The best ideas for a staycation adventure at Days Inn Kendal

26 July 2019

Days Inn Kendal is the perfect place to spend your staycation in the North West. It is conveniently located in between two of the UK’s top national parks - the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.

Here are some of the best staycation ideas near Days Inn Kendal.

1. Kendal Museum

Kendal Museum is a short distance from our Days Inn hotel and is a great way for the whole family to spend the afternoon.

The museum is comprised of historical, geological and animal exhibits, which the museum prides itself on updating regularly for visitors.

2. Abbot Hall Art Gallery

Another great stop in Kendal’s town centre is Abbot Hall Art Gallery, a unique display of 16th to 19th-century art in a beautiful Georgian house.

Check out the website for details on their seasonal and permanent exhibits. This summer, the main event is Ruskin, Turner & the Storm Cloud, which features over 100 words spread around 6 galleries.

3. Levens Hall

Just a 20-minute drive from Days Inn Kendal is Levens Hall, a 17th-century Elizabethan house and garden.

Originally a 13th century fortified Pele tower, Levens Hall developed over time into a beautiful house, with each generation leaving behind a piece of history behind in its interior.

Stroll around one of the finest gardens in England before stopping for a bite to eat in the kitchen, which prides itself on fine food with a history.

For the children, there is an abundance of activities, ranging from the Willow Labyrinth maze, a playground and indoor activities to get kids of all ages involved.

4. Sizergh Castle

Another property of historical significance local to Days Inn Kendal is Sizergh Castle, a beautiful medieval house and estate, now run by the National Trust.

The castle still remains home to the Stickland family, and you’ll find their collection of art of family portraits on the walls, alongside a stunning collection of furniture, Jacobean relics and displays largely untouched for you to experience the house in all its glory.

Explore the vast estate and gardens with a number of trails to local landmarks, pubs and villages, with some of the wider estate being suitable for some longer dog-friendly walks.

5. Yorkshire Dales

You need not venture too far from your hotel at Days Inn before you reach one of the two local national parks. The Yorkshire Dales is recognised as one of the UK’s finest examples of limestone scenery.

Although the Yorkshire Dales in itself spans much of the North, there is an abundance of things to do in this national park that are local to our hotel location at Days Inn Kendal.

See the map for things to do in the east of the Dales near Days Inn Kendal, such as Fairfield Mill, The Howgills with beautiful Cautley Spout waterfall and Holme Open Farm.

6. The Lake District

Many people come up to the area of Kendal to explore one of the finest national parks in the UK, the Lake District.

Among some of the best activities to do in the Lake District is a Lake Windermere cruise. You can get some breathtaking views of the hills, wildlife and vegetation surrounding England’s longest lake.

Wrapping up

Days Inn Kendal is a great location to explore national parks and local surroundings.

Book with us for a great night’s sleep after all of your Cumbrian staycation adventures.
