“A lovely B&B in a happy home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Excellent accommodation with very friendly hosts. We arrived in the evening & was made to feel very welcome. It's a very busy home with lots of laughter! On arrival we were offered drinks, which was very kind after a long journey. The room was lovely & clean & the bed very comfortable. We had a room with an ensuite, which again was very clean. Breakfast in the morning was excellent, served on the huge dining table. A variety of breakfast cereals were offered along with a full cooked breakfast (which was of top quality). We were touring round due to University open days & this was the first of our overnight stays but was definitely the best!

Highly recommend this friendly and well run bed & breakfast. A real home from home where you mix with the owners family.
Comfortable, well equipped rooms with fantastic ensuite.
Beds were comfortable & rooms clean and beautifully decorated.
Breakfast was fantastic with selection of cereals, cooked breakfast & homemade bread.
All in all,a great place to stay!

I stayed at Kendal house the night before and the night of my wedding, it was fantastic! I really don't think we could have asked for more, the staff were very friendly and relaxed and the beds/house/breakfast were amazing.
The staff went the extra mile... even to the point of ironing my brother in laws shirt! They and the house were definitely a big part of a very special day.

For me, a Motorsport fan, this was an ideal b&b, you would be hard pushed to find a better family run business.With its location only a few miles from the home of British Motorsport, it is situated in beautiful countryside and has a wonderful family feel. So much so, I have already booked for next year !

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely, book early for rooms with en-suites.

We stayed at Kendal House over the weekend of the British Grand Prix 2013. We arrived early on the Sun (as we were staying on the Sun night to avoid all the traffic) and received a warm welcome from the owner. We were offered tea and breakfast despite not having stayed the night before and then to save us having to walk the 5-6 miles we were offered a lift to the circuit. The House was lovely and the room was exactly what you want - clean tidy comy bed and a nice shower.

Would stay here again without a moments hesitation and would recommend to anyone.

We were going to a friends 60th birthday party in the village of Blakesly Northants and as we live in Essex we needed a room for the night. Our friend suggested we try Kendal house and we were not disappointed! Our room was lovely, we were given tea and cake on arrival taken in the cosy sitting room by the wood burning fire. The children were delightful and so was their little dog! Nothing was too much trouble for the family and so much so that when it was time to walk to the village hall, the party venue we were escorted by their son to make sure we found it! Our breakfast this morning was superb and again a family affair served by various members of the family! All in all lovely we certainly strongly recommend it and hope to go back again!

This is the second time we have stayed at Kendal House and again we enjoyed another fantastic weekend with Karyn, Ian and their family. You are guaranteed a warm welcome lovely rooms the house is situated in Blakesley the middle of the coutryside. Definately the place to stay if you wish to get away from the hustle and bustle. We had the room on the top floor fantastic king sized bed, lovely bathroom with a shower over the bath and if needed there is a tv in the room. The breafasts that Ian provides are brilliant and just what you need to set you up for a day out at Silverstone Race Circuit which is about a ten/fifiteen minute drive. The village has a pub serving meals but we chose to eat at the Crown in Weston on our second evening on Ians recommendation, we weren't disappointed the sort of place that you are reluctant leave with a really good friendly atmosphere and excellent food. We certainly will return and know we will be guaranteed a warm welcome from all the family, see you next year.
