Bannel Head is a fine example of Late Victorian architecture built in 1901 by the Richmond Family, set in formal and woodland gardens in a particularly convenient location within the Lake District National Park on the edge of the market town of Kendal. Converted into four individual properties in 1957, 1 Bannel Head is a luxurious individual ground floor apartment retaining one of the original drawing rooms, with some beautifully crafted and detailed features.
