If you are after something luxurious, and expect to be waited on hand and foot this is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you like charm, kind, warm and exceptionally friendly hosts, great character, beautiful views and the feeling that you are home from home, this is the place for you.
Tim, the host, is an incredibly friendly guy, all heart. We stayed over the Valentines weekend, and the weather wasn't perfect, but that didn't phase us one bit. Coal fires, charming rooms and delicious food (order a day in advance if you want an evening meal - well worth it by the way!). Nab Cottage is far enough outside of the nearby and extremely bus Ambleside, that you feel like you are in the heart of the Lakes (the one slight downer is the close proximity to the road, but once indoors, you'd never know it as there).
I for one (and my girlfriend) will try most earnestly to go back at another time of year. Nab Cottage is best described, as I already said, as a home from home, not a luxury, boutique B & B, but then it never sets out to be this. Have a look at the website. Having read that, and got a sense of the earthy, spiritual nature of the place, we were not disappointed.
