  • Caryn’s place is absolutely stunning and we feel lucky to have had the chance to stay here. It’s a lovely big space, very arty and peaceful - lovely big bath, comfortable sofa, smart tv, coffee machine and Caryn even baked us some bread and left yoghurts, orange juice and milk in the fridge. It was perfect. The house is right in the heart of Kendal so despite the rain we found lots to do and there is a lovely pub at the end of the road. If you are driving there and parking your car just be aware it’s extremely tight and narrow on the road so opt for a smaller car if possible! Thank you Caryn for having us we’d love to visit again one day. Mick & Caroline

  • Beautiful stay with amazing hospitality

    Eleana2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic late January stay at Colour House. The apartment is as impressive, arty and spacious as it looks in the pictures and the additional touches of local produce, home baked bread, tea, coffee etc. were great. The location in the heart of Kendal is excellent and we found the buses provided a cheap and easy way to explore into the Lakes, whether to Windermere, Ambleside or Cartmel for its restaurants (the latter a short taxi ride from Grange over Sands). Caryn was a perfect and very welcoming host. Very friendly, quick to reply to questions pre visit and asked us if we wanted anything from the shops during our stay. The weekend was to mark a milestone birthday and provided great memories for us. We will definitely stay again if/when we revisit the area. Thank you Caryn!

    Adam2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Caryn is a wonderful host, We really enjoyed our stay. We were well looked after. Already looking forward to planning another trip to Kendal.

    Anna2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a very relaxing few days at the colour house. Caryn is a wonderfully thoughtful host. The colour house is a great base to be able to explore Kendal and the Lakes.

    Claire2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I’ll start with one word! Wow! What a fantastic space! Our little family trio had the most wonderful little trip to Kendal for a two night stay in in winter! Caryn was so welcoming and made our stay really comfortable! To finish off our break we woke to a picture perfect view of snowy rooftops and chimneys on the Sunday! Made it very difficult to leave!! Thanks for having us Caryn! Looking forward to booking with you again in the new year!! Kim, James abs little Ralph x x x

    Kim And James2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Huge warm, homely but stylish living room with WiFi, big TV, DVDs, Netflix, books, magazines and games galore, lots of sofas and pouffes on which to sit or sprawl and a fine view over the rooftops of Kendal to the fells beyond. Free standing bath, double sink, lovely soap and shampoo.. Mattress had a bit of a dip but otherwise comfortable, hot water bottles provided. Caryn was an excellent host, providing breakfast, homemade bread, flowers, washing up our pots and even asking us if we needed any shopping doing! With a extra supplement for my partner on top of cleaning fees etc. the place was a bit more than I'd normally pay for somewhere without cooking facilities but a lovely treat for Christmas.

    Gaynor2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great space, really unique! Fantastic hospitality, some really thoughtful touches like homemade bread and mince pies. Very flexible with check-in and out times, very welcoming with quick responses.

    My stone terrace cottage is located in one of Kendal's conservation areas and 5 minutes walk to the station, town centre and the river Kent. The cottage is a cosy, quiet, relaxing space with an enclosed wildlife garden at the back of the house.
    The house was built in 1820 as an old weavers house apparently. I renovated it 8 years ago with an open plan kitchen and lounge with wood burning stove. The kitchen has an fan oven and gas hob, fridge and freezer, kettle, toaster and microwave, and everything you need to cook meals or enjoy a take-out. There is a small kitchen table and chairs that you can get out and use in the house or for breakfast in the garden. The log burner is a treat in winter with a free supply of wood. There is Wifi and a selection of books and maps, allowing you to make the most of your stay. The bedroom is a good size with a comfortable double bed, wardrobe (with full length mirror inside), chest of draws and chair. The bathroom has a bath/shower combination. The enclosed garden out the back gets the sun in the morning till early evening in the summer so you can sit have breakfast or dinner and watch the bees buzzing around wildflowers, pick herbs for cooking or alpine strawberries for breakfast if there are any left :) There's bike (or general kit) storage out the back or in the cellar should you need it. Also bike cleaning facilities. You will have a parking permit for the local area so can park for free either outside the house or nearby. It does get full late afternoon when residents come back from work so you might have to park in one of the adjacent streets. its fine to load outside the door though. Everyone does it.
    Kendal is an old market town situated in what i think is one of the most beautiful parts of the country – the Lake District. Its also within 30 minutes drive of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, making it a perfect base for outdoor sport addicts, walkers and sightseers....

You I had great times being a guest through airbnb before I began hosting and I want my guests to have a great time being here too. I like meeting people and finding out about their lives and travels. I live separately so guests can relax and enjoy the privacy of their own home from home.

  • Very nice spacious ground floor of big Victorian house near Kendal centre. Lovely walk up to castle behind house and across river at bottom of road. Comfy beds, nice big kitchen, lovely and warm. Friendly helpful co-host Merv was on site and nice touches included lovely loaf, jam and milk. Highly recommended

    Pete2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts left us bread and milk which was fantastic for when we arrived. There was lots of space in the living room and two double bedrooms. Kitchen is fully equipped and the location is great for a short walk into the middle of town. Really recommend it.

    Jennie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space suitable for a small family located seconds away from Kendal Castle and a stones throw to the town centre, just what we were after. Also if your looking for a place to stay with small animals this is a perfect place. Little Bruce our French bulldog loved his time too. Rachel’s Kendal retreat get the thumbs up from me.

