“Superb quality apartment”
Reviewed 21 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Great location, tasteful decoration, very clean and well stocked. Caroline personally met us on arrival and was very helpful and knowledgable regarding the local area. The allocated parking spot was very useful as it meant we could leave the car and explore on foot.This was our first trip to Kendal and we were all very impressed with the Town and the amenities. II wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to my friends and family.

“a new year stay”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Drysalters Yard. The apartment is wonderful - very clean, quiet and comfortable, furnished to a high standard, and just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Kendal. Caroline (the owner) is helpful regarding where to eat and to give advice on what to do and see; helpful but not intrusive.The apartment is conveniently close to the railway and bus station, so that a car is not really necessary.

“Perfect apartment near centre of historic Kendal”
Reviewed 29 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed at 4 Drysalters during Christmas week 2012. The owner, Caroline, personally welcomed us and showed us around the apartment, which we found immaculately clean and very comfortably furnished, with the addition of many considerate touches such as a bottle of wine, a box of luxury biscuits and a pretty little Christmas tree. Caroline contacted us the next day to make sure we had been able to make ourselves at home, which we appreciated. The apartment is ideal for anyone who wants a jumping-off point for exploring the Lakes, as well as being very well located for travellers who prefer not to drive, being a short walk from the local railway and bus stations, and only about ten minutes on foot from the town centre with its wide choice of shops, restaurants and cafes, and other attractions. The apartment is in a quiet neighbourhood, and has dedicated parking. We would highly recommend it and hope to stay there again ourselves before too long.

“Another great stay”
Reviewed 28 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We have stayed at this apartment a few times now. It's in a great location in Kendal (10 min walk into town) and accessible to the rest of the Lakes.

The apartment is modern and well furnished. It's very clean and Caroline is a most welcoming owner - sweets, cererals, wine... all provided. A very friendly host that I doubt you would get in many other places. There is a parking space located just outside the apartment. There are 3 of us that stayed - the apartment offers plenty of room for us. You can easily get 4 in there.

We have booked up for early next year!

“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed 16 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Caroline was waiting when we arrived and made us feel very welcome,Caroline made sure that we knew how every thing worked before she left.
This is great apartment,very well equipped,immaculately clean,very well furnished,can not find any faults at all.
The allocated parking is a big plus as it is difficult to park in Kendal and as the town centre is only a 10 min walk no need to take the car.
We have been coming to Kendal every year for more than ten years and this is without doubt the best apartment we have stayed in,wish we had found it sooner.
We would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return next year.

“Very comfortable apartment with all mod cons in a great location”
Reviewed 16 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at Caroline's apartment for 5 days and had a great time - warm reception and guidance by 'phone driving into the site to avoid some temporary roadworks which was much appreciated. The sofas and beds and all facilities are great - very comfortable and the apartment was spotlessly clean upon arrival. At stated, Caroline was very helpful and provided lots of info and tips. Good chip shop just around the corner and an ideal location for Kendal.

“Luxury apartment with great access to The Lakes”
Reviewed 24 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This apartment certainly did not disappoint. Caroline, the owner, aws very friendly and made us very welcome. She provided a complimentary bottle of wine, muffins and a selection of tea's and coffee along with milk and apple juice for the children.
The owners attention to detail is superb. She supplied maps and literature on the area that we used every day on our outings to Windemere, Amleside, Grassmere and Keswick.
Slippers were also provided (my ten tear old daughter loved them!) along with games and DVD's and the Molton Brown toiletries in the bathroom were a real treat.
The kitchen held everything imaginable. As the Olympics were on, we cooked our own meals in the evening and sat supporting team GB in comfort.
The beds were very comfortable and a god send at the end of a days walking.
We would highly recommend this apartment and hopefully will be booking again in the not too distant future.
