    School House Bed and Breakfast
    "Great place to stay"
    By , Derby, UK
    This is the perfect place to stay when visiting Kendal: close to everything and excellent accommodation. The room was clean and well laid out, the beds & pillows very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and a treat to have it served in our room - no having to get dressed to go downstairs. Best of all, our hostess Heidi was so welcoming and ready with advice about where to eat and go out.

    Enjoyed our stay in this clean and perfectly located bed and breakfast. Our room is roomy for three adults. Love the big bath tub and the accompanied bath robes, huge and fleecy bath towels and toiletries. Felt quite pampered having our breakfast in bed or to be more accurate served in our room. The breakast served was substantial with healthy choices eg fruit and yoghurt, granola and yoghurt. It is also possible to enjoy the full English breakfast of egg, bacon, sausage, mushroom and baked beans or grilled tomato. Yummm! We stayed two nights and will definitely stay here again should we visit the Lake Districts again.

The ensuite bathroom as large, the shower wonderful and the nice detailed touches of shower gel and shampoo and also some Kendal Mint Cake with the coffee making facilities all helped to make my stay a great experience. I would definitely book again. Thank you Heidi and Dave.

Heidi was so helpful she had a map of all local places worth a visit and recommended some places for tea (i would recommend the thai just over the bridge it was incredible) Also the breakfast was great, me and my girlfriend loved every minute of the stay and will definitely be going back in the future :) thanks !!

    We had a most enjoyable stay at The School House. Heidi was a wonderful hostess and the rooms were so comfortable, with especially fluffy towels. There was everything you need in the room, we wanted for nothing. Breakfast was amazing, with so much choice and it was all very delicious. I would definitely recommend a stay here, in fact, we plan to make it an annual event!
