1st visit to The Bolt Hole -
The best self catering we have stayed in since we began this type of holiday 17 years ago. Very comfortable and clean, we had a lovely two weeks, and would recommend the apartment.
Reviewer:Peter and Gill | Fri 30th Jun 2017
Lovely base to visit the Lakes -
Beech House Bolt Hole has been a lovely base from which we enjoyed exploring Cumbria and the Lake District. The owners, Hilary and Philip, went out of their way to give us a warm welcome and make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. This is 5 star accommodation which we will recommend to friends and family.
Reviewer:Gill - Cirencester | Fri 16th Jun 2017
Lovely, relaxing stay -
The Bolt Hole was the perfect place to stay whilst visiting family in Cumbria and a great base for walking in the lakes. The accommodation is beautiful and really well equipped - very comfortable bed, amazing kitchen and lovely living room. Plenty of choice with bath/toilet/shower too. Highly recommended.
Reviewer:Mrs. Kirsty Gooderick | Sun 4th Jun 2017
The best self catering we have used-
Without doubt the best self catering cottage we have used over a period of 20 years.Standard of accommodation, facilities supplied within the cottage and especially the very thoughtful Welcome Pack were all superb.

The fireplace was so cosy-
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Beach house Bolt Hole! The house was clean, tidy and very organised, which meant that we knew where to find everything. We were supplied with everything that we needed and the fireplace was so cosy and a lovely touch to the luxurious house! Definitely recommend!
Reviewer:Annabel - Essex | Fri 17th Feb 2017
Lovely place. -
Myself and my husband spent a lovely two days between christmas and new year at Beach house. We were made to feel very welcome from start to finish. The room we stayed in was very clean and had lovely decor. There was a well stocked tea/coffee tray,a hairdryer,iron and board,a heater if needed, clean bedding and fluffy towels. Breakfast was cooked to order and very nice and there was also cereals, fruit/nuts yoghurt jams etc. Thank you for such a lovely relaxing two days.
Reviewer:Anita Jameson | Tue 3rd Jan 2017

Best place we have ever stayed-
We absolutely loved our stay at the Beech house, Hilary was an amazing host and the house is just beautiful. Our room was clean and pretty with a really well stocked tea tray and big comfy bed. The honesty bar is a really good idea and so reasonably priced. Breakfast was delicious with lots of variety and really well cooked. Overall we could not fault our stay with you, thank you for making the weekend special x
Reviewer:Abigail Kay-needham | Mon 12th Dec 2016
Homely and lovely stay -
Located on top of a slope, the Beech house is not too near yet accessible by foot to the main town which offers peace and a great view of the town. Hilary was very welcoming and made us felt at home. She makes really good breakfast and do try the pancakes! The room was immaculate. Everything was thoughtfully put in place and decorated. They even use local Cumbrian bath products which smelled lovely. All in all, an excellent stay.
Reviewer:Quin Hui Chen | Sun 11th Dec 2016
Great Base for Kendal -
we stopped only one night but we were really impressed by the room and the treatment. The room had everything you could wish for and the styling and attention to detail were fabulous. It was a great spot to be just out of town but with easy access to all Kendals hotspots. Topped off with a great breakfast and lots of local detail from Hillary - we would stay again.

A luxurious and welcoming guest house in a fantastic location. We arrived to find we had been upgraded, thank you. The stay was a treat for my wife and this was the icing on the cake. Unfortunately the B&B part if the business retires at the end of the year, but they now have a self catering apartment called the Bolthole instead. We whole heartedly recommend the Beech House.