    Ash2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely stay at Rachel’s place which is very quiet, comfortable and clean. Easy access to the Main Street of Kendal. Would love to stay here again.

    Somashekar2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel’s place was perfect for us. The accommodation was situated in a quiet road about 10 minutes’ walk to the centre of Kendal. It was warm, cosy, exceptionally clean and beautifully furnished with little quirky touches. Kendal is a lovely little town with plenty of choice for eating and drinking. We had a lovely time and will definitely return.

    Barbara2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely clean well laid out apartment. Really nice touches and quick messages. Happy to offer local tips and there’s a folder full of information. Brilliant location and lovely host. All of us would 100% recommend. Encountered no problems at all. Brilliant stay - thank you :)

    South facing, small, traditional Shepherd's hut with views, internal shower, compost toilet, log burner, kitchen area. 2 mins by car to Kendal. Scenic walks from doorstep. Kendal is an attractive market town with an eclectic range of shops, cafes, restaurants, and a lively Arts Centre with a cinema and theatre.
    Please note we are NOT on a bus route. You must have a car or rely on taxis into town (2 mins). Our Shepherd's Hut is a unique place to stay: It is situated on the junction between the rural road to Underbarrow and a bridle- way named Gamblesmire Lane which leads to Cunswick Scar and Scout Scar, so it's ideally situated for country walks. It is fully insulated with sheep's wool so is snug, comfortable and warm. There is a microwave, electric kettle, toaster, indoor shower and a compost lavatory. There is a thermostatically controlled electric heater and a Hobbit wood burning stove for cosy evenings in. The stove heats the hut up very effectively, and we often chuckle when people light it on a warm evening and then fling open all the doors and windows when it gets as hot as a sauna. A good tip is to open the little window above the top bunk as this created a cooling draught of air without being too cold. You can walk out of the door and along Gamblesmire Lane, a footpath that leads to Scout Scar and Cunswick Fell. There are bird feeders beside the window so you can watch the birds at close range, including woodpeckers, and will wake to bird song. As the hut faces south east, you will see the sun rise over the hills and the valley below. On clear nights, you'll see the moon rise. At night, owls hoot in the coppice nearby and in summer there are bats flitting about the hut. At present, the shower works but isn't very powerful as there's not enough water pressure. There is cold water in the bathroom sink and hot water in the living area. In frosty weather the water supply has to be turned off and guests use the bathroom facilities in the house. There is bottled water in the hut. There's a seating area outside the hut with a table and chairs and a small firepit. It is situated in it's own little garden, quite near to our house where we also host Airbnb guests and are on hand to help you with suggestions for exploring the wonderfully green, gentle hills of the Lyth and Winster valley with their numerous green lanes and lovely views. The hut is next to the fell footpath gate and there are horse riders, mountain bikers and walkers going by at times, so expect to enjoy saying hello and having a pleasant chat. In summer, there are Lakeland Hound Trail races up the fell. This is a traditional Lakeland sport and very exciting to watch if you get the chance. (It has nothing to do with fox hunting, by the way). The living space in the hut is 7 feet by 16 feet, so it's about the same size as a small towing caravan but with much more charm and character! Shoes off indoors, please! Don't drain crockery on the lovely wooden sink top. Please dry up with one of our best tea towels instead!
    Please note, that WE ARE NOT ON A BUS ROUTE and you will need a car to get here from Kendal. There is a car rental next to Kendal station. Public transport will take you to the main tourist areas, but not to the most beautiful and scenic. It is also very slow and frustratingly infrequent. Convenient as a base for the southern Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, our hut is in a secluded position in our garden with easy parking on the driveway. There is a scenic footpath beside it named Gamblesmire Lane that leads to Cunswick Scar, Scout Scar and footpaths to Underbarrow and Crook. Kendal market town is a 2 minute drive by car or a 40 minute walk across the Scar. It has lots of interesting small shops, a market on Wednesday and Saturday, a fabulous Climbing Wall, the Brewery Arts Centre, interesting historic buildings and yards and excellent cafes. There is also The Museum of Lakeland Life and Abbot Hall Art Gallery. Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are a few miles to the south of the town. There are 5 award winning country inns that serve great food within a 10 to 20 minute scenic car journey of the hut. The nearest, at Underbarrow 10 minutes away is The Black Labrador. There is also a rural pizza delivery service, if you fancy a night in and a take away.
  • Just spent the weekend here, was absolutely amazing! Lovely little hut, very cosy and perfect for a weekend away whilst exploring different parts of the Lake District. Susan was an absolutely brilliant host, very friendly and helpful throughout! Would definitely recommend!

    Luci2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Extremely cosy Shepherds Hut designed with relaxation in mind. Loved the extra touches of fresh bread, coffee and other treats.

    Lauren2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had an excellent stay, the shepherd's hut is a lovely little space in a beautiful part of the world! Would highly recommend.

    Jamie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Second time staying in Susan’s Shepherd’s Hut, and we enjoyed it even more due to the wonderfully cosy Hobbit stove! Susan goes out of her way to make the stay as comfortable as possible - she heated up the hut when we arrived late after work in total pea soup, and again when it stormed the day after. Little extra touches make this space truly magical, from milk and water in the fridge, a bottle of wine and cheese at arrival, butter and fresh bread with jams and cereals out, to being super responsive and helpful with local tips. We can’t wait to stay again!

    Inga2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Susan’s Shepherds Hut is gorgeous, such a lovely space! There a many thoughtful touches and Susan had lit the fire for my arrival. She was also incredibly responsive and helpful. The hut is in a great location, a very short drive from Kendal, with easy access to many other Lake District sights. Highly recommend!

