If ever you have been lucky enough to stroll Penguin's main thoroughfare, passing quirky cafes, an old-style barber shop and a giant replica of the town's name-sake, you're also sure to have immersed yourself in the quiet, warm cocoon that is Nest. You enter its ochre door with salt in your nostrils and wind tousled hair, to be greeted with the friendliest smile by the most gentle of women. In mere moments you find solace; a calmness, a sanctuary. Mesmerised by the collections of beauty that fill every imaginable space, you let your eyes wander before deciding where to begin. You peruse slowly and with intent, soaking in every detail of the treasures placed so mindfully before you. A haven for both the handmade and the worldwide; for the local and the unique. Delicious scents linger, infusing the space and the mind, while indulgent conversation and indie tunes intertwine as melodies for the soul.

Nest is not simply a store, it is an experience...

For three years Nest has welcomed visitors from near and far, and so it is with a heavy, but excited heart that owner Nat announces that her little coastal retreat is for sale!

If ever you've dreamt of a blissful, seaside existence, in a quiet, quaint little town, filled to the brim with character and charm...

If ever you've imagined running your own small business, where you determine your working hours; where you are your own boss...

If ever you've entertained thoughts of nourishing and expressing your creative self, day in, day out...

then perhaps this is the most perfect opportunity for you?

yes, this is the actual view from inside the store!
