Travelled as a couple for a short October break. We received a warm welcome from the hostess. She gave us a small map of the town and provided us with an entertaining rundown of places to eat and things to do. She also asked us to decide when we wanted breakfast, and which of the food options to go for. The breakfast options were varied enough to satisfy anybody. One of us had the full English and the other had a rich bowlful of porridge. Absolutely delicious and very filling!
In general there was a laid back atmosphere at the Lyndhurst Guest House. The owners were happy to chat with us and give us advice. There was no 'curfew', so no pressure to rush back at night. Our room was a decent size, homely, clean and bright. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and there were a couple of comfy chairs by the window.
From the front door it took us around 10 minutes to reach the centre of the town. It's quite a pleasant walk, with assorted shops and restaurants along the way. The castle is nearby too - with fantastic views of the surroundings. It's about a 20 minute walk along the river to reach Kendal train station. You could also get there by taxi from Oxenholme station in about 5 minutes.
We enjoyed our stay at the Lyndhurst Guest House, a comfortable place with great character. The only downside we could think of is that they don't take card payments. But as long as you keep that in mind, and remember to take your chequebook, you should have a pleasant stay here.
