Town: The historic Lakeland town of Kendal has a fine reputation for shopping and is situated on the banks of the River Kent. Known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes, its old cobbled lanes and byways split off the attractive main street, whilst the stone ruins of 12th Century Kendal Castle dominates the town's skyline. The Abbot Hall Art Gallery is well worth visiting with a regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney in addition to works by both Turner and Ruskin. Other exhibitions take place throughout the year and are made possible by the gallery's links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall - with its superb Topiary Garden - are within easy driving distance, as are the unique limestone escarpments which offer stunning views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally located for those looking to explore the South Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.

On arrival a warm welcome awaits you from the cottage owners who also run the nearby Heaves hotel.They were very friendly, helpful and obliging and the small, thoughtful touches such as a bowl of fruit and a small vase of flowers in the cottage on arrival was much appreciated.
The cottage was of a high standard, very comfortable and well equipped.We enjoyed taking many breakfasts in the sunshine in the small equipped private garden attached to the cottage which is set amid peaceful rural surroundings. Should you fancy a change from cooking, the hotel serves excellent food at very reasonable prices.
The cottage is only a few minutes drive from the attractive market town of Kendal, the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Near at hand is Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall which are wonderful places especially if you enjoy visiting beautiful houses and gardens.
All in all this is a lovely, peaceful cottage of a high standard and we highly recommend it.
Just north of Bristol

Grooms Cottage: - A lovely place to stay. The staff at the hotel were very kind. Rooms and facilities very clean. It felt homely from the start of our holiday.
The local shops and amenities are very good with locally produced food.
I would recommend this cottage for a holiday, not only for the peace and quiet but the views were beautiful.
Would I go back? ----------- YES
Very highly recommended

Very nicely equipped flat. Very well-maintained, good location close enough to Kendal/other Lakes towns to go there easily but nice and quiet if you want total seclusion. Highly recommended.
Lovely little place in a great location for exploring
