This quality mews style property on the fringe of the Auld Grey town of Kendal is reputed to have once stabled the race horse Red Rum, and having undergone a major transformation from its former equestrian life, is now a champion in self catering terms! Kendal, a medieval market town with cobbled streets and riverside walks and is a super base from where to explore Kirkby Lonsdale and the Dales as well as the Lake District, both being within a 15-minute drive. The Old Woodyard also benefits from easy access to the surrounding fells (5-minute walk) and 10 minutes walk to the town centre. The property offers superb facilities for couples or small families, the open plan living accommodation offering a rather social atmosphere, perfect for relaxing evenings round the dining table or in front of the fireplace. Exposed beams serve as a reminder to the age of this old building but also add character. The enclosed patio area is just the spot for an aperitif before dinner in one of the many great restaurants that Kendal has to offer. Beach 14 miles. Shop 220 yards, pub 330 yards and restaurant 400 yards.

We enjoyed staying in the old woodyard a few issues we found the lining wasn't 100 % cotton and it wasn't clean the main bedroom have a strong smell of must especially the wardrobe can't use it disappointed to buy cleaning product to keep the place clean it wasn't any left I think should be supplied by the owner hope my comments help improving the cottage in the future

Absolutely lovely property, very clean and comfortable, one of the nicest we’ve stayed in, high quality furniture and soft furnishings, much larger than it looked on the photos, and a lovely homely feel to it (something sadly lacking in many holiday cottages). Great location only 5-10 min walk into the centre of Kendal but lovely and quiet spot. My only minor notes for improvement would be to leave a few essentials like a bowl of sugar for drinks and a salt and pepper pot! The kitchen has everything else. A little welcome pack would really upgrade it to luxury status, and if I was to stay in summer, some blackout blinds or curtains in the bedrooms would be needed to avoid early morning waking from the light, as the Venetian blinds don’t block light well. Overall a beautiful place to stay and would come back (if the price goes back to normal! Seems to have really hiked up since we booked). Thank you for a lovely stay, and we had excellent weather!
