Birds Nest Cottage Guest House
Ranked #2 of 11 Glossop B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 12, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Birds Nest with my parents. When we arrived at the Birds Nest we were met by its wonderful owner Lynda who made us feel so welcome with not only fresh coffee and tea but also freshly baked cakes. The bed rooms were spotless and really nicely decorated offering us a wonderful nights sleep. On an evening we were able to sit in one of the two public lounges and have a quiet game of cards. Breakfast was top quality with an amazing selection to choose from and freshly made with great service from Lynda. The dining room over looks the gorgeous cottage garden with its own little stream and bridge. In addition the cottage showcases some really great artwork from local and visiting artists. Lynda was able to recommend places to walk and to eat (you must go to the Globe wonderful food).

We have stayed in a wide variety of places over the years but we think that the Birds Nest offers an individual experience that can not be beaten.

A truly comfortable, cosy and welcoming B&B. Beautifully clean and bright, nothing is too much trouble. We were welcomed by Lynda, who is an amazing hostess and cares so much about everybody having a happy stay, she is lovely! Breakfast was delicious, full english (if you wanted it), using local products. For those not used to eating breakfast there are cereals, yoghurts and toast. The gardens at the back are just amazing, a brook running by, and beautiful trees and grassy areas - so relaxing to just listen to the water. Our room was beautifully presented and the bed was very comfortable, we had a very good nights sleep, and after coming back to the cottage after being out for the day, with wettish weather it was nice and warm to come back to. It is handy to get to everywhere and you don't have to drive very far to find beautiful scenery. Oh.... and Lynda makes the most superb cakes for people to help themselves to - delicious! We will definitely be staying here again sometime in the near future. It was a real treat.

I have stayed in many B & B's over the years, travelling a lot with work and I have to say that Bird's Nest cottage rates up there with the best. An extremely warm welcome and cosy homely accomodation. Very clean and comfortable and many home comforts including beautiful home made cake! Delicious. Whilst there I booked in for a hot stones massage which certainly eased the stresses and strains of working and travelling. I would certainly recommend a stay here and will look forward to returning when in the area next.

My friend and I stayed over the August Bank Holiday and we were in a twin room. Extremely good value, comfortable, clean and with excellent breakfast choice. The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. Thoroughly recommended.

We normally stay at our son-in-law's and daughter's home in Glossop but for family reasons we stayed at Birds Nest Cottage GH on this occasion. The accommodation was very good, the hosts were helpful and friendly, and the cuisine was excellent - three course breakfast and coffee. Not only that but a supply of fruit muffins was available in the lounge in case you felt peckish before going to bed! Idyllic garden with rushing brook. We believe the price to very fair, too. Only one caveat - stairs may prove tricky for the elderly or disabled if they have have problems in that area as this is a 19th century cottage with a staircase to match. For us, we will certainly come back again when need arises.

Cosy, homely and pleasant B&B within striking distance of Manchester and near to lovely rolling hills. Comfortable double room with wi fi access, friendly and helpful owner. Good choice of breakfast. Much nicer than budget hotels, and less £££ too.

I have stayed at Birds Nest Cottage twice now and will definitely do so again. Lynda provides really genuine hospitality, fantastic vegan food and a clean, quiet and very comfortable place to stay at really good value for money. The garden is divine and with massages and alternative therapies available on-site what more could you as for??!!
