    “Great location.”

    Quirky layout of cottage, clean and comfortable. Kitchen is small but was ok for the two of us. Wraparound enclosed garden which is safe for your dog. Loved seeing the wild birds every morning. The only downside is the hot water pressure, bit slow. Would definitely return for another stay.

The property

Resting in a prime position upon the cusp of Bowness-On-Windermere in Cumbria is The Bird's Nest, a delightful, three-bedroom bungalow. Well-positioned near a hub of amenities and attractions, enveloped by the Lake District National Park, The Bird's Nest offers a well-equipped base for a family of six, looking to enjoy the countryside with their furry companion in tow. Park up off-road or to the roadside, before travelling through the enclosed, wrap-around garden, ideal for alfresco mealtimes and late-night tipples. Step indoors to locate the compact yet well-equipped kitchen, where you can prepare meals to be enjoyed around the formal dining table. The sitting room offers a homely base to unwind, socialise and catch up with your favourite programmes, featuring an electric fire for those cooler nights. Catch some rest from one of three bedrooms on offer, including a king-size with TV and en-suite, a double, and a twin, all serviced by the bathroom. Enjoy a fresh coffee in the suntrap conservatory, with views out to the garden and its pretty blooms, before heading into the town to stock up on the essentials and to dine out, with a wealth of amenities on your doorstep. Ideal for all the family, head to The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, tour the Windermere Jetty Museum - Stories of boats and steam, or take to Lake Windermere, by boat, kayak, or paddleboard, each offering breath-taking views of the Lakes. Travel north towards Ambleside for a day out filled with charm and nature, firstly stopping off at The Bridge House, followed by a visit to Stock Ghyll Force waterfall and Borrans Park, with Rydal Cave, and the River Rothay Grasmere Foot Bridge resting higher up to reach Grasmere and its attractions. With Kendal nearby, where you can tour Kendal Museum, practise your swing at Kendal Golf Club, or discover the remains of Kendal Castle, there's plenty to see and do from The Bird's Nest.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
