“Beautiful Bassenthwaite, real Lake District”

The loft was a very clean, comfortable, small flat with all the amenities we needed. The view from the window to Mt Skiddaw was breath taking and the owner, Mrs Trafford, was kind, helpful and accommodating. The loft was very close to the Lake District attractions we enjoyed, and as well, we enjoyed seeing a farm in action.

“friendly relaxed and welcoming place to stay”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Our 3rd stay at this particular Venue, we keep coming back as all cottages are clean, comfortable and nice to stay in. It's in a good location with easy access to good walks and local town is only 10 mins away. Our dog was also made very welcome during the stay too. The cottage includes everything you need which is good when self catering, and if you need any food there is a local shop 10 mins walk away.

...and every review here is spot on! We loved it, the family, the farm, the walks, the location. We would be back in a heartbeat if we didn't live "on the other side of the pond".

“Faultless”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Charming and a great stay. The Nest was spotlessly clean, very cosy and had everything we needed and yes the ducks do go past every evening. Really a 10 out of 10 ex the weather. Without hesitation we would return if we are in the area again.
