The property

Nestled within the Lake District National Park, River View is a well-appointed apartment set inside a brand-new 2020 luxury development on the bank of the River Leven. Providing easy access to the Southern Lakes and Furness Peninsula, this romantic dwelling is perfect for couples looking for plenty of outdoor adventure within this scenic part of England. Enter from the front door onto the first floor, with the stylish bathroom off to the side, consisting of a bath and shower over, sink with vanity mirror and a large heated towel rail. Move into the open-plan living space, with contemporary furnishings including the chic sofa, Smart TV and additional lighting. The well-equipped kitchen houses a range of integrated appliances around the Corian style worktops and local slate splashback, which is sure to encourage home-cooking when you’re not dining at a local restaurant. At the other side of the room is the double bed which fits neatly into the corner, providing charming riverside views to wake up to, or step out onto the private balcony and listen to the relaxing sound of the water trickling by. The apartment rests just a short walk away from local attractions including the historic Haverthwaite steam railway that runs (in season) from Haverthwaite to Lakeside, where cruises across Lake Windermere lead to Ambleside and Bowness, also within walking distance are the Lakeland Motor Museum, Café Ambio, Cliffhanger Escape Rooms and the Whitewater Hotel with its Spa and Leisure Club (day passes available) plus bar and bistro restaurant overlooking the river, nearby outdoor activities include horse-riding at Bigland Hall, Cartmel races through the year, Holker Estate and gardens, cycle trails and Go Ape experiences in Grizedale forest, fell walks, and water sports opportunities on Windermere or Coniston Water. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate exploring the National Trust owned Fell Foot park or take a hike through Hay Bridge nature reserve, before heading north to the hustle and bustle of Bowness-on-Windermere for a range of independent shops and attractions. For eating out, this offers a great selection of dining options, from Michelin star restaurants to gastro pubs and casual cafés. River View is an immaculate apartment to enjoy the breathtaking Lake District National Park at any time of year.

About the location


Newby Bridge 1 mile; Bowness-on-Windermere 10 miles.

The small village of Backbarrow sits by the banks of the River Leven and the southern tip of Lake Windermere. The famous Haverthwaite Steam Railway runs close by the village between Haverthwaite and Lakeside. Enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or visit the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Set amidst the charm of the Lake District, close to the fringe of Windermere, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to forage further into a magical heartland of silver lakes, lofty towering peaks and lonely gorse clad moors.

Please note: There will be essential maintenance in the building [between 9.30am and 3pm)which should not affect the flat itself finishing around 8th August 2023.
