A New Year... a new venture

Many of you will have noticed that posts on A Luxury Travel Blog have been rather thin on the ground this last month.  This is because I’ve been rather busy behind the scenes with something altogether different, but at the same time related.  We are in the process of buying a luxury self-catering property (that’s a vacation rental if you’re on the other side of the pond to us) in Kendal, Cumbria – the town where we live.  I can’t say too much more at this stage because we have yet to exchange contacts but, all being well, that will be happening in around 2 weeks.  Kendal is a beautiful market town ideally positioned between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks and the property has a fabulous view of Kendal Castle which was once home to Catherine Parr, Henry VIII’s sixth wife and the only one to outlive him.  I’ll post more later but, for the time being, a temporary website exists at Kendal Cottages with links to Facebook and Twitter.

    Congratulations! Excited to see pictures, let us know when the site is up and running.

    All the best,

  2. I was grabbed by your tweet of “a new venture,” and wow, is this a whole lot of both! Congratulations, and I hope to be able to visit your property someday soon. The Yorkshire Dales and Lake District have been on my list for a few years now…you’re vey lucky.

    a great location – hope the snow hasn’t caused a lot of problems – has it fulfilled a dream?
