What a fabulous place to stay. Spent two nights at the Balcony House for a girlie weekend and it did just what is says on the packet and more. Mandy and Brian couldn't do enough to make our stay more enjoyable every little detail is thought about. The room I stayed in was beautiful, I had my own bathroom and shower room. Will be going again very soon. Four very happy ladies from Manchester

Stayed 2 nights here, wishing it could be longer. You are welcomed to their lovely home by hosts Mandy and Brian. The standards of quality and service are equal to any first class hotel. Everything is spotlessly clean. My ensuite room was tastefully decorated, even with a sparkling chandelier. The bathroom had a great shower, fluffy white towels, cosy robes and toiletries. The bed was soooo..comfortable with quality linens. Also had flat screen TV and fully stocked hospitality tray. Room overlooked garden and duck pond with the hills in the background - so serene and quiet.
Breakfast served in their attractive diningroom included many choices and if you opt for the full breakfast, I guarantee you won't need lunch. It was scrumptious!
At the end of the day I looked forward to returning to relax and enjoy my most comfortable room.
If I lived in England, I would be a frequent return visitor, and I am sure they have many returning guests.

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to email directly with any questions or concerns you have. Good hosts will reply...

Just had two wonderful nights at this wonderful B & B. Lots if top quality furnishings and little extras that made our stay extra special. Brian and Mandy are fantastic hosts recommending good places to eat and drink with the addition of lifts to make sure we knew where to go, this was above and beyond anything experienced before. I must also praise the delicious full English breakfast with top quality produce. Would have no hesitation in recommending this little gem.

Just had an overnight stay with Mandy and Brian, and couldn't recommend it more. We're in Kendal again for The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival - and if we hadn't been already booked elsewhere, we'd have been delighted to have stayed at Balcony House for the weekend.
Nothing was too much trouble, the room was terrific - very comfy bed, and we had bad backs - they made our very brief stay even better than we could have anticipated. Thanks again!

I don't usually prefer B&B accomodation. But Balcony House was a real treat. Our room was far more beautiful than the photos. Plush and luxurious. I have never seen so much loving attention to detail. Wonderful bedding, beautiful plants and flowers, real coffee, bottled water, toiletries and other thoughtful supplies.. everything you might need on a night away from home. It is a delight to stay in a place so committed to excellence. Yet so unique and friendly. The breakfast is hugely generous in quality and size. Neither my husband nor myself could finish ours.

Just spent two perfect nights at the Balcony. From first arriving Mandy and Brian make you feel very welcome, their knowledge of the area is worth it's weight in gold, everything they recommended,we tried and was not disappointed. I was visiting with three other friends and we were all delighted with our rooms, which were spotless, comfortable, beautifully furnished and decorated. We all sampled the full English breakfast that was plentiful, delicious and set us up for the day.
For Brian and Mandy nothing is to much trouble and they work very hard to ensure you enjoy your stay in Kendal and I can confirm we did.
