The Famous 1657 Chocolate House in Kendal - Luxury Chocolates
Our 1657 Chocolate House in Kendal, Cumbria is believed to have been built in the 1630’s, originally as a private home in Kendal.
Long before it became a Lake District tourist attraction in 1984 the Chocolate House, now in it’s 30th year has been a bakery, antiques shop, travel agents and a ladies fashion shop.
As many of our English traditions are fast disappearing, we are committed to retaining a few of the best from the 1600’s.
Our 16 speciality chocolate drinks and dishes have names from that era, such as the well-known Nell Gwynne – one of Charles II’s mistresses.
No wonder chocolate is said to have aphrodisiac properties. Now you can send or receive our luxury chocolates and gifts by post via our online ordering facility all carefully packed by our dedicated staff.
Our luxury chocolates continue to attract chocoholics and corporate clients from over 40 countries taking advantage of our 100 different kinds of loose chocolates and our ability to offer personalised chocolates and gift boxes.
