Stay in Kendal and explore the beautiful Lake District
Set in the stunning South Lakes countryside, Kendal is the perfect base for exploring the famous fells and wonderful natural attractions of the Lake District. A bed and breakfast in Kendal will see you situated just a short drive from the M6 motorway and within easy reach of train links to Lancaster in the South and Penrith near Ullswater to the North. There is a fine choice of traditional stone built B&Bs in the town centre or head a couple of miles out into the countryside for more rural bed and breakfast in a peaceful Lakeland setting. Kendal is also set just a short drive west of the famous shores of Windermere or head east to explore the beautiful rugged scenery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There is a choice of B&B accommodation in Kendal to suit all budgets and some can provide extras for romantic breaks including flowers, champagne, theatre tickets or chocolates on request. With so much countryside to enjoy in the surrounding area, it would be a shame to leave the family dog behind and several B&Bs in Kendal will accept pets by prior arrangement.
Family breaks to Kendal
Kendal’s excellent central location and transport links make it the ideal base for families visiting the Lake District and many B&Bs we feature offer family rooms, cots, high chairs, parking and Wi-Fi service. Packed lunches can often be provided for days out and some B&Bs can provide bike storage facilities which are ideal if you are planning to explore one of the many nearby cycle routes on your family break. Kendal is also home to a number of family friendly attractions for you to visit including the Lakeland Climbing Centre – home to the tallest climbing wall in the country, the Museum of Lakeland Life or take in the views from 12th Century Kendal Castle. A family friendly Kendal B&B is also ideal for visiting further afield attractions including The World of Beatrix Potter at nearby Windermere or the outdoor high ropes course at Go Ape, Grizedale Forest which can be found just over the other side of the lake from Kendal.
