Kendal is a popular market town and is often referred to as the gateway to the Lake District, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK with 912 square miles of amazing scenery.
The County Hotel was purchased by Daish’s in 2018 and reopened in May 2019 after a six-month refurbishment programme which included a new reception, restaurant, bar and lounge. All 41 bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms were also refurbished. The rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and a television. There are lifts to all floors and free Wi-fi in all rooms.

KRG Autumn Self-Drive Holiday 2022
Members will know that for the last two years, and for this coming September, the Autumn self-drive holiday has been to one of HF’s centres. We attempted in previous years to get a booking at the Southern Snowdonia centre, Dolgellau, but have always been unsuccessful, as this is a very popular centre. Earlier this year we again put an early marker down for Dolgellau and this time we have been successful. The Group has placed a holding deposit for September 2022. We are very aware that places for large groups at the HF holiday venues are booked up months, and even well over a year, in advance, so we are very pleased to be able to offer this to our members, especially at this time with increased demand for holidays in the UK.
Full details of Dolserau Hall can be found on HF’s website, briefly, it has twenty-three en-suite bedrooms and it is in the Snowdonia National Park just two miles from the town of Dolgellau.
As a Rambling Group we are entitled to good rates at HF centres and have made a booking for four nights, arrive Monday, leave Friday, bed, breakfast, packed lunch and dinner. HF holiday centres have set nights for a four-day holiday.
The holiday date is Monday 26th September 2022 for four nights.
The price per person for the four-night stay is £399. It is possible to book one of their better rooms for an additional charge of approximately £10 per person per night, but such rooms are in limited supply. Rates for groups, such as ourselves, on a self-guided holiday are more reasonable than for those making individual bookings. We believe, due to the quality of the accommodation and food, which includes breakfast, a very good packed lunch, and a three-course evening meal, the price quoted is very good.
