About the location

We are happy to welcome you to our wonderful town with stunning scenery on your doorstep.

A tastefully modernised Victorian townhouse in a sought after location in the beautiful historic town of Kendal. On the north side of town it gives easy access to the Lake District, now a World Heritage Site, with the National Park boundary just a mile away. Ten miles to the east are the glorious Yorkshire Dales.

Kendal Green is a stunning expansive tree lined public green space which our house fronts. To the rear is the backdrop of Kendal Fell which provides walks into the National Park directly from the house. Scout Scar and Cunswick Scar can easily be reached and provide stunning views of the Lake District Fells.

Kendal is a hidden gem, a lovely historic town in a beautiful location with the River Kent providing scenic riverside walks and with fine Georgian and Victorian buildings climbing the fellside. There are some great pubs and restaurants in the town and local area and an M&S, Booths and other town centre shops are just a short walk away. We also have a lively arts scene at the Brewery Arts Centre, with cinema and theatre, bars and restaurants.

Buses to the Lakes stop nearby and there are trains to the Lakes and along the West Coast mainline with easy day trips to Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The sublime Lake District provides a wealth of walks, boat-trips and visitor attractions. The beautiful Levens Hall with its topiary historic gardens and the stunning Art and Crafts house Blackwell are just a few miles away. Visits to lovely historic towns and villages, such as Kirkby Lonsdale and Cartmel, provide further local interest. The nearby Yorkshire Dales also provide a many attractions and awesome landscapes.
