Large suite of rooms on the top floor of our Georgian Grade II listed house in Kendal town centre quietly tucked away at the head of an historic cobbled yard. Double bedroom, huge adjoining living room (with basic kitchenette and double sofa bed) and modern bathroom all for the exclusive use of our guests. Free parking.

The space

Although the suite is part of our house, it is private and self contained with its own access so you can come and go as you please.

The suite can comfortably accommodate 4 people with 1 double bedroom, large private living room (28ft x 21ft - 8.5m x 6.5m) with basic kitchenette and double sofa bed and a modern private bathroom.

Please note: there are no cooking or washing up facilities in the suite. Crockery and cutlery is provided for breakfast and/or takeaway food and we collect and do the washing up for you when requested!

All rooms have double height ceilings with exposed beams, great views across Kendal's rooftops to the hills beyond and plenty of character.

The living room has 2 large lounging sofas (one of which opens to a comfortable double bed) a 48" Smart HD TV and DVD player and kitchenette with fridge, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine and Aeroccino milk frother, toaster, crockery and cutlery. The bedroom has a double bed, flat screen TV and digital radio. The bathroom has a large free-standing bath with hand held shower, twin sinks, underfloor heating and glass towel warmer.

Towels, bed linen, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, universal travel adaptor and hot water bottles are provided. Wi-fi.

You'll find a large selection of DVDs under the coffee table and an array of local interest books, leaflets and maps which you are welcome to use during your stay.

Help-yourself-breakfast is provided for each day of your stay at no extra cost (homemade bread, butter and preserves, fresh fruit, cereal, milk, local yoghurts, fruit juices, black and herbal teas and a selection of Nespresso coffees). There are ice cubes in the freezer compartment of the fridge.

Please take a look at our guidebook for details of local restaurants and eateries we recommend.

We own a miniature Dachshund (very small). Her name is Miss Saveloy Sausage or Savvy for short. She is very quiet, friendly and adores children but is never allowed in the suite (she can't get up the stairs - they are too big)!

Interaction with guests

I run my graphic design business, Dada Design, from home so I'm around if you need anything. When my work load allows, I love to spend time with guests and get to know them better, but I'm also sensitive if guests prefer their privacy. We've found texting is the perfect way to communicate with guests during their stay so a verified mobile number is very useful.

Other things to note

We are close to the border with Scotland - Edinburgh and Glasgow are approx 2 hours away by train or car.

Perfect place from which to explore the Lake District. We had a hire car and made a few day trips. Our hosts provided delicious breakfast foods and the dry kitchen was tremendously well stocked. We want to find some Lakeland tea to take home. Comfortable bed. Huge den. Luxurious bath. Already scheming to return.

The Colour House is a very nice, a true Bed and Breakfast. The living area is very spacious and artfully decorated. The bath is beautiful and very soothing. Plenty of light and very airy make it very comfortable. The location is prime in the center of town within easy walking distances to shops and restaurants. Caryn was very responsive to our emails and requests and provided the needed directions to the house. We would definitely stay again.

What a beautiful house and wonderful hosts. Met and surpassed expectations. The pictures don't begin to do it justice, and the care taken to make the stay special was impressive. The breakfast setup was particularly thoughtful and convenient. This is the place you want to stay in Kendal... trust me!

My husband and I with our two kids spent 2 nights at Caryn's loft and we all loved it! The place is specious, comfortable and has so much character. The bathroom is beautiful and the large tub was a big hit. Caryn's husband met us at check in and was so gracious and kind. We loved all the breakfast choices and just wished we could have stayed longer. Location is perfect!