    Catrina2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful area surrounded with beauty, cosy and snug perfect for two people. Fresh bread, biscuits and a warm fire awaited us. Susan puts her all into welcoming you, would stay again.

    Alex2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was as cute and pristine as the pictures. Susan was a lovely host and her place is beautiful. The bed and bedding is super comfy and the little burner keeps the hut lovely and cosy. I loved the trinkets inside and I loved watching the birds on a morning while having a coffee from the well stocked supplies. We would 100% recommend Susan’s place.

    Beckie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in Susan's delightful Shepard's Hut. Upon arrival we were greeted with a ready lit fire, sourdough, butter, milk, jam and little chocolates. Susan was the perfect host.

    * Corona Virus edit: We are still taking bookings. We are in a rural setting with no immediate neighbours * The Bothy at Cowmire Hall is a delightful, first-floor converted farm building, consisting of a hall, large living-room/kitchen open to the roof, a shower-room and double bedroom. There is also a gallery or sleeping-platform above the kitchen area which can be accessed via a ladder from the living room/used as a bedroom at your own risk and there is also a sofa bed in the living room.
    The main living area is open plan and vaulted to the ceiling with exposed beams and trusses. A Juliette balcony opens out on to the inner farm yard giving views of Whitbarrow Scar, an impressive limestone escarpment and well worth a walk to the top, where views of the neighbouring valleys and beyond on a clear day are a must. The kitchen is well-equipped with plenty of crockery, utensils, serving and cooking dishes, pans, baking trays, making life easy if you want to enjoy home cooking during your stay. It is open plan to the main living space, meaning guests can interact whether relaxing on the sofa or rustling up a delicious meal. There is a large electric range style cooker as well as a microwave, fridge and dishwasher. The Bothy is centrally heated and also has a wood burner - perfect for a night in. Kindling and logs are provided, baskets are stocked on arrival and guests are invited to top up from the woodshed during their stay. The living area had a large TV screen with DVD player, internet is free and is Fibre to home Broadband, giving excellent connection should you need it. Fuel, bed-linen and towels are included. The Bothy sleeps up to six people, with the option of a double bed, sofa bed or two single floor beds on the mezzanine (open to the main living area). Please note that the mezzanine is accessed by a cut out wooden wall ladder. The bathroom has an electric shower, basin, toilet and large linen cupboard. There is a utility room on the ground floor (separate entrance) with use of a sink, washing-machine, tumble-drier, freezer space and space for bicycles etc. There is an outside sitting area with table and barbecue. The Bothy looks out to the south over a farm-yard to Cowmire Hall - a C16 pele tower extended in the late C17, where the owners live - its garden and the Winster Valley. To the north the view is of the farm orchard. There is not any livestock in this yard, though tractors come and go, and our hens have the run of the space during the day. Guests may park cars here. The yard is separated from the main road by a gate, and the house by a wall and gate, giving a safe space for dogs to be off the lead. We would however ask that they are exercised either along the lanes or adjoining fields.
    There are 2 local pubs within walking distance of The Bothy, one being the famous Masons Arms at Strawberry Bank and also the Hare and Hounds at Bowland Bridge. Walking takes about 15/20 minutes to these fantastic pubs, both of which allow dogs.
  • Nothing better than staying in a Bothy for a full immersion in the Lake District. Rebecca’s place has all the basics, and the atmosphere is homely and welcoming with a warm log stove and comfortable sofas in what was clearly a very old barn, converted to a good standard. The Bothy is in wonderful countryside with lots to see, do and eat nearby. Thanks for sharing!

    Matthew2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great countryside location close to Lake Windermere - well maintained and lots of character

    Nathan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Arunya2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Our kids loved hearing all the farm animals. Great log burner....very cosy.

    Emily2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to stay whilst in the Lake District. Rebecca was very welcoming and helpful, the accommodation was clean, comfortable and great fun for us city folk. We will be telling all and sundry about our stay and urging them to book so I'd be quick if you want to enjoy the bothy.

    Daniel2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Bothy is beautiful. Put the kettle on and have a cuppa by the log burner and read a book or watch a film. The entire place was clean, comfortable and quaint. The little touches Rebecca adds such as the blankets, the towels, the decorative ornaments make its feel like a home. The kitchen has everything you need, even spare dog bowls. Rebecca was lovely and responded quickly to any questions I had. Being greeted by the chickens in the morning is a delight too. It’s also only a 15 minute drive to Windermere where you can get the ferry over the Ambleside. The walks are peaceful, especially when the sun is shining.

    Spout House - The farmhouse was built in the early 17th century. There are two guest bedrooms and a shared bathroom. The farm has amazing rural views and an award winning pub in walking distance.
    The farmhouse is set in the heart of the Lake District National Park with outstanding views. In the quiet village of Crosthwaite but with easy access to Windermere and Kendal. Guests will need their own transport. There is no bus service in the village.
    The farmhouse is in the village of Crosthwaite, 15 minutes drive to the market town of Kendal and 15 minutes drive to Bowness and Lake Windermere. Crosthwaite is a small quiet picturesque village with a primary school, church and an award winning pub. Sorry no shops in the village. Your own transport is essential.
  • The perfect old-fashioned British building ... just like living in a museum ... when coming to the Lake District, I recommend everyone to come ... the host cleans the house very clean and the room is large ... absolutely a great experience. (It ’s very cold in Scotland and Lake District in winter at night ... I recommend you to stay warm)

  • Brian's place is in a great location, immersed in nature, and is very cosy. Brian was really friendly and responsive and gave us tips for walks and excellent local pubs! Great stay, thanks!

