Castle Green Hotel

Castle Green Lane, Kendal, LA9 6RG
Castle Green Hotel Outside

Whilst it is conveniently located for Kendal town centre, the M6, and the southern Lake District, the Castle Green Hotel has so much to offer its residents that you won’t want to stray too far from its grounds. This former Victorian mansion house is oozing with character, set amongst landscaped gardens with views out towards Kendal Castle. Here you will find an award winning restaurant, lounge bar, pub, and health and fitness centre complete with a pool, gym, steam room, and spa.

The hotel is just ten-miles from the shore of Windermere, and just over a mile from the centre of Kendal. It is a ten-minute drive from the M6, and is a great place for those seeking to explore the southern Lake District fells, such as those around Grizedale Forest. The hotel holds regular events throughout the year, including beer and gin festivals, so it’s worth checking in advance and taking this into consideration when making your booking.
