Had a very brief interaction...

We had a three night stay at Jays nest last weekend. This is a beautiful luxury cottage. The location is perfect only a 10 min walk into Bowness and about 20min to Windermere. There is a really lovely garden area with seating which is a real sun trap. Would definitely recommend. Ang is really friendly. We will certainly be back.
