Our reviews!

“Amazing food and the staff were so friendly. We would highly recommend visiting The Gateway if you are around the lake district or Kendal. We called in for lunch and sat by the fire. Warm, comfortable and delicious! ”

“The perfect place for a weekend away. Fabulous walks, countryside and scenery. Two minutes from Kendal town centre and 5 minutes from Lake Windermere. The rooms are luxurious and finished to a very high standard. Super comfortable and huge bed. I would highly recommend.”
