Very Good

“High quality cottage”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2014

As soon as you enter the cottage the quality of material used is fantastic. Every room is finished to a high standard. The master bedroom and its en suite have heated floors, as does the other bedroom and the main bathroom. Upstairs in the kitchen and lounge which is spacious with comfy seats, the kitchen has everything you need. Upstairs has radiators, the water pressure is fantastic with hot water straight away. The wifi is a little slow to what I'm used to but nothing to get upset about. The owners are very nice, not in your face all the time but there if you need them. The cottage is in a quiet village but close enough to main roads. Overall a great place to go to for a week or a few days.

Genuinely warm welcome, superb quality of finish throughout the property, warm quiet and cosy. Good location for north of the park, convenient access to M6 very near. Fabulous service, nothing would have been too much trouble. Thoughtful welcome hamper supplied too! Have already recommended to others.

“Beautiful cottage with excellent facilities”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2013

We stayed in February at Swallow's Nest and could not have been happier with the accommodation. Everything was very stylish, everything had been thought of and we were warm and cosy despite the February chill. The log fire is lovely to snuggle around. The situation is excellent for the northern Lakes with great access to the M6 and a66. Could not have been happier with things.

“Fantastic Rental Cottage”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2011

We stayed at Swallow's nest for our anniversary in Sept 11. The interior was finished to a very high standard, it was like staying in a 5 star hotel. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed buying the amazing produce of the lake district and cooking it up back at the cottage, enjoying the views as we ate. The location is good, close to Penrith town centre, and good transport links into the Lake District. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely come back.

“Beautifully presented cottage”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2011

We rented Swallow's Nest with another couple for a week's stay in the Lake District - and all 4 of us were very impressed with the friendly welcome from Debbie. The amenities in the cottage were all of a high standard, the kitchen was fitted to impressive level as well. The location was fairly well suited for us to explore the area for the first time, we all really enjoyed the whole experience and will be back for another visit very soon. It only took half an hour to get to Kendal and Carlisle so most convenient. Only slight downside was the twin bedded room was on the cramped side and did not have much storage space.

“Perfect Location”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2011

This cottage was very comfortable, we received a lovely welcome from the owners. The cottage was in a delightful village not far from the motorway therefore we spent of our time exploring the area. The cottage was well equipped with superior bathrooms and kitchen. A real home from home!
