Things To Do in Kendal

What’s great about The Sheep Pen is not just the cottage itself and its amenities, but its brilliant location. It’s only a short drive from Bowness and Windermere, the biggest of the lakes in the District, but also the market town of Kendal, where you’ll be able to explore historic streets and take in a few cafes and pubs on route!

If you are looking for food and drink in the area, both the Hawkshead Brewery and the Watermill Inn are less than three miles away. In fact, you’re deep in the heart of Cumbria’s brewery country, with the quiet village of Crook only a short distance up the road.

Of course, if you are heading into Kendal at any point, be sure to take in the Castle and grounds! Your dog will, of course, most likely relish the chance to head out into Windermere itself, where you’ll find the most beautiful lakeland opening up to you on your doorstep.

Many people enjoy staying in the area because of Crook’s famous country walks. The farmland location won’t be lost on dog lovers, as you are about as far from the busy, noisy cities as you could possibly care to be!

If you’re really stuck for choice between Kendal or Windermere – or even Coniston for that matter – this is a bolthole and a launchpad that covers most bases.

Last Word

The Sheep Pen is a fantastic holiday pick, whether for short or longer breaks. Couples looking for somewhere authentic and idyllic, close enough to Windermere and Kendal but just far away enough for it to feel secluded and removed, this is a romantic nook that’s going to bring a lot of great memories to a lot of dog lovers!

The serene surroundings, the spacious bedroom and the mod cons all add up to a contemporary Cumbrian breakaway that’s ideal for anyone looking for stunning country views. This property is warm, roomy, and you also have your own enclosed gravel garden to enjoy meals and drinks on when the weather turns fine. What more could you possibly need?

The Sheep Pen’s farmland location is likely to be a dream pick for many couples, whether they are new to the Cumbrian area or not. This is a luxury chalet spot which retains a lot of rustic character, but doesn’t expect you to give up your precious internet access or TV soaps!

The ultimate escape for couples and pets who can’t decide between Kendal or Windermere for a holiday – we absolutely adore The Sheep Pen, and spaces here always go very quickly indeed.
