Having been a regular visitor to Kendal over the years when performing for the Kendal Midday Concert Society, I suddenly found Summerhow on the internet and thought it looked rather special. I was not disappointed. The house is beautiful and the room that my friend and I stayed in was tastefully furnished and very comfortable. John and Janey (and the...

We stayed with John and Janey last weekend - very friendly, helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and had the feeling of staying with some very smart relatives! We were even asked if we wanted tea and scones in front of the fire on Saturday afternoon! The breakfasts were excellent too! High recommended.

We visited Kendal on the first weekend of October and had a good time for several reasons. Kendal is a lovely old town with numerous places to stay, and in the past we have been in quite a few. The best by far, is the Summerhow House B&B!! The house, just outside Kendal, sits in its own grounds, surrounded by...

We stayed here for with friends and all agreed that one night is too short a stay. The house is beautiful and our welcome could not have been warmer from John and Janey. Our bedrooms were comfortable, large and really thoughtfully furnished - from alarm clocks and bedside lights on both bedside tables through to a well stocked tea tray...

My husband and booked this B&B after failing to find a hotel that didn't have exorbitant rates in the Lake District. I was not pleased having had to book a B&B due to bad experiences in the '80's, and I do like the anonymity of a hotel. Gosh, I soon changed my mind and am rather in two minds about...

We couldn't have hoped for nicer place to stay -- it was perfect -- Janey and John are most welcoming hosts and the house and garden are amazing. The room was really sweet and awoke in the morning with sheep grazing out of the window and a super breakfast awaiting downstairs -- don't pass this one by -- its a...

You will not find a place as perfect, beautiful, and wonderful as Summerhow!! My husband and I stayed at Summerhow over a long summer weekend. We found Summerhow through American Express concierge and with rave reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to book a room. We were looking for a quintessential English getaway at an intimate B&B that was luxurious but...

If you are looking for a nicer, friendlier, more interesting place to stay in the Lake District then you may as well give up right now because our stay here couldn't have been any better. There is little to really add about the stunning countryside of the Lake District where Summerhow House is set, except that this is the perfect...

Our first trip to the UK and summerhow house couldn’t have provided a better welcome. We were fortunate to arrive on a beautiful day in May, so after we were shown our room we could enjoy some afternoon tea with fudge on the terrace which provided an excellent view of the garden and the country side. The next day we...

We visited Summerhow as a birthday treat, and a treat it was! You couldn't fault anything about the place, the beautiful old house, attention to detail, wonderful owners who couldn't be more accomodating! Well worth a visit!
