This is a lovely place, basic but brilliant! Wendy and Richard are really welcoming, the house is warm and comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Lovely shower, plenty of hot water. Nothing more to say!

Terrible steep hill, it is not called Hillside without good reason. Very hard to find once you reach Beast Banks, you see a gate with 1 to 5 written on it so you expect to find 4, Hillside, there. Yet what you get is the need for a phonecall as place is way way up on opposite side of the... More

Clean and comfortable, excellent breakfast, but the local knowledge and helpfulness of the the host, Richard, was what made this B&B outstanding. He warned us that the pub we were planning to walk to for lunch at didn't serve food on Sundays and suggested another that did, suggested booking at a recommended restaurant if we planned to have an evening...

This excellent B&B is up quite a steep hill, as the name shows, but don't let this put you off! The building is in attractive surroundings and a number of rooms have long distance views. The B&B is on Beast Banks, and in the Museum of Lakeland Life, the old Post Office from Beast Banks is the one used in... More

Spent one night here after visiting relatives nearby. The B&B is comfortable, spotlessly clean, the owners friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good. Free WiFi in every room and free on-street parking using permit provided are real bonuses. Highly recommended.

Our stay was wonderful, Wendy and Richard made us VERY welcome, the place is spotless, lovely rooms and all en suite. Comfy bed and a fabulous breakfast with a good menu choice. Short walk into the historic town of Kendal and very central to visit the hills and lakes of the area.

Stayed for the one night whilst on business in the town. Easy walk into the centre. Free on-street parking using permit provided. Much more pleasant stay than the over-priced hotels in the town. Reasonably priced and an immaculate house. Good wifi. Great breakfast. Will definitely use again. Thanks Richard, Ian
