This lovely cottage is set close to the town of Keswick and sleeps two people.

Wren's Nest is a charming semi-detached barn conversion situated on the edge of the village of Thornthwaite, four miles from Keswick in the Lake District National Park. This cottage sleeps two people in one double bedroom. The cottage also has a ground floor shower room and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside there is off road parking for one car and a front and side patio area with furniture. Wren's Nest is an ideal romantic base for walks, cycle rides, watersports, or simply a place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.


A beautiful little cottage in a surprisingly quiet location. A very quiet haven to wake up in and return to at night which was in sharp contrast to the bustle of the popular sights of the Lake District. The owners have provided everything you could want.
Mrs Higgs

We appreciate the location, the views from Wren's Nest, the ease of access to the A66, north and south and its proximity to Keswick. This was our third visit and, hopefully, we shall return next year.
Mr Seaton

The cottage was cosily beautiful and the owner was friendly, welcoming and informative. The location and views were spectacular. A perfect holiday spot, with a wide and varied range of options.
Mr Hudson
