The Lake District is home to the most spectacular scenery in England, our highest mountains, largest lakes & unspoiled picturesque villages.


The village of Windermere is just 10 minutes walk, Bowness & the lake 15 minutes. Enjoy quiet, scenic walks and mountain bike routes from the door with spectacular lake & mountain views.

Windermere & Bowness are chock full of wonderful restaurants, pubs & cafes. Lots of cosy country pubs close by, historic houses & gardens also. Enjoy a cruise or an evening at The Old Laundry theatre.

"Perfect Romantic Getaway"

Luxury property. Fully equipped. Perfect location. Close to both Bowness and Windermere. Ideal for walkers - no need to use car at all if you don't want. Would stay again.… More

"Another Excellent Holiday"

My girlfriend and I have always enjoyed visiting the Lake District and have stayed at a number of places, but Jay's Nest is the only one we return to now. We love everything about it: its location in Windermere in relation to the rest of the National Park is ideal if you want to set off in all directions to explore the area. It's cosy, clean, very comfortable, and I can't think of a better place to return to in the evening after a long day trekking about on the fells. The only complaint I'd have is we love it so much, it makes leaving at the end of the holiday so much harder. We're already looking forward to our next visit - can't wait!

"very cozy, quiet tucked away cottage"

Stayed a total of 12 nights due to a course in Windermere. Very clean on arrival and Gary and Ange were always happy to help. My partner who is in the later stages of pregnancy stayed with me for 4 nights which made it a home from home for us. It was very cozy, quiet tucked away cottage, with only a 10 minute walk into the town.

Would strongly recommend anyone to Jays Nest.

"Outstanding value and a beautiful property"

We very much enjoyed staying at Jay's Nest. It was a beautifully-presented property that represented excellent value at £320 for the week. We went for a number of pleasant walks in the area and got everywhere by foot or train (the station is only a 20-minute walk away). The local Morrisons and excellent kitchen at Jay's Nest meant we could enjoy staying in and cooking for ourselves most nights. However, there are plenty of local restaurants if you'd prefer to go out. The property is situated in a quiet area and was very comfortable. It helped that we had excellent weather without any rain for the whole week. Gary and Ange, the owners, were very welcoming and even offered us a lift to the train station! Highly recommended.

Thank you for you valued & detailed comments. We're sorry we weren't on hand to greet you on this occasion - we pride ourselves on our customer service but sadly could not be on hand this time due to family circumstances. This is the only comment we have ever had in 4 years about noise from our stairs & we now plan to carpet them. Again, sorry you were disappointed to find that Jays Nest is attached to our home but our website clearly states this is the case. Most of our guests find the privacy they are looking for but occasionally a neighbour may get a fleeting glimpse of part of the garden whilst walking or driving past (although they will be 25 metres away on the private drive).
