Another wonderful stay at this ideally situated, spacious and comfortable house just north of Kendal, one of our favourite places to stay in Cumbria. Such a peaceful location, with fields (and lambs) all around, and easy access to fantastic walking in the Lake District, Howgills, Yorkshire Dales and all around Morecambe Bay. Kendal is a friendly town, with a good selection of shops and range of supermarkets as well as individual shops. The garden was looking lovely with spring blossom and flowers. We were delighted with the newly installed door out on to steps from the first-floor bedroom. Can't wait to return to this very special place.

A really relaxing and enjoyable holiday. The Granary is one of our very favourite cottages in this area. Set well off the main road in lovely rolling fields, we always enjoy visits to this welcoming and spacious house, which is so quiet and relaxing - hardly a sound from the main road, as the house is well off the road down a track. And yet Kendal with its great selection of shops is just down the road. Lovely to watch the sheep and lambs playing in the surrounding fields during our May stay. The views from the bedrooms are stunning - including over towards the Howgill Fells in the East The first-floor bathroom was completely renovated quite recently, and new windows and patio doors had been installed very recently. It always feels like coming home when we stay at The Granary.

The photographs are deceptive - the property is tired and in need of some maintenance, particularly the rotting patio doors, for which there was no key to open onto the terrace.. Despite having to check in later and out earlier, supposedly because of extra cleaning required for COVID-19, the cleanliness of the place left a lot to be desired, an example being the kitchen table which was sticky and grimy. As for the welcome hamper raved about in other reviews - a slab of Kendal Mint Cake and an out-of-date bottle of beer do not constitute a hamper, let alone a welcome.

We could not travel anywhere during our stay due to COVID-19.. We realised this might happen so bought all our food with us so not to deplete the local supply despite all this we had a wonderful relaxing time. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. We would highly recommend it. Thankyou

Beautifully decorated cottage.. Very comfortable and good location. Lack of space for car parking. Cottage sleeps up to 7, so we had 3 cars. Not enough space to park.

Lovely, cosy cottage and great location.. Short drive away from stunning walks around Windermere and easy reach from Ullswater. Kendal is on your doorstep for rainy day activities. Would definitely return

As a family of four generations this cottage was in an ideal location providing a rural tranquility with close accessibility to amenities in the town.. We all had a wonderful holiday.

Another excellent and thoroughly enjoyable stay at The Granary, one of our favourite houses/cottages in the south Lakeland area - and beyond! The 3-storey house is well off the main road in lovely rolling fields, and the accommodation is spacious, light and well-heated. Always a generous welcome pack including nuts, homemade preserve, and Kendal mint cake to greet us in the kitchen. Wonderfully quiet, with hardly a sound from the main road, as the house is well off the road down a track.The first-floor bathroom was completely renovated last year, and the owners have done an excellent job. I think the kitchen may be the next room on the list for renovation. We look forward to a return to this lovely, welcoming home.

Really nice place to stay and located literally within a few miles of Lake Windermere and many other attractions.. Extremely helpful guides and beautiful surroundings. Nice neighbours too. Thanks for the opportunity to stay there. Sam

Enjoyed a lovely two night stay at The Granary to celebrate a friend's birthday.. It's in a beautiful place and a great location to be based from, we visited nearby Ambleside and Bowness on Windermere. The only thing I would say is that although the house can sleep 7 it is really only designed for 6. It was okay for us as we were only there for a couple of days, but it would have been a bit cosy with 7 adults for a whole week. The kitchen is really well stocked and the living room comes with great TV/ entertainment set up. If you're visiting in winter like us, pack plenty of jumpers!

Property in great location for touring south Cumbria.. We were a party of five adults and one baby. It was well presented and had all amenties needed for our stay. Property had three good size double bedrooms. Only downside was that third double bedroom had no wardrobe space. Would recommend this property as good value for money.

The house was brilliant.. As we wanted secluded and quiet. Garden was tiny but enough to do the grilling. We spent a great week. Thank you. The house had everything we needed.

Set in lovely farmland, we simply loved our stay at the Granary. On arrival we found a welcome pack of wine, home made jam & Kendal mint cake - a lovely touch! Quiet, secluded and yet very easy acess as it is fairly close to a main road into Kendal.

The house was well positioned just on the edge of Kendal.. It had a fabulous rural outlook. Spacious and well proportioned it was bigger enough for a large family. The owners clearly enjoy managing the property and have listened to feedback. The cold weather we had was negated by the warmth of the property. Great place and well with it. It only lacked a real fire or log burner then it would have been perfect.

This was our third stay in the Granary, and again we had a wonderful holiday in such a peaceful location, with easy access to the Lake District, Morecambe Bay, the Howgills and also the Yorkshire Dales, and of course Kendal town.. The cottage feels like a real family home, and is very well equipped, plus always a welcoming selection of goodies in the kitchen! The new bathroom on the first floor is brilliant. As it was a partly working holiday for us, the wifi was essential. With new lambs in the surrounding fields, and great views over toward the Howgills from the bedrooms, all in all, this was a really lovely holiday.

Had a great time, good location for access to the lakes, cottage was great but maybe needs a bit more storage space..

This cottage is superb.. Beautifully and confortably decorated. We absolutely loved our stay so much we booked to return before we left.

This is an amazing cottage: clean, comfortable, cosy, yet spacious enough for 4 adults & 2 young children.. There were thoughtful little touches (such as a pot of home-made jam, a bottle of wine and some Kendal Mint Cake) left for us in the kitchen, which made us feel very welcome, and pampered, and despite being close enough to a main road into Kendal, it was a very quiet and felt private & secluded. The photos on the website do not do this cottage justice! The decor was lovely, and on a personal note, the selection of DVDs for use by guests were just spot on to my taste! The sound system & TV were great, and the little sheep stools were very cute, and a big hit with my niece and my little nephew. The Nespresso machine & capsules were also a massive hit with me, as a mega coffee fiend. A big thank you to the owners - we will definitely be booking out 5 the Granary for future holidays to the Lakes - and will be spreading the word with our friends and family.

Very well-equipped and comfortable cottage, with contemporary decoration. We really enjoyed our week in beautiful Cumbria. We've stayed in many cottages over the years in Cumbria and throughout the North and this ranks as one of the best.
