Well located situated between Bowness and Windermere and with excellent transport links to all parts of the Lake District and with great views this place has a lot going for it.
Unfortunately on our visit here we did have several issues, the place was not cleaned properly at all and the freezer section of fridge was iced up causing water to leak onto and spoil our food in the fridge.
There is mould growing on bathroom windows and various other points need to be addressed.
The owners were on holiday on our arrival and did not make any effort to contact us during our stay when they returned, so we did not meet them!
I would have expected a “welcome pack”of basic foodstuffs(tea,milk,bread etc) and cleaning products( wash up liquid, bleach etc) and Toilet rolls!!! To be provided as in EVERY other rental I have ever stayed in.
The filthy barbecue and slippy leaf covered decking were also unable to be used negating the benefits of the outside space.
It appeared that the owners seemed to have slipped into “end of season” mode a little early? And took there eye off the ball in regards to running there business!
I still rate this rental very good due to location,BUT I feel the owners need to re-focus and make sure they personally check all is well prior to all occupants arriving.
We really enjoyed our stay at jay's nest, it had everything we needed and more. It was very comfortable and a great place to go back to after visiting places around Windermere. A short walk to Windermere itself and about 20 minutes down to bowness (the lake), stocked with lovely little bars and restaurants. Although it rained everyday we found a peaceful night to have a little BBQ (provided) and a few drinks in the decking with lovely views. It was nice to see a deer outside the window too! We would definitely book again!
