Everyone was polite and friendly and very willing to ensure that we were well cared for. Breakfast and all meals were excellent. The Punch Bowl is an excellent place to stay for visiting Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall Gardens.

With a 4-star rating from Visit Britain, the Glen Guest House near Kendal offers high-quality accommodation with free Wi-Fi, parking and cycle storage. Around 10 minutes’ drive from the Lake District, this Cumbrian guest house offers a range of breakfasts and is a short walk from a country pub and restaurant.

We travelled over for a few days for my husband's 40th, and such a nice touch was left in the room for him. The room was lovely and cosy, it was spotless. The breakfast was delicious - I loved the pre-ordering system, every B&B should do this! Pauline and Bill were so nice, knowledgeable and willing to accommodate anything, I loved the way both came out every morning at breakfast for a chat. The place feels like a big, warm hug. We will be back, thanks again guys for a brilliant weekend! P.S. Skip the Station Inn and eat at Ye Olde Fleece Pub in Kendal, the BBQ ribs are to die for, we went back every night!

Cosy 2 Bedroom Flat in Lake District is set in Kendal, 36 km from Trough of Bowland, 38 km from Askham Hall, as well as 50 km from Derwentwater. The property is non-smoking and is situated 16 km from World of Beatrix Potter.

The property is newly renovated and is very fresh, quiet, bright and clean. Literal steps to anything in Kendal town centre - the location is ideal for exploring the town. Note that the flat is in the middle of a pedestrian-only precinct, so there is no adjacent parking. We had small issues with taxi pick-ups as there is no direct car access to the flat. On the whole, we felt this was an advantage, as it made for a very quiet, peaceful environment. Absolutely loved the flat entrance with the “shambles-esque” alleyway. Could not be more central, we walked everywhere in town in under 10 minutes. Bedrooms and common area were comfortable and bright.

    The host at romneys was so lovely and welcoming. She showed us the stables where we were staying. She was so apologetic and empathetic when she explained that the restaurant could not squeeze us in on an early sitting as they were full. If you visit, book early!!! We would definitely return though as the little park is so ideal for little ones and we found the accommodation really comfortable.
