    “Lovely stay at Tanyard cottage.”

    Kitchen was well equipped. Bed was soft and warm. Neutral and modern decor but still had charm. Only issue we had was limited parking spots if there were other cars parked on the road. Sofa isn’t the comfiest but was fine for us. Lovely walks on your doorstep.

The property

Newby Bridge 2.2 miles. Tanyard Home is a traditional, pet-friendly cottage located in the hamlet of Finsthwaite near Newby Bridge, Cumbria. You'll enjoy easy access to Grizedale and Lake Windermere, as well as a lovely, open-plan living area for a family of three to call home, thanks to its ideal location in the Lake District National Park. Find roadside parking next to the cottage and follow six slate steps down to the front, enclosed patio area, a perfect site to enjoy your tranquil, rural surroundings with a hot cup of coffee. After kicking off your boots and drying the dog in the porch, step inside to warm your feet on the beautiful slate floor with underfloor heating, admire the old beams, and contemporary touches. In the stylish kitchen area, rustle up your favourite home-cooked meals, complete with a washing machine to sort dirty walking gear and a dishwasher for fast clean-ups. Plan your holiday activities over a heart-warming meal for four at the dining table, then settle into the corner sofa in front of the TV with DVD player; fire up the woodburning stove and spread a blanket for your pooch to rest their paws. Climb the stairs after a fun-filled day of sightseeing for a hot shower, while your towel toasts on the heated towel rail in the shower room. Retire to your well-appointed king-size or single room, complete with wooden furnishings and ample storage. You'll be in the heart of Finsthwaite, a quaint hamlet with a relaxed environment and plenty of wonderful walks right on your doorstep; go to High Dam or along the Lake Windermere shoreline, then reward yourself with a well-deserved pint at The Swan Hotel. Boat trips along the lake, Windermere Golf Club, and The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction are all within a short drive to Bowness-on-Windermere and Windermere. Hiking or mountain biking through lovely woodland for spectacular mountain vistas awaits outdoor enthusiasts at Grizedale! If that's not your thing, take a ride in an old-fashioned coach on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway to view the Lake District's renowned landscape, while the picturesque towns of Hawkshead, Grange, Ambleside, and Coniston are all just a short drive away. Book a stay at Tanyard Cottage for a classic, pet-friendly cottage in the Lake District.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £120.

About the location


Newby Bridge 1.2 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 8.7 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.
