The Nook Guest Reviews

I compose this as I sit in the rocking chair at the kitchen table, with a glass of red wine in front of me, Classic FM playing in the background, whilst waiting for a homemade seeded loaf to bake in the AGA. Could it get any more idyllic? Reality however hits tomorrow when we have to leave this beautiful part of the the country. Our star in The Nook has encompassed treacherous yet enjoyable walks in the fells, including a four hour trek from the cottage to the Kentmere Reservoir and another three hour walk to The Queens Head at Troutbeck. The thought of heading back to such a warm and cosy cottage to wine and dine and wind down in from of the log burner with a good game or book has proved a real treat….We will sorely miss the peace and tranquillity of the garden and surrounding fells. The views will stay with us for a long time to come. Thank you for the memories.

What a perfect place to spend a very rainy week! The cottage is so beautiful and cosy and the surrounding countryside so lovely that the weather hasn’t mattered at all. By far the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in, its the detail - all the beautiful crockery, lamps, rugs etc that elevate it beyond the nom. Thank You for the welcome and the friendliness. We have had a lovely week.
Diane & Alan September 2017

We stayed at the Nook for a week and had the most delightful stay. We were welcomed with cake and the aga warming the kitchen. The nook is tastefully decorated and very cosy especially when log burner lit! But the  most beautiful part was the garden, myself and partner said when we arrived "surely all this isn't ours for the week!!" It's a lot bigger than pictures. Step outside the gate and the walks are right on door step. If your thinking of booking don't just book it you won't be disappointed.

The cottage was a real delight in a fantastic location: full of charm and character - exceeding expectations.  The AGA was great to cook on and the internal decoration was in keeping with the character of the property. The garden was beautiful and so was the view down Kentmere Valley.  A very peaceful and remote location - just what we wanted.  Access to walks couldn't be better.
The owner was friendly and helpful both on arrival and when leaving.
Many thanks

We have lived in several cottages during our England and Scotland holidays but this one is the most authentic and the most beautifully decorated one! We made a lot of trips but every time we returned quickly to splendid glorious sunny afternoons in the lovely gardens with the magnificent view of the Kentmere Valley and the profound silence except for the sheep and the cuckoo!
Meuran & Kees May 2017

We have had a lovely stay here in this fabulous house! The evenings with candles, good food, great atmosphere were memorable. We really enjoyed the beautiful features, the cosy sitting room, we felt in paradise and will come back soon. Thanks for the warm welcome. I think we will be buying an Aga cooker in the near future. Tonight is our last night in paradise, every good thing has to finish.
Allon & David May 2017

A lovely 4 day break in your warm and comfortable cottage. After a days walking it was so nice to come back and flop in front of the fire. A great few days. Many thanks.
John & Amanda April 2017

Its all been said before - We are looking for dates to come back again next year already. Thank you
Annmarie & David April 2017

We had the most glorious weekend imaginable! The Nook is the perfect setting - We particularly adored breakfast overlooking the valley and the woodturning stove. Thank you ever so much for hosting one of our most memorable weekends…we will be back.
Sam & Hermionie March 2017

The Nook is an amazing place - we loved every minute of our stay in this very special cottage. We so appreciated the attention to detail in the interior design - The Aga, the woodburner and such an idyllic setting. The view from the bedroom window while having a morning cup of tea could not be beaten! We also loved the way we could just walk straight out of the cottage for walks without getting in our car. Thank you for the really warm welcome.
Tim & Ruth February 2017

We are quite keen campers who have visited The Lakes a lot. We were quite apprehensive about staying in a “cottage for softies”. How glad and fortunate too find The Nook. Even made a lemon drizzle cake in the Aga!
Jim & Deidre February 2017

Fab cottage, couldn't ask for more. So relaxing, very chilled. Don't want to leave
Nicky & Mark January 2017

We have had a lovely time staying in this wonderful, magical cottage.  The views are spectacular, the garden is beautiful. We would be back tomorrow if it was possible.
Jackie & David Gladgow

Such a gorgeous cottage in amazing scenery, we could have just stayed in the garden and never moved! The bed is so comfy - the best ever! Thanks for letting us stay here.

We have had a really wonderful stay in Kentmere with its amazing scenery. The cottage is full of character and the garden is amazing.  

