We were so lucky to stumble across this fantastic B&B in the Lake District! Kendal is a great base location in the South of the Lakes to view beautiful lakes, undertake picturesque walks and visit local towns. Over the course of a long weekend we visited the likes of: Buttermere, Ullswater, Windermere, Keswick and Penrith without feeling like we spent... More

Nice, quiet B&B with an energetic, helpful owner. Yvonne knows and loves the area (including Lake district National Park). Not a posh, super-luxury B&B, but a comfortable spot for travelers to the area.

Lovely warm welcome from the landlady, who gave great advice on where to visit and eat. The room was clean and spacious, with a extra large bed. The view from our room was looking over the river and the guest house is in a great location for easy access to everything. Would definitely go back.

Fabulous landlady, fresh milk & banana cake, fast wifi, comfy bed, good breakfast. Quirky & perfectly lovely & just the job for a brief stopover. If there are 2 of you staying, don't pick room 5 as there really is only enough room for 1.
