The nearest railway stations are Kendal, or Oxenholme - pick up from Kendal station may be possible. The buses pass the end of our lane and take you into the heart of the Lake District.
Kendal is a pretty and lively market town with a good choice of restaurants etc and a theatre, cinema and leisure centre/swimming pool.
The house is set in stunning countryside and there are lovely walks from the house if you don’t want to drive. Windermere is only 8 miles away and you can be in our favourite place in the world, Langdale, in about 45mins.
We can advise you on walks to suit your needs and other places of interest, as we love the Lake District very much, and spend lots of time exploring it.
We have a friend who may be able to guide you on a walk if you feel like taking advantage of a local person's knowledge. Let us know in advance if this interests you and we may be able to organise this.
Debbie and Chris live in the house along with Poppy and Beanie our small, friendly dogs and we are looking forward to meeting you :). We realise that some people may not feel like meeting our dogs and that is fine. they are never allowed upstairs and they are happy to stay in their own space!!.
So go on give yourself a holiday! We would love to meet you.
Shoes off in lobby please - hope that doesn't make us sound like control freaks :)
Thank you Chris and Debbie. We were made to feel welcome from the start and glad to make it off the hills to a warm fire each evening. Felt like a home from home with a great breakfast to start the day.
Debbie and Chris are the very helpful and nice hosts, I loved staying with them. The room is very cozy, and beautifully furnished, you may definitely slow yourself down in this beautiful place. I'll be coming back to this place durning the summer time. Highly recommend to all airbnbers!
Riding down the lane to Debbie's house I had a good feeling about my stay. The house really is a 'character' property nicely located just outside Kendal but within reach of any eateries or pubs you might want. There was somewhere sheltered to store my bike and once in the lovely fire-lit living room, the Hosts were lovely to chat to - Debbie was close to finishing the Wainrights, which went someway to explaining their vast map collection upstairs! Bed was super comfy and breakfast in the morning was great. When in Kendal next, I will be knocking at the door for sure!
Debbie and Chris were welcoming, warm and flexible. Unfortunately we had very very little time, just one short night to enjoy their beautiful home, which means we will just have to go back. Thanks for the delicious breakfast. Michelle and Geo.
Debbie and Chris are wonderfull people, charming and polite. They were very helpfull. Everything was exactly as in description. Place is fabulous. Definitly we are comming back to them soon. Thank You very much for such a great time.
It was a great experience to live with Debbie and her family. We had a great time in the wonderful , clean and warm house. They give us very useful suggestions to travel around Lake District and the breakfast Debbie prepared for us was wonderful. The neighborhood was quiet and the view was extremely pretty. Thanks again for the perfect stay.
Using AirBnb can be a bit of a lottery. Sometimes you get a great place, sometimes you wished you looked closer. But if AirBnb is the lottery then Chris and Debbie's character house is the equivalent of a euro millions rollover win. We could not have felt more welcomed or at home. The house , the location, the breakfast, the company, all of it was simply fantastic. If you're going to be in the area then I can't imagine booking anywhere else. I brought my extended family who absolutely loved the house, the location and the company as well as our three month old daughter who slept really well. Book here if you can. If you struggle with availability change your plans, make this an essential part of visiting the Lakes.
We are Deb and Chris. We both love the outdoors and spend lots of time in the fells. We know the Lake District really well and think it’s the best place in the world - especially when the sun shines! We have two sons now off expanding their horizons so have space to share. Debs entrepreneurial brother tells us we “need to make our assets sweat” (?!?) so we thought we’d try Airbnb and hope to meet some nice people along the way. We share a love of nature and try to live a low impact lifestyle but also enjoy nights out, food and the arts. Thank goodness for the Kendal Brewery Arts Centre – though it has to be said that Chris spends a lot more time in the bar than the theatre!
If you come and stay with us you’ll get a warm welcome, comfy rooms, easy access to the Lakes, Howgills and Dales and any advice you want about where to walk/climb/paraglide/bike/lakeswim/eat/drink etc. Hope to meet you soon.
