About Us

Kenilworth is a grand Victorian house built from traditional Lakeland slate. The house has been thoroughly refurbished and redecorated and we are confident that even in the coldest weather guests staying with us will be warm and comfortable.

Wherever possible original features have been retained such as the tiled floor and stained glass of the entrance porch, which leads into the spacious hallway with it’s original open pitch pine staircase.

All our guest bedrooms are Ensuite and have:

Egyptian Cotton Bedlinen

Egyptian Cotton Christy Towels

Samsung Flat Screen Televisions & Smart TV’s in our King & Large Double Rooms

We also offer you free collection/drop off to/from Windermere train station whenever possible


We have a plentiful supply of literature describing local attractions, and walking and touring maps of the area which may be borrowed.

Our hearty breakfasts are served in the ground floor dining room. Full English breakfast is included of course, although a lighter version or vegetarian alternative is also available. We serve local produce (the sausage is made by the local butcher) and the free-range eggs are delivered from the local farm. A full vegetarian and gluten free menu is also available upon request.

Holly Road is a leafy side road just two minutes’ walk to the local shops, cafes and restaurants. We are happy to make suggestions, depending on likes/dislikes.  We are a 15 minute walk(1 mile) away from Lake Windermere itself.

We have some private off-road parking and there is free parking on Holly Road itself.

We are also happy to help plan your days’ activities, whether you are visiting the area for the first time, or are amongst the many British or overseas visitors who return to stay with us on a regular basis.
