Our second stay at the Lyndhurst and Yvonne welcomed us like long lost friends. As ever our stay was most enjoyable, the breakfasts are wonderful and plentiful. Nothing is too much trouble for the 'wicked landlady'. Cannot rate the service you get from Yvonne highly enough.

Friendly welcome, lots of personal touches in this one. Charming alternative to a bland motel and great situation for Kendal town centre. Filling breakfast set me up for hill days and a wedding! My room was clean and tidy and well stocked with snacks and drinks. Landlady is helpful, friendly and informative - all in all a really enjoyable stay!

All you would expect from a first rate B&B. The bed was comfy, the shower was powerful and hot, and the breakfast was varied and tasty. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner, Yvonne, and I am more than happy to recommend this fine B&B to anyone wanting to stay in Kendal

Attending a function in Kendal I needed somewhere comfortable but reasonably priced. I could not have found anywhere nicer then the Lyndhurst. Keys were under the pot, just as instructed, and a found a good sized room looking over the river Kent. Settled I went off to my dinner, returning in the wee small hours. Slept like a top. In...

We stayed here a few weeks ago (for 4 nights) and were going to be late, this was no problem as Yvonne the owner told us how we would be able to get into the guesthouse. When we arrived the room was warm, very cosy and inviting. We met Yvonne in the morning and she was very nice and down...

Really enjoyed my stay here. Really comfortable, welcoming. Yvonne's enthusiasm and welcome was very nice. Easy to park opposite, could hear the river outside. Breakfast was excellent with real vegetables (not out of tine etc) and good quality sausages - unlike many breakfasts. I often stay alone and usually choose an impersonal hotel, but this B&B was lovely.

We arrived late at night on our first night (of a 3 night stay) and were able to communicate beforehand with Yvonne about how to get into the guesthouse. The room was perfect for us with a comfortable bed, drinks-making facilities, home-made cake and a perfect television set-up for us to watch in bed when we arrived. The breakfast menu...

Stayed in Yvonne's quirky homely guest house. Made to feel welcomed from the minute we walked through the door. The bed was the comfiest we've ever stayed in. Attention to detail was outstanding- hot water bottle, tea and cakes in the room. Breakfast made with fresh, local quality products. Will definitely be coming back!

Lovely clean rooms with little creative extras, small but clean bathrooms, excellent breakfast and a very caring landlady. Also the location is lovely with a view of the river and not far from town center.

Thank Hannah N
