I travel a great deal for work and so absolutely hate hotels. I like to find somewhere nice and comfortable where I can feel at home and relax after a hard day's work. This delightful, quirky little cottage is perfect. It's filled with little homely touches that make you feel comfortable and at home, just how I like it.
This perfect wee cottage right in the heart of kendal is brilliant.
From the hidden location a few paces under the archway and wow your in the bustling shopping streets of kendal.
The cottage was prepared immaculately for our arrival and the quality of fitments very high. Lots of books and videos ,and even stuff for my 6yr old daughter to enjoy.
The owner is very quick to reply to messages, helpful & really friendly.
Warm cosy compact and clean with great location -the perfect holiday cottage.
Definitely 100% will stay there again. Many thanks Lyne for sharing your lovely cottage and giving my Irish family a memorable holiday.
Loved the rain !!

We stayed for four nights in this wonderful little cottage just off the Market Place in Kendal town centre. We couldn't believe how quiet it was considering the Wednesday market was in full swing when we stepped through the gate in the morning. The cottage was warm, inviting and spotlessly clean when we arrived and there was a nice 'welcome' pack left for us of milk, coffee, tea and biscuits.
The bed linen in this cottage has to have a mention because it was the best we have ever seen in a self-catering establishment. Plenty of fluffy white towels too.
Will definitely book again.
This property could not be more central, it is close to everything... shops,bars, restaurants, pubs, cafes and museums. Kendal is a vibrant town. However there is no noise at all even when the weekly market is on. Modern, clean and comfortable. Warm with central heating and a fire. Satellite TV. Well equipped kitchen. But it is the personal touches which make this property special. Games, books, maps, dvd's and as we were staying during the Christmas period the owners had very tastefully decorated with Christmas decorations. Plus the milk!
I cannot rate this wonderful little cottage highly enough. Just off the market place, it is in the centre of all Kendal's attractions, and yet when you close the door it's so quiet. I needed to contact the owner on arrival and she was available at the end of the phone instantly. Everything asked for (feather duvet and pillows etc) was provided.
I spent three weeks there and it was the ideal place at the end of a day's work, and yet when I had "me" time was close to the centre of Kendal (and it's market on Wednesday and Saturday) and all the surrounding countryside. Will definitely book it when I come up to Kendal again.
Great location in the heart of Kendal town centre. Cosy interior and reasonably priced. Great base for being able to just pop out and about around Kendal.
Really helpful in answering questions before we arrived including could we bring our 8 month old baby. Would have been a struggle with toddler but worked fine for a baby as well equiped and thought through interior design.
Only advice would be do your research on how to get from suggested parking spot to the apartment as it is literally hidden away the first time you try to find it!
We know Kendal fairly well but had no idea that this little secluded nook exsisted! We spent a week there with my two daughters and had a really lovely, relaxing and extremely comfortable holiday for a very reasonable price too. The cottage is small as you'd expect but really well designed with lots of attention to detail. We had everything we needed, beautifully presented and felt very much at home. Great touches were the milk in the fridge, tea, coffee and a nice selection of biscuits! We also liked the little sensor night lights, a comforting touch for the kids.
Despite being right next to the market square you can barely hear any noise, even sat in the beautiful little garden. We had good weather and were amazed walking out literally a few feet from the back door at the hustle and bustle in the square, straight from the tranquility of the cottage.
The location is fab being on the doorstep of the whole of the Lakes but if you decide to keep things simple and low key Kendal itself has loads on offer, all within walking distance.
All in all a perfect holiday for our needs, will be going again!
