“A fantastic place for a memorable weekend”
Reviewed September 13, 2010

I had picked to come to the Lakes for a surprise weekend away (30th wedding Anniversary) and wanted somewhere special to stay. Mandy and Brian made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The room was large, warm, comfortable and (as many others have said) spotlessly clean. Breakfasts were very tasty and more than enough to keep us going through a day on the fells. The position of Balcony House means that you can be on your way to the hills in a very short time, without getting caught up in town traffic and parking outside is very easy.

We were so impressed that we booked again for a trip next year before we left!

We stayed in the large double with en suite, which was superb, Nicely furnished, very comfortable and everything you would need, even an iron and ironing board in the wardrobe. The food was well cooked, nicely presented and plenty of it. I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the Balcony House on 25.6.10. We loved the room and enjoyed all aspects of the stay including a 1st class breakfast. We hope to return there one day.

The room was spacious and clean with modern furnture and a brand new en-suite bathroom. The owners, Mandy and Brian couldn't have been nicer hosts and the breakfast was great. I would highly recommend this to anyone coming to Kendal. Excellent value for money!

we went to kendal to do some family history and to meet up with friends, we stayed at balcony house for 3 nights, how pleased we were to have chosen this lovely house but it isnt just a house its a real home and it shows. brian and mandy have made their place so welcoming, the food good , the cleanliness was second to none and that bed was to die for, although the room is small the bed more than made up for it for sure, thank you for making our few days so much better and hopefully, god willing ,will be back.we definately reccommend it to anyone going that way, but dont forget to mention the parking to them and they will sort it for you.
