This is a wonderful place to stay. Spotless and quiet bedroom, very comfortable bed (like sleeping on a cloud!), plentiful toiletries in bathroom, lots of tea and coffee choices in bedroom, elegant and tasteful décor, fantastic breakfast, really friendly hosts, very reasonable prices. We will certainly be back! Note however that this B&B does not accommodate children.

Everything about the Balcony House was fantastic. Comfortable bed, clean stylish room, pristine bathroom, warm house with a homemade breakfast that can't be beat. And Brian and Mandy were so hospitable and kind - they housed our luggage before the room was available and after the room needed to be turned over so that we might have a few more...

Exceptionally good quiet b & b on the outskirts of Kendal but with everything within walking distance including the hotel pool and gym ( a big plus for us to unwind after long walks in the hills). Very comfortable bed and everything included in a very high quality breakfast. Thanks again to Mandy and her husband for a very genuine...

Really lovely bed and breakfast. The place is spotless and comfortable with one of the nicest breakfasts we have ever had, in fact there was probably to much if I am honest. Brian and Mandy are lovely hosts who made us feel welcome form the start. There are some nice touches like dressing gowns and decent quality items in the...

From the welcome, to the room, the breakfast and the excellent surroundings this is a bed and breakfast to recommend! We would have loved to have stayed longer - one of the most comfortable sleeps we enjoyed in over 4 weeks of travelling.
