In 2009 Nab Cottage was listed at 23 in ‘Britain’s 50 best kept secrets’ by the Daily Telegraph. It is quoted as being, ‘One of the most mysterious and beautiful of all the Lake District’s traditional cottages, once lived in by the opium-eater Thomas De Quincey.’ It is a very special place to stay – standing alone beside a small lake and surrounded by mountains.
Adult English Summer School students live here with us at Nab Cottage, sharing the space and the facilities. Living here empowers everybody to make the most of each opportunity, each lesson, each day. There is constant interaction between everybody living at Nab Cottage. This interaction is all in English so the learning is steady and continuous.
The bedrooms are all cosy with beautiful views, and most have their own shower and toilet. There are 2 single rooms, (and another 2 single rooms in our annex 500m along the lake), and eight rooms for 2 people. Downstairs there is a sitting room with log fire, a TV room, a piano room, dining rooms, and a large farmhouse kitchen.
