  • “The property really needs more attention to detail.”

    This was not a cheap place to stay and I think perhaps because it was the busy summer period standards slipped. There were spiders everywhere. Every. Where. Infested. The cobwebs were so thick in places it was like candyfloss. We had to hoover up about 80 spiders in the first 4 days and they were still appearing after that. The place seems to be riddled with them. Even after hoovering we kept discovering webs. Spiders in every corner is not exactly relaxing. The wooden doors for each room don't ...

    This was not a cheap place to stay and I think perhaps because it was the busy summer period standards slipped. There were spiders everywhere. Every. Where. Infested. The cobwebs were so thick in places it was like candyfloss. We had to hoover up about 80 spiders in the first 4 days and they were still appearing after that. The place seems to be riddled with them. Even after hoovering we kept discovering webs. Spiders in every corner is not exactly relaxing. The wooden doors for each room don't help as the backs of them just seem to have webs in all the gaps. We also noticed a great deal of webs under the beds when we were checking around before leaving which was rather disconcerting! We also read in the guest book about welcome packs that previous guests had received and we had nothing like that. Again it could be due to the rush for turnover in the summer but standards should never slip. Upon arrival the dining room table had crumbs across it, the kitchen floor had bits on it and combined with the spiders in the corner of every room it wasn't the greatest start. First impressions count and we were on the back foot straight away. The curtains are ridiculously light, the sun was waking us all up and we had to try to hang throws over the curtains to try and block out the light. Who had the idea to get white curtains? Quite odd. The lower stairs are extremely noisy, good luck trying to go downstairs in the morning for a cup of tea without waking your family or friends. We have stayed in the Lake District many times and this is the most disappointed we have been with our accommodation. It did not meet expectations and it was nice to get home and not have to have eyes scanning the ceilings for spiders all the time!

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.

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.

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.
