Greyhound Cottage is a traditional Lakeland stone terraced house only 2 minutes walk from the centre of the market town of Kendal. 

This cottage is just steps from the bustling centre of Kendal and is position close to the river and riverside parks make this ideal for your walks with a dog. It is a perfect base to explore this attractive historic market town and the Lake District National park.

Step inside and the cottage consists of an open plan lounge and dining room, with comfortable seating for 4. The kitchen is located just off this space down two steps, it is well equipped with dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge and freezer and everything you will need for your stay. Upstairs we have the two bedrooms and a family bathroom. Both bedrooms are doubles with plenty of storage and the second bedroom is a king size that can be split into two singles. The bathroom is light and airy with a shower over the bath, perfect for a soak after a day's exploring.

Outside to the rear, there is a designated parking space by the back door for this cottage. The cottage is dog-friendly and although there is no outside area, there are plenty of open spaces by the river and parks within close walking distance, which are perfect to allow your pooch to stretch their legs.

Kendal itself has the Abbot Hall Art gallery, museum and the Brewery Arts Center which houses festivals throughout the year, such as the International Mountain Festival and Comic Arts festival, while the Brewery Arts has live music, films and comedy throughout the year to sample. There is a twice weekly market, many eateries and an array of cobbled historic yards, which have a good selection of independent shops. There is a local train station as well the main Oxenholme station which can also take you to Staveley where you can sample the Hawkshead brewery or easily travel to Windermere where to you can enjoy lake activities such as cruising. 

Greyhound cottage is in an excellent location to enjoy Kendal and is very convenient to explore the Lakes. A perfect holiday spot for you and four legged members of your family to explore and enjoy this beautiful area year round. 

NB The king size bed is presented as one bed and if it required to be split, this must be advised at time of booking. The single bed size is 2 ft 6 each when split.


Great base for a Lake District break. Very comfortable and cosy. Extremely convenient location within Kendal and easy to find. Good information pack within the property. Our dogs felt very at home too so definitely extremely pet friendly. Would happily recommend and return at some point.
