SUMMARY
6 Holme Park is a prestigious renovation and redevelopment of a Grade II Listed Georgian Mansion, which occupies glorious parkland grounds approached by a tree lined avenue with superb far reaching views.

Holme Park was formerly known as Hill Top, a modest Yeoman Farmer’s home dating back to at least 1663 but likely to have had earlier origins. The present house largely dates from the second half of the 18th Century although it underwent extensive remodelling in the early part of the 19th Century, with later additions.

Over the years the house passed through the hands of a number of families; in 1864 becoming part of the Underley Estate owned by the Earl of Bective and was later lived in by Lady Cavendish Bentinck. In its latter years the walls of Holme Park echoed to the sound of footsteps of several generations of children in its role as a preparatory school.

Holme Park Hall was converted in 2009/10 by highly respected developers, Applethwaite Limited of Windermere who took great care in creating six beautifully appointed, highly individual and stylish homes. Whilst retaining the character and integrity of the original building. Number 6, Holme Park has since been further improved by the current owners to create a truly impressive country home.

Just a few minutes away by car lies the busy market town of Kendal, with its good range of shops, restaurants and other amenities, including the renowned Brewery Arts Centre.
