Staycations are firmly back on the map and with many of us missing out on holidays in 2020, accommodation in popular UK resorts is filling up fast for summer 2021.
Kendal makes the perfect destination for your 2021 staycation, whether your looking for a weekend of retail therapy and fascinating heritage or an adventurous week filled with fresh air and stunning scenery – here in Kendal we have it all!
What makes Kendal truly special is our location, a historic market town nestled next to the UNESCO World Heritage English Lake District. England’s largest lake – Lake Windermere is just a short 8 mile drive away. For added convenience a local train line connects Kendal to the pretty town of Windermere and from here a bustling bus network can weave you through the Lake District for adventurous days surrounded by natural beauty.
Less known, but equally picturesque, the Howgill Fells sit just 10 miles to the north east of Kendal. The Howgills are a delightful range of 26 rolling green giants which offer fantastic hiking conditions.
For a cultural fix, Kendal offers several fantastic museums – the Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry, the Quaker Tapestry Museum and the Kendal Museum. And a trip to Kendal isn’t complete without a wander up to our historic castle for great views across our town.
Whilst small enough to explore the town entirely on foot, Kendal offers a surprising variety of shops. With popular high street names sitting alongside local boutiques and galleries in our shopping yards and centres.
No staycation is complete without enjoying the local cuisine and Kendal won’t leave you disappointed. Kendal’s foodie scene is always evolving, with our makers and bakers looking to offer the next exciting menu.
Book your accommodation today and we look forward to welcoming you to Kendal later in the year.
