Kendal and Lakes Gateway

Kendal is a south Lakeland town located on the River Kent; popular with holidaymakers and on the edge of the Lake District National Park, conveniently positioned for exploring the south and central Lake District, being only a short drive from Windermere and the Lakes hot spots as well as beautiful south east Cumbria and the peninsula to the south.

There’s much more to Kendal than Kendal mint cake. Most of the buildings here are constructed of local grey limestone; Kendal Parish Church is particularly beautiful and worth a visit. Kendal Museum is one of the oldest museums in the country. It includes lots about the local history of the area, cultural, geological, and archaeological exhibits and has displays on Ancient Egypt and Roman Britain.

Other attractions include Abbot Hall Art Gallery, the Museum of Lakeland Life in the stables of Abbot Hall, the remains of Castle Howe, Kendal’s first castle and Kendal Castle and Friends Meeting House, which houses the Quaker Tapestry. The Brewery Arts Centre hosts regular theatre, dance and music events, exhibitions, workshops, dance and social activities.

Kendal has an excellent selection of small boutiques and independent shops. Walking and hiking is popular here, and The Scout Scar is a famous hike that climbs the hills to the east of the town.

Close by the Lake District National Park is popular with those who love the great outdoors and naturally has plenty of water-based activities on the many lakes and tarns, as well as scenic walks and excellent cycling trails.

Windermere, Coniston, Ambleside and Keswick are among the towns and villages worth a visit, as well as short trips south and east to the Cartmel Peninsula and coast. Closer by discover the multitude of pretty villages dotted around this scenic part of Cumbria.

There is a wonderful range of holiday cottages in Kendal and area. Book one today and enjoy all that the town, and the adjoining Lake District National Park, has to offer.
