  • "My family and I had a very pleasant stay at Summerhow Retreat."

    The owners made us feel very welcome and provided everything we needed. The property and gardens are beautifully maintained and the handy location is an ideal base for exploring the Lake District. We would not hesitate to recommend this holiday property.

  • "This is a lovely secluded spot, just a 20 minute walk to Kendal town centre."

    The property is beautifully presented in it's own grounds away from the main road so a good nights sleep is easy to achieve. It's done to a high standard and had some lovely touches from the owners of a little hamper left on arrival. We met the owners while we were there a few times and they could not have been more friendly, welcoming and accomodating to us. All the major Lakes attractions are within a short drive and this provides a perfect "basecamp" to launch your adventures from, plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants within the area too. We'll certainly be returning in the future :-)

  • "Stunning location with great access to the lakes."

    The apartment is beautifully & tastefully styled, with every comfort catered for. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped and all equipment of high standard. The bed was super comfortable with high quality linen. The bathroom was nicely decorated and the shower had very good pressure. Everything provided was of a high standard and quality. Our hosts were super friendly and available for any extra requirements. Thank you Summerhow Retreat, we will definitely return and recommend to others. Blessings Lucy & Nigel Rodgers.

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.
