“Great place with great service !”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

We had a fabulous time at this beautiful Balcony House. Our room was stylish and had everything you could wish for including big fluffy towels and comfy dressing gowns. Breakfast was excellent, made with fresh eggs from their own chicken. If you like chicken (or just the eggs), Mandy will certainly be happy to show you her very special pets.
Many thanks Mandy and Brian

Had a super night's stay at Balcony House on our way to Keswick. Got a lift into town for a night out from Brian and great advice on local pubs and restaurants. Bed was huge and really comfortable and the whole place was clean and superbly presented. The owners had thought of everything in our room and the breakfast was fantastic. Would highly recommend it!

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Balcony. We chose to stay there due to reading previous reviews and can only add our praise too! Mandy and Brian are amazing hosts with a wealth of honest local knowledge of the surrounding area. The breakfasts are fantastic and we found we didn`t want to eat again till at least mid afternoon.
The property is within easy walking distance of Kendal which has a good selection of places to eat and drink.
Mandy and Brians` extended family of Grace the dog, Douglas and Duck-Duck the ducks and Frazzle the hen plus friends all gave us plenty to laugh and talk about, I`m sure "Cuddle a Duck in Cumbria" will take off !!
All in all a wonderful stay with fantastic hosts, we will definately return again.

This is surely the best B & B we have ever visited, & we have stayed in many. Top marks for everything. Mandy & Brian are lovely hosts & have thought of everything & much more to make your visit a delight. The extras in the room & bathroom were amazing. Ladies, Mandy has thought of everything to pamper yourself. Also we didn't know there were so many different tea & coffee varieties! The rooms are so comfortable, spotlessly clean & tastefully decorated. The breakfast was excellent, & cooked to perfection.
A lovely couple. Would have loved to stay longer & definitely will be back.
Many thanks.

Beautifully decorated rooms and fantastic hospitality await you at The Balcony. Mandy and Brian are wonderful hosts and will make you feel very welcome. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast is fabulous. We've been there 3 years running and always look forward to our stay. Going back next year. The attention to detail in this period property is amazing which makes it a real treat to stay there.
