    • “Fantastic,modern well equipped cottage in a good location.”

    • “The cottage was very modern and had everything needed for a lovely relaxing holiday. It was beautifully equipped with all mod cons - sound system, wi, large screen tv and much more. The kitchen was very modern and equipped to a very high standard. The whole apartment was decorated to a very high standard and no fault could be found. The view onto the first tee made interesting viewing and the clubhouse served excellent meals at reasonable prices. Although we did not use the free golf facility this is an added bonus for golfers. The location was very good for exploring the lake district with Windemere being only a 10 minute drive away. The property is suitable for people with some disabilities as there is plenty of room to get around the furniture with a wheeler frame but there is a step up into the shower which can make life difficult if you have trouble with mobility. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.”

    • “We really enjoyed our stay at "Secret Retreat". The accommodation was spacious, clean and very well specified; there is loads to do in the area and we had a wonderful holiday. You also get the benefit of being on the golf course. While we don't play, the clubhouse has a pleasant restaurant that did a nice breakfast and a surprisingly enjoyable dinner. All within 50 metres of the aparment door. The reception at the clubhouse are also able to help with any minor issues during your stay - it's nice to have help on hand. When we stayed, there were a couple of very minor maintenance issues (carpet could do with a shampoo, wires hanging out from the back of the TV etc.) and the clean up before we arrived had missed a couple of things (including emptying the kitchen bin). Nothing that should put you off staying here, but the reason I gave 4 rather than 5 stars. Some things that might help anyone staying here in future: "Secret Retreat" is not the name on the outside of the apartment (you're looking for "Golf Apartment"). Also the directions tell you to look in the key box - this was empty, and in fact the right answer was to go to reception or the restaurant in the clubhouse.”

In an area of peace and quiet, just north of the market town of Kendal and overlooking the first tee of Carus Green Golf Course, the apartment is perfectly situated for those looking to get away from it all.

Regional Information

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.
