Reviewed 30 June 2014

We have stayed previously and were so impressed, that when we had the opportunity to visit the area again, there was no contest where to stay. We were not disappointed. A gorgeous room was ours which had only been recently refurbished. What an amazing standard, with a bathroom to match any in the world. As we remembered, still engaging hosts with the same enthusiasm to make your stay as comfortable as possible, with the excellent breakfast to set you up for the day. When ever we get the chance to visit the area there will be no other place we would wish to be

Stayed but one night and would happily go back without any provocation at all. The house has been sympathetically and tastefully renovated and furnished without being pretentious, and a few minutes walk from Kendal town centre. Wonderful bedroom and en-suite bathroom, with great attention to detail. Don't be put off by it being by the main road as most of what little traffic there is seems to go to Morrisons and so by bedtime all is quiet.
Fantastic breakfast with an amazing choice - including fresh fruit and real tea - no greasy bacon swimming in life jackets or Asda value stuff here !
Peter and Philippa are great hosts, genuinely friendly and helpful. Yes excellent is the only word for it!

Stayed for two nights 30th May - 1st June 2014 - couldn't have wished for a nicer B&B - the bedroom and bathroom were really beautiful and absolutely spotless. The breakfast was so tasty and there was so much choice. Peter and Philippa were the perfect hosts and certainly added a personal touch to the stay. The Ash Meadows is perfectly placed in Kendal for getting into the Lakes or into the Yorkshire Dales. We would not hesitate to return and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect

First class hosts who could not be more charming and helpful to guests, the breakfast was as good as any top hotel, and the rooms are clean, fresh and tastefully decorated, with lots of extra touches; home made biscuits, choice of filter/ instant coffee, plenty of toiletries, fresh milk.
Worth knowing about parking at the school next door, although there is road side parking at the property also, if school is in session.
This place deserves its all "excellent" rating from visitors, long may it continue!

A really comfortable B & B. Great welcome as a return guest. Facilities all that could be desired.
Only slight niggle is parking. Parked in school car park which was fine when school had finished, but not available during school operating times and you need to be aware that the school is open for other activities and meetings.
No particular problem for me as I was out visiting family but could make life difficult for anyone with young children when easy access might be needed during the day.
Philippa & Peter Ennis's welcome and frfendliness mean I shall return, if they will have me!

We came back from our stay well rested and well-fed. Peter and Philippa was excellent hosts and made us feel really welcome. The room was well stocked with a variety of hot drinks and some lively home made biscuits. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Comfortable beds and sumptious rooms, delicious breakfasts with fresh local eggs and the most welcoming and helpful host imaginable - we were greeted like old friends. We'll be back and we'll be recommending! Can't say better than that!
