The Lake District

The Hyning Estate is located on the edge of The Lake District & Yorkshire Dales National Parks.

Easy to get to and close to the area's main tourist attractions yet away from the Lakeland traffic hotspots, the Estate is accessed from a long private driveway which opens up to reveal extensive grounds with mature planting surrounded by farm and parkland in a beautiful and very peaceful setting.

The owners, Jan and Richard live on the Estate and welcome you to their “Grand Design”. We have a comprehensive library of books and guides and will do all we can to help you make the most of this spectacular and unique location whatever your ages or interests.

Flexible accommodation

Two pairs of cottages can be linked together so whether you just need a quiet secluded hideaway for a short break, something larger for the family holiday, or a venue for a get together then we can help. We have well equipped kitchens and can provide the catering for parties & larger groups (all sourced locally to order).

The Carriage House has been designed for those staying with someone with low mobility and The Old Forge is also on ground level.

Fully licensed Bar & Courtyard Patio

Catering for Family Parties & Groups

International TV & Radio channels

Wonderfully warm in Winter

Linked Cottages for larger groups


Kendal is the gateway to The Lake District and is a vibrant local community. You'll find everything you need in the way of cafes, restaurants, shops & supermarkets plus the leisure Centre and the famous Kendal Brewery Arts Centre which hosts live gigs, films, theatre & more. Windermere and Ambleside are just down the road and our proximity to the M6 and A66 means that Keswick and the Western Lakes are no more than an hour away ... or maybe you'd like to visit Kirkby Lonsdale or Ingleton in the Dales ... less than 30 minutes away. This is a great location for a holiday whatever your ages or interests - you'll never run out of new things to do.


The Hyning Estate has its own private (1/2 mile) driveway and landscaped grounds which are illuminated in the evenings. Guests are free to wander in the grounds and the many tables & chairs are not specifically designated for any one dwelling. There is a splendid round Summer House in the gardens with circular seating and balustrades and roll-down canvas sides which guests are encouraged to use. A canopy stretches between the buildings over the seating areas on the Courtyard Patio for days when its warm enough but not dry enough to enjoy a glass of wine or a Pint of draught beer whilst taking in the spectacular views over the Farmland and Lakeland Fells.


The Carriage House is generously proportioned and has a offer a lot to those with low mobility. All the accommodation is at ground level with wide doors and the walk-in shower can accommodate a wheelchair. Other guests rarely notice the discrete, stylish, modern chrome toilet grabs. The large bedroom features a king-sized Rattan Sleigh bed and a Single bed for a Carer. Guide dogs are permitted in The Carriage House & The Old Forge (also at ground level but with no other mobility enhancements).

"Perfect location and accommodation for three-day business meeting"

We chose Hyning Estate as it would very comfortably accommodate our team of ten, with space for additional colleagues who joined us for dinner one evening and then a full meeting the following day. We had exclusive use, with the added benefit of the different lounge areas for break-out groups. The main meeting room was well-equipped and the owners Richard and Jan provided buffet lunch. Tea and coffee was set up so we could help ourselves whenever we wanted it. The wi-fi was excellent in all areas, which is a key consideration.

The team enjoyed cooking and entertaining from the two largest adjoining cottages with their spacious kitchens, lounge and dining areas. Nineteen of us sat down to dinner and had a most relaxing and enjoyable evening. The whole complex is extremely high quality - the build, the furnishings and the equipment. It is a perfect location for team-building, planning or training meetings and for us the truly tranquil location contributed hugely to the success of the three days.

"Fantastic accommodation in a rural location"

Our weeks stay here was lovely. The accommodation is well equipped and furnished to a high standard. If you are looking for a quiet location, close to the lakes, this is it. Highly recommend.… More

We are the hardest people to please. We run our own cleaning company and are used to staying in luxury accommodation. This was simply perfect! So much effort and thought was put into this property. It was immaculately clean and really well appointed. The little touches were really appreciated. The one little niggle - you could occasionally hear furniture being moved around in the bar area next door early in the morning. but apart from that, this place was absolutely fabulous. Looking forward to returning sometime in the future.

