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.
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.
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!
We were running late and didn't have a working phone to contact our host. She was there when we arrived and very gracious and understanding. Gave us a very warm welcome
Host was welcoming. Probably not good if you are over 5'10", but luckily my in-laws were not, so it was ok.
My mum and I had the loveliest stay at Louise's Tiny B&B. The place was as advertised, cosy, a lot of character with (beautiful stove, thick stone walls, wooden beam) charmingly decorated, clean. All informations to make our stay convenient were there on arrival, the do-it-yourself breakfast seemed able to cater anyone's preferences (at least it did for us).
The bed is very confortable and the 2 nights we had there were quiet.
We can't avoid to mention either that Louise was a very considerate host, making sure we had all needed and offering advises on local places to go to.
Welcoming greetings by the adorable cat have also been much enjoyed.
If ever going back to Kendal, for sure I would return to the tiny B&B.
Thank you Louise !
We received a very warm welcome. We arrived 45 minutes early and was planning to just locate the B&B and return but Louise kindly allowed us to drop our bags off. The location is perfect for access to Kendal. The only issue is parking is very expensive and it is all weekend.
The listing was accurate, a cosy small private living and sleeping space which was ideal for my needs - I was on my own in Kendal for a course. Very central location in town but quiet and it felt very safe, with the owners living above. All pre-arrival information was excellent, allowing you to arrive in your own time. Owners unobtrusive but there if you needed them. Relaxed stay.
