The luxury home from BBC drama The Nest is a real-life holiday rental

The spectacular house in new BBC drama The Nest can be your home away from home

A TV show’s filming location can sometimes feel like an additional character, such is their charm. As well as a gripping plot and terrific performances, a setting like Cape Cove – the home in BBC One’s new drama The Nest – is a visually beautiful bonus.

If you’ve been enjoying the emotional thriller – which revolves around a couple’s efforts to have a baby – you’ll be excited to learn that you can actually book to stay there (once the current Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, of course).

Perched on the banks of Loch Long in Scotland, the stunning contemporary beach house – available to rent via Holiday Cottages – is built on the site of a former World War Two naval outlook post.

Cape Cove

Designed by Cameron Webster architects, seamless floor-to-ceiling windows offer incredible views across the loch and the Firth of Clyde.

Providing a dramatic backdrop to the emotionally charged story, the award-winning property boasts a sleek, modern design. However, with a wood burner indoors and a fire pit on the terrace, it also manages to feel cosy, too.

Sleeping up to 10 people, with four double bedrooms, one twin room and four bathrooms, it’s the ideal setting for a family staycation or a weekend away with friends.

There’s plenty to keep everyone entertained during a stay, too. The holiday home boasts its own private beach (an ideal spot for some wild swimming), a five-decked terrace with state-of-the-art barbecue facilities, and a luxurious hot tub.

You can also fish for mackerel from the mini pier, arrange a charter boat to go sailing, or walk to nearby Tighe Choin, a micro gym with beautiful views.

A further short walk away you’ll find the tiny hamlet of Cove. Here there’s a rather welcoming pub that’s ideal for lunch and a taste of the local whisky.

So during the next episode of The Nest, start planning your first post-coronavirus escape to this impressive property.

Prices start from £2,039 for a seven-night stay. For more information, visit
