Lyndhurst Kendal

Welcome to The Lyndhurst Guest House, Kendal.

A traditional late-Victorian home from home located in the vibrant market town of Kendal, also known as “The Gateway to the Lakes”

Lyndhurst is a friendly, inclusive, and green guest house located in South Lakeland.

Lyndhurst loves to make a difference where it can. Surrounded by the beautiful Lake District, we are inspired everyday to do what we can to protect our lush landscape. Recycling, and green energy are just some of the ways we’re doing our bit.

The Rooms

Cosy, comfortable, and ensuite rooms ensure you are at ease for the duration of your stay. We have a selection of single, double, and super king sized beds. Many of our rooms overlook the river. Each of our rooms are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, a TV. There is free high speed Wi-Fi throughout the Guest House, free parking on the street. Should there be anything else you need, you are always welcome to ask.


Kendal is a market town based in South Lakeland. Often described as “The Gateway to the Lakes”, it makes a wonderful base to explore all of the Lake District without being confined to being seasonal or a “tourist trap”.

Kendal is vibrant with arts, culture, and events year round and allows guests for a proper taste of Lakeland life. Whether you want to explore the historical Abbot Hall Art Gallery, immerse yourself in the Brewery Arts Centre, or indulge in the 1657 chocolate house there’s plenty to do within a 10 minute walk away.

If you’d like to explore further afield, Kendal makes a good base for visiting well known Lake District spots. Windermere is accessible by a short train, drive, or bus ride. If you are looking to put your walking boots on, there’s plenty of famous and lesser known walks alike near Kendal depending on your mood. Please do ask Yvonne for recommendations.


We think Lyndhurst is truly a home from home, but don’t just take it from us. Here’s what our guests have had to say…

“Great hospitality from Yvonne, a very friendly, helpful and entertaining hostess. Nice homely accommodation in a convenient location and less than ten minute walk to the town centre. Delicious breakfast to set you up for the day. We had a lovely time and have happy memories of Yvonne and Lyndhurst and highly recommend anyone visiting Kendal to take a serious look at this guest house.”

Adrian R

“The room was spacious, the bed gigantic, the shower nice, clean and warm and the views at the river were lovely.”

Arthur K

“Yvonne, the lovely landlady, does her best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The decor is quirky, the breakfasts delicious and the rooms very clean and well stocked with tea, coffee and home-made biscuits. Will definitely revisit when we're next in the area.”
