Kendal Nutricare is situated in Kendal, the gateway to the Lake District National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The Lake District was designated a national park in 1951 and the National Trust owns one quarter of the land which it preserves.
The landscape is famous for the 5 highest mountains in England – Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Great End and the 21 large water bodies including the beautiful lakes of Windermere, Ullswater, Coniston , Derwent, Wastwater, Thirlmere, Buttermere and Bassenthwaite.
Kendal is home to two castles, two museums, a host of historical buildings and bridges, fine restaurants, excellent local schools, quality hotels and beautiful views.
Kendal Castle was the residence of the Parr family, including Queen Catherine Parr the sixth wife and final wife of King Henry VIII of England.
Kendal is often seen as ‘The Gateway To The Lake District’, being only 10 miles from Windermere and around 30 miles from Keswick. All of the surrounding lakes are within 2 hours travelling by car from Kendal. The locations are fantastic for countryside walks and rambling.
Today the town is home to a thriving retail sector, historical buildings, and of course Kendal Nutricare Ltd.
The wet weather combined with the temperature is ideal for dairy farming.
Cumbria has also the second largest milk pool in the UK. Kendal Nutricare is therefore situated at the Gateway to the freshest milk produced on grass fed pastures, surrounded by clear running rivers and temperate clean air.
The Lake District is home to children’s favourite stories from “The Three Bears” (1837, Robert Southey, Keswick) to “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” (1901, Beatrix Potter , Near Sawry) to “Swallows & Amazons” (1930, Arthur Ransome) to “Postman Pat” (1978, John Cunliffe, Kendal) and to romantic Lake poets like William Wordsworth “I wandered lonely as a Cloud”, 1807, Grasmere.
The beauty of the Lake district has made it the Outdoor Centre of Britain, with over 15 million visitors walking along the fells and climbing mountains each year. Great outdoor events include ‘The Kendal Mountain festival’ in November attracting the world’s greatest mountain climbers, the Fred Whitton Cycle race in May 112 miles long and the Great North Swim across Windermere.
The National Park is constantly challenged to find ways of encouraging sustainable tourism without damaging the landscape, they ensure the mountains and waters are kept clean when visitors come to enjoy.
