Quality & Comfort Assured


Nab Cottage is a 7 bedroom guest house alone on the side of Rydal Water in the centre of the Lake District. The situation is idyllic, surrounded by mountains yet only 2 miles from Ambleside and Grasmere.
The cottage dates from 1556 and the bedrooms are cosy with beautiful views across the lake or up the fell at the back. Most have a private shower and toilet. Downstairs is a sitting room with log fire, dining room with computer (wifi access) and a small TV room. The atmosphere is easy going and many guests enjoy spending time inside; chatting by the blazing fire, reading at the window seats overlooking the lake, watching a film in the old opium room or poring over maps and enjoying our homemade bread and a long breakfast. Dinner is served on Fri and Sat. We use fresh and largely organic and fairtrade ingredients. Although we are not licensed you are welcome to bring your own alcoholic drinks.
There are excellent low level walks directly from the door as well as
plenty of challenging fell walks. An excellent local pub, which serves food all day, is within walking distance.
Bed and breakfast from 40 pppn.
Packed lunches.