  • Authentic B&B experience in 18th century house. Would recommend.

  • Brian's place is very lovely, old house yet very homy with a great view. We really loved the breakfast he served in the morning, it's more than we expected. Brian himself is very sweet and polite, thanks a lot for your great hospitality Brian!

  • I honestly cannot believe my luck finding Brian’s heaven away from home. It’s right in the heart of Lake District in such a beautiful tiny village. Brian has loads of walks that he has written out for people visiting and the room we stayed in was so cosy and clean and comfortable. He lets his guests do their things but is so helpful and kind if we need anything. I really really recommend staying here !

    Olive2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • The owner Brian couldn't have been a better host, he was helpful right from the time we made the booking. You get to stay in a fascinating old house (over 300 years old) with most of the original features. The bed was comfortable and we had lovely vies from our bedroom window. If you want to visit Windermere, it's less than 20 minutes drive away.

    John2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Brain and Fudge (house cat) were amazing hosts from the time we arrived to the point we left. Location is perfect if you are planning to go to Windermere.

    Andrew2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Sprout House. A gorgeous old home, amazingly clean, with stunning views from every window. Brian was an excellent host. He was very accommodating of our schedule and communication was super quick. Thanks for having us Brian and Fudge the cat. :)

  • Anna's place is in a great location and a cosy, clean and comfortable place to stay in Kendal and we had everything we needed. Anna was a lovely host and responded quickly. We would definitely return.

    Jennifer2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Anna and Gavin’s cottage - it’s a lovely place which is conveniently located 5 minutes walk from Kendal high street. Anna was so helpful and friendly and gave us lots of recommendations of places to eat and visit. We’d definitely come back and stay again, as it was a perfect base to explore the Lakes!

    Craig2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The property is fantastic, perfectly positioned for a great stay in Kendal. A 5 minute walk and you are in the town center which offers fantastic shopping , food and pubs. With the benefit of access to the rest of the Lake District you couldn't ask for more. Its spotlessly clean, comfy seating and bed and a great shower. Highly recommended and definitely somewhere we will use again and again.

    Mike2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage walking distance to all of Kendal. Lots of information, maps etc and kind host. Coffee, tea breakfast items were a bonus! Great town to visit.

    Patricia2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a peaceful break in Kendal.

    Robert2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Anna was a great host and the cottage was perfect. It is just as explained, small but perfect for a couple to stay in. The temperature of the cottage was perfect with easy heating adjustments. Fantastic location because within 5 minutes from walking outside the front door you are on the high street. Couldn't of asked for anything better, would highly recommend.

    Chloe2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage in a fantastic location, only a small walk from the centre. Anna was lovely and responded to questions quickly. We didn’t venture out of Kendal but Anna suggested many different places that we could have visited around the lakes. There was a map of the centre but also once’s for if you were going further afield. Only downside was how cold it was at night (even with the heating on) so I would advise wrapping up. Overall was was a fantastic stay, would definitely go back.

    Luscha2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • The little flat on the garden is very comfortable and clean.It is quiet but nice and central in a beautiful Georgian street within easy reach of all the eating places

  • A lovely retreat. local pub in walking distance with great food. The goodies are a real bonus and totally unexpected.

  • A great find, lovely welcome, comfy lounge & bed, large bathroom, & well equipped kitchen plus a starter pack of milk, bread, tea, coffee, wine, homemade biscuits & jam (and dog treats). Really nice dog friendly pub within walking distance. Couldn't fault this stay and would certainly stay again.

    Andrea2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely gorgeous annex, very spacious and amazing value for money. The coffee and tea selection was fab, and the croissants and shortbread were lovely touches not to mention delicious. The log burner also warmed us up after a long day of walking in Windermere.

    Sophie2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at Grey Mists Annex for a New Year break and we loved it again . Warm , cosy, clean , peaceful and very comfy. Also enjoyed the home -made shortbread and jam . Ideally situated for our activities in the Lake District , just a short drive to Ambleside . Hoping to come again .Thanks to Helen and Jonathon .

    Jean2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great annex, very warm, great location, welcome from host was lovely with wine, croissants & shortbread. The Black Labrador pub in Underbarrow about 4 miles away served up just about the best pub food we’ve ever had and reasonably priced too and great beer.

    Damon2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • The place was very clean and warm, you can stay there even during winter time as you will have enough logs for wood-burner. We got a lot of nice extra compliments on arrival such as croissants, small jar of jam, bottle of wine and bread. It was only 1 minor issue - not good enough wifi signal. The house is well located but only for local attractions. Helen and her husband were very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this place as good value for money for discovering south part of Lake District.

    Located in a quiet cul du sac in the historic market town of Kendal with convenient access to the M6, Lake District & Yorkshire dales. The cosy cabin suitable for a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children is a 20min walk to town centre along the scenic River Kent or 4min walk to the fantastic Romney’s pub with its fabulous food & fine ales. There is parking available & a private outside decking area. Don’t want to walk ? We are a 30sec walk to the bus stop
    Our cabin is twin skinned and fully insulated which keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. Decking area is completely secluded and overlooks a small wooded area . Fully functioning kitchen with oven, hob, microwave,kettle and toaster. Private double bedroom with small double sofa bed in the lounge. Fully fitted bathroom with shower, vanity unit and heated towel rail.
    Lovely quiet area with friendly neighbours, the fabulous Romney’s pub with amazing food and great atmosphere only a 4 minute walk away. Great base to explore northern England's greatest scenery.
  • This is an amazing space, surprised George Clarke hasn't been out to see it! The cabin was fabulously presented, lots of nice touches, it was very clean and cosy and warm on a wet March weekend. Highly recommended as a quiet spot within walking distance of Kendal town centre.

