Chose this particular cottage as we wanted to visit around the peaks of the northern Lake District. Was perfect retreat, warm and dry and and great place to come back and relax in after a day of walking! Would go back again in the future.
A converted stable, perfect for two. The property is in the village near to pub and overlooking a stream and opened onto a small farm yard with ducks and chickens running around. From here we could access Keswick by car within 15mins where there are full amenities. We self caterered and the kitchen was perfect to do this. We could access walks from here and with skiddaw an obvious all day hike, without the need for the car. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. A great part of the Lakes.
Booked the nest for a two night stay for my wife's 30th 21stapril-23rd April and we have had an amazing time , the nest was lovely and cosy couldn't of asked for a better cottage for a couples retreat , weather was perfect enjoyed some walks around buttermere lake and also braithetwaite lake with some breath taking views with trips in to keswick, Couldnt of asked for a more incredible warm friendly hosts then Alison and family made you feel welcomed the moment you arrived, even showed us the baby ducklings and allowed my wife to feed the lambs, I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone it is fantastic, hope to see you all again soon this time with our two little animals (daughter n son).
Spent a great couple of nights at The Nest. Perfect for two, cosy and warm and well sited for walks in the western lakes. Owners very welcoming and friendly.
This place is beautifully hidden away and is a secret little gem. The place is comfortable and helps restore you after long walks. Allison and her family are so welcoming and friendly who would do anything for you. It is a lovely central base to the Northern lakes and you are guaranteed to have a wonderful time. We will be back!
We had the loveliest week at The Nest enjoying the cottage and surroundings in blissfully sunny weather. The whole environment is so relaxing with the obliging host, ducks, hens, a sweet lamb, friendly dogs and a bonus stream where one can sit and relax and enjoy a drink. The Sun Inn within walking distance where we had three meals is tops too. Everything was just perfect and we were sad to leave. We would love to come again but it is a long way from Australia!
We will be recommending it to our family.
We had a wonderful time in the Nest - it's so snug, and just perfect for a couple looking for somewhere a little off-the-beaten-track in the Lakes. You can climb Skiddaw right from the front door, or drive for just a few minutes to reach the ospreys in Dodd Wood, the more tourist-y attractions in Keswick and some wonderful restaurants. Or, as we did, spend a large part of the holiday curled up under blankets reading!
