“"The Nook" is Delightful”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We rented "The Nook" one-bedroomed cottage at the back of Ivythwaite B&B in Princes Road, Windermere for one week. The cottage is two-storied, with bedroom, bathroom and sitting room upstairs, kitchen and dining area downstairs. Outside is a convenient and secure parking space. The cottage has been delightfully renovated and fitted out. All that you need is available, and everything is in excellent condition. We enjoyed being able to cook at home for a week during our months overseas, so put the kitchen through its paces. It came out well. The cottage is extremely well positioned, with easy walking or driving access to Windermere, and equally easy navigating to all of the sights of the Lake District. We were impressed by the cottage, and thankful to our host, Mike who was friendly and helpful. Thanks for your hospitality.

“Amazing stay in the nook”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a delightful one week stay in the nook. This beautiful cottage offers you peace and relaxation, equipped for all your self catering needs and even has sky movies on demand and free WiFi. Perfectly located within a 10min walk to either bowness or Windermere and great transport links mean you can leave the car and easily explore by bus, boat, bike, railway and foot. The cottage has secure private parking. We received a very warm welcome from Mick and Wendy who recommended lovely walks and places to eat as well as serving us a delicious breakfast on our last day. We are already plan to stay next year.

“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have just returned from a lovely 3 night stay at the Nook. The cottage was clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and everything you could need. It really was a home from home. The Nook is also perfectly located just a few minutes walk to either the town centre or the lake and is a good base for exploring the surrounding countryside. There is even a parking space right next to the cottage.

We were greeted by Mick the owner who was very welcoming and gave us some good tips on places to visit and recommended local restaurants and pubs. We had a great weekend and will be recommendong the Nook to family and friends.

“Great little place to stay”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Stayed here last month with my partner and I would definitely recommend it. Owners are extremely helpful and always around if you need anything or have any questions. The cottage itself was lovely and had everything we needed, including a fully equipped kitchen. The wifi was perfectly fine when we stayed too. Brilliant location with Windermere and Bowness located about 10 mins walk in either direction.

We stayed in the Nook for a week - a fantastic little cottage, yet plenty of room with everything we needed.
The Nook was both clean and comfortable, and was a lovely cosy place to come back to after a busy day. It was well presented and felt homely.
The convenience of the dishwasher was also appreciated!!
An ideal location for exploring. It was just a short walk to the lake or up to the town where there were good cafes and restaurants. It was also a good base for exploring beyond Windermere.
Mick and Wendy made us feel very welcome here and were helpful with their recommendations.
There is no doubt that we would stay here again on our next visit to the lakes!

We have just returned from a lovely 5 day stay at the Nook. It has everything we could have needed for a short stay. The accommodation is really nicely decorated and is well equipped and very clean. It is perfectly located for walking into both Windermere and Bowness where there are several lovely pubs and restaurants. Hopefully next time we come up the rain will have subsided a little so we can explore the lakes some more! Thanks again Mick and Wendy!

Super cosy well appointed cottage. Everything you need, like a home from home! Mick and Wendy are friendly and helpful. Mountain bike storage much appreciated! Easy walking distance to either Bowness or Windermere. Pubs and food not far away at all but The Nook is far enough away from the main road to be peaceful and quiet. Parking right outside the door too!