    Sarah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Just returned from a 3 night stay in this lovely, warm cabin. Welcomed by Dave who had tips on the local dog friendly pub (unfortunately didn't get chance to call in as too much to do) and local walks. Plenty of space for a couple with off road parking and close to the river for an easy, flat 15-20 minute walk into town or head downstream towards Sizergh Castle for a longer walk. The cabin was spotless, well equipped with good quality furnishings. Even included shampoo, conditioner and liquid soap as well as washing up liquid. Something few self catering properties have. Good wifi, again this is rare in the Lakes. Shame it's a little early in the year to fully enjoy the enclosed, private decking area. I bet its lovely to have tea out there in summer.

    Cottage in the Southern Lake District. Also within reach of Lancashire, the Kent Estuaryand Dales. 8km from Kendal-walking, dining out and culture! You’ll love my place because of the beautiful setting, the cosy cottage, canal walks and beautiful sunsets over the bay. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and furry friends (pets). Please note this is a double room, but have single mattress for third guest if requested! I have a collie, Jess, who is very friendly!

  • What can I say.. We had a brilliant stay at Rachel’s. The house is in a beautiful location with rolling Cumbrian countryside and ideal for getting to the lakes and dales. The house has a really homely feel and because Rachel was out a lot we often had the house to ourselves. Rachel was very kind and advised us on some good places to visit/walk. Excellent value for money and we would definitely rebook.

The cottage was clean and snug with little amenities such as tea and our names written on the chalkboard. Jayne was great with communicating directions and other tips for the area. We had a very enjoyable time!

Location was perfect for us, so much so that we would definitely like to come back and do more exploring. Jayne was very helpful, friendly and communication via messages were quick. Thanks!

    Stephanie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic little cottage. Jayne is a great host and leaves some really nice touches around the cottage. The cottage is we equipped with cooking utensils which was ideal for us as we cooked and ate in as we were with out dog. A great location to explore a variety of areas such as the Lake District, the western side of the dales and arnside. Supermarkets and pubs within driving distance but a nicr retreat away from the busyness of other areas. Would definitely stay again and Jayne was a great host. Quick communication, very accomodating and welcoming, lovely little touches and always there if you need her but allows you your own space.

    Tomas2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely stunning, cosy, little cottage. Situated off the beaten track but well located to easily explore local sights. It felt like a home from home, kitted out with all mod cons along with some sweet homely touches with a Lakeland feel. I would definitely recommend this place.

    Rock Cottage is a bijou detached two bedroom character cottage nestled in beautiful woodland, on the edge of the peaceful Kent Estuary village of Storth. Found in the Arnside Silverdale Area of Outstanding Beauty in South Lakeland. Immerse yourself in the beautiful woodlands or within a mile you can stroll to the coast. For excellent walking from the doorstep, cosy evenings in front of the fire, and within a stagger of a great pub. Lake District attractions are only 30 minutes away.
    Guests can enjoy the privacy and relaxation that comes with staying in our little chocolate box country cottage. The perfect romantic retreat or a base for exploring the beautiful outdoors, Rock Cottage is full of character, and we’re sure you’ll enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine in the private natural garden, or in front of the wood burning stove, at the end of your day. There are no street lights or traffic noise to keep you awake at night, but you will probably hear a few owl hoots! The king size bed has a super comfortable mattress, so if you plan to make an early start you may want to set an alarm. Rock Cottage is situated in the edge of woodland just outside the village of Storth. Both the beautiful coast and a great pub, The Ship Inn, are Less than half a mile away from the doorstep. The small village of Storth is situated on the tidal estuary of the River Kent and within the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Beauty on the edge of the Lake District National Park. The local area is a haven for wildlife, the National Trust stating “the mix of wildlife that you can see in Arnside and Silverdale is like no other place in the country”. The combination of different habitats; the coastal climate, woodland, limestone pavement and grassland attract many species of birds and butterflies that would not normally be seen in the same region. The area is known for its wildflowers too. There are many beautiful walks nearby suitable for those who just like a stroll to those who like to be out for hours. Beetham Fairy steps is a lovely walk from the cottage, remember to make your wish whilst there. Or follow the beautiful coastline to Arnside and savour a delicious treat from The Old Bakehouse. Arnside Knott with its stunning views across Morecombe bay with the lake district mountains behind has been attracting visitors for over 100 years. In this designated area of natural beauty there is always something to marvel at in nature. All this and within a 30 minute drive you can be exploring lake Windermere. Of course, with the quietness of the cottage, you may just decide to curl up with a great book. The choice is yours. Guest access Guests have the whole cottage to themselves. That includes the kitchen, open plan lounge dining area, two bedrooms, family bathroom, nature garden and parking. Other things to note The master bedroom is accessible via the bunk bedroom. We therefore recommend the cottage for couples and families with children who this arrangement suits. Please use the cottage like your home. Well behaved dogs accepted for a fee with the owner’s approval.
    Walks are available straight from the front door. Nesteled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty let yourself get back to nature with walks or biking straight from the cottage, or the Lakes. With Windemere just 25 minutes away it is a great place to explore the Lake district as well as Silverside and Arnside's AONB. Cumbria, England, United Kingdom Guests come to Rock Cottage to experience the beautiful outdoors. Forest and coastal walks in an Area of Outstanding Beauty with limestone pavements and rare wildlife from the doorstep, the pretty village of Arnside with possibly the best sunsets in the world just a walk or short drive away, and the main attractions of the Lake District within a thirty minute drive. You don’t need to leave the cottage to see the huge range of birdlife in the garden and surrounding woodland, and if you’re lucky you’ll spot deer browsing in the woods too. For even more wildlife, Leighton Moss RSPB wildlife reserve is very close by. There’s a great dog-friendly pub on the coast just a few minutes stroll from the cottage, and a great choice of other pubs and eateries within easy reach, most of which are also dog friendly. For practical purposes, a supermarket, petrol, and choice of take aways in the small town of Milnthorpe just ten minutes from the cottage.
  • Perfect location if your looking for somewhere quiet and peaceful. Lovely little house which was very neat and tidy. In a lovely wooded area. Perfect for a couple get away.

