We had a wonderful long weekend stay in the nest. A great location with easy access from the motorway. Beautiful views of Skiddaw from the cottage windows and very close to Kesick. Also a great pub round the corner with superb food. A lovely welcome from the owners. We will return.

Excellent accommodation for couple (and dog!!) - very cosy with everything you need. Mrs T very friendly and always available for advice and a "chat" Beautiful countryside and convenient for all lakes - especially the Northern area. Lovely walks - guides available in cottage - both locally and a bit further out. Ducks very entertaining and plenty going on around the farm. Pub a few minutes walk - with good food. Thanks for lovely break
