Swallow's Nest description

Holiday home
Swallow's Nest is a wonderful, ground floor barn conversion, situated a short walk from the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, just outside the village of Thornthwaite. The cottage can sleep four people in three bedrooms, including a double with an en-suite shower room, a twin room, and a room with bunk beds for added flexibility. There is also a family bathroom, a kitchen, and a sitting room with a dining area and a cosy gas fire. Step outside, and enjoy a drink on the patio, as you marvel at the beautiful views stretching to fells and mountains beyond, and there is also off road parking for two cars. Swallow's Nest is a fabulous retreat for families and friends in search of a peaceful holiday exploring the Lake District National Park.

Keswick is a popular town situated in the north of the Lake District. The town offers a variety of shops and restaurants, parks, miniature golf and the famous Theatre by the Lake, plus the beautiful lake of Derwentwater at the head of the Borrowdale Valley is only a short walk away.

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.

We love staying at Swallows Nest and have done so a number of times. The view is excellent and we like the proximity to Keswick but enjoy the countryside setting and the wildlife in the immediate vicinity. It is easy to feel at home in this cottage; it has everything you could hope for.

We have stayed at Swallow's Nest before, and we chose it again because of it's beautiful views and the quality of the property. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped, with lots of lovely DVD's and music CD's for those occasional wet days. The property has a good layout, good size bedrooms, thick carpets and a lovely gas flame log fire, so is very cosy.

Wonderful views, ideally situated being near to Keswick but also a rural location.
