Pure Perfection!

This is the absolutely delightful Damson Dene hotel. As far as Kendal accommodation goes; this gorgeous guesthouse sure is a corker! There is an extra-special deal on at the moment which you simply must have to take advantage of as it is too good to miss out on. For a one-night stay with dinner included it will only cost you a paltry £119 per night; providing you choose to visit before the 13th February. 2 nights will set you back a reasonable £149 whilst a 3 night sojourn is priced at less than 200 pounds. What a bargain!

This Kendal B&B is tucked away in the beautiful Lyth Valley, amongst the quaint, tranquil surroundings of the Lake District. The heart of the Lakes is one of the most stunning areas in the UK and welcomes scores of tourists from around the globe every season. In fact; it changes completely depending on when you choose to take a jaunt up to the Cumbrian countryside. For example; if you decide to make a trip in the winter then there are hundreds of quaint little traditional taverns with roaring log fires for when you want to warm your tootsies after a long day of walking with your faithful hound. Dog-friendly pubs are part and parcel of Lake District life and the Damson Dene is one of the many Kendal bed and breakfast establishments that will allow your pooch to kip in your room with all of their home comforts around them for a small surcharge. In this instance all you have to stump up is a mere £5 per night and let the master of the house find a special place to snooze after they have been exploring for hours. 

Romantic Kendal B&B retreats which also cater for families and large groups are rather rare; but this stunning hotel manages to seamlessly cater for any type of valued guest. The Lake District Tourist Guide strongly advises you to make a booking ASAP as rooms are filling up fast. A bog standard Kendal B&B is not going to impress a discerning visitor in any way, shape or form so therefore Kendal accommodation needs to offer something a little bit more special. As well as this delightful guesthouse there are many other bed and breakfast Kendal establishments which will impress even the pickiest critic as they are perfect in every way.

Doggie-Friendly Delights

If you plan a romantic week away then it is strictly a couples-only affair. However, a family break means that everyone has to be included in the mix; including beloved pets. The neighbours can look after your cats when you leave your home for a couple of days as they are independent creatures and do not rely on their owners for companionship. Felines perceive humans as indispensable beings. Whoever feeds them will get their undivided attention; and they can change their allegiances in a split second. However, dogs are a completely different story altogether.

They have to be constantly entertained and taken for walks around the park and are loyal and faithful animals. You can train canines and partake in obedience classes so they are disciplined and well-behaved. This is why the beautiful Cherry Garth Hotel is one of the most popular B&B’s in Ambleside due to its doggy-friendly facilities. With a total of 12 luxury guest rooms and stunning views; B&B’s in Ambleside rarely are as impressive as this. Most people look for bed and breakfast Ambleside establishments which are friendly, homely and welcoming and accommodation in Ambleside has to cater for all specific requirements and personal preferences; including those of your four-legged friend.

Four poster, deluxe and family-size rooms are all available at this quaint little guesthouse. Bed and breakfast Ambleside comes included with a hearty Full English, or continental spread, which will set you up nicely for the rigours of the day. Attractive sitting areas, an ornamental pond and beautiful, well-kept gardens mean that this particular hotel has been regarded as one of the finest places to stay in should you require accommodation in Ambleside which is of the highest standard.

A Lovely Little Lodge in the Lakes

Picture the scene; you are relaxing after a long day’s walking in the Lake District and decide to partake in another glass of bubbly as it would be rude not to! You are safely ensconced in one of the most comfortable, spacious and roomy lodges in the Lake District and feel completely at home. With plush surroundings and delightful d├ęcor; luxury lodges in the Lake District are proving to be extremely popular amongst families, couples and groups of friends all looking for a relaxing retreat. It is everyone’s dream to get away from it all and unwind as the stresses and strains of your day-to-day routine can all get a little too much sometimes. You have to take some time out for yourself and look after number one. A lot of ladies love the luxury of a spa, whilst their partners love a few rounds on the golf course; not forgetting the all-important 19th hole, of course! Others prefer complete peace and solitude and want to watch the world go by with a good book and a cup of tea.

It all depends on personal preferences of course; but what the Lake District Tourist Guide does know for sure is that holidays in the Lake District create long-lasting, unforgettable memories which will be treasured forever. Family-friendly accommodation in Windermere is ideal for little ones and elderly people alike as all ages will enjoy getting a bit of fresh air and escaping to the countryside for a week. Town centres are filled with busy commuters and hordes of shoppers and you have to fight your way through the crowds to board an overly-packed bus on a regular basis; which is a thoroughly unpleasant experience. This is why holidays in the Lake District are such a good idea. The only sounds you will be able to hear are sweet birdsong and the wind gently whistling through the trees as opposed to drilling and banging from the workmen outside.

Why not take a little time to consult the comprehensive Lake District Tourist Guide if you want to pick up some inspired ideas about where to go and what to do during your stay? You can also get in touch with us online if you are interested in finding out more about why lodges are a feasible alternative to the more common hotels and B&B’s in Windermere; of which there are many.
