House in Kendal, Great Britain

Our home dates from the 1880's and is built from the local limestone which gives Kendal is nickname 'the auld grey town'. Originally the home of a wealthy merchant, it was used as a girls boarding school for many years and now provides a fabulous, spacious family home. It has been carefully updated and restored over the years and now offers a perfect blend of modern comforts and traditional elegance.

Our Neighbourhood

Our house is situated less than 1km from the cente of the market town of Kendal with its many shops and excellent bus and train links. We are only 10 minutes walk from the rail station. Kendal is ideally placed for exploring all parts of the Lake District, as well as the quieter but equally beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
As keen outdoors people we have many maps and guidebooks to help you plan your exploration of this beautiful area. I can also arrange kayak and mountainbike hire if required.