Very lucky to be the first to stay in this idilic cottage, fantastic views and very cosy to return to after long walks in the beautiful Kentmere valley. We can't wait to stay again!

Thank you for a lovely, relaxing break in such a beautiful, peaceful cottage. a stunning location with breathtaking views - We are very envious that you get to live here! Thoroughly enjoyed cooking on the Aga (and sitting in the chair next to it with a cup of tea!). Such a lovely homely feel and lovely decor throughout.
Gavin & Laura November 2016

We have had the most wonderful time here. The Nook is absolutely beautiful - a real home from home. The Aga is incredible, we had such cosy evening by it cooking. The log burner was equally lovely, and winding our weary way to bed (which was so comfortable!) after some hefty walking was perfect. Loved exploring such a peaceful part of The Lakes but returning to the cottage was the best.
Jim & Sophie October 2016

We did not expect such a perfect place. The cottage is fantastic, almost unreal. We felt like we were in a Jane Austin novel. Beautiful decoration and furniture. A typical Lakeland cottage - Amazing! The garden in itself is a masterpiece. We will never forget this week.
Fabienne & Leonard August 2016 

What a magical place, what a lovely cottage. So much peace and silence, only the wind, sheep and birds there to listen to. Just what we needed. We Love!!!!! Your place and your kindness. Thank you for a wonderful week, we will never forget it.
Mary & Jos June 2016

We have had a wonderful honeymoon here in The Nook. We chose this cottage hoping for a tranquil, relaxing place to be after recent hectic weeks preparing for our wedding and it had been wonderful, beyond our expectations. We will be back. Maybe for our first anniversary. Ps The lambs were a joy to watch!”
Joe & Nichola May 2016

This is our fifth visit to Kentmere and we have now stayed in all the houses. Like the others it is spacious, characterful ands has lots of charm. We have enjoyed a week of fine weather and great walking. We will return.
Ken & Susan March 2016

The best thing about coming here on honeymoon is that we now have a good excuse to come back for our anniversary! Beautiful cottage and stunning location. The views are wonderful from every window. Thank you for letting us stay . The perfect end to a very memorable week.
Matt & Amy February 2016

A lovely, but all too short stay in the wonderful cottage. Perfect for an anniversary getaway. We had beautiful snowy views of the valley and a crisp Sunday morning walk”.
Catherine & Neil December 2015

We are so glad that we discovered Kentmere all those years ago. Since then we have enjoyed many happy holidays in Shepherds Nook and Pengennett. This was our first stay in The Nook and we have absolutely loved it! The cottage is perfectly located in the most lovely of locations. Every window is like looking into a living masterpiece. The constantly changing beautiful autumn shades have been a delight in all weathers. The Nook is warm, cosy and very comfortable for days in with a good book and something nice cooking on the Aga. The surrounding countryside provides a plethora of wonderful walks at all levels depending on what takes your fancy and how energetic you feel - with the added bonus of not having to get the car out. Thank you for making such a lovely haven for a truly restorative break!
Cathy & Peter October 2015

We feel sad to be leaving this magical place. A week is not enough! Thank you for letting us stay in The Nook, it has been such a pleasure to meet you both and spend time here. Our first proper visit to The Lake District has been wonderful and wont be our last.
Roger & Gill September 2015

This has been a perfect week in a traditional lakeland cottage. Very comfortable and relaxing. the Aga has been a revelation. We have enjoyed relaxing evenings cooking together. The local walks are a blend of the challenging and the purely enjoyable. A real home from home.
Paul & Dawn August 2015

Many thanks for a wonderful week at The Nook. Our second visit and already looking forward to the next time.
Gordon & Jenni July 2015

We have had a wonderful holiday in the lovely cottage with its beautiful garden and idyllic location. I have fallen head over heels for the Aga and don't know how I'm gong to live the rest of my life without one!. Thank you for your warm hospitality. We shall be back. 
John & Julia June 2015

The cottage is a magical place to relax. It has exceeded all expectations, very cosy and comfortable. The garden is a hidden treasure and on a sunny nightie perfect place to end the day with a drink. The views are breathtaking. Thank you very much for providing us with such an idyllic location. We hope to be back soon.
Jan & Russ May 2015

Another amazing week in The Lake District. Unbelievable weather all week which has led to some great walks and lovely evenings sat in the garden. Great location away from the busier areas. Picture perfect views.
