Head for the Lake District and a Kendal holiday cottage
Situated to the south of the Lake District, Kendal is home to country cottages and charming shops and cafes, and is surrounded by some of the most breathtaking scenery in the UK. Whether you want an active holiday, exploring the Lake District, or are more interested in the heritage and culture of the area, Kendal has lots to offer visitors of all ages.
Learn more about the history of the town and the natural history of the Lakes at the Kendal Museum, which was established in 1796. Exhibits cover everything from archaeology to geology; it is a fascinating place to discover Kendal's secrets.
Georgian house Abbot Hall is now an art gallery, with works by John Ruskin, JMW Turner, and David Hockney in its permanent collection, alongside special exhibitions and regular events. Kendal's Museum of Lakeland Life allows visitors to get hands on, handling exhibits from the town's rural and industrial past, while learning about author and Lake District aficionado, Arthur Ransome.
Family fun in the Lakes
While kids will enjoy exploring the Lake District on foot or by bike, Kendal also has family-friendly attractions for younger children, or for a rainy day. Lakeland Maze and Farm park is home to sheep, pigs, horses, and even alpacas and llamas, as well as an award-winning maze. Feed the animals before taking a ride on the tractor or racing your family in the go-karts.
Beatrix Potter loved the Lake District and found her inspiration for her popular books in the animals she observed here. Head to the World of Beatrix Potter in nearby Bowness-on-Windermere to see her creations come to life. You can also meet some of the local wildlife face-to-face at the Predator Experience at Ecclerigg, where you can handle hawks and eagles, or join a pack of foxes to learn how they survive in the wild.
Head for the hills
Of course, most people staying in a Kendal accommodation are there to visit the Lake District. Take a stroll up Kendal Fell to get a great view of the town and the Lake District beyond, or head north for more challenging hikes to the hills above Lake Windermere. If you prefer to explore the lakes from the water, you can take a boat trip on both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water, or hire a kayak and do some exploring on your own.
Mountain biking is very popular, and you can easily hire a bike, choosing to follow tracks or heading off the beaten path. While experienced climbers will want to hit the more challenging Lake District slopes, beginners can learn a new skill at the Lakeland Climbing Centre, which boasts the tallest indoor climbing wall in the country.
