Exceptionally Clean and Friendly Guest House and would not hesitate to stay there again.. Breakfast was home cooked and of Real Quality. They also supplied me with a Parking Permit for free on street parking.

Wendy and Richard were very helpful. They have a very clean and cozy B&B. There was nothing to dislike. Breakfast was great and if you are looking for an early evening supper we recommend the 'Blue Moon' in town.

Unfortunately we only stayed one night, but found the owners very helpful and friendly. The B&B is well located close to the center of Kendal and within walking distance of multiple Pubs and restaurants. Breakfast was wonderful and the owners helped us find a scenic route to our next destination. We found the rooms clean, neat & tidy and very... More

Cosy, comfy and great value. Smashing people, and great breakfast. Sausages were scrummy ! Just one night stay, but very nice indeed. Great fun going down bank to have dinner, especially if you have wobble knees.

Our every need was catered for from the minute we arrived - parking permit given to park outside, room ready on arrival. We had excellent communication with Richard prior our visit and he guided us for our visit with recommendations which included places to eat. Lovely bedding and an exceptional nights sleep. Wendy prepared a fantastic breakfast which catered for... More

Excellent B+B. Friendly welcome , very nice rooms, very helpful hosts. Breakfast was tops. Well located for central Kendal, and hosts could not be more helpful in recommending bars and restaurants. Highly recommended.

This B&B is run by Richard and Wendy a really lovely couple to whom nothing is too much trouble. We hadn't booked anywhere and had been searching for a couple of hours. I didn't have much hope as the sign said 'No Vacancies' but thought they might know of another B&B. Richard said he did have a room but was... More
