Newman House’s sleeping accommodation is split over the first and second floors with bed linen, towels and toiletries included all that is left for you to do is relax.  On the first floor is a double bedroom with delightful window seat and en-suite WC, two double bedrooms with en-suite shower and WC and a further two double bedrooms with shared access to a family shower room.   Following the stairs up to the top floor you will find a great space for the kids to make their own, with a large bedroom holding two comfortable double beds and a further double room, both sharing a delightful bathroom with stand-alone bath and walk in shower.

Set within the lively market town of Kendal, Newman House is perfectly placed to explore the local arts scene and restaurants but also to get out in nature and enjoy all the spectacular countryside from the neighbouring Lake District to the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Arnside and Silverdale.

There is so much to explore in the beautiful Cumbrian landscape, with bike trails, hikes and endless historic, cultural spots to visit.  Just a short distance from Newman House is the National Trust’s Sizergh Castle with 1600 acres of estate grounds to roam including ancient woodlands, wetlands and wildflowers.  Along with a great on-site café why not take the family to the wild play area and try your hand on climbing walls, balance beams and rope swings or take a tour of the Medieval manor where you will see the spectacular tower bedrooms with historic Inlaid Chamber.

Take a drive to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to take in the breath-taking limestone scenery, sweeping valleys, waterfalls and ancient woodlands.  Grab a pair of hiking boots and take one of the many trails to explore the area to its fullest.

A visit to Kendal should not go by without a visit to the Lake District with its most famous spot Windermere, under an hour away.  There are activities to keep everyone busy, including sailing, horse-riding, kayaking and hill walking.  Choose from taking in the stunning Lake Windermere, by air or water from a breath-taking Gyroplane experience to a relaxing ride on one of the many steamers available at the pier at Bowness-on-Windermere.  Or stay on dry land and hire a local bike and enjoy some of the western shore cycling routes of Windermere and Grizedale Forest which are particularly good for family-friendly routes.  

For a trip to the beach, Morecambe Bay is well worth a visit, just thirty-five minutes in the car, with a sweeping coastline and views of the spectacular Lakeland Mountains, a perfect spot to sit on the promenade with fish and chips and take in the view.  Afternoon tea can be taken at the iconic Midland Hotel for delicious cakes and sandwiches, and it would be rude not to take a photo opportunity at the statue of funny man and local hero, Eric Morecombe, found on the promenade.

The beautiful nearby area of Arnside and Silverdale offers endless opportunities to get out and explore the outdoors.  Heralded as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, take a drive to Arnside to access the Information Centre that will lead you to the best walks, cycle routes and spots to enjoy the wealth of wildlife, superb walks and stunning scenery.

About Lake District

The scenic splendour of the Lake District makes it a must-visit for fans of the great outdoors. Ullswater Valley is stunning, sheltering a beautiful lake hidden among towering fells, while the surrounding area is relatively undeveloped compared with other parts of the Lake District. Take the Ullswater Steamer Ferry for a unique perspective of the valley, enjoying its remote and peaceful feel.

When staying at one of our fantastic Lake District cottages, you'll likely want to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

Newman House has something for everyone, from adults to kids young and old. The basement area offers a great space to retreat to on a rainy day, with home cinema and games room where many an hour can be passed at the snooker table.  Kids will love splashing in the hot tub outside, or just relaxing in the comfortable bedrooms with flat screen TV’s and WiFi on hand to slow the pace when necessary.

The local area has much to keep young ones happy.  There is a fantastic climbing wall centre at Lakeland Climbing Centre in Kendal offering excellent clip and climb opportunities for all abilities.  The Kendal Museum holds a number of natural history artefacts with fossil rubbing opportunities and a children’s area with dressing up box and even an historic rocking horse.

Not to be missed is a visit to the famous adventure playground of Brockhole on Lake Windermere set within stunning historic gardens it boasts a wealth of lakeside activities from canoeing to boat-hire.  Those wishing to keep off the water can try their hand at Krazy Karts, Archery and even indoor caving. For smaller children the options are endless with woodland Faerie trails, mini-golf and mini tractors, and plenty of cake in the on-site café for a much-needed sugar rush.

If you are looking for a day at the beach then Morecambe Bay is perfect for an ice cream on the promenade.  Cool off in the sea or head to Happy Mount Water Park, where you can choose from the free splash park, crazy golf or a stroll around the ornamental gardens. A great spot for young families.

Just a half hour drive from Kendal will take you to the Capernwray Diving Centre, a former flooded quarry, it’s now host to an inland scuba diving centre that offers beginner and experienced scuba diving lessons in crystal clear waters, including an underwater cave.  If diving is not your thing then open water swimming is also available.  A stunning spot to enjoy the water on the edge of the Lake District.
