This property is an architect-designed terraced cottage just a few minutes walk from the centre of Kendal and sleeps two people. This charming terrace cottage has been beautifully renovated to an architecturally designed plan and offers delightfully different accommodation. It has an “upside-down” layout with the stylish open plan living area on the first floor comprising a contemporary dining and sitting area with a well equipped kitchen, and the ground floor houses the comfortable bedroom and luxurious wet room. Parking is a minute’s walk away (with a free 24 hour parking permit). The shops, restaurants and pubs are just... a short two minute walk away and there are also pleasant riverside walks which are easily accessible. With the marvellous scenery on offer in this wonderful area this cottage makes a fabulous romantic retreat for two people any time of year.

One parking space in nearby yard (1 min walk) with free 24 hour parking permit. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shops and pub 2 mins walk.
Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
Town: The historic Lakeland town of Kendal sits on the banks of the River Kent, the 12th Century ruins of Kendal Castle look out over the town from its lofty hillside perch. Kendal has many visitor attractions including The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, which has a regular collection of portraits by local artist George Romney, and works by Ruskin and Turner. There are many fine eateries and opportunities for shopping within the town, whilst the surrounding area is a paradise for walkers and cyclists and offers a host of other outdoor pursuits. The countryside is a spectacular setting for historic properties such as Sizergh Castle and the Topiary Garden at nearby Levens Hall are most impressive. This area is a superb base for visiting this beautiful part of Britain.

I have already sent in a review for Wood Cottage 4 weeks after we returned. The only problem we had was my wife has difficulty with stairs. As there was no rail to hold on to this was quite difficult for her. I feel this should be mentioned in case visitors also have a problem with stairs. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.

The cottage was very comfortable. The little extras ie flowers, wine, bread, milk etc provided by the owners made it even more welcoming. We had a very enjoyable week despite the ever changing weather. We would go again.
