The Hylands holiday apartment, for four people, forms part of what has been described as “the very best house in the Kendal area” and one of the finest examples of a private residence from the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 1900s. Built in 1910 by Abraham Pattinson as his personal show house, this truly unique residence offers unrivalled location in terms of location and heritage. Set in over two acres of mature gardens and grounds, with a paddock providing home to two donkeys and a south facing terrace, it offers our guests the chance to enjoy the benefits of being within walking distance of the centre of Kendal and the seclusion and tranquillity of private grounds.
South-facing and with splendid views, the Hylands Holiday Apartment is completely private within the main property with its own area for parking. Downstairs the kitchen/dining room is fitted with electric cooker, microwave, washing machine, table and four chairs, large fridge freezer and a walk-in larder. The living room, south-facing and offering splendid views over the old grass tennis court area, has seating for four, a TV with Freeview and DVD player. The bathroom, also downstairs, is well equipped with a bath and shower over it. There is a large cupboard downstairs for coats and outdoor gear and a porch area with space for boots, walking equipment etc. The main double-bedded bedroom, which is south facing, offers one of the best views in the property, having an aspect over the gardens. The second double-bedded bedroom overlooks the back garden and the paddocks beyond (with two donkeys). Gas central heating provides background warmth (fuel and power included in the price). Duvets, all bed linen and towels provided. Internet access and reception for most mobile networks. Guides to the area. Welcome pack and a complimentary bottle of wine. Visitors to Hylands are assured of a warm welcome by the on-site owners, who offer a wide range and variety of benefits intended to make your stay both special and rewarding.
