    “The apartment is located right on the river.”

    Such a beautiful area, very quiet, and just a 2 min walk across the bridge to the swan pub. We found it very clean, and extremely comfortable (especially the beds) The view from the balcony/decking was stunning and very relaxing. ...

    Such a beautiful area, very quiet, and just a 2 min walk across the bridge to the swan pub. We found it very clean, and extremely comfortable (especially the beds) The view from the balcony/decking was stunning and very relaxing. The TV has netflix and PRIME so you just need to log into your account. There was every cooking utensil imaginable, the oven functional, so perfect for eating in (when the weather was too cold to sit outside in pub restaurants). The only thing I would say, is that we found the electric shower to be either boiling hot or freezing cold. It took a good few minutes to get the setting correct, and even then it was lukewarm a couple of times. I think for future visitors, this is the only thing that should probably be addressed. Everything else was amazing, and well worth the stay.

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.

"Note: For canoe/kayak storage please conform size prior to booking. Warning: Riverside location with open access to river "
