Right in the center of town, ideally placed for access to all that Kendal and the Lakes has to offer. Good food, friendly welcome, clean rooms, well presented and reasonable value for money. Works for anyone wanting a reasonably priced weekend in the Lakes.

I believe the new tenant Andy and his partner have... More
