Known as the "Gateway to the Lake District" the market town of Kendal offers easy access for both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. The M6 motorway is accessible and with the main line railway at Oxenholme you can be in London in under 3 hours. The town centre has a library, supermarket, churches, banks and medical practices as well as specialist artisan providers and independent traders. A leisure centre with swimming pool is located nearby and The Brewery Arts Centre is a well renowned venue for theatre, cinema, music and cultural events.

For many years Kendal was one of the most important wool towns in the country and the town was also a stopping off point for cattle drives from Scotland as well as a very important market, which still continues today on Wednesdays and Saturdays in the market place. The town is home to six primary schools, two well-regarded secondary schools, Kirkbie Kendal School and The Queen Katherine School and the high-performing Kendal College.
