Brian & Mandy are exellent hosts, friendly & accomodating. Nothing was ever too much trouble. My boyfriend even got a box of chocolates for his birthday! The guest house itself is clean & stylish.... A lovely stay.

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

You think nothing is perfect? This one was for sure! Executed with perfection! The small extras, immaculate cleanliness of the house and the room, the wonderful hospitality of Mandy and Brian made our stay just perfect. We would recommend the Balcony House to everyone travelling to Kendal. Thank you very much again for the great experience!

Stayed for 2 nights and was very impressed. Mandy and Brian are great hosts, our room was immaculate and nicely decorated and breakfast freshly made to order. Was the little extras that made our stay at Balcony House, one that we will remember. Freshly made cupcakes that you can help yourself to, cafetiere coffee and little bars of Green &... More

What can I say about the Balcony House? I loved the way the bedrooms were decorated. I loved the home made cakes that we could help ourselves to. The host and hostess were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was the best I have ever had anywhere. What can I say about the Balcony House? In the words of Tina... More

Mandy and Brian are fabulous hosts at this stylish, great value B&B which is quietly located within easy walking distance to Kendal town- 5 mins walk. Rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast is a real treat- your choice of fruit, cereals and yoghurts alongside a full English! We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this b&b.

My other half decided to book us an impromptu night away in the Lakes and after some looking around he picked Balcony House. I have to say his choice was spot on. The house is beautiful both inside and out and Mandy and Brian are very friendly and welcoming. The bedroom we had was gorgeous and the added touches such... More
