Cottage was lovely- clean, quirky and well-equipped. Loved the sitting room and fire place, and the local pub.

Excellent location and property. However, there have been lots of problems contacting the owner, including about contact/arrival details etc. Still awaiting a refund of the £150 deposit we paid even though we returned from our stay 4 weeks ago. We have contacted Owners Direct and whilst they have said they will contact the property owner immediately, 2 days later, I still have no message to inform me of the situation. What a shame, as the property itself is gorgeous.

Fantastic Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Nanny Goat Cottage is one of those hidden Gems you rarely come across,fortunatly we were lucky enough to enjoy a 2 week stay...The little details that most people dont see are all taken care off,from the High count sheets to the array of kitchen equipment....

We will definatley return to this property or the fantstic Broad oak (which is the BIG HOUSE on site)...I Had 2 issues with the property..



Many thanks

Very comfortable cottage in a tranquil rural setting .

Enjoyable & relaxing stay where the decor takes you to a bygone era. Unfortunately the laundry was unavailable when we really needed it & to far from any laundry facility.

Owner's Response: Hello.. So nice to hear from you ... Happy you enjoyed your stay, and we welcome you back anytime ... the laundry room is unavailable, but it does indicate that on the website when booking, as its been broken so many times.

  • Nanny Goat Cottage nestles in Broad Oaks Circa 1565 country estate in the Lake District National Park.The private Gardens and grounds are for the use of Guests. There are two Beautiful Lakes, which are nice to picnic by, and lots of woodland. The surrounding area has a wealth of good places to eat out, ( for all Tastes ). Lake Windermere is 7mile drive through nice country lanes passing many nice country Inns.The historic town of Kendal is but a short drive away where there are local markets and museums. Lots of lovely walks and drives out even to go along the coast and visit Barrow or Ulverston. This area remains an unspoilt part of the National Park, come along and see for yourselves.
