Full description
A stylish and contemporary restoration of a renowned Kendal pub, with a cave bar, a plush cinema room, and a boutique garden with hot tub, in walking distance of the ancient town centre.

The Black Swan Manor is an ultra-luxurious group retreat, stylishly transformed from a well-known pub in the heart of Kendal's historic centre.

Sleeping up to 16 guests, accommodation is generously spaced over four storeys, with an array of sensory delights that mean you'll be staging the most glamorous lock-in imaginable!

The ground floor is home to a huge, welcoming space that drips with style, expertly crafted from the original bar areas. Along with plenty of sumptuous seating for everyone, here you'll discover a large TV with a built-in Sonos sound system, and an elegant kitchen area that's sure to spark arguments over who gets to cook.

Congregate around the sociable dining table for that first-night feast, clinking glasses of bubbles over lively conversation. On summer evenings, carry your post-dinner tipples out to the boutique garden, where you'll find a hot tub in prime position for catching the last rays of the sun.

In the mood for a movie? Head down to the stunning basement cinema room and take your place. There's also a snooker room for competitive spirits, and a glorious cave bar with an enchanted fairytale feel, for those who want to continue chatting over drinks!

When it's time to turn in, seven comfortable bedrooms will be waiting on the first and second floors. Each room is individually styled and lovingly furnished, with rustic wooden beams adding charm and character to your peaceful surroundings.  

If you're quick, you can claim the magnificent four-poster room for yourself... but don't worry if you miss out, since there are also five gorgeous kingsize rooms (four of which can be made into twins on request) and a family room with two downy kingsize beds.

Three of the bedrooms boast en-suite bathroom facilities, and with a further two indulgent bathrooms on hand, there'll be no awkward queues to worry about during your stay.

Linger all together over morning coffee and a delicious home-cooked breakfast, as you discuss your plans for the day.

Those who don't feel like straying too far will love The Black Swan Manor's close proximity to Kendal's bustling town centre, which is teeming with pubs, restaurants, and independent shops to weave in and out of.

There's plenty of history and heritage to explore with visits to Kendal's fascinating museum and castle, or head into the mesmerising Lake District National Park for unparalleled scenes of nature.  

In fact, the vast, shimmering Lake Windermere is just eight miles away, so why not pack a picnic and make a day of it? Surrounded by your favourite people, and with that hot tub and cave bar to look forward to by evening, it's hard to imagine anything lovelier.
