Without reservation we would recommend Balcony House for anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay whilst travelling. Mandy and Brian were the most welcoming of hosts, offering plenty of great information regarding the area, and also places to visit and eat out at. The house has been beautifully decorated and feels very homey and comfortable. The room and bathroom... More

We stayed here on our way up to Scotland and what a wonderful stay we had! The owners couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating! Dropped us off in town, recommended a lovely restaurant and a great local pub both of which we perfect. The breakfast was gorgeous! Lovely thick bacon and really good quality. Would definitely recommend this place!

Even before we got to Kendal our hosts, Mandy and Brian, were emailing us to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Mandy had noticed we were staying for 5 nights, and thought we may be more comfortable in a larger room than the one we had booked. Upon arrival Mandy gave us a tour of the property and showed us...

We loved it here! From the minute we arrived and Mandi offered to move her car for us everything was exceptional. The room was gorgeous, totally my style, the whole house is very well decorated. The cupcakes were delicious and the yummy chocolates in the room were great! Breakfast was plentiful and very good, again the hosting was spot on.... More

Were in Kendal for our son's wedding and I cannot praise Mandy and Brian at Balcony House highly enough! Warm and welcoming, the house is beautifully decorated with all facilities and very clean. The breakfasts were amazing - almost too much to eat! They even go that one step further and can collect from Oxenholme station. A wonderful place and... More

We enjoyed a three night stay at Balcony House. Mandy and Brian have created something truly special with this amazing guest house. The location, bedroom, breakfast were all perfect but what made this place quite so memorable were this little touches and the way both Mandy and Brian care so much for their guests experience and the local area. They... More

Mandy and Brian made us so welcome in their beautiful house that I felt I had to recommend them. The house is beautiful: well-appointed elegant yet cosy rooms (we were lucky enough to nab the balcony itself!). There are some great little touches: mini bars of Green & Black's chocolate, bottle water and proper cafetiere coffee in the rooms, facewipes... More

We stayed as a couple on the Friday and Saturday night, in Room 1 (with the King Bed). The room was modern, clean and spacious. The house is beautiful, and incredibly well kept and maintained - Brian & Mandy obviously care deeply about Balcony House and their customers. The two of them are very friendly, and Mandy is both a... More

We had a wonderful stay at Balcony House! The first thing you notice is how well presented the house is with wonderful little touches such as cake! The room was immaculately presented in a modern style. Mandy and Brian (and Grace!) are excellent hosts, very knowledgable on the local area and very accommodating with diets. There is nothing to fault!... More
