Shepherds Nook Guest Reviews

We had a very enjoyable week in The Lake District in spite of some wet weather and staying in Sheherd's Nook Cottage at Kentmere with stunning views over the River Kent Valley.  But best of all was the cottage itself which is an absolute gem, beautifully appointed and thoughtfully furnished with every consideration for a couple like us requiring a comfortable and quiet place to stay for a few days. The charming owner is to be congratulated on how she has interestingly developed the family farm with no less than three cottages for guests to rent of which Shepherd's Nook is one;  and in a setting of spectacular scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay which we would recommend to any couple.

I very much enjoyed my recent stay at Shepherds nook, I thought the location and views exceptional and perfect for fell walking straight from the house. The cottage is very cosy and had everything we needed. The local village Staveley has everything you may need beer, bread, bicycles! I would definitely consider another visit to the cottage in the future.

I will never forget the view,  its so beautiful that its almost unreal. Loved the warmth of the Aga. Thanks Annis!.

We are blown away by the Kentmere Valley - just beautiful! We hardly felt the need to go out. Enjoyed the walking here and cooking on the Aga was a treat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is perfect - cosy, warm, an ideal place to relax after a day on the fells. Thank you.

Lovely short break in the Kentmere Valley. Lucky to enjoy stunning views on the Kentmere Horseshoe. Evenings in by the cosy Aga where perfect for a relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Thank You!

The cottage is wonderful but our stay was made so special by the interesting and inspiring talks with Annis. We came for John to relive special memories and were not disappointed.

We needed a rest and Shepherd's Nook was the perfect place. The weather was good and we went walking but we would have been just as happy snuggling up by the Aga reading. Wow the Aga thought they were just a gimmick, cooked some very tasty food and a cake!

The cottage homely and arty. We loved it when can we move in

We really enjoyed our stay at Shepherds Nook - a lovely cottage as are the others of the same owner in which we have stayed in previously.

Great location for walking & wildlife.  Lovely cosy rooms always warm & dry - very useful for the Lakes in October! Had a lovely quiet relaxing break.

Thank you Annis for a wonderful cottage, everything we wanted and more.  Will definitely be back.

Fantastic week in little snug cottage.  Fantastic views, lots of walking - Kentmere round recommended.  Eagle & Child pub in Staveley excellent food although difficult to drag ourselves away from the AGA.
Jennie & Robin - Islington

Lovely to arrive at such a cosy haven after a fraught trip on the main roads.  The 4 mile moonlight walk to the Eagle & Child on New Years Eve well worth it!  A beautiful retreat - will recommend to others.

Have been coming to the lakes for about 20 years, this is one of our top five places to stay, weather great, cottage great, Kentmere great we will come again for sure.

The cottage and scenery was spot on and we loved the fact we could get up and go for the most amazing walks without getting the car out.

Many thanks.
Our stay was wonderful. I will send a review.