Reviewer:Michael Gartside | Fri 4th Nov 2016
Lovely warm welcoming well-run bed-and-breakfast.Despite the title it is not a hotel – it is a very good B&B. Hilary is lovely, everything worked well – except the wireless broadband on the top floor – but I just did not have time to ask them to get this fixed – and I am not sure what the problem was – but a detail. Thoroughly recommended.
Hello StephenThanks for your review, I\'m pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sorry to see you had problems with the Wi-Fi. What can be a problem is that the bedroom doors have plaster linings, so to get on line is easier from the stair well where the router is. Also if I know someone is experiencing difficulty, I switch the whole system off and re boot it. This can be the case when there has been a lot of people using it. As I usually say \"it gets rid of the clinkers\". So if you do stay with us again before we close in January, let me know if you have any problems and we will do our best to fix them.Kindest regardsHilary

Reviewer:Sheila Hewitt | Mon 31st Oct 2016
Very nice place in a good position (as long as you\'re fit enough to get up hills!) couldn\'t find many faults apart from the shower being on the small side. They have a nice breakfast selection and we managed to get a spot for parking (allocated to them). They even had some Kendal mint cakes in the room waiting for us with hot chocolate selection and lots of teas! Overall a very nice place!
Hi LukeThanks for the review, it was nice to have you stay. Did you by any chance take your parking permit away with you? If so please could you return it to us as we need them for our other guests and the council don\'t issue new ones.Many thanksHilary

Very Cosy and Lovely Hosts -
The house is very nice with lots of details in the room. Breakfast is very good and all fresh food. The hosts are lovely person. Very recommended, since it is not too far away from the Lake District and easy access to it.
Reviewer:Cybeles Nunziata Muñoz | Mon 26th Sep 2016
Comfortable stay -
Thank you so much for our recent stay. I have already left reviews on TripAdvisor &Booking.com. Your hotel is lovely. Your rooms are beautiful and clean and all individual. I couldn\'t help popping my head into the other open doors! The breakfast was delicious. It was one of the two best we have stayed in in the UK, the other being a boutique hotel in Bath, which certainly had a refreshment tray on par with your own with lots of choice. We wouldn\'t hesitate to recommend your hotel &we would definitely return if we travel back to Kendal.
Reviewer:Paula Roughley | Sun 25th Sep 2016

Tip Top -
I stayed for 3 delightful nights whilst working in the town. Great breakfasts, service and ambience. I loved the little bottle of port in the bedroom - a small glass before bed, what a treat. Couldn\'t have been better except would have been super to have some earl Grey teabags in room!! Delightful, and TIP TOP
Reviewer:Mark Ereira-Guyer | Fri 16th Sep 2016
Compact but with Quality -
We stayed in one of the standard rooms which I must say was \'compact\' but perfectly fine for the short stay. Larger rooms are available should you desire one but this one was fine.What was striking about it was that everything was quality, fittings, furnishings and breakfast.it is a small hotel and the very friendly - good fortune or is it the type of person this type of hotel attracts but the guests were extremely friendly and breakfast took a little longer to complete than expected as we had very social chats with everyone.It is a little of a hill climb from the town centre but it isn\'t very far.There is a little honesty bar for some nibbles or refreshments and a selection of DVD should you need them (the weather can be unpredictable)A most comfortable and enjoyable place to stay. Highly recommended
Reviewer:Stephen Derbyshire | Wed 14th Sep 2016

I would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends.

Excellent stopover -
We stayed for one night, breaking the journey fro Glasgow to London. As a mature couple travelling with adult daughter this was a great choice. We had adjoining rooms on the top floor - well appointed with good selection of toiletries. Ours had a fantastic view and a bookcase of reading material which would have kept us entertained on a longer stay. Friendly welcome set the tone- with good hints on local eateries, spot on as we had an excellent evening. A great touch was the honesty bar - just write down what you have and settle with you bill on checkout. We enjoyed a night cap in the garden as it was a lovely evening but there is also a comfortable lounge. Breakfast was tasty and freshly cooked to order. Can thoroughly recommend the hotel and would certainly stay again.
Reviewer:Jane Brown | Thu 25th Aug 2016

The perfect location gives you the perfect combination of peace and quiet,yet a short stroll into this lovely lakeland Town. Nothing to fault....Just Perfect. Thank you

Hello Kathleen, thanks for your lovely review, I agree with you about the lighting and will make sure it\'s on now the nights are getting longer.

