Nab Cottage provides wonderful views, a great nights sleep, immediate access to some wonderful walks, and a great breakfast to prepare you for it all. Tim and Liz were excellent hosts, and their stance on locally sourced, fresh and organic produce adds to the character and quality of the stay.

Would definitely go there again and... More

Our workshop was in Nov 2013 and the setting and accommodations were excellent. The staff was accessible, friendly, and professional. The rooms were warm, clean, beds comfortable and the bathrooms well maintained and clean.

Just had two nights at nab cottage as a little retreat away from day to day life. Tim and liz and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I had all I needed to relax. The energy in the house is amazing and loved room 7 where I stayed. I was the only guest so it was amazingly quiet and... More

Nab Cottage certainly has character and is good value for the area. It's in a great location for exploring the Lake District and we appreciated being out of the busier towns. We were warmly greeted and loved our room which had a window seat and looked out over Rydal Water. The ensuite bathroom was quite adequate with a good shower.... More

Nab Cottage and it's delightful owners Tim and Liz are true gems. Our two night stay was comfortable and charming, and the cottage history a rare bonus. It is not often one gets quirkiness and perfection combined, but Tim and Liz manage to pull it off with superb grace. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful and the rooms cosy and... More

We have just returned from a four night stay at Nab Cottage which was truly wonderful. It's location is perfect for walking, we didn't use the car at all during our stay! Tim, Liz and the team were so very welcoming and we were thoroughly spoilt with amazing food and hospitality. The cottage has a real charm and a calming... More

I stayed at Nab for a weekend yoga retreat and had a great weekend. For a low price retreat this place was perfect. The converted barn was made for yoga and the vegetarian food provided was second to none. 3 course meals and amazing puddings! I also used the hot tub which is in the garden which helped to soothe...

We have just returned from a three night stay at Nab Cottage. We were greeted by Tim and the offer of tea and cake (delicious) in the sitting room, very peaceful with a lovely fire. Although the guest facilities of a sauna and hot tub were mentioned we were never shown them or offered again. Unfortunately our en-suite shower (room... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Nab Cottage for 12 days. I was in an 8-day course that was held in their remodeled Barn. Nab Cottage is truly delightful. It's a small B&B, about 10 rooms I think. Some have private bathrooms "en-suite", and some have a sink in the room and the toilet and tub/shower are just outside... More