Thank you for your kind words ... yes we do try to make everything perfect and to attend to every detail so your final comment has had us scratching our heads for a couple of weeks because the end wall of the 17th Century farmhouse you were staying in is more than 2 feet thick in places (& this was before we added all the insulation) which, combined with triple glazing, means you can't hear anything from the Byre next door (& we've tested this)... so its been a real puzzle but this morning we finally cracked the mystery ... the two Inglenook Fireplaces in The Old Farmhouse and The Byre are fairly close to each other and both stoves have stainless steel chimney liners which go up the same chimney so we think we were probably cleaning out the grate in the stove in The Byre, and you must have detected a faint noise and assumed it was our moving furniture around. Suffice to say, we'll avoid doing this too early in the morning in future. Thank you for pointing this out. :-)

"High Quality Luxurious Lakes Break"

I can't rate this place highly enough. From the initial 'wow' factor of that lakes cottage feel, to the high-end appliances and granite worktops, this is a great place to stay for the entire family.
We stayed with friends in 'The Old Farmhouse' which sleeps 6, and the option for 2 people to stay on a sofa bed to make it 8. We were right next door to the bar (of which closes at 8). You couldn't hear any noise from the bar which is generally a quiet spot for having a quiet drink anyway. The bar is for users of the cottage estate. We didn't get food from the estate, we cooked our selves and found that it had everything we needed, from spatulas, knives, pans, oil, and whatever to chopping boards, cutlery, tea bags, coffee (and filter coffee maker). The owners even left us cheese, bread, wine, butter, milk and cordial ready for when we arrived, It is true 5 star living and we didn't want to leave!
It also had free wifi, and also a computer (that we didn't use) in one of the bedrooms for browsing the internet. It was very very clean and there were even cleaning products at hand if you needed to clean up yourself.
I would recommend this cottage estate to anyone!

"Perfect weekend away for a large group of friends"

Just got back from a weekend away at the Hyning Estate and couldn't recommend it enough. We were a group of friends, including some with small children, and this was perfectly suited to everyone.… More

"Fantastic accomodation. Fantastic hosts. Fantastic location."

I stayed with my family in the Granary property in late July 2014. It was one of the best holiday rentals we have ever stayed in. The place was spotlessly clean and fitted out to a very high spec throughout from kitchen to living space, bathroom to bedrooms.

Our hosts left us with a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival and in the fridge was some local bread, jam and marmalade, butter, cheese and milk to help the first few hours roll by. This was most appreciated after a long journey to get there and nice hospitable start to our holiday.

We used the Hyning Estate as a base to explore the Lake District, being only 5 miles outside Kendal and a 20 minute drive to Windermere and Bowness. However the estate itself is wonderful place to relax in.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped and set in glorious countryside with stunning views. The children loved playing there and spotting the wild animals (we saw deer, numerous birds and heard frogs in the stream) In addition, the small bar and courtyard were a lovely touch and great place to have a quiet drink after a long day out and about in the Lake District.

For those who take an interest in such things, the place is run to high green/eco standards with its solar power and heating systems. It also has exceptional WiFi which really helps as due to its location, the phone signal is not so good. No bad thing if you want to get away from it all for a while

We couldn't recommend this place more highly and look forward to a return visit.

"Luxury home from home"

We were really delighted with everything about the Hyning Estate. The setting within the beautiful countryside and the outside space available for guests made our stay really enjoyable and relaxing. 6 family members enjoyed a week long stay in Hall Beck Cottage which is furnished and fitted out to a very high standard with everything we needed - a real home from home. We particularly enjoyed the bedroom balcony which gave great views of the local wildlife and some stunning sunsets. Thank you to Richard and Jan for their hospitality and huge congratulations on their 'Grand Design'. Hope to be back soon.

"A very comfortable stay in delightful premises where we were exceptionally well looked after."

We were five families gathering for a special birthday and we occupied most of the premises so I know what almost all the properties were like. The layout, design and fittings were quite exceptional in their planning, execution and level of luxury. The proprietors were especially helpful too. They arranged a splendid buffet lunch for our family and guests and served and cleared it afterwards! Nothing was too much trouble for Jan and Richard and their charges were very reasonable.
The Hynings Estate is about 8 miles from Kendal and from the M6, and the south lakes are within reach as are so many of the attractions of the Lake District. The younger family members loved Brockhole near Windermere for its adventure playground, lake swimmimg and boat trips while the aesthetes appreciated Blackwell, the Arts and Craft house near Bowness, as well as Ruskin's and Wordsworth's homes, all of which are within easy reach. Steam trains and walking, serious or strolls, as well as fine dining are all available in the area. These are exceptional holiday properties in an exceptional part of our country.

"Maintaining High Standards"

When we visited in July 2013 the proclamation was that of Arnold Schwarzenegger, "I'll be back" and we were. It could not have been easy to bring a project of this magnitude from concep… More

It was a real pleasure to have you both back again for two weeks this year and we look forward to your next review in the Schwarzenegger trilogy :-)