Warm and welcoming -
Greeted warmly by Hilary, I was shown to a beautiful, if compact, bedroom (4 - Low Tenterfell). It was perfect for one night for one person (and, indeed would be so for a longer stay). The bed was massively comfortable and I slept like a log - pretty amazing as I am a terrible insomniac usually. Everywhere is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. As for breakfast, well, what can I say?! I just wish I had a larger appetite as it was so delicious! Location-wise, it is in a great position, although the gradient of the hill(s) would be challenging for those of restricted mobility/puff - but the guidebook in the room helpfully gives instructions for the buses and taxis to get you back up the hill. A very enjoyable stay and I hope to return, for a leisure break next time!

Would stay there again. -
I felt very welcomed on arrival, and throughout my stay. The couple running Beech House are lovely. My room was warm and cosy and also fitted to a high standard, with everything I needed. There was also a kettle and large selection of drinks, and a chocolate and piece of Kendal mint cake left each day - a lovely touch.At breakfast I chose cereal and also had a choice of fruits and nuts and yoghurts to go with it - and the soya milk I\'d asked for whrn I booked was there for me too. I then had a delicious red-hot cooked breakfast, with a pot of tea.Top marks all round.

We have stayed in a large number of B&Bs around the country so we know what is good and what is not. Our stay in Beech House was outstanding. Our room was well furnished with a comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, large TV and a large selection of refreshments (including a carafe of sherry). Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit, local yogurt and good quality juices. The cooked breakfast was based on our personal choice. Our hostess was warm, friendly and made us feel exceptionally welcome. We intend to return.

If you\'re looking for a B&B in Kendal don\'t hesitate. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in, add to that flawless service, excellent breakfasts and additional special touches (a wide range of in room amenities, bath house toiletries and an honesty bar in the lobby) it really is a little touch of luxury at B&B prices.

A good b&b-
We did have one or two problems locating the hotel ,we would say it is a b&b not a hotel ,,but may we add it was a good b&b ,,
Hi SteveThanks for coming to stay and thanks for your feed back. You are right we are definitely a B&B and not an hotel, we are very happy with this category and try to emphasise B&B on the website. At the same time we do try to offer hotel quality rooms, breakfast and service so we hope we are offering the best of both worlds. Sorry again that you had problems locating us, for future reference the directions are on the website or I could have emailed them to you if you let me know you didn\'t have them.Anyway I\'m pleased you enjoyed your stay and I\'m delighted you had lovely weather on Saturday for the wedding celebrations. You\'ll be pleased to know we have got most of the stain out of the carpet from the spilled wine, I think it will go with one more do with Vanish!Thanks again for coming to stay.Kindest regardsHilary & Philip

Beech House -
Excellent accommodation, facilities, and service, but the room was a little cramped.
Hello Mr PorterMany thanks for your lovely review. I must agree the room you had can feel a little cramped, because we put a King Size bed in that room. Thinking people spend more time sleeping in the room than walking around it I choose the bigger bed! Perhaps if you stay with us again you may like to try one of the bigger rooms they are possibly twice the size and with bigger bathrooms too. Worth the extra I think.I\'m sorry we didn\'t meet you as we were on holiday, I\'m sure Jackie did a brilliant job looking after you in our absence. Anyway thanks for coming and we hope we see you again on another visit.Kindest regardsHilary & PhilipBeech HouseKendal