    Jordan2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • As soon as you step into Rock cottage you immediately feel at home. There are so many thoughtful touches around the house that makes a weekend break just that bit more special. Rob and Sam are fantastic hosts who make communication prior to and during your stay, so easy. We hope to return again soon to explore more of the beautiful surroundings.

    Rebecca2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

Rob and Sam are quick to reply and the cottage is clean and well stocked. We loved the welcome pack which had goodies for us and the dogs. We would stay again

    Fiona2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at the cottage! Fantastic location to walk directly from the cottage into the woods, fairy steps and to Beatham. Close to everything and, despite the weather, we had a fantastic time! Thanks.

  • We had a great time here at Rob and Sam’s cottage. They were exceptional at keeping in contact if you needed anything. We really felt like we were in our own place. The welcome goodie box was a really nice touch too. The place is clean, warm, and cosy, especially with the wood burner. This is a great place for families or just a couples get away weekend.

The room is really comfortable and clean, and despite being within their house, you have a sense of privacy as you`re alone on the top floor. The location turned out better than expected - less than 10min walk to the center. Would gladly come to stay again.

Breakfast was really relaxed and was a good opportunity for a chat. It's only a short walk from Mike's place , via the, "canal" to kendal Castle, which is worth a visit as the views are fantastic.

  • Total and utter heaven! Me and a friend went to The Lakes for some mega hiking in the windiest rainiest weather but Sophie’s hut kept us warm, unbelievably comfortable and all the treats upon arrival alongside the gorgeous little stove made for a magical trip! The space itself is beautifully designed with lots of storage for bags, a hot shower and all the facilities (bar an oven and a hob) that you could ever need. 10/10 from us and will be sending friends and family up there soon!

    Ocki2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic, special little place. Beautiful hut, lovely location and wonderful views. Highly recommend!

    Leonora2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wild Sheep is the most beautiful and lovingly designed shepherds hut you will ever find! It was clean, cosy and is ideally located for exploring the Lake District. Sophie is a great host, answering any questions we had and the breakfast hamper she provided on arrival was delicious! We really can’t wait to come back.

    Sarah2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Sophie is a fantastic host with the most beautiful Shepherds Hut. It’s amazing what she has done with such a small area and has come up with really great ideas to utilise all the space. It’s so cosy, especially when the wood fire is on. Not once did I feel cold or like it was too small. Sophie provides a the cutest breakfast hamper on arrival and she catered for me being vegan without any trouble which I am very grateful for! The homemade granola is delicious!! I definitely recommend staying here. Sophie went above and beyond to provide local walks, attractions, places to eat and drink etc and I really loved my stay here.

    Chloe2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This hut is truly amazing! Sophie and her family are nothing but the most amazing hosts. All the personal touches are amazing and the hut is so cosy you will just want to stay in all day with the log burning fire! I would give this more than 5 out of ten if possible! Recommend to anyone looking for a little bit of an escape and somewhere a little bit different :)

    Cara2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! 10/10 cuteness, full modern amenities and a spectacular view. This is a no brainer if you are trying to stay in and explore the Lake District.

    Nicholas2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sophie was a great host and helped us with any queries we had, the view from the accommodation is amazing and made for a great escape from reality for a few days.

    Jack2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

  • This really was a little haven. The cabin was cosy, well equipped and peaceful, it was a perfect way to break up the drive from Dorset to Glasgow and back. It has everything you would need, a very comfortable bed, fantastic shower and great views. The advice on places to visit was really helpful too, I recommend eating at the Strickland Arms - the fish and chips was excellent and the pub had a lovely friendly atmosphere. All in all a great little stay. Would love to come back and explore the area some more.

