Company information

Yvonne, your welcoming host, welcomes everyone at Lyndhurst Guest House. Although Yvonne loves the Guest House, in her spare time she can be found climbing, cycling or walking Jasper (the resident dog here at Lyndhurst - not allowed upstairs!) in the beautiful Lake District. Since moving to Kendal 18 years ago, Yvonne has fallen in love with the market town daily. Perfectly situated in South Lakeland, it makes a fantastic base to explore all the Lake District has to offer. Lyndhurst loves to make a difference where it can. Surrounded by the beautiful Lake District, we are inspired everyday to do what we can to protect our lush landscape. Low food waste, recycling, and green energy are just some of the ways we’re doing our bit. If you'd like any recommendations, from where to eat to where to walk, please do ask Yvonne!

Neighbourhood information

Kendal is a market town based in South Lakeland. Often described as “The Gateway to the Lakes”, it makes a wonderful base to explore all of the Lake District without being confined to being seasonal or a “tourist trap”. Kendal is vibrant with arts, culture, and events year round and allows guests for a proper taste of Lakeland life. Whether you want to explore the historical Abbot Hall Art Gallery, immerse yourself in the Brewery Arts Centre, or indulge in the 1657 chocolate house there’s plenty to do within a 10 minute walk away. If you’d like to explore further afield, Kendal makes a good base for visiting well known Lake District spots. Windermere is accessible by a short train, drive, or bus ride. If you are looking to put your walking boots on, there’s plenty of famous and lesser known walks alike near Kendal depending on your mood. Please do ask Yvonne for recommendations.
