Caroline purchased Drysalters apartment as a rental business in 2009. After living in Kendal for most of my life I wanted other people to enjoy this beautiful historic market town as we have done over the years.

Purely it's fantastic location!!
The lovely views from the property and the easy access to everywhere together with the allocated private parking.
The property is situated in a conservation area of Kendal. Close enough for all local amenities and a 5-10 minute stroll into town. Located within a private cul-de-sac within a quiet area but with several amenites just around the corner.
Location and easy access to all areas of 'The Lakes'.

Owner organises all aspects from initial booking, meeting guests upon arrival/departure. I personally look after the property and do not use other agents therefore ensuring that everything is properly organised and the cleaning is all done by myself ensuring a high standard of cleanliness.
The owner lives within close proximity and is therefore available to deal with any queries that should arise during a guests stay.
This apartment was so clean and luxurious. Very much looking forward to staying again in the future.
This accommodation is absolutely first class. It is so well maintained that it looks brand new and the quality of the finishing and furnishings are exceedingly high in our opinion. The owner Caroline gave us a brilliant welcome and we would have to say her customer care is probably amongst the best we have come across, she even phoned the next day to make sure everything was to our liking and just to check if she could help us with anything. We found it an excellent base for touring the Lakes and would not hesitate to recommend this property to our friends and family. We found good restaurants and pubs only a short distance from the flat. The flat is in a very quiet and well presented area. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the area. I’m confident that Caroline’s focus to detail will ensure this property will remain to be well maintained and kept to the current high standard.
Fantastic New Year break in Kendal. Brilliant apartment catering for all our needs and a superb location for enjoying the Lakes.
Thank you Caroline, once again. This is the second time we have been, and were welcomed back like long lost friends. The apartment is beautiful, with everything you could wish for or need. Had a great week and cant wait to return next year. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending it
Had a wonderful in this beautiful flat. It is kept to a very high standard with everything you could possibly require being supplied. It's in a wonderful location so you can easily walk into Kendal to shop or for a meal out but it is
also close to the main roads into the national park and the lakes.
Caroline is a wonderful hostess and nothing is too much trouble for her.
I had a lovely holiday with my parents. The apartment has everything you could need. The attention to detail was second to none. Caroline was the perfect host. Clean, close to the town, gateway to the Lakes, well stocked, local pub and peaceful location. I would love to go back.
Thank you Caroline. You should be proud of this little gem.