Pleasant Restful Stay at Beech House Hotel in the Lake District -
I had a quick bank holiday getaway to the Lake District via Virgin Trains and stayed just for a night at the cosy and homely Beech House Hotel/Bed &Breakfast.The hosts were warm, friendly and attentive - kudos to Hilary for offering useful tips on how to make the most of a very last-minute short stay in the Lake District (!).At £60 per night, I had a comfortable and clean single Classic Double Room decorated in vibrant colours.Breakfast was also quite welcoming and delicious - more than sufficient for a good start to the day.What I had was essentially a 5-star single room accommodation in a townhouse with a pretty little garden on a hill.Kendal town centre is just a short 5-minute walk down a steep but scenic slope.(From there, take a leisurely walk to the Kendal Castle ruins.It\'s definitely worth the walk.) It takes about 15 minutes to walk to Kendal train station, from which one can travel to Windermere and tour the lakes.Virgin trains stop at Oxenholme train station and a one-way taxi ride costs about £8 to £10 (it costs more on bank holidays).If you don\'t have much to carry with you and are physically fit, the walk up the slope to the hotel from Kendal town might actually be a welcome workout.(A slightly less strenuous short-cut is through Booths Supermarket/Wainwrights Yard.) However, if you have heavy luggage and/or are not physically fit, please take a taxi.(I would also recommend taking a taxi to and from Oxenholme train station.) Being one who is particular about cleanliness, I was pleased that the hotel room was really clean and comfortable.However, the shower area was small and might be a bit of a tight squeeze for a larger person.Other minor details:the towel rail was not heated (I realised this only in the morning);the pedals of the albeit modern rubbish bins were not working;the TV had only one free-view channel;the scrambled eggs could have been runnier.To summarise:it was a verypleasant stay.Mission accomplished!

The room, \"Tenterfell\"was beautiful and large enough to spread out in.The bed was extremely luxurious and comfortable and the ensuite a real treat with heated floor and a shower that really was! The hospitality tray was full of goodies with tea/coffee, and other drink options as well as biscuits. Breakfast took place in a lovely airy room with views over the green and hills. A full breakfast was offered along with choices of porridge, pancakes, cereals etc. We chose the full breakfast and were not disappointed it was delicious with locally sourced bacon and sausage. Our host was delightful and made sure that we had everything we needed without being invasive in any way. A truly delightful stay and we will definitely return for another visit. Marvellous!

Reviewer:Gratianna Lyons | Tue 30th Sep 2014
My wife and I stayed in Beech House for our 20th wedding anniversary, we booked because of the good reviews, which can sometimes not live up to expectations, but in this case they did. We stayed in the Penthouse room, with a wonderful view over Kendal and the hills beyond. The room was immaculate and could not be faulted in any way. It was exactly what we were looking for. We had stayed in Kendal before, Beech Hotel is a 5 minute wakk from the town centre. It is at the top of a hill and the walk back up was fun but not too bad and you can get a taxi if you want. There is loads of restaurant choice, we went to a Thai restaurant (Jintana) and couldn\'t fault that either. What made our stay even more enjoyable was the owners, who could not have done more for us, and as a bonus we had breakfast (which was excellent) with some very friendly other guests. Overall a great weekend that we thoroughly enjoyed and we recommend Beech House to anyone looking to spend a relaxing weekend in the Lakes. Well worth its 5 stars!

What a gorgeous place to stay! Hilary made me feel very welcome from the moment I arrived. I stayed in the Garden room, which was very comfortable, with a lovely bed and plenty of pillows.Breakfast was delicious, particularly the pancakes. It's only a short walk down into town for dinner, and a healthier one back! I hope to come back here soon.

Absolutely loved our weekend away at this beautiful hotel....felt so welcome and the hotel itself is beautiful! There are so many added touches here that make it from the permits to help with parking to all the lovely details in the room and even umbrellas to help with the downpours! It felt like nothing was too much trouble... We arrived late at night but this was no problem. Breakfast was gorgeous. The room was lovely, bed was so perfect I didn't want to get up and the shower was amazing in the bathroom! Would recommend as a place to stay and will definitely be returning myself! Close to the town but nice and quiet! Perfect!

The lounge and breakfast rooms and other areas are maintained to the highest standard.

Wonderful Stay -
We booked this weekend as a celebration for both of us finishing our final university exams. It is a beautiful B and B, the room was really well furnished and presented and little things had been thought of;the little black book to write down restaurant reviews, a selection of DVDs to watch if you fancy a night in. Great location, close to the town centre without being busy. The breakfasts definitely deserve a mention, a lovely selection and perfectly cooked on both days, both host and hostess were lovely and helpful with any request. A lovely stay that we will definitely recommend to friends, family and strangers! Thank you very much.

