Mandy and Brian are both very... More

Was delighted to have found the Balcony House Bed & Breafst in Kendal. Warm welcome from Brian and Wendy. The double room was excellent and even though my bathroom was acrss the landing it was not an issue. The breakfast was fantastic and freshly cooked. Would return when in Kendal to stay aagin.
