Holiday Apartments, Kendal, The Lake District

The house is situated four miles north east of the market town of Kendal on the edge of the Lake District National Park, Cumbria.  The south facing aspect provides superb open views across farm and woodland to the Cumbrian hills.

There is fishing on our own river & tarn, horse riding within a mile, and miles of open fell & countryside to explore and enjoy. 

The Lake District itself has hundreds of events, attractions and activities to tempt you, as well as providing some of the best scenery that the UK has to offer. The central, northern and eastern Lakes are accessible from Shaw End by car, as are the gently rolling summits of the Howgills and Yorkshire Dales further to the east.

  • Self-catered accommodation
  • Luxury apartments set in a lovingly-restored period manor house
  • Perfect for weddings, corporate events, family events and as a luxury holiday retreat
  • Stunning scenery on the edge of Cumbria's Lake District National Park
  • The estate with its Mansion and traditional Lakeland farm buildings also provide varied film locations

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

All is ready at the Big House, the tree is up and decorated, logs stacked, awaiting the first of our Christmas guests.

We are all looking forward to walks from the house; days out on the Lakeland fells; exploring the villages and returning to a cosy log fire.  The Lakeland villages are twinkling with festive lights, gifts, local craft fairs and farmer's markets.

We would like to thank all of our guests, past, present and future for visiting us at Shaw End and for the pleasure of their friendship.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and all the very best for the New Year!
