    This is a lovely homely place, easily accessible and conveniently located for access to the rest of the Lake District. The best thing is the amazing view, great to sit with a coffee and stare.

    Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Nest Barn was probably the best self catering we have stayed in."

    It had everything we needed with the bonus of the courtyard and field for our dog which was great. So many places that cater for dogs do not have an enclosed place to let them out. The views from the big picture window/door was fantastic and the distance from Keswick was good as away from the crowds, but easy to get there. Would definitely stay again!

  • "Clean and comfortable with modern facilities."

    The views and position of the cottage were superb with lots of room for our two dogs who stayed outside safely in the sun most of the time we were back at the cottage. As it was our first time in the Lake District, we would have found it useful to have had a little bit more information about the various pubs and Hotels, for example what other people had thought of the food and service. (It took us all week to find the best pub for a meal)

  • "Great little cottage with amazing views."

    The accommodation is clean, comfortable, well thought out and stocked with everything you might need including dog bowls. Location is a great base for access to the local area, choice of either a hike straight out of the front door or a quick drive to visit the picturesque local towns/villages. Access to secure fields to exercise the dog off lead was great too. Really enjoyed our stay, definitely recommend a visit. Thanks.

    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.
