  • “A wonderful location for visiting the Lake District, Morecambe Bay, the Howgills and Yorkshire Dales.”

    This is one of our favourite places to stay when in the North-West, but on this occasion was not as well cleaned as is usually the case; hopefully, this is just a one-off slippage, and we quite understand that Covid-19 restrictions have meant that the helpful owners cannot visit their property. On the final day, when stripping the bed linen, we found that the mattress needed a thorough cleansing, for example. Nevertheless, this was a very enjoyable holiday and we hope to return at some point.

The property

5 The Granary is a spacious and comfortable barn conversion located just outside the market town of Kendal.

Formerly used as a grain store for the neighbouring farm, this beautiful end-terrace cottage sleeps up to 7 guests, ideal for families who wish to come together to explore the Lake District National Park and the surrounding regions.

The inviting sitting room is finished with carpet throughout, and hosts a dining table in which you can gather at mealtimes.

The French doors can opened to bring the outside in, perfect on a warm day.

The well-equipped kitchen offers several integrated appliances to make your culinary experience as convenient as possible.

On the first floor there are two king-size doubles and family room, while the remaining single bedroom is positioned on the second floor.

Each bedroom has been tastefully furnished with soft bedding to ensure you are well rested.

The enclosed patio and lawn offers a space to simply embrace the tranquil surroundings, perhaps well accompanied with a glass of wine or a good book.

Kendal is a busy market town with a wealth of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as offering plenty of beautiful architecture through Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall.

About the location

KENDAL

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.

Property sleeps 6 adults maximum. There is a single day bed suitable for children only aged 12 years and under so can accommodate 6 adults and 1 child
