Make a holiday cottage in Kendal your home away from home

The town of Kendal, which sits on the beautiful banks of the River Kent, is one of the main tourist centres in the South Lake District of Cumbria. The town has an extremely rich trade history, with industries producing snuff, tobacco, coffee and Kendal Mint Cake still in existence. The main lure of Kendal holiday cottages, however, is certainly the surrounding Lake District countryside: it provides holidaymakers with a multitude of opportunities to hike, bike and explore. If hoping to get back to nature while away, then a Kendal holiday cottage is surely the perfect solution. That said, the town itself provides travellers with everything from cultural attractions to great historical sites, and they’re all on the doorstep of Kendal holiday homes. With well-appointed accommodation in both the town and countryside, HomeAway will have the ideal holiday home.

Things to do

-Outdoor Pursuits: Hiking is one of the most popular outdoor activities in the Lake District, and the area around Kendal is certainly no exception, with a magnitude of different walking trails on offer. Amateur trekkers may enjoy the four-kilometre Sizergh Castle walk or the Scout Scar trail. Seasoned hikers may prefer to test their mettle on the 11.4-kilometre Whitbarrow Fell track, which begins roughly 16 kilometres from Kendal and summits on Whitbarrow Hill.

-Historical Attractions: The Sizergh Castle and Garden, located approximately seven kilometres south of Kendal, comprises a stunning old medieval castle and a beautifully tended allotment, complete with a limestone rock garden and lake. The castle is the perfect place for a day out in close proximity to Kendal holiday cottages, as visitors can spend hours marvelling at the amazing art on display, or wandering around the 647-hectare estate.

-Churches: The Kendal Parish Church, which dates back to the early 13th century, is a breathtaking listed building. The structure’s amazing stained-glass windows, interesting 17th-century organs, and intricate interior all combine to make the church a must-see.

-Museums: The various museums and galleries that dot the region are both abundant and of a very high quality, with establishments such as the Kendal Museum, Museum of Lakeland Life and Abbot Hall Art Gallery to visit. If looking for a great family location, however, consider the Dove Cottage and Wordsworth Museum in Grasmere or the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes: they offer superb hands-on exhibits for children.

-Entertainment: The Kendal Mountain Film Festival, which takes place in the third week of November, is a real must for winter holiday makers, with a magnitude of amazing mountain based films on display. If interested in spelunking (see for yourself!), mountaineering, climbing or extreme sports, guests may like to organise a Kendal holiday home for the November and settle in to watch all of the action on the big screen.

Weather in Kendal

Kendal generally experiences warm summers and very chilly winters, which makes the town a great year-round holiday destination for those who love the changing of the seasons. The summer months are certainly better suited to outdoor pursuits, of course, but renting a cosy holiday cottage in Kendal during winter is magical, too.

Travel to Kendal

Kendal is extremely easy to reach as the town is frequented by regular rail and bus services from most major centres. The other option of course is to utilise a hire car or personal vehicle, also giving visitors ease of transportation for the duration of the holiday.

Perfect!

5 of 5
Great little get away Perfect location if you want privacy and chill time. You’re surrounded by nothing, so peaceful. The cottage is beautiful quaint but modern all fixtures and fittings are like new. The owner was brilliant Very friendly and had great communication. We were received the keys as soon as we arrived and treated to a lovely welcome gesture of prosecco and chocolate. He gave us a little info on pubs and attractions locally, even told us where to head to for better weather. The hot tub, well, clean very private with great extras like lighting and music. If you want a few days away then this is the place for you. Clean beautiful picturesque with a welcoming host. 5/5 we definitely recommend

Charming cottage

5 of 5
Clean comfortable much bigger than it looks from the outside. Very well equipped kitchen and cosy seating area good beds Not being very technical or a ten year old had a bit of bother trying to get TV to work managed eventually I’m sure the fault was ours not the TV Plenty of books to read and DVDs once we sorted TV out.owners are lovely live on site very helpful but not intrusive in any way
