The Glen is a family concern with an excellent reputation for friendly service and large freshly cooked breakfasts using local produce. It is situated on the outskirts of Kendal, in a quiet location in its own grounds under "The Helm" (local walk and view point of Kendal, the Lake District Mountains and Morecambe Bay), but within a 200 metres of country Inn and restaurant. All rooms are en suite, with most having bath and shower. For that special occasion we have, our Luxury suite with en suite Bathroom with shower and a double room with large en suite bathroom with Double Bath and separate walk-in shower. We have a large family/twin room with view of 'The Helm' plus a large ground floor suite with king size bed. All rooms have freeview TV with DVD. Outside, relax on our patio before taking an evening walk on 'The Helm' to watch the sunset over the Lakeland Mountains, then a drink or meal in our local Inn.

A little gem close to all the Lake District points of interest. This is quite possibly the cleanest hotel I’ve ever stayed in.The attention to detail is plain to see and it makes this place stand out from some of the other more expensive hotels. Breakfast was freshly made and top quality. Definitely recommend this place.

he Glen is located close to the railway station and, arguably more importantly, to the local pub where they serve excellent meals! Our hosts were great- attentive throughout and always looking to ensure that we had everything we needed. Breakfast was excellent with many choices and always with fresh, mainly local produce. Our room was clean, tidy and had just about everything needed including a tray of just about all types of tea, coffee and even hot chocolate. All-in-all, we were well looked after during our four night stay at The Glen. The only negative point was that our room was adjacent to the road. For most of the time, this was no problem but there was quite a lot of local traffic early in the morning which was a little disturbing.

We stayed at the Glen in August and were not disappointed, the guest house was perfect and nothing to much trouble for the host's, breakfast was outstanding and all locally sourced products. The room was spacious and the choice of teas/coffee choice were brilliant.

The reception by the host was very warm, she explained the Covid steps being taken. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was highly recommended and did not dissapoint. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. I would certainly reccomend this guet house.
