Self-catering holiday accommodation in Kendal
Kendal is one of the larger towns in the Lake District, although the town centre actually falls just outside of the National Park boundaries. For panoramic views of the town walk up to Kendal Castle, one of the highest points around. The ruins of the castle are also filled with history, so you can learn about its 12th century origins. For more you can also head to Kendal Museum where there is a full reconstruction of the castle.
Kendal is home to the Quaker Tapestry, a creation of more than 4,000 people in 15 countries across the world, which shows more than 300 years of history. For art lovers there is also Abbot Hall Art Gallery, and historians will love the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology.
A stay in one of our Kendal cottages will set you up nicely to explore both the North Lakes and the South Lakes of the Lake District as well as the rest of Cumbria, and with easy transport links to the rest of the country you’ll find getting in and out of the town a breeze.
Our guide to Kendal offers even more ideas on how to spend your time in the town during your stay.
