The Glen Guest House
Ranked #5 of 43 Kendal B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 October 2017

We loved this B&B. Our room was very comfortable with a very modern spacious bathroom. Breakfasts were first class. A wide choice of cereals and juices plus a bowl of mixed fresh fruit and how refreshing to find somewhere supplying bananas to have at breakfast. Most hotels do not do this! The freshly cooked breakfasts were also very good. The B&B is located conveniently for, the local station a 5 minute walk down the hill with trains to Kendal, Windermere and of course many other locations throughout the country, and also the local pub a 2 minute walk across the road. The hosts have thought of every detail to help make your stay more comfortable and we hope to stay again sometime in the future.

Room Tip: Our room was excellent and I suspect all rooms are of a high standard.

We stayed in the double suite which had been recently refurbished including a new bathroom. The room was a very good size with a large suite area. There was a very good selection of hot beverages provided in the room. Breakfast was a pre order system for both food and time.

Only a short walk from Oxenholme station and to the nearest pub The Station Inn, which is also excellent and does good food. Be careful on the pavements though as they are very narrow and cars belt along that road! The guest house is very comfortable with good quality furnishings including in my room (2) an excellent new shower. The owners are very friendly and the cooked breakfast ample and flavoursome. Highly recommended.

After looking for a guest house to accommodate two adults, a toddler and a 9 month old baby, we came accross The Glen.
From the moment we stepped into the house we were made to feel welcome, as if nothing would be too much trouble.
When we booked we had selected our check in time would be 4pm, it was more like 4:30 by the time we had found the correct road, however Bill was there waiting for us, offering to help carry bags and giving us a brief introduction to the house.
We had a family room, which was lovely, clean and spacious with a very well stocked tea and coffee selection. There are mini tubs of milk supplied in the room and just down stairs guests can help themselves to fresh milk and bottled water.
Toiletries are good too, even make up remover pads were supplied in the bathroom.
A bottle opener and a little pair of scissors are also in the room, and a selection of toys, which were very popular with our 3 year old!
The tv has all the normal freeview channels and a dvd player is provided, which we used quite a lot.
Breakfast was perfectly cooked every morning and there are a selection of cereals, fruit and toast that guests help themselves to.
Each morning we took a walk up The Helm before breakfast.
Location wise, The Glen was ideal for us to explore the Lake District.
We had a very lovely stay and will definitely return and have no hesitation recommending this Guest House to anyone.

Myself and my partner booked 3 nights here visiting my brother and nephew. We have stayed before and knew when visiting again we would come back.
We were running late due to part of the M6 being closed and turned up up past 10pm and Pauline was waiting for us. Our room was lovely and the bed so comfy. The shower was also perfect. After a long adventure a lovely hot powerful shower is what you need.
Pauline is so accommodating and will make every effort to make your stay wonderful.
