    “The location was fantastic.”

    Right on the banks of the river Leven in great countryside. The cottage was ideal for the four of us and the two dogs. Swan Hotel across the bridge was great as was the Newby Bridge Inn.

The property

This charming character apartment nestles on the banks of the River Leven, in a magical setting at the southern outlet of Lake Windermere. Riverbank Hideaway occupies the ground floor part of an original Lakeland barn on the water's edge, converted with taste and style, with hand upholstered luxurious fabrics to create a special holiday retreat. Perfect for couples or a small family, the riverside setting is idyllic all year round. You'll find contemporary styling and sheer elegance throughout the accommodation, which extends to a furnished riverside garden. Picnicking, canoeing and fishing are just a few of the ways you'll make the most of nearby access to the lake. Just 100 yards over the bridge is your fabulous local at the Swan Hotel and Spa. Idyllic! == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars, right outside the apartment. Enter to the newly refurbished, cosy but bright lounge with character beams, deep-cushioned furnishings and a view over the water. Neat, well-equipped kitchen open to the dining area, which also has superb views. Spacious master double bedroom and 2nd bedroom with 4 ft bed. Modern Shower room. Outside, you'll find magical riverside gardens and furnished patio overlooking the water. There is now newly fitted double glazing all round. Location At the southern tip of Lake Windermere where the River Leven flows out, this self-catering apartment situated in Newby Bridge takes you away from the crowds to a fabulous riverside location. Close to the A590 you'll enjoy great access to the many attractions of the Southern and Western Lake District and very easily accessible from the M6 - bypassing the busier tourist routes. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Lakeside Pier. These elegant Windermere steamers ferry passengers to Bowness and Ambleside - a relaxed way to explore and admire the scenery without having to use your car. There are several popular Lake District family attractions in Lakeside. The Lakes Aquarium displays local freshwater creatures, right next to one end of the Lakeside-Haverthwaite Railway - take a ride on a fabulous old-fashioned steam train! Also close by is the Motor Museum and the popular Cafe Ambio, just a little further down the river.

About the location


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.
