THE RIVERSIDE HOTEL, Kendal

A converted 18th century tannery, the hotel is situated on the banks of the River Kent, beneath the ruins of the town’s 12th century castle and a short walk away is the centre of this famous Lake District market town with its bustling shops, galleries and museums. The hotel has 58 bedrooms which are spacious and feature TV, telephone, hairdryer, ironing facilities, free WiFi.  The hotel also has a wonderful restaurant and bar and on warmer days guests can take a seat out on the balcony overlooking the river.  Leisure facilities include indoor pool, sauna, steam room, hot tub, gym and exercise studio.

We take the scenic route past Lake Windermere, Thirlmere Reservoir then Bassenthwaite Lake to the Lakes Distiller where a tour and tasting of their own whisky, gin or vodka awaits.  Depart for time at leisure in Keswick which is surrounded by some of the area’s highest and most beautiful peaks.
