Description

Enjoying an ideal location, just a 5-minute walk from the centre of Kendal, Bel Air is perfect for families and couples who enjoy having everything right on their doorstep. Set back from the main road, with gardens to the front and rear, this semi-detached, 1930’s period property has been lovingly furnished by the owners into a comfortable and beautifully presented holiday home. Downstairs is a comfortable and light living room which overlooks the rear garden. There is a separate formal dining room and a beautiful, well-equipped kitchen with TV and breakfast area. Upstairs are three well-presented bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Kendal is just 6 miles from the M6 and its accessibility is just one of the reasons that it is regarded as the southern gateway to the Lake District. Kendal is a traditional market town with a market charter dating back to the 12th-century. It also has a good selection of shops ranging from popular high street stores to more individual shops selling clothing, footwear, crafts, gifts and homewares. There are also plenty of coffee shops, tearooms, cafés, pubs and restaurants. For families there is also a leisure centre, theatre, cinema and playground.
Whilst in Kendal why not visit the 12th-century castle ruins and museum. Art lovers will enjoy the Abbot Hall Art Gallery, which holds major art exhibitions throughout the year. The Museum of Lakeland Life is also located here in what used to be the halls stable block. Other attractions include the remains of Castle Howe, the Kendal Castle and Friends Meeting House, which houses the Quaker Tapestry. Whilst there is much to see and do in Kendal itself, Bel Air is also very well placed for exploring the south and central Lake District. Close to the Lake District National Park border it is only 8 miles from Windermere, 13 miles from Ambleside and 20 miles from Coniston and Grizedale, although Keswick is slightly further, being 30 miles away.
It goes without saying that walking and hiking are very popular activities and coupled with the stunning scenery makes it one of the nation’s most popular destinations for those who love the outdoors. Other activities available locally include cycling, golf and of course there is an abundance of water-based activities. Whether you are a regular visitor to the Lake District or a first time visitor, Kendal has something to offer everyone and its accessibility makes it popular all year round. Shop and restaurant ¼ mile, pub 200 yards.

About the local area

Situated to the South of the Lake District, and only a short drive from the sea, Kendal is especially well placed to cater for everyone's holiday needs. Kendal is often seen as the Southern gateway to the Lake District, being only around nine miles from Windermere and around 30 miles from Keswick.

The other lakes are all within an hour or two's travelling by car from the town, as are locations for walks and rambles, both gentle and demanding. The town is home to a fine selection of shopping arcades, can boast two castles, two museums, a host of historical buildings and bridges, fine restaurants, a multitude of public houses, and views that would please the most demanding photographer including the nearby ruin of Kendal Castle.

The pleasant Lakeland village of Underbarrow lies to the west of the town of Kendal and sits at the foot of Helsington Barrow, a limestone ridge rising to around 700 feet. Underbarrow stands at the centre of a network of roads linking Kendal to Crosthwaite in the Lyth Valley, Newby Bridge and Ulverston and the village of Crook to Levens making it idea to explore all the surrounding areas with ease.

Further west is the small village of Crosthwaite which is an ideal point from which to explore the Windermere and South Lakes area and, with walks right from the door, it will please keen walkers and hikers.
