    “We loved our stay at Bobbin Mill which was spotlessly clean and very appointed.”

    The location is great, near plenty of attractions and eateries but tucked away so it was peaceful. We thank you so much for the bird feeders and food as the plethora of bold and beautiful birds that visited, delighted us all day, every day. The rabbits and deer were bonus. I have to say we didn't think the sloping ceilings would bother us, but it did a tad, and we were glad the weather was moderate and not hot as the aga in the kitchen would have made hob cooking unbearable. The electric oven ...

    The location is great, near plenty of attractions and eateries but tucked away so it was peaceful. We thank you so much for the bird feeders and food as the plethora of bold and beautiful birds that visited, delighted us all day, every day. The rabbits and deer were bonus. I have to say we didn't think the sloping ceilings would bother us, but it did a tad, and we were glad the weather was moderate and not hot as the aga in the kitchen would have made hob cooking unbearable. The electric oven is a good addition to a very well equipped kitchen, loved the big fridge. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.

About the location

LAKESIDE

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

Set on the southern shores of Lake Windermere, the small, sleepy hamlet of Lakeside offers a peaceful getaway location, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the Lake District’s popular attractions, but still within easy reach of them. Whether you decide to discover the area in the car, by foot, bike, boat or steam, there’s plenty to see nearby to keep the whole family content. The ferry dock offers the chance to travel by boat to Waterhead or Bowness, or take a shorter trip to the National Trust’s Fell Foot Park, across the water, which offers pretty grounds set alongside the very tip of the lake, providing plenty of places for picnics, paddling, games and gentle strolls on sunny afternoons. Situated alongside the Lakeside Station is the long-standing Lakeside and Haverwaithe Railway, home to Britain’s oldest standard gauge steam engine, on which you can travel back in time along this well-loved Heritage line, and where little ones will delight in meeting Thomas and his friends. Visit the Lakes Aquarium to uncover the often-secretive world of life below water, where you’ll chance upon hundreds of captivating creatures that feature in the surrounding rivers, lakes and sea. There are wonderful, well-signed walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area, including the 5-mile route to Finsthwaite’s High Dam, which trails from Lakeside through pleasant woodlands and meadows. Lakeside offers an exclusive holiday location with all of the Lake District’s delights at your fingertips.
