    “Great location and very easy to find.”

    Very clean, spacious and comfortable accommodation. The kitchen had everything we needed. There were games and books and lots of local information for walks and attractions. This place is a great base to explore the southern part of the Lake District by car, on foot, by bus or you can take the local steam train (just 10 mins walk front door) up to Lakeside (southern tip of Lake Windermere) and either take a boat from there or take a walk in the surrounding area.

    Very clean, spacious and comfortable accommodation. The kitchen had everything we needed. There were games and books and lots of local information for walks and attractions. This place is a great base to explore the southern part of the Lake District by car, on foot, by bus or you can take the local steam train (just 10 mins walk front door) up to Lakeside (southern tip of Lake Windermere) and either take a boat from there or take a walk in the surrounding area. The accommodation was in a safe, quiet area, next to the river with private parking and outside space to sit and eat.

Bruach, which sleeps four people and has off-road parking and a spacious open-plan design, is the ideal starting point for your explorations in Cumbria. When you enter your new home, you'll be impressed by the fully-stocked kitchen, which is perfect for whipping up delicious meals for your family to enjoy at the dining table for four.

If the weather starts to cool off, find a warm sitting space with a Smart TV so you and your loved ones may enjoy a movie night while you recline on the plush sofas. Choose from a king-size with en-suite shower room and a double with a fabulous balcony to catch some shut-eye in before waking up to begin your exciting itinerary. There is a family bathroom to indulge in a soak in the bath before finishing your evening routine. Enjoy the nearby Lakeland Motor Museum or take a stroll down the River Leven from your front door, making sure to stop at the National Trust-owned Fell Foot or Lakes Aquarium along the way. Visit historic Ulverston where you have a variety of pubs, restaurants and cafes, to chose from or stock up on the necessities at the independent shops. Spend the day at Holker Hall and gardens or Cartmel and its racecourse is a grand day out too, as well as a plethora of walking, hiking, and cycling possibilities that sprinkle the rolling hills, for a variety of watersports and activities.

About the location

BACKBARROW

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.
