  • "Lovely large apartment, with wonderful views over the estuary from the lounge."

    Everything was spotlessly clean. Large smart TV and comfortable seating though really just for 4/5 people, but 2 small chairs are available for use from the bedrooms. Kitchen very well equipped. The 3 bedrooms are of a good size. The apartment is on the second floor which of course requires a climb up some stairs which could be problematic for some, but for us perfectly fine. Plenty of walking from the door and Arnside railway station just a short walk away. We would definitely return.

  • "Lovely, well equipped and maintained flat, superb views."

    I highly recommend the flat, as long the guests realise there is quite a few stairs to get to the front door.

    Thank you for taking time to leave us feedback , we really appreciate it. We’re so glad that you had a wonderful stay at Crow’s Nest . Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week at Crows Nest over Christmas."

    The apartment was spacious, well furnished and warm. Beds were comfortable and linen and towels good quality. We loved the Christmas decorations wine and goodies. The kitchen is well equipped, we cooked Christmas dinner for five there and there was plenty of crockery and cutlery so that we could use the dishwasher. Finally, the view was amazing. We hope to be back when the weather is better.

    Thank you for your feedback we are delighted that you enjoyed your Christmas week at the Crow’s Nest as it’s such a special time for families. The photo you sent of your Xmas day table were spectacular, we were impressed. Looking forward to welcoming you again in the future. Kind regards Kaye & David Property Owner

  • "Fabulous apartment in a perfect location with with really wonderful estuary views."

    Clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and very well maintained. We had a few little glitches early on but these were quickly resolved by the very helpful owners, Kaye and David. A pint of fresh milk would have been a lovely addition after our journey - but there are two good shops fairly close by. We all had a fantastic week and plan to return.

    Everything you needed had been provided, it was very welcoming to arrive back after a day out. Good WiFi and TV signals. The parking was good, the only draw back was the stairs which we did know about before we booked.

  • "Crow’s nest is a lovely apartment situated at the end of the prom, with spacious rooms and beautiful views over the estuary."

    Everything was clean including the oven and the kitchen was well equipped Two flights of stairs was no problem even though 2 of us are in our eighties. The only problem I had was with the mattress on the bed in the en-suite room, it was too hard but I would still go again (perhaps with a mattress topper) as it is such a beautiful apartment in a beautiful position in such a beautiful place.

  • "At first we were disappointed to find the flat was dusty in a few areas (but clean in most others) - but then we met the owners of Crows Nest who explained that the windows had all been replaced the week previously and "there was dust everywhere"."

    So they had been very busy cleaning the flat, but there were a few odd areas which had been missed (it is a large flat). We then realised what a major problem they had faced and did not wish to complain. We also suspect it was the dust which set off the fire alarms one night (early morning) - much to our annoyance. Again the owners were full of apologies and immediately arranged for the maintenance engineer to carry out a full check the next day. Their care for the flat - and for us - could not be faulted.

    Thank you so much for taking the trouble to post feedback. We are always grateful for guests’ comments. We do hope you enjoyed your stay and Thankyou for your understanding and explanation. Kind regards Kaye and David. Property Owner

    Outstanding views across the estuary. Despite the inclement weather we managed decent walks in the area. Arnside station was 10 minutes walk from the property and we made use of it thereby having a couple of driving free days. Arnside itself is a lovely village, would recommend this property.

The property

Overlooking the glistening waters of the coast towards the mountain peaks beyond, in the charming village of Arnside, rests this magnificent penthouse apartment, Crow's Nest.

Situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoying close proximity to a wealth of must see sights and attractions, set in stunning countryside, Crow's Nest makes an excellent base for both families and friends alike.

This beautiful apartment is set over the whole of the top floor and enjoys a spacious and contemporary interior, with a wonderful, large hall.

Drive up to the main entrance and park up in the handy off road space provided before climbing the private internal staircase to the second floor to begin your staycation in this wonderful abode.

A lengthy journey calls for rest, so kick back and relax with a sumptuous spot in front of the television in the sitting room, where you can gaze through the window at the Lake District hills and the estuary, with its ever changing tides to spot your favourite species of bird.

The kitchen/diner is sure to be the social hub of the home, equipped with a large wooden dining table taking centre stage in the room, perfect for family meals or an evening game of cards, along with all of the essential conveniences required to rustle up hearty meals throughout your stay.

If you're looking for an escape from the excitement, head to the family bathroom, where you can spend peaceful moments soaking amongst the bubbles in the tub before climbing into your pyjamas to catch your rest.

When sleep calls, choose between three well presented bedrooms, with the first of two doubles along with a sumptuous king size framing far reaching sea views, whilst the second double benefits from access to its own en suite, ideal for beating those morning queues!

For the adventurous from your doorstep are great walking and cycling trains, nearby paddleboarding, a collection of golf courses for the keen golfers and horse riding perfect for making memories.

Take advantage of your close proximity to the coast, where peaceful afternoons can be spent strolling along the estuary, savouring fresh fish and chips, whilst the towering trees of Ashmeadow Woodlands offer an idyllic change of scenery.

If you don't feel like doing the cooking, head to The Albion to tuck into traditional pub fare or treat yourself to an indulgent slice of cake at Frankie's Bakery or The Old Bakehouse.

There's plenty more to see and do nearby, including the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis, where you can come face to face with snow leopards, meerkats and wallabies to name a few, whilst the nearby nature reserve of RSPB Leighton Moss is brimming with birds, otters and deer.

Arnside train station puts you within easy touring distance of a host of local delights, including the city of Lancaster, with its mediaeval castle and award winning university, along with the charming market town of Ulverston.

Whilst you're in the area, be sure to immerse yourself in the rural delights of Cumbria with an adventure through the Langdale Pikes or to the summit of The Old Man of Coniston, or simply enjoy Windemere.

A rural retreat for six awaits at Crow's Nest.

About the location


Kendal 10 miles; Windermere 17 miles.

Arnside is situated on the southernmost tip of the Lake District in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where low limestone hills, marshy plains and deciduous woodlands characterise the surrounding land. This former fishing port has retained many of the features from its past. The beautiful pier and port areas of the village offer stunning views across the Kent Estuary, as well as providing an enduring reminder of Arnside's illustrious history. To the south of the village are the 15th century Pele Towers, which were constructed to defend against the marauding Scots. The local surrounding area is a nature lover's paradise with stunning limestone pavements and wonderful woodland walks through countryside alive with rare plants, trees and wildlife. The internationally renowned Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve is also just one mile away. Guided walks across the Kent Estuary are available, showing the full splendour of the shore and surrounding area. Within easy touring distance are the Lake District and Lune Valley, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland.
