Swallow's Nest

The Lake District and Cumbria, CA12 5SQ, GB


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.

Property Feedback

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.

,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.
