The owners’ have lovingly and tastefully restored this mid terraced cottage retaining the character of the original features but bringing a contemporary feel which will be comfortable for families and groups of friends to relax and enjoy.

    Perfect cottage for a prefect family Christmas. Cottage had everything we required and was very clean and characterful.

    We absolutely loved our stay in Bumblebee Nook - home from home in every way. Brilliant location for discovering the shores of Ullswater and Lowther Castle - a short drive away. The autumnal colours and picture postcard weather made for a stunning stay in the Lake District. We very much hope to return. This is a cottage with great attention to detail, good quality furnishings and simply a lovely place to be. We had a warm welcome from the owner too. We highly recommend visiting.

    Perfect little cottage, Julie and Tim are so helpful and lovely! The house is so cosy, we used the log burner most nights whilst we watched films that were already in the house. Beautiful stay, will definitely be returning.

    Bumblebee Nook provided a comfortable and convenient base for meeting up with family and friends and to explore the North Lakes. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, we particularly enjoyed lighting the log burning stove in the lounge which made for cosy evenings. The owners, Julie and Tim, were very friendly and helpful making for a memorable holiday.

    Our stay at Bumblebee Nook was very comfortable and we received a warm welcome from the owners who stay next door. The owners provided a folder filled with up to date local information which we found very helpful. Location wise this was a great base for exploring the Northern Lakes and surrounding areas. It is a peaceful location and we would be happy to recommend the house to our friends and family.