    Witherslack is a quiet rural farming village. It is a popular base for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. It is about a 15 minute walk to our local pub the Derby Arms which serves excellent meals and has a wide choice of beers. If you wish to travel a little further, there are a variety of pubs which serve good food, and at least five of them only take between 7 & 10 minutes by car and they are all definitely worth a visit. Well known Whitbarrow Scar is the backdrop to Landour and is just 10 minutes walk away. The scar is designated a biological site of special interest and a ' national nature reserve' due to its supporting some of the best European examples of natural limestone habitats. It also features in 'The Outlying Fells of Lakeland' by Alfred Wainwright. He describes it as "the most beautiful walk in this book, beautiful it is every stage of the way.... all is fair to the eye on Whitbarrow". There are many other public footpaths starting in Witherslack, two of which start within 50 yards of this property. One of these takes you up Yewbarrow Fell and the other towards Beck Head and Whitbarrow Scar. If you wish to venture further afield Lake Windermere is only a twenty minute drive away or, for the more energetic, it's about a two hour walk across the fells. The popular village of Cartmel is also about a twenty minute drive away and is well known for its 12th century medieval Priory, the racecourse and its culinary delights i.e. the L'Enclume restaurant which was hailed best in the U.K. by the 2014 Good Food Guide Other places nearby to visit are Levens Hall renowned for its topiary gardens, Sizergh Castle, Holker Hall, Fell Foot on Lake Windermere and Grange-over-Sands where you can catch a train over the viaduct across Morecambe Bay to Arnside. For those that enjoy shopping the popular market town of Kendal is twenty minutes away. Then there is all of the Lake District within your reach by car or, if you enjoy pedalling up hills, by bike!
  • Laraine and Bill’s studio is fabulous! It has such a cosy, comfortable feel and is perfectly located for those who want to go exploring. It is a short 20 minute drive away from many villages, such as Bowness-on-Windermere, Windermere and Cartmel Fell, so there is plenty to do and see. Laraine and Bill were also very friendly hosts - the continental breakfast they provided was lovely and had a ‘special touch’. Would highly recommend this place to anyone interested in visiting The Lakes.

    Chloe2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome, quiet spot close to the lake - wonderful base for exploring. Would love to stay again next time we are on the area! Thanks for having us Laraine & Bill!

    Jen2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • A warm and cosy studio in the wilderness with breathtaking views and a hearty breakfast. It's the perfect recipe for a break from our routines.

  • This was our first Air BnB experience as a couple. Our weekend in the Lakes was made all the more special by this excellent accommodation. Laraine and Bill are perfect hosts. They helped us after we got a bit lost en route, provided breakfasts in the morning and our own clean space with lovely facilities. We would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

  • really good! There is a mart in front of it and the bus stop is near! The neighborhood was so pretty and the people were nice. The house was full of sense. I really recommend! The next time you come to Kendall, I'll be staying here again !!

  • Once again Marina's place is wonderful. It has such a nice feel to it - quirky, welcoming, calm, spacious, yet cosy. It's our favourite Airbnb. Thank you for having us again, hope the eggs and jam went down we, and have a great 2020!

    Helen2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little cottage right in the centre of town that comes with a private parking space (may be tight if you have a large car). We stayed here while attending an event at the Brewery Arts Centre and was only a 5 minute walk away. Check in was easy with the keys being in a lock box. The cottage itself has everything you would need for a comfortable stay. On a very cold night the cottage was lovely and warm. Set over 3 floors with the bedroom at the top of the house, the decor was lovely and everywhere was clean and tidy. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. A great little find.

  • We arrived later than planned so it was dark when we arrived and we weren’t sure which way to go so called Victor . Alison came and showed us around. The place was nice, clean and cosy. The supermarkets were 10-15 min drive we visited the Lakes during our stay (20 min drive).. There was a cooker, fridge, microwave and everything needed to cook for 5 people . There was also tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits as well as information about the local activities left for us in the kitchen table. Very happy with the service, facilities and I would highly recommend.

  • A stunning location, a cosy pod in the great outdoors. Brilliant layout and everything you need for a glamping experience. Would thoroughly recommend for families and those looking for something a bit different.

    Jemma2020-03-07T00:00:00Z

    Maral2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We were a party of 6 lasses (age 30-40) looking for local walks followed by drinks with food..... and We found this perfect place 💕 Stayed two nights. The pod was warm and cosy when we arrived. Check in was simple. We had three car parking spaces so we could quickly unload our gear. The pod was clean and welcoming with everything we needed. We soon had the kettle on enjoying complimentary biscuits, tea and coffee. The guest book gave helpful suggestions for things to do and places to go, whatever your preference: Church, walks, pubs, pod, heritage sites, shops-I could go on. There are cooking facilities and a microwave, a good fridge with small freezer section and full sink and drainer. Everything was clean, you can see the place is well cared for. We opted for the local pub which did excellent quality food, including vegetarian. We retired for the evening and took advantage of the great heating system, cranking it up so we were lovely and warm. The double glazed windows kept the wind out. There was a double bed, futon couch which turned into a double bed and then two singles. Linen was fresh and quilts were new. We enjoyed a walk the following day. There are national trust walking routes, short and long. The local area is peaceful with awesome views. We noticed other people cycling and running in the area and the locals were friendly so no fear of getting lost without directions. Back in the pod, we had a large 6 seater dining table to use. There were plenty plates and bowls with cutlery. The bathroom was clean and equipped with fresh towels, soap and loo rolls. We really enjoyed the lovely hot shower. We all had good phone signal and when I needed a quick call to the host, they answered the phone straight away. He was very helpful and friendly. We took a taxi to Kendal which was £14 but worth it so we had the freedom of going for drinks after shopping. Check out was an easy as check in. The only bad bit was that we wished we’d booked for longer. We had such fun and it was perfect. Thanks for having us 👌

    Catherine2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely experience staying in our own log cabin in the woods. My daughter and her friends loved their sleepover. We loved exploring the surrounding countryside and found a lovely pub for a drink. Alison and Victor offered to light us a fire in the fire pit which would have been great but unfortunately it was raining and very windy! The cabin was really warm and cosy with everything we needed. There is no TV or WIFI, which I think is a good thing and not a complaint, but if going with young children, just be prepared with some board games or similar to keep them entertained or download some programmes if they need to watch something before bed. We hope to return, perhaps in the summer so we can enjoy the fire pit! Thank you

    Kirsty2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful stay for 6 adults, there was enough space for everyone to sleep comfortably. The pod was spotless and well equipped. Would definitely recommend this stay to a friend or anyone who’s looking for a night or two away to relax.

