I visit Kendal regularly to visit family. Have tried other guest houses but for comfort and lots of little extras there is absolutely no reason to look elsewhere than Glenholme. The owner was very welcoming. The choice and quality of the breakfast was excellent and I can't rate it highly enough.

We were stuck in Kendal because of the floods and were so pleased to find this place. Lovely, welcoming owner and clean and comfortable rooms. The breakfast was delicious and really good value for money too !

Glenholme is exactly what you'd want a B&B in the lakes to be - cosy, friendly and central, with comfy beds (or at least, ours was). But it has 3 major things that set it apart: 1. Mrs Capstick, who was as warm as her rooms, couldn't do enough and was genuinely interested and interesting to talk to. 2. The... More

For the price of the room, the value is incredible, for £70 on a saturday night?!?! we were provided with fruit, water, sweeties, kendal mint cake, kit Kats, luxury toiletries and even a bottle of milk in the mini fridge to add to the massive array of teas and coffees. Most certainly one of the comfiest beds We have ever... More

Four of us stayed in this B&B during a one-night stopover during the Walney to Wear cycling trip. We were part of a larger group, the other 20+ stayed in the hostel in Kendal. We were certainly glad that we opted to 'upgrade' to more comfortable B&B accommodation. The B&B is very conveniently located, just a short (5 minute or... More

I stayed at Glenholme for three nights last week. The proprietor is a treasure, nothing too much trouble. Every comfort given to guests. the breakfast was extensive and excellent quality, from the fruit salad to the smoked salmon. the cooked English breakfast was served hot and cooked just right. Everything was plentiful.
