Excellent accommodation tucked away from the crowds. You're made to very welcome by the owner and the hens!! Cosy, warm and welcoming. An ideal place to recharge after a day walking and exploring the Lake District. Idyllic
A small apartment type home from home approx 4 miles from Kendal, The Hen House is I believe an actual renovated hen house situated on a small farm, ideal location for those who enjoy the quiet life. A spacious living-room/kitchen-diner, two bedrooms one with double the other two singles and a small but adequate shower-room. Outside there is a small seating area and a good sized paddock for your dog to have a safe run=about. My wife and I with our dog JD managed to pack loads into our three day/night stay. It is an ideal base to travel around the Lake- District. We would return each evening ready to relax with a glass of wine and something to eat and plan for the next day. Mark and Lesley are a great couple who just let us get on with things but were always available to answer any questions and give advice as to the best places to go for take-aways, restaurants and pubs to go to if we preferred to go out for a drink. Thank you both for a great few days and we all hope to visit and stay again in the future.
Wonderful cottage in an ideal situation. Views from the cottage are marvellous and Lesley & Mark are most friendly & helpful. Lovely walks for the dog. Sad news that the hens had been killed the weekend we arrived by an angry fox. The Hen House has everything you could want for a holiday stay and the rooms were very comfortable. Would most definitely stay again.
We found the Hen House to be a lovely little cottage, really cosy and comfortable with lots of homely touches. Everything we needed for a break away with our dogs. We only managed 1 night here as we had a plumbing emergency at home so didn't get to try the local pubs etc. We will come back again as it's in a great location for sightseeing in the Lakes as we felt really at home here.
