Swallows Nest
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

Very rural but pretty much perfect

  • 5 of 5

Booked as a base for a cycling weekend in the Lakes with a group of friends

This cottage is lovely... It has clearly been recently renovated to a high standard. Beautifully clean and tidy and with the exception of missing an oven glove (my only negative... Sorry) it had everything that we would have expected!

The Blacksmiths Arms pub is a comfortable walk and was very welcoming with excellent food.

Be aware that it is in a very rural location but this was a bonus for us as it was exceptionally quiet.

Lovely lovely lovely

Lovely Cottage in Beautiful Surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Swallows Nest is a well equipped, clean & comfortable cottage.

Very spacious.

Positioned on a working farm, with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Excellent base for touring the South Lakes, and beyond.

Local pub the Blacksmiths Arms - excellent meal there.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, will hopefully return one day
