We spent two nights at Balcony House on our way home to Aberdeenshire, having spent a week in the New Forest. We had a beautiful room, just newly refurbished, very tasteful. Mandy and Brian were very helpful and always on hand if needed. They even put out the bunting on the balcony in the bedroom next to ours as the Queen was visiting Kendal!!! Great choice for breakfast with eggs from their own hens!!! Would certainly book with them the next time we are in the Lake District.

Room Tip: Our room was at the front of the house and was really beautiful. The other guests we met were very...

Balcony house is a beautiful B&B, our room was fantastic and had been recently modernised with a flat screen TV and beautifully appointed en-suit bathroom. Mandy and Brian are amazing hosts, they made sure we had everything we needed and made themselves constantly available. Their breakfast options are amazing, I definitely recommend the full english, with fresh eggs from their chickens. There was also tea and coffee making facilities in our room which is always a bonus. We stayed 2 nights on our trip too and from Edinburgh. Mandy and Brain were very accommodating with our arrival and leaving times which made out trip effortless. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Kendal I wouldn't look anywhere else, would stay here again and again.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautifully appointed and some can be converted into twin rooms if needed.

We keep returning as this is the very best B&B ever. This year all rooms have been newly decorated & furnished to a high standard. Very nice.
I'm sure the breakfast choice & portons get bigger each year. Mandy (& Brian ) how do you cook everything to perfection?
Well done once again for a fantastic stay. See you again next year.

We arrived here and received a warm welcome from Mandy after being able to park outside easily. We were shown around the property and escorted to room 3 which was a twin room with en-suite facilities and a lovely view of the back garden and houses and hills beyond. The facilities were well up to standard and exactly what we expected from reading previous reviews on this site. The full English breakfast on the first morning was out of this world and the portions were so huge that we had to opt for something lighter for the second and final mornings of our stay. Both Brian and Mandy were extremely helpful in suggesting the places we might visit and the best route to take. We would not hesitate to come back. An additional advantage is the free wireless internet connection.

Our return to BH was again a wonderful stay. Mandy and Brian are exceptional hosts and can't do enough for you. The breakfasts really do set you up for the day and the recently refurbished room was was a pleasure to stay in. It's a really charming place to stay and feels very welcoming every time you return from a busy day in the Lakes.

My favorite B&B during a two week trip through England and Scotland! We were coming from a miserable experience at hotel in Leeds. I called Mandy early one morning (almost in a panic) and asked if she had two rooms. Lucky for us she was able to accommodate. She was so warm upon our arrival and helped us get situated in some very charming rooms - comfortable beds and lovely décor. The breakfast was the best we had on our trip, a very complete English breakfast. Brian drove me to town to retrieve an iphone I had left at a restaurant in town. So very nice, the two of them! They have a many pets in the beautiful back garden which just added more charm to a completely wonderful stay. I would definitely return and have the fondest memories of our stay with them.
