    “Fantastic home from home.”

    As 3 mums we loved that everything was so clean. We had a great weekend chatting and laughing in the open plan living area really accommodates. Weather was beautiful.

The property

Rivers Edge is a contemporary apartment located next to a rushing river in the picturesque village of Backbarrow, which is part of the Lake District National Park. This duplex apartment is great for a family or six friends seeking a break to the Lakes, with its contemporary décor and terraces to take in the scenery. When you arrive, look for your designated parking spot before visiting the lush common garden. Be welcomed into the open-plan living area, which features a bright and spacious layout as well as a matte charcoal grey kitchen with an electric oven, halogen stove, and microwave for culinary delights. Use the washer/dryer and dishwasher for a hassle-free clean, and you won't have to worry about making a mess when you're cooking! When dinner is ready, settle down at the dining table to dig into delectable dishes, and celebrate your getaway with a bottle of bubbles. Unwind on the grey corner sofa and additional new chair, in front of the wall-mounted TV after dinner; snuggle up with your loved ones with popcorn and have a movie night-in. Open the patio door to reveal a secluded decking area with table and chairs, where you can savour a hot chocolate as the sky grows darker and the stars appear. As your eyes begin to glaze over, travel upstairs to a family bathroom where you can indulge in a blissful soak in the tub or a quick rinse in the overhead shower. Choose from a king-size room with its own en-suite or the double room, both with balconies to take in the landscape or take rest in the cosy twin room. Why not start your day with a pleasant walk along the river before rustling up a home-cooked breakfast with the kitchen's appliances? Explore the nearby attractions, such as Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, Lakeland Motor Museum, and Cliffhanger Rooms, where you can travel back in time on a traditional coach, learn about historical cars, and put your escape skills to the test. Visit the Predator Experience to get up close and personal with wolves, the Lakes Aquarium to marvel at aquatic life, or Hay Bridge Nature Reserve to take a calm stroll. Visit the vast town of Bowness-on-Windermere to relive your youth at The World of Beatrix Potter or put your golf skills to the test at a fantastic golf course before setting out on an adventure around the beautiful Lake Windermere. Bring your favourite people to Rivers Edge for a much-needed vacation.

About the location

NEWBY BRIDGE

Bowness-on-Windermere 8 miles.

The small village of Newby Bridge takes its name from the five arched stone bridge built in 1651 over the River Leven. The famous Furness Railway, one of Britain's oldest working standard gauge steam railways, runs between Haverthwaite and Newby Bridge. Visit the Lakeside Hotels and enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or enjoy 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, plus 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, and admire the views at nearby Gummer's How.

Please Note: There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £150 applicable to this property
