It is located at the heart of the Lake District National Park, midway between Windemere and Keswick, making it easily accessible by car, bus, train or coach. You can enjoy beautiful views of green rolling hills and expansive lakes all around you. The peaceful, tranquil setting makes Nab Cottage the perfect location for a rejuvenating and deeply restorative break to get away from it all. The cottage has a spacious yoga barn next to it with nature views and outdoor space, hot tub and pretty gardens. Take in stunning views of Rydal Water on your doorstep. Stroll into Rydal or Grasmere village during free time, go for a walk and enjoy seasonal produce. Or simply unwind in the yoga barn and chill out areas: it’s up to you.
