Hotels in Kendal
Book a Kendal hotel with us and discover what is referred to locally as the Auld Grey Town because of the proliferation of distinctive slate-coloured buildings. Kendal is blessed with its position close to both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, and is a must-visit destination in its own right.
Situated on a hill that overlooks the River Kent and the town itself, Kendal Castle is steeped in history. Although ruined since Tudor times, the castle is nonetheless a striking edifice and was once the baronial seat of the Parr family, of whom Katherine was the last wife of Henry VIII. The 12th century stronghold provides a wealth of picnic opportunities and walks.
More information about the castle and Kendal as a whole can be found at the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology. One of the oldest in the country, the museum contains displays from prehistoric times, through to Roman occupation and beyond. In fact, you'll find artefacts from the Galava Roman fort which was located in nearby Ambleside.
At one end of Maude Street you'll find Nobles Rest, a park that is well named because of its popularity with local workers and residents as spot for lunch or a picnic. Here you'll find a maze, wild flower meadow, scented garden and grand trees.
Less than half a mile from the town centre lies Serpentine Wood. From here you will have great views of the castle and town, and an opportunity to take a leisurely stroll among the trees where, if you look carefully, there's a good chance you'll spot squirrels and foxes.
Covering nearly 900mi2 of stunning countryside, the Lake District National Park, less than 10 miles to the northwest of Kendal, is famed for its lakes, valleys, forest and fells, and Scafell Pike, England's highest mountain at approximately 1,000m.
Just over 10 miles to the east lies the Yorkshire Dales with its beautiful woodland areas, historic trees and abundance of wildlife, including red squirrels.