Reviewer:Dr. Jennifer Steel | Mon 5th May 2014
Easter break -
Enjoyed a very nice Easter break in Kendal.Picked the place off Trip Advisor based on the scores and were not disappointed.Hilary gave us a very good guide to the town on our arrival and showed us to the stupendous penthouse room, being on the top floor with views over Kendal and beyond.The room had everything we could ask for (even a decanter of port topped up each night) and the breakfasts were more than adequate.Kendal itself is a lively little place with lots to see and plenty of good eating places, both during the day and in the evening.Watch out for the long uphill walk back to Beech House each evening from the centre of Kendal - but it's certainly worth it for the accommodaton.
Reviewer:Mr. Mike Schofield | Mon 5th May 2014

Warm Friendly Welcome -
We would definately recommend a stay at the Beech House Hotel,the place itself is spotless, it is a short walk down the hill to the town centre at night time you can walk back up and have a night cap in the Rifleman's Arms which is a couple of hundred yards from the Beech House before you retire for the night and next morning you go for breakfast and get a nice greeting and your breakfast all cooked fresh to order and you can choose the time you would like to have this we will definately go back again.

Reviewer:Mrs. Wendy Plimley | Mon 14th Oct 2013
I have been travelling around the UK on business almost every week for over 20 years, so I've stayed in rather a lot of hotels and guest houses. Beech House was one of the best. It's true that if you're elderly or infirm and you don't have a car, the long walk up the very steep hill from the town might be a bit challenging, but the trip downhill makes up for it! My room was excellent and well equipped with lots of 'extras'. WiFi worked well, which is essential for my work. The only slight note of caution (at least in my room - Greenside) is to make sure you have the temperature in the shower exactly right before you get in. Mine seemed fine but then got steadily hotter and I had to get out rather quickly because the hot and cold taps were the other side of the shower curtain! Breakfast was excellent, and the owners extremely helpful. I was most impressed with the speed at which they arranged to correct a small detail on the website (the distance from the station). I would recommend this B &B to anyone. I stayed at another one nearby a few months ago and it simply didn't compare.

Stayed at beech house for one night on 29th July and had a brilliant time.The whole place was decorated beautifully and was spotlessly clean. The room was lovely and had everything you could need including a big selection of hot drinks and there was even an honesty bar if you felt the need. Good choice of breakfast available, we had the cumbrian breakfast and it was delicious and saw us through to tea time. Beech house isnt too far from kendal town centre but there is a steep hill back up. The hotel does provide full details of buses available if you dont think you can manage it.Overall beech house is well worth its 5 stars and we would definitely go back next time we're in kendal

Hi SuzanneThanks for taking the time to write a review and I'm delighted you gave us such a good one. I thought you'd like to know the new bed arrived for the bedroom you slept in and it is a king size bed with no footboard. So hopefully there will be more room for everyone now. I'm delighted with it it has a lovely dark greay headboard and a really comfy mattress.All the bestHilary

Lovely hotel with a most comfortable well decorated and clean room. Not too far from town, just a 5 min walk. The tasteful lounge was most welcoming for an evening drink and relaxation. Slept very well. Breakfast was great and staff very friendly. Would recommend to anyone.

'If i was a rich man' -
'I'd live there everyday!'Worth every penny, the room was absolutly gorgous and the service was 2nd to none. There was nothing missing from the experience and it's a definate candidate for our next stay in the lakes. Many thanks

