  • "Nest Barn was absolutely perfect and we loved our stay there."

    It was so warm and cosy and well equipped. The views from the cottage are incredible and it was so relaxing to sit and eat looking out at the fells. The fields for our dog to run around it were great and it was lovely to be able to head out on walks straight from the door. I would love to go back Nest Barn again. Perfect cottage in a perfect location. Thank you so much.

    Hi Sophie We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you so much for your lovely comments. Property Owner

    The property has all the things you need for a self-catering holiday. It is also ideal for dogs as it has an enclosed courtyard and a paddock. We have already booked our second holiday at Nest Barn.

  • "Walks in the mountains with my dogs, had great weather which helps, used my waterproof jacket once but only to keep warm at the top of Red Pike!"

    Keswick is a lovely town and makes for a good location to reach some of the best long distance walks available

This cottage is perfect for families and friends looking for a rural retreat with fantastic views with plenty of fells to explore from the doorstep.

Keswick is one of the Lake District's most popular destinations.

This friendly town hosts the very popular twice weekly market.

The town also offers a fantastic array of shops offering everything from craft bakeries and local produce, antiques, crafts and much, much more.

For a great evening out why not visit the 100 year old Alhambra offering first class cinema entertainment in traditional surroundings or enjoy an evening at the Theatre By The Lake on the shores of Derwentwater.
