    “Absolutely stunning location!”

    ...

    The cottage was in a perfect location close by to lots of amenities. It was very clean and modern with lovely nice touches added. It was great to see the steam train passing by just over the river which is very close by. Our youngest son even tried out paddleboarding which was available on the lake just outside the Swan Hotel. We would without doubt recommend this cottage but the only downside to it was that it didn't describe thoroughly enough that the cottage is infact upstairs and not via the ground floor of which my disabled husband found difficult at times in getting up and down the outside stairs. Many thanks for a lovely welcoming 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 "
