“Beautiful property in a beautiful town”
Reviewed October 2, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The Parsonage is a beautiful old building sectioned off into 4 (I think) homes, there is parking outside of the parsonage, the large lounge room is very homely and comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need - from fridge freezer to microwave, toaster, oven, grill, hob, small table for 2 and all the utensils you would find at home! The bed is comfortable and the roll top bath in the bedroom is an added bonus to the shower room.
Dogs are welcome and our Vinyl found the bay window a great place to sleep and watch the world go by - there is a secure private garden which he could play in without us worrying that he would escape.
The only things we had to buy were oil (for frying bacon and eggs) and tomato sauce!!
There is a lovely traditional pub 5 mins round the corner called The Castle Inn - very friendly, clean and comfortable with basic but very nice food, again dogs welcome!
It was only a ten minute stroll to the town centre and a lovely walk uphill to the castle from just along the road to The Parsonage.
We were unlucky with the weather (it rained every day) but we still put on our waterproof coats and went out exploring!
Boness on Windermere was a 20 minute drive away but we did notice you could get a train to Windermere and buses.
Not much more to say - just a perfect base for two, homely, comfortable well thought out accommodation - we will definitely go back!

“Great location”
Reviewed July 6, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The apartment is ideally situated to walk in to Kendal. The kitchen is well provided with crockery, cooking utensils, in fact everything needed was there. We ate out each night but if we'd eaten in, we'd have found the stools and breakfast bar uncomfortable. A pity a small table wasn't available as there was ample room in the lounge. The shower is good although, as we have found in many rental apartments, there is nowhere to put toiletries in the bathroom. Also, the fan is very noisy and stays on for quite a while.
We enjoyed our stay and found it very quiet and relaxing. The French doors onto the small yard are lovely, especially on sunny days( as we had).

Thankyou so much for your review of The Parsonage. We have asked guests in the past if they thought a bistro set in the lounge would be be used and the response we have had is not really, a second sofa and clear view out of the bay window was seen as preferable. Most guests do like to eat out anyway but perhaps we may consider this is in the future. The breakfast bar is an added extra in the kitchen area. There is the vanity cupboard in the bathroom for toiletries and yes the fan is a little noisy we are sorry if this was an issue.

We appreciate the time you have taken to write your review.

Thankyou and best wishes.

“Great location, lovely apartment and great for the dog.”
Reviewed June 21, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Great apartment, plenty of room with lovely details and a nice touch to find wine and chocolates left for us. Couldn't fault it at all and the fact Kendal Castle was 5 mins from the door was doggie heaven for our Cass. Kendal has a good variety of shops only 10 mins away and of course being the gateway to the Lakes makes it an ideal base.

We would definitely stay again and recommend friend of this relaxing place to stay.

“Loved it, would stay again!”
Reviewed March 15, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

I booked here for a suprise getaway for my parents before Christmas.
Petrina, the owner of the place has been absolutely brilliant with communicating with me and helping me arrange so much along the way!
They helped send me as much information to pass onto my parents as I needed, shared the excitement with me for booking this getaway as a gift, and whilst they were there communicated with myself to see how they were getting on also, which was very nice!

My parents really enjoyed their sty, they have already been recommending to friends about coming to stay here and want to stay here again themselves.
Complimentary drinks and chocolate were left as a welcome gesture for them, which is a lovely touch that was appreciated.
They said it's a great central location, loved the homely touches made within the rooms, and felt very well rested having stayed here.
Thank you for a lovely stay, from myself and on behalf of my parents!

“Lovely Bath”

Really nice flat near Kendal Castle, with easy walking distance to town. We really enjoyed our chilled out weekend stay, the bath was a nice relaxing touch. Would be great after a good days walk.
