About Caroline Hodgson

Caroline purchased Drysalters apartment as a rental business in 2009. After living in Kendal for most of my life I wanted other people to enjoy this beautiful historic market town as we have done over the years.

Caroline Hodgson purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Caroline Hodgson chose Kendal

Purely it's fantastic location!!

The lovely views from the property and the easy access to everywhere together with the allocated private parking.

The property is situated in a conservation area of Kendal. Close enough for all local amenities and a 5-10 minute stroll into town. Located within a private cul-de-sac within a quiet area but with several amenities just around the corner.

What makes this apartment unique

Location and easy access to all areas of 'The Lakes'.

Allocated private parking adjacent to the apartment.

Owner organises all aspects from initial booking, meeting guests upon arrival/departure. I personally look after the property and do not use other agents therefore ensuring that everything is properly organised and the cleaning is all done by myself ensuring a high standard of cleanliness.

The owner lives within close proximity and is therefore available to deal with any queries that should arise during a guests stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kendal railway station, where the local train service runs from early morning to late at night for visits to Windermere, also the Main Coast Line. There is a direct link to Manchester Airport which takes approximately 90 minutes. The Lake District National Park is only 3 miles away and there are lots of day trips and things to explore including the Beatrix Potter exhibition and her original home and the Lakeland Steamers to view the Lakes in all their glory.

Perfect for visiting the Lake District

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation is absolutely first class. It is so well maintained that it looks brand new and the quality of the finishing and furnishings are exceedingly high in our opinion. The owner Caroline gave us a brilliant welcome and we would have to say her customer care is probably amongst the best we have come across, she even phoned the next day to make sure everything was to our liking and just to check if she could help us with anything. We found it an excellent base for touring the Lakes and would not hesitate to recommend this property to our friends and family. We found good restaurants and pubs only a short distance from the flat. The flat is in a very quiet and well presented area. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the area. I’m confident that Caroline’s focus to detail will ensure this property will remain to be well maintained and kept to the current high standard.

The flat was amazing and very luxurious.

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very clean and well provisioned with everything you would have at home. Lovely touches included, meet and greet by the lovely owner, a bottle of wine on arrival, breakfast cereals, tea, coffee and milk all provided. Bedding was extremely comfy and cosy on those cooler nights.

There was lots of literature about the Lake District and places to go.

Car parking close to flat and in a secure area.

Predominantly spent our time in Grasmere, beautiful walks and fantastic gingerbread.

I would highly recommend this luxury flat, close to good food and drink and easy drive or train to Windermere.
