    This quality mews style property on the fringe of the Auld Grey town of Kendal is reputed to have once stabled the race horse Red Rum, and having undergone a major transformation from its former equestrian life, is now a champion in self catering terms! Kendal, a medieval market town with cobbled streets and riverside walks and is a super base from where to explore Kirkby Lonsdale and the Dales as well as the Lake District, both being within a 15-minute drive. The Old Woodyard also benefits from easy access to the surrounding fells (5-minute walk) and 10 minutes walk to the town centre. The property offers superb facilities for couples or small families, the open plan living accommodation offering a rather social atmosphere, perfect for relaxing evenings round the dining table or in front of the fireplace. Exposed beams serve as a reminder to the age of this old building but also add character. The enclosed patio area is just the spot for an aperitif before dinner in one of the many great restaurants that Kendal has to offer. Beach 14 miles. Shop 220 yards, pub 330 yards and restaurant 400 yards.

    Stayed at the Old Woodyard for 5 nights, were really pleased with the standard of the accommodation and didn’t feel the photos on the website fully did it justice. We had everything we needed and it felt very much like home, were we were able to relax and use it as a base for exploring the Lake District

    The cottage is lovely and well equipped but we’ve stayed in much cleaner properties. It is disappointing that they choose to charge for baby equipment when it is readily available in the cottage. We chose to take our own rather than pay to hire. The central heating was unpredictable and the heating was needed for the main bedroom to help eradicate the smell of damp.when we arrived the outside bins were overflowing with waste which left us with the problem of discarding of waste from inside the property.we also found the lack of sound proofing when walking around upstairs caused an awful banging noise with the joists moving which disturbed our children in bed at night. On one of the days the gardener must have been in when we were out and upon our return the property smelled strongly of petrol which resulted in us having to open all the windows and doors for 24 hrs to eradicate the smell. The main positive is the cottage is in a great location and only a short 5min walk into town.

    Second time we have stayed here and it was as enjoyable as the first. There is everything you need for a comfortable stay, and the living room and kitchen/dining room is really spacious for four people. A short 5/ 10 minute walk brings you into kendal town centre with lots of chose for eating and drink. It's a great base to explore the rest of the lakes with lots of other nice places within an hour's drive, overall had a great weeks stay

    Lovely cottage and is finished to a high standard. WiFi not terribly good and we couldn’t get the radiators to come on, so seemed a little dampish (although it was raining - a lot!) Kendal is a lovely place with some very friendly pubs.

    A real gem. Was perfect for our 4 night stay with friends. Had everything you could possibly need and was clean and tidy. We loved all the tasteful ornaments and quality furniture. A short walk into the town with nice pubs and restaurants and a drive away from the lakes. Loved our stay. Thank you.

    We found The Old Woodyard to be a very nice, stylish, spacious, well equipped property in a pretty part of Kendal. The pictures shown don't really do the property justice, it's even nicer than it looks. It's also quiet, has a pleasant outlook and is close to a good family friendly pub, with further cafes, bars, and shops all within walking distance in the town centre - we thought Kendal was very nice and had a lot to offer. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return again.

    We stay in this cottage twice a year when we visit family. It really is a home from home. The parking space is worth its weight in gold!

    The Old Woodyard is a well presented, comfortable and clean cottage located in the beautiful part of the country that is Kendal. The cottage offers a relaxing 'home from home' experience and we thoroughly recommend a stay here.

    I chose a bad week, with consistently bad weather. But this was a comfortable and stylish retreat from the rain. Well equipped and spacious, the Old Woodyard has a modern rather than “cottagey” feel. I would recommend it.

    The Old Woodward is our favourite place to stay whenever we visit Kendal. Our first choice. It's very attractively designed with tasteful furnishings and decor and provides a very comfortable stay. We tend to visit Kendal fairly frequently to spend time with our daughter and two grandchildren. If we are able to book The Old Woodyard it lifts my spirits. I find it a creative and delightful venue. I hope we are able to stay there again soon - and thank you to the owners.

    The Old Woodyard was comfortable, clean and well equipped. Really enjoyed our stay. One additional parking space would have been the icing on the cake but I know that's a big ask as parking in Kendal is at a premium!
