ideally located for Kendal town centre. I used it as a base for hill walking and again its location is ideal for the eastern/ southern Lake District and the Pennines. Parking bay allocated to flat was of a good size and very close to the main entrance. All in all I would have no hesitation in recommending.

The property

Tucked away in the historic town of Kendal, Cumbria, is this wonderful first-floor apartment, River Walk.

Enjoying a superb location on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park, and just moments away from the local amenities and River Kent, River Walk is a fantastic choice for couples or a family of four.

Be welcomed into the light and airy open-plan living space, where you can cook up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen, ready to savour a delicious meal at the dining table for four over a bottle of wine.

After dinner, retreat to the sumptuous seating, where you can kick-back and relax in front of a much-loved show on the Smart TV.

Continue through to find a contemporary shower room, where you can wash away the day’s adventures, before retreating to one of two well-appointed double bedrooms, one of which has a TV.

Explore the town, where you can enjoy leisurely strolls along the River Kent, visit the historic Kendal Castle affording exceptional views out towards the Lakeland fells, tour Kendal Museum, spend a fun-filled afternoon at Kendal Snowsports Club, wander the Quaker Tapestry Museum, test out your swing at the excellent Kendal Golf Club, or treat your loved ones to a meal at Sapore, Bangkok 7 Thai, and Farmhouse Kitchen.

Venture into the Lake District National Park to find Windermere, where you can try your hand at a plethora of watersports on the famous lake, soak up the views from Queen Adelaide’s Hill and Orrest Head, visit the popular World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, or head to the neighbouring Bowness-on-Windermere, where the foodies of your group can enjoy the Michelin Star delights of HRiSHi, Gilpin Spice and Henrock.

Further afield, you will find Ambleside, home to the stunning Stock Ghyll Force and a 2nd-century Roman Fort, and Grasmere, where you’ll find the former residence of William Wordsworth.

All this and more awaits at River Walk.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
