Romantic Lake District cottage given stunning redecoration

Tucked away in part of the Lake District where peace and tranquillity rule and where there is still the chance to get away from it all is Shepherd’s Nook.
Shepherd’s Nook is a true rural retreat in the Kentmere Valley located around four miles north of Staveley making it ideal for exploring Windermere, Kendal and the equally as unspoilt area of Mardale and Haweswater.

Offering 4 star graded accommodation, Shepherd’s Nook is a real romantic bolthole for two but that also allows a small breed four legged companion to stay. It had just undergone a complete refurbishment for the 2017 season making it an even more enticing place to stay. The décor is stylish, tasteful with a huge focus on relaxation. Imagine being able to look out of uninterrupted countryside and fells through garden and grounds. Relax beside the centre focal point Aga and cook up some treats using the local produce available from nearby Staveley. The cottage is perfect for holidays or short breaks whatever time of the year being cosy and warm when required.

With Staveley not far away, there is the choice to dine at the lovely Eagle & Child or perhaps the Hawkshead Brewery Tap or Wilf’s Café. Staveley is perfect for provisions for dining at the cottage too, many guests don’t want to leave it! Walks, well the cottage is located so that a car needn’t be used in all honesty once arrived. Choose a slow amble along the River Kent or embark on a more challenging but very rewardable walk across to Haweswater, the most remote body of water of its size in the Lake District.
