A Warm Welcome In The Lakes
We really couldn't fault Balcony House. The room was as warm and welcoming as the hosts and we couldn't think of anything we might have needed that wasn't already provided. Breakfast was excellent and we were even offered a lift into Kendal in the evening.

We left in the morning hoping for an excuse to return before too long!

Lovely B&b
We've had a great stay at the Balcony House. The owners are really nice people and didn't even mind us accidentally locking the front door :-) We've followed their advice to go and visit the South Lakes animal park in winter, which was great. Room was very tidy, tasty breakfast, nicely decorated lounge in true christmas spirit and great to have free access to nearby leisure centre's swimming pool and sauna.

Great Place To Stay
We stayed two nights bed and breakfast early December. The house is decorated to a high standard, and our room was very comfortable and clean, with lots of nice touches you would not get in many B+B's.

Brian and Mandy were very friendly and helpfull. Brian even gave us a lift to Bootleggers Venue.

Mandy had put out the Christmas decorations and that also added to the experience.

The breakfast was plentifull and tasty.

We would recomend Balcony House to family, friends and anyone who needs a place to stay in the Lake district.

We hope to stay again soon!.

Perfect B&b Experience
Balcony House was an absolutely lovely place to stay. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kendal and the Lakes. Mandy and Brian were so friendly and hospitable, and the room was perfect. Beautifully decorated and full of thoughtful details you don't normally see in a B&B - even bathrobes were provided. The entire place was spotlessly clean as well and breakfast was prepared to order by Mandy and so delicious. I don't have a single complaint and would definitely stay again if ever in Kendal - thank you Mandy & Brian!

An Excellent Overnight Stay.
The hotel is very well appointed and comfortable, however what makes the establishment excellent are the hosts whose generosity of spirit and attention to detail are outstanding. All our dealings with the establishment both before and during our stay were conducted efficiently and effectively. If that were not enough the breakfast was simply delicious.

Enjoyable Stay
We had a very nice time staying at Balcony House. The house is lovely and comfortable with a really homely feel. Everywhere was lovely and clean and the breakfasts were great. Good job we only stayed 3 nights or my husband would be the size of a house on the full English breakfast. Mandy and Brian made us feel very welcome and we would have no hesitation recommending this B&B to others.

Lovely Relaxed Stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Balcony House, made to feel very welcome and the room itself was lovely and very well equipped.

Use of the local hotel's pool and spa facilities was a real boost after a long drive, and breakfast in the morning was fantastic! Make sure to ask to see the hens that laid the eggs :)

Thanks for a lovely stay, warmly recommended.

We stayed at Balcony House for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. Both Brian and Mandy can't do enough to make sure you enjoy your stay. We stayed in the room with the 4 poster bed which was really cosey - gorgeous room. The house was beautifully decorated throughout and Mandy's breakfasts are to die for! We can also recommend the boat rides at lake Windermere (£7 each for the island hoping boat) and lots of lovely little coffee shops in Kendal. 5 star bed and breakfast. Michael and Danielle

We had a great time at Balcony House - from the friendly welcome on arrival, to the very comfortable beds (with lots of pillows - very important!) and the delicious breakfasts - particularly the extremely yummy bacon.

Carus is renowned for many things but above all it is the friendliness of the club that keeps people coming back. As the club grows, the course improves, the facilities advance and the driving range is built, the key constant for us is that the welcome for members and visitors alike is as warm as ever. Come find out for yourself. Beautifully situated par 70 parkland course with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. At times testing with the rivers kent, mint and sprint meandering through the course, it offers challenges to every level of golfer.
