The property

Boasting character and traditional charm, Forrest's Yard 1 is a truly terrific base from which to celebrate special occasions with all of your loved ones.

Named after the mayor George Forrest who once lived here when he was elected in 1825, this first floor apartment is ideally positioned for a countryside escape full of action-packed adventure.

Inside, the property has been styled with a traditional interior, giving it an aura of elegance, with the kitchen/diner also hosting a contemporary spot in the form of the kitchen with its good range of modern appliances catering to all of your dining requirements.

Take a seat around the dining table together to toast to your fun-filled break, or head into the snug and dig out a board game for an evening of family-fun.

Spend a moment or two in the snug with a loved one, catching up with your favourite moments of the holiday, or gather altogether in the sitting room with the woodburning stove roaring and offering a homely feel to the room, both rooms having the luxury of a Smart TV to put on a classic film.

When your day draws to a close, seek comfort in one of the four bedrooms, choosing from two super-king-size rooms, one doubling up as a convenient twin upon request, a further twin tucked beneath rustic beams in the form of a 4' double and a single with an en-suite cloakroom, and a further twin in a standard layout also with an en-suite cloakroom, providing an elegant spot for each and every member of the group to rest their head in crisp white linens.

Sitting within the historic town of Kendal, you can find a wide range of wonders on your doorstep, from its own museum and the Quaker Tapestry Museum, to a golf club, art galleries, and of course fantastic walking routes leading you into the beauty of the National Park.

Windermere is the perfect place to visit for those seeking to try out a new watersport or explore family-friendly attractions such as The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and the Museum of Boats Steam and Stories, or simply laze on the sands of the beach of Morecambe for a truly tranquil day out.

Offering the ultimate countryside escape, Forrest's Yard 1 is the perfect place from which to create memories with your loved ones.

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.
