The cottage was very well presented with many thoughtful touches to provide a lovely experience. It was very well located for the town amenities and for getting out and about by road.

We had a very comfortable stay at the Chimes. The allocated parking space and close walk into Kendal were great benefits. The rest of the Lakes are really easy to access from here too.

Perfect location, very well equipped. All appliances were good quality, simple and easy to use. Top quality linen and towels, WiFi access perfect. Very good value! Would love to return some time in the future and have already recommended to family and friends.

The Chimes was a brilliant place to stay and just what we were looking for- it was cosy, clean, well-furnished and we enjoyed being so close to the centre of Kendal. Will definitely recommend!!

Lovely little cottage in an ideal location, just a short walk down the hill into the town. It felt cosy, was clean and had everything we needed.

We thought the cottage was really cute - we called it our dolls' house! Small but with everything we needed. It was well located and we were able to walk into the town centre. It was good to have tea/coffee and milk there when we arrived. We also found the instruction manual handy for lighting the lovely fire in the living room. We appreciated the other little touches like slippers and the torch in the porch.

Lovely cosy cottage in a good location a short walk to Kendal town centre and shopping area. Everything provided such as washing up liquid, sponge, dishwasher tablets, tea towel etc. Great location not far from the Lake District. The owner text me to check if I was warm enough and was very helpful. Peaceful location and can hear the church chimes. Would highly recommend this cottage as a good base to visit the Lake District.

The Chimes is a cute and cosy cottage that creates a great environment to relax in and enjoy an easy holiday in the Lakes. Whilst filled with the characteristics of an old cottage, it had all the modern comforts.

This was a lovely cottage, clean and well equipped, with lovely views of the town and countryside. Kendal town centre is easily within walking distance, although a steep climb back.

This accommodation was excellent for two people, well laid out kitchen/living space with everything that was needed, including warmth and quiet. The location was ideal - a short walk into Kendal and a short walk to the fells; a short drive to the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, The Ribble Valey, the Trough of Bowland and Morecambe Bay.

One of the best holiday rentals we've stayed in. Beautifully decorated. Comfy bed - very important for a good holiday. Fairly central for shopping etc. And everything we needed was supplied. 10 out of 10.

We have stayed here twice and we will be back. I love this tiny but very comfortable cottage. Well equipped and very clean! So comfy! It is so relaxing. I plan to come back again for a peaceful holiday. Bed room very pretty and modern bath room. Warm and cosy in the winter. My favourite self catering holiday rental. Other places I have stayed recently have not lived up to the chimes. thank you for for providing a lovely little house to escape to!!

Stayed here for the weekend for some relaxation and rest! Beautiful cute cottage with everything you could need. Stunning views from the windows, close to the town for a chilly wander then back to the cosy comforts of this cottage. An excellent find!
