    “Recently stayed at Nursery cottage the hostess was brilliant nothing any trouble whatsoever.”

    Weather wasn't particularly good as expected given the time of year, our main reason for visiting St.bees was to see our son and family with their newest arrival. On inclement days it meant lazy days and relaxation in a comfy snug home..nothing wrong with that! Ten out of ten

The property

Set in the heart of the seaside village of St Bees rests this charming Grade II listed holiday home, Nursery Cottage. Boasting a traditional white-washed exterior and rustic character throughout, Nursery Cottage is a marvellous base for your next family getaway to the Lake District. A sought-after off-road parking space greets you upon arrival, leading you along a short pathway to the quaint black and white cottage, stepping over the threshold and into a handy entrance hallway space, offering storage to house your walking gear after a day of adventure. Continuing through, you'll be delighted by the rustic interior of the open-plan kitchen/diner, beautifully-appointed with exposed stone work and a warming woodburning stove nestled within an inglenook fireplace, inviting you to snuggle in on an armchair and escape into the pages of a good book. Cook up a storm in the newly-fitted galley-style kitchen, amply-equipped with all of the essentials, including a handy washing machine to freshen up your wardrobe, and serve your culinary delights around the intimate dining table, planning your next adventure. Settle down for the evening in the snug sitting room for a movie marathon, or enjoy a moment of peace with a leisurely seat on the delightful arbour at the rear of the property. As the day draws to a close, climb the stairs where you'll find two beautifully-presented bedrooms, a double and a twin, both decorated with a calming neutral colouring and maintaining the property's traditional character with eye-catching wooden features and original doorframes. In the morning, prepare for a new day with a leisurely soak in the tub, or if you prefer, make use of the overhead shower for an invigorating rinse. Step out the door and into the heart of St Bees, where you'll find a small selection of eateries, including local favourite, The Manor, set in a rustic 17th century inn, serving traditional home-cooked meals and refreshing cask ales. Test your swing with a round of golf at the 9-hole course, or join the Coast to Coast Walk, a 182-mile hike created by Alfred Wainwright, as it crosses the Lake District National Park from the Irish Sea towards Yorkshire. The Georgian town of Whitehaven is within easy reach, boasting an exciting array of heritage waiting to be discovered at Whitehaven Castle, dating back to 1769, and The Beacon Museum. If that's not your thing, enjoy a leisurely stroll around the marina, soaking in the scenic views across the water, or take the tour around The Rum Story, a recreation of an 18th-century Caribbean island, displaying the origins of the towns dark slave trade. Lace up your walking boots and head off on foot to explore the varying landscapes of the picturesque Lake District National Park, boasting open moorland, fells, woodland and of course, lakes, with walking and cycling routes to suit all abilities. Avid outdoor adventurers can tackle the climb to the summit of Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England, stretching unspoilt views across to the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland on a clear day. Make memories that will last a lifetime with a stay at Nursery Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Whitehaven 5 miles.

St. Bees is an historic seaside village on the west coast of Cumbria with a Norman priory and Elizabethan public school, as well as a shop, post office and old traditional pubs. It's an ideal base for exploring the western Lake District and Cumbrian coast, and is the start of the famous Wainwright coast to coast walk. St. Bees Head is the only major sea cliff between Wales and Scotland and is the only Heritage coastline in Cumbria. There is a fine beach and many wonderful walks are available along the clifftops, which are also home to one of England’s most important seabird colonies. There is also a nine-hole golf course in the village. Nearby Whitehaven, an elegant Georgian port, and the spectacular western Lakes, are more than worthy of a visit. Muncaster Castle is 8 miles away, as is the Eskdale and Ravenglass miniature railway. Cockermouth, the birth place of Wordsworth, and Keswick on Derwentwater are also within easy driving distance.

Note: Up until 4th September 2021, this property is pet friendly. From 4th September 2021, the property is pet free.
