Positioned in the delightful hamlet of Newby Bridge, just south of Lake Windermere, lies this charming dwelling, 4 Railway Cottages. Boasting a contemporary yet classic interior, this property is perfect for any train enthusiasts as it overlooks the vintage steam train railway line of the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway, so you can look forward to catching sight of amazing locomotives. After a busy day of adventures, come back to the comfort of the cottage, entering the sitting room to sink into one of the plush, grey sofas and flicking on the TV, with a woodburning stove in here to keep you warm on a winter's eve. Head into the attractive kitchen/diner where shaker style units house excellent appliances for cooking your family favourite dishes, all to be enjoyed around the classic farmhouse dining table and chairs, with a utility room providing extra space for the appliances. Dine alfresco at the bistro set out in the fenced garden, complete with a neat lawn and a patio area which overlooks the railway, so you can spot the trains coming and wave to them as they pass!
