We had a wonderful stay. Really felt away from it all in such peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The enclosed garden was stunning (photos dont do it justice!) and perfect for our dog to play in safely. It even has a small stream running through it so our dog could cool off during the heatwave!

First time for us to visit the Lake District and we were not disappointed. The cottage itself was at the very end of the road that takes you up the Kentmere valley and that itself was a lovely run.

Nook House is a perfect location for a holiday in which you can feel totally part of the Lake District landscape without the crowds. The location may be a little remote for some however perfect for us, with multiple walks direct from the house in stunning beauty. The property itself is perfect and some where we plan to return to many times.

Overall a lovely cottage in a splendid location, the views and surrounding walks were fantastic. The cottage itself was well kitted out, and very tastefully decorated. We really enjoyed the open fireplace and cooking on the range cooker. A very relaxing holiday and highly recommended.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
