We’re a small town with a big heart; our community will welcome you with open arms

Kendal is packed with intriguing history and surrounded by spectacular fells and green spaces. Our streets are alive with eateries, coffee shops, traditional pubs and hip bars.

Accommodation in Kendal

It is wise to book your accommodation well ahead of the Festival – it gets booked up very quickly in the centre of Kendal. There is a great range of options available for every budget from Kendal's vibrant youth hostel to four-star hotels.

The "Visit Kendal" website provides detailed information on accommodation options - hotels, self-catering, B&Bs, hostels and camping and caravan sites.

Sizergh Caravan & Camping (approx 4 miles from Kendal) will be open for vans and tents (weather permitting) for the weekend of the Festival. The site has a fantastic farm shop on site. Low Sizergh Farm, Helsington, Kendal, LA8 8AE - 07436232574

We also recommend looking at self-catering properties, guest houses, and hotels in the Lake District and combining our Festival with the spectacular scenery of our local fells and lakes.

The Festival runs Thursday afternoon through to all day Sunday - so why not stay overnight and take Monday off!

We kindly ask that Festival attendees are considerate of local residents and businesses. Please only park campervans in approved locations, book in advance and be careful never to block roads and gateways.
