“Delightful property with views, charm and character.”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Jay's Nest is a fantastic place to stay.
It has been thoughtfully designed and the modern interior is excellent.
The vaulted ceiling in the kitchen and living area really sets the standard. Views from here are fantastic. The kitchen is well equipped with no need to even take a tin opener!
Countryside walks from Jay's Nest are 5 minutes away.
Windermere and Bowness are 10 minutes walk with great restaurants, pubs and shops.
We would have no hesitation recommending and returning to Jay's Nest.

“And they say it always rains in the Lakes”
Reviewed 27 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Just returned from a lovely stay at Jay's Nest
Looked exactly as the pictures showed, it had evey think you would need for a break away, very well equiped.
We were lucky to have Sunshine every day, took the 599 bus to Grasmere for a lovely day out, you could also get the 555 to Keswick.
All in all a lovely break, would recommend.

“Great Cottage, Great Location, Great Price, Great Owners!”
Reviewed 22 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Myself, my wife and our 5 month year old daughter have just returned from Jays Cottage. In terms of value for money, you really cant go wrong. The Cottage is spacious and the finishes are all to a high spec. The owners Gary and Ange were down to earth people who made our stay really comfortable. The town of Bowness, Windermere and the Lake itself are all within a 10-15 walk with a supermarket 2 mins down the road. The bath tub is massive, the shower was powerful and the underfloor heating was a nice a touch! On our drive home, we both said that we couldn't find one fault with the cottage, only that we didn't stay longer. We will definitely be returning to JaysNest and will be passing on your details to our friends and family. Thanks for a great stay.

“Great holiday in fantastic cottage”
Reviewed 13 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed in this cottage for a few days in January,although the weather was not fantastic the cottage more than made up for it! Very modern and beautifully appointed we could not have wished for better accommodation , it was very convenient for all the local attractions but benefitted from being in a quiet area of the village..we even spotted 2 deer in the garden! The views where amazing. We will definitely return!!

“A wonderful stay...”
Reviewed 3 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Situated in an ideal location, just beyond the tourist hustle and bustle of Windermere but within walking distance of the town. The apartment was finished to a very high standard, and everything was provided for.
Referring to the previous review re the noisy heating, we didn't find it to be a problem and you certainly shouldn't let this put you off staying here.
We had a wonderful stay and would rent this place again if we come back.

Thank you for your comments & we are so sorry for any inconvenience. We were unaware of the problem with noise coming from the central heating pipes & are pleased to advise our plumber has found the source of the problem & fixed it. The missing scissors have been replaced.

This is a very simple review to write. The property was comfortable, spotless and clearly maintained to a high standard. The location was ideal for exploring the Lake District from either by road or car, and my god did we do some walking!! Although that was the plan!

You have a very large selection of restaurants within a three mile radius, the scenery is stunning and the place is idyllic.

I would go back in a heartbeat, but now I have a little one it will have to wait until he's grown up a bit!
