The Nook is a lovely, link-attached cottage in a charming cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere. The cottage is set mostly on the ground floor, with a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite the only room upstairs. Downstairs, there are two further bedrooms, a king-size double and a room with zip/link bed, providing the option of being made up as a king-size double or twin beds. There is a kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area and double doors leading into the courtyard, where you can sit and enjoy breakfast in the summer. From the courtyard, a flight of steps lead up to a decked garden with beautiful views, more outdoor furniture and a barbecue. There is also off road parking for up to five cars. With lots to see and do nearby, and many activities to enjoy in a small drive, The Nook is a wonderful holiday base for both friends and families.
With a charter granted in 1262, the traditional Cumbrian market town of Wigton still holds a market each Tuesday in the covered market hall. This lovely town is a popular centre for shopping, pubs and restaurants, as well as for other activities such as theatre, bowls, swimming, tennis and other sports. The Lord Melvyn Bragg novel, 'A Time to Dance', featured the town of Thurston, which was based on Wigton and the local area. A lovely base for a holiday exploring Cumbria and the Scottish Borders.
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