    Anna2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • A clean & well furnished pod ideally located on the edge of the lakes. Great for young family.

  • A lovely bolthole on the outskirts of Kendal, this clean and cosy space is ideal to come back to after exploring the Lake District. It had everything we needed and our helpful host Victoria was on hand whenever we needed her. The breakfast basket was ideal for stocking up our bags on early starts, and the fact we had our own key and entrance really gave it that 'entire place' appeal that we normally go for. Highly recommended!

    Green Hollow is our lovely detached house located in the village of Levens. Levens is in the heart of South Lakeland - often mentioned in The Sunday Times 'best places to live' articles. Levens is set on the edge of The Lake District with Greenhollow enjoying uninterrupted views across the valley taking in the the Kent Estuary to the South, The Langdale Pikes towards the West and the Lake District fells in the Northern Panorama. The house is located only 10 minutes from the M6 Junction 36.
    Greenhollow has everything ready for your holiday in the Lakes. The house is warm, spacious and I pride myself on it being spotlessly clean. It is very well equipped with all bedding and towels provided. There is plenty of tea and coffee and milk in the fridge ready for your arrival! Downstairs ~There is a newly fitted kitchen with oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer, breakfast bar and coffee pod machine. The adjacent dining room seats 6 people and a high chair is available if required. My favourite room is the the lounge with breathtaking spectacular westerly views across the Lake District. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms - the master has a kingsize bed and three windows all with superb views. The second bedroom has a double bed with fitted wardrobes and the third has two single beds and fitted wardrobes. There is also an additional office space with desk. The new bathroom has a toilet, sink, bath with overhead shower and bathroom light with shaver socket. There is an additional single toilet and wash basin upstairs. Outside there is a lovely patio with dining table and separate casual seating area. There is an additional upper garden/lawn and a path which leads to a lower lawn area with river frontage. There is a garage available for you to store your bikes etc if required. The house has a private drive with plenty of parking.
    Levens is a village with about 1000 residents. We have a lovely pub, The Hare and Hounds (5 stars on Trip Advisor!), about a 4 minute walk from our door. There are also several other country pubs located in every other direction. The village itself has two pay and play tennis courts, a children's play park, one free enclosed five a side pitch and grass football pitch. Our village shop is a delight, selling local breads, pasties and cakes along with local meats and dairy products. We are a walk or short drive from the National Trust sites at Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall along with the massively popular Sizergh Barn Shop. Our nearest larger town is the market town of Kendal, often voted one of the best places to live in the UK. Here you will find plenty of individual shops from crafts to fashion and food. The Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal, is renowed for its arts films and own productions - and we play host to several creative arts festivals every year. Windermere and the Lakes are only a 20 minute drive away. However the boundary of our stream is the boundary of the Lake District so you are really right on the doorstep of The Lakes. The house is located only 10 minutes from the M6 Junction 36 and has fantastic access to The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Lancashire.

Everyone was so friendly and Dawn especially went out of her way to be helpful to us. The place itself was a lot bigger than I thought it would be and was very nicely decorated. All in all, I highly recommend staying at Dawn's - it was a nice much-needed break.

    Emma2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

  • My family and I very much enjoyed our stay in this house. It was a great location with a local pub and fantastic views. We walked to the nearby castle and enjoyed a few sunsets from the back garden. The house itself was fresh and clean and well equipped. Dawn was a great host and, even though we arrived late in the evening, met us at check in to give us the keys and show us the house.

  • Iain's home is called Rose Cottage and is at Bridgsteer which is a few miles away from Kendal. The drive to Rose Cottage is beautiful. The room we stayed is on the first floor of Rose Cottage. The ground floor of the cottage has retained it's 17th century charm and the first floor is completely renovated and has all modern amenities.

    My place is close to J36 M6, Oxenholme Station, Kendal town centre, The Lake District, Yorkshire, Lancashire and Scotland, bus stop on main route to town right outside house and a short distance from Oxenholme train station. Post Office, sports centre, hospital and supermarket all within a few minutes walk. You’ll love my place because of its location, beautiful garden to sit in and it is a home from home.. My place is good for solo adventurers and business travellers.

    There is a Post Office at one end of the street and a fantastic fish and chip shop at the other. A lesiure centre at top of the road. The Brewery and centre of town is a short walk away.
  • Ruth is a very hospitable and welcoming host. I appreciated the arrival cup of tea after a long day. The room was nice, warm and comfortable, providing a good night’s sleep. Great filter coffee and breakfast provided in the morning. Would happily recommend.

  • Cosy and friendly place to stay in Kendal, convenient for Oxenholme station on the West Coast mainline (especially as Ruth was kind enough to give me a lift to the station on the morning of my departure). This was a brief working visit for me, so I didn't have time to explore the surrounding countryside; but if I had done, I'm sure Ruth's local knowledge and the range of maps and guides that she provides in the room would have been a great help. Ruth is a generous and warm host and it was a pleasure to stay with her.
