kendal hostel

Description

Georgian town house home of the Wilson family of Dallam Tower. Formerly Vaux Breweries offices and lead to believe to have one of the best wine cellars in town. First Brewery on highgate and still has a 24 hour licence to serve alcohol. The gardens of this house now form part of the Brewery complex and are a joy to sit in . The last brew was brewed over 50 years ago and at one time they employed over 40 people who would supply over 30 pubs in Kendal alone.
The hostel contains over 15 bedrooms with well equipped kitchen, new dining room and laundry facilities and bike storage. WE also store luggage as we are a good stop off point for Scotland from the south
