About this listing
The Tiny B & B
The Tiny B&B is to be found on the ground floor of one of Kendal’s oldest, and most quirky, houses. This three hundred year old house is situated in Dr Manning’s Yard, famous for looking almost exactly the same as it did when it was built in 1700. One end of the yard brings you out onto Kendal’s main street and the other end is the River Kent and a short walk to Kendal Castle.
If you are looking for a cosy little en suite room moments away from all Kendal has to offer - you have come to the right place!
The tiny room has a very comfortable double bed, small chair and table, TV and DVD player, hairdryer, clock, en suite shower room and WC. There is second room where you can sit and eat.
A miniature fridge, kettle, microwave and toaster is provided as well as cutlery and crockery for breakfast.
Breakfast is a do-it-yourself affair. Tea and coffee, bread, butter, jam, yoghurt and a choice of cereal are provided.
If you do not feel like sampling Kendal’s restaurants then there are a number of takeaways within 5 minutes walk. Crockery is provided for your use.
Wireless broadband is also available for the duration of your stay.
The room has its own separate entrance so you can come and go as you please.
Check in is after 6pm unless we make a prior arrangement and check out is 10am. Arrive, get cosy and enjoy yourself!
I am afraid I no longer accept one person for one night. You are welcome to book for two nights or more or, alternatively, you can pay the price for double occupancy for one night. I am really sorry if this is an inconvenience.
I would highly recommend the Tiny B & B; it was great value for money and had all that you'd need including hairdryer, iron, microwave etc. It was also very easy to find and very close to the Brewery Arts centre for the cinema and bar/restaurant.
The provisions for breakfast were great especially the crumpets and home made jam which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The ensuite bathroom was very handy, I also loved that fact that it was such an old property - lots of history!
Many thanks Louise, I'll be back sometime in the future!
We didn't meet Louise but her directions to the b&b and parking info were good- the car park is very close to the rear entrance of the yard. The rooms were comfortable and there was milk,butter,juice and yogurt in the fridge and crumpets,bread,jam and cereal for our breakfast. We only stayed one night and were visiting friends so can't really comment on nearby pubs and restaurants!
it is a comfortbale and special stone house built hundreds year before, amzing experience, thank you lou.
The place is tiny but very cosy, charming and had everything we needed. Also the location was great as it is only a few meters from the main road in Kendal. The breakfast breakfast provided was delicious, especially the homemade jam. A perfect place to stay in Kendal.
Although Louise and I never met, she made sure that everything for my stay was comfortable and ready. I pleasantly arrived to baked goods (which were much appreciated after a long day's journey), a heated room, and a very neat little room.
Perfect location and super convenient place, which accessible to various tourist sites in the Lake District by public transport ( No 555 bus at the central bus station only 5 minute walk) . Lou is an amazing and sensible host. I had a great time staying at this cozy and charming place. Highly recommend. I would love to stay there again if I come back.
We absolutely fell in love with Louise's place! It was tiny (as the name suggests!), but also cosy, welcoming and had everything we needed. Look no further if you are seeking a quintessentially English gem and a totally unique experience. Thank you - we will definitely be back!
