Bumblebee Nook is in a great location if you wish to explore the northern part of the lakes. The web description of the cottage is a fair reflection of the reality with a bright friendly exterior and a cosy and warm interior. The bedrooms are a good size and the bathroom is larger than most. Nice welcome touch, which is always appreciated after a long drive. With the cottage only ten minutes drive from Penrith its very easy to stock up on your journey to the cottage and also great for popping into for additional supplies from the numerous supermarkets. The friendly owners live next door and we found it very convenient to visit our 'neighbours' for advice, excursion ideas and house instructions. Thanks for a great holiday Julie and Tim

Hi Tim, thanks ever so much for the fantastic review. We agree; the location is just perfect, nestled between Penrith and Ullswater! Very handy for popping to our local market town for bits and bobs and only a stones throw from Ullswater, where you can enjoy all the Lake has to offer. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the comfort of Bumblebee. Our aim has always been to provide a homely cottage, where our guests can relax and enjoy being tucked away down the short little lane. I hope we see you all again to fit in some more walks around the local area and beyond!

Washing machine would be nice after a sweating day on the hills and clothes really need refreshing

Thank you for your review, we were so pleased you and your family managed to experience a variety of walking days out during the week. As noted in the accommodation summary information we don't have a washing machine at Bumblebee Nook but do have 2 laundrettes in our local town of Penrith, a small clothes rail is available for the drying of clothes.
We hope to welcome you and your family again

Bumblebee Nook is a charming, homely and well appointed cottage in a great location. Spotlessly clean, and well cared for.

Julie and Tim the owners who live next door are on hand to help with any questions. As outdoor enthusiasts they are very knowledgable to the local area and can give ideas and advice for things to do, and places to go, especially if you do not know the area well.

The location is perfect for exploring the Eden Valley, and the Central Lakes area around Ullswater and surroundings, even to the Pennines and Hadrian’s Wall area with excellent hiking, biking and waterspouts short distances away. Convenient to for Penrith for any shopping requirements. Would thoroughly recommend.

Thank you, it's wonderful to welcome fellow enthusiasts of the outdoor world, the Northern Lakes has something to offer for a variety of hobbies from walking, cycling, sailing etc and also quiet spaces to relax and recharge the batteries. Hope on your next visit you find other hidden and forgotten locations in Northern England.