A comfortable stay -
I slept better than I do at home in the comfy bed with super soft pillows. Hilary was very cheerful and helpful in helping us to decide where to go for a walk and the restaurant folder made choosing our evening meal a breeze!
Reviewer:Kirsty Ryder | Sun 16th Sep 2012
Outstanding in every way! -
My husband and I were lucky enough to pick up a cancellation at Beech House for our two nights stay in Kendal. It was all and more that we could have asked for. Our room had been upgraded and we enjoyed the splendid view out over the town to the hills from the spacious and elegant front bedroom. All the special touches were there, from a decanter of port in our room to a magnificent bathroom, a superb breakfast and private car parking, not easily come by in this town! Hilary even found some old maps of Kendal for us to peruse to help us in our family history research. To top it all the sun shone throughout the two days and completed a delightful and memorable experience. We know exactly where we will return to when next we visit Kendal - the lovely Beech House. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.
Many thanks for the lovely review, it was a pleasure having you stay and really interesting hearing about the family connection to Colin Croft.I hope we see you again sometime.All the bestHilary

Bank Holiday -
I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Beech House which is conveniently located in Kendal and a useful base for visiting the Lakes, or celebrating with local friends as we were.From the moment we walked in to the hallway we were made to feel welcome.There is a luxurious feel to the accommodation which is immaculate, but exceptionally comfortable and homely at the same time. We had the Penthouse which had a lovely view of the distant hills (through the mist!) and was a welcome retreat from our wet walks.The complimentary port was a bonus!Excellent cooked to order breakfast with plenty of choice served in elegant surroundings.Lovely!Parking was also provided which was a bonus.Definitely worth a return visit.

Beech House, Kendal -
The staff were very helpful and friendly. Everything was explained clearly. My room was lovely and clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good although a few more cooked breakfast choices for vegetarians would be good. It would also be nice to see them using locally produced food, but good that it was supporting local restaurants.
Many thanks for your review, we always appreciate it when people take time out to do one. We very much enjoyed having you stay with us. Perhaps I don't make enough noise about it, but we do use mostly, locally produced food. Our bacon sausage and eggs have all been specially selected for quality by us, they all come form local farms and are truly delicious. Other than the full Cumbrian breakfasts and the sausage and/or bacon sandwiches, I think everything else on the menue is suitable for vegetarians, including the homemade pancakes with Maple Syrup, lemon & sugar or cheese, plain or cheese omlettes, tomatoes on multi seeded toast and Porridge, we often have mushrooms too and salmon by special request.I hope that suits most vegetarians. Thanks again for your comments, we found your review helpful.

Beech House Hotel is very welcoming and comfortable, with a lovely breakfast - good choice of food and high quality.The situation is close to the centre of Kendal, though up a steep hill for those arriving by public transport. It was well worth the climb though!

Enjoyable Stay -
We spent last weekend at the Beech House Hotel.Although the weather was poor, the hotel brightened up our weekend.Our room was very comfortable and decorated to a high standard.The hotel was full of character.Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice.There was a bar with drinks and snacks if you wanted them and there was plenty of information on the surrounding area, where to go and things to see etc.The walk into town only takes 5 minutes but the walk back takes longer due to the hill - it is a challenge!!We would definitely recommend Beech House Hotel.

A must! -
A very pleasurable stay. Location excellent for public transport, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing etc. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The deluxe room was to a very high standard and comfortable although disappointed that the roll-top bath was very small, my husband could hardly fit in it. Lovely personal touches throughout.
Reviewer:Anthony Forde | Sun 29th Apr 2012
Affordable luxury -
My colleague and I stayed at Beech House for one night - we were disappointed we couldn't stay longer!The rooms were very luxurious and contained everything you could possibly ever need, and we were made to feel so welcome. The rooms were spotlessly clean. The breakfast menu was vast and what we had was delicious. I travel a lot on business and am usually disappointed when I arrive at my hotel as they usually don't live up to expection (or as they were described on the web) - not the case with Beech House, it was everything they said it would be and so much more. I stayed in the Penthouse and will definitely return with my husband.

This B+B is an absolute gem, which i would recommend to anyone. On arrival we were upgraded to the penthouse room, which was very spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. There's no curfew and you have keys to the front door so you can come and go as you please. The breakfast was delicious, with plenty to choose from, we had the full english which i couldn't fault. The hotel is Just a few minutes walk into the center of town, which is lovely, with a good variety of pubs and restaurants. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to the beech house.

However, still was wonderful and would definitely stay there again.Thank you very much
