    This was our second stay at The Nook and it was just as good as we remembered it! A wonderfully cosy cottage in a gorgeous location. This time we visited with our 4-month old so staying somewhere warm and clean was so important as well as a bit of luxury for us to enjoy once the little one was asleep! Lovely hosts and the courtesy call ahead of travel was really appreciated. 100% recommend.

  • Sarika says:

    Lovely cottage! Would come back.

  • Gemma says:

    Gorgeous property set in the most beautiful surroundings. It is the perfect location as it’s set out in the countryside so its lovely and quiet with some nice walks on the doorstep, but then 5 minutes drive away and you’re in Windermere. A great base to start for exploring all that the Lake District has to offer, then this property lovely to come back to at the end of a long day as it’s so cosy! We would 100% recommend this property to anybody and would not hesitate to book for ourselves again

  • Mandy says:

    Very clean covid safe small cottage, well-appointed and very comfortable especially the bed, excellent toiletries with a nice bottle of fizz. Would highly recommend it.

  • Ellen says:

    Wow! What a stunning little cottage on the edge of Windermere. This luxurious one bedroom cottage on a country estate exceeded our expectations for our staycation honeymoon. The Nook provides a tradition Lake District cottage feel with a contemporary edge. It is in the perfect location if you would like to be away from the hustle and bustle of Windermere and Bowness yet still within a 20 minute walk. The house was spotless on arrival and we were provided will all the information needed for our week stay. We have already agreed it is a destination we will return to!

  • Rachael says:

    We would highly recommend this for a stay near Windermere. The location is stunning and offers peace and quiet for a countryside break. The apartment was spotless and exactly as described. Communication was quick and helpful. We will definitely be back!

  • Loni says:

    Staying in the Nook felt like an extra special gift – especially for a much needed holiday! If you want a luxurious, well-designed and beautiful spot to relax in and enjoy the Lake District then this is the place to stay.

    Lovely setting and accommodation furnished to a very high standard. Would stay again.

    We loved our week’s stay at The Nook. An extremely comfortable property with everything you need and more. Great communication and Michelle was super helpful.

  • Ben says:

    Excellent cottage, clean and tidy. Michelle was wonderful at responding to messages.

  • Faye says:

    Beautiful location, the little terrace was delightful to catch the afternoon sun! Best shower we’ve ever used after lots of hiking and the bed was brilliant. Lovely little touches and a self-catering with a kitchen that is actually really functional! Would recommend hiring kayaks on ullswater from the sailing club on a sunny day.

  • Surjit says:

    Most beautiful stay, perfect location super peaceful and surrounded by gorgeous views

  • Hannah says:

    Thanks for an amazing stay at The Nook! It really was 5* accommodation, great location and we loved the personal touches like Prosecco on arrival. Would recommend to any couples looking for an indulgent break in the Lakes!

  • William says:

    Perfect space for a trip away! Very clean and tidy, everything was exactly as advertised. Exceptionally comfortable and just want we needed to come back to after long hikes during the day. The provided guides and books really helped us plan our days as well, would absolutely visit again.

  • Alexandra says:

    Great stay, would recommend

  • Kris says:

    Had a lovely stay. The estate was lovely and the accommodation really clean and modern, with great amenities. Good location for exploring the Lakes – if the weather had been better, it would have been easy enough to walk into Windemere to the restaurants

  • Tina says:

    A lovely stylish, clean and modern cottage, in a great location. Recently opened this summer.

  • Rebecca says:

    The Nook was the perfect couple getaway, really enjoyed our stay!
