Glorious countryside surround this spacious and well maintained property which is located between Lake Windermere and the Cartmel Peninsula.

Set in glorious countryside between the Cartmel Peninsula and the southern tip of Lake Windermere, near Newby Bridge, this stylishly refurbished farmhouse, one of a pair, offers spacious rooms and beautiful views for a relaxing holiday in the heart of the southern Lake District. Situated near a small, family run, quiet and secluded caravan site amidst the woodland and picturesque fells, the farmhouse is a perfect base for visiting the multitude of nearby visitor attractions. Fell Foot Park, two miles away on Lake Windermere offers boating and fishing, from there you can take the ferry to Lakeside and board the boat to Bowness, to wander around the boutiques, galleries, tea rooms and the Beatrix Potter Exhibition. On the other side of the lake is Lakeside village, 2 miles, home to the Aquarium of the Lakes, and the Lakeside to Haverthwaite Steam Railway, with the Lakeland Motor Museum near Haverthwaite. The area is a walking and cyling paradise and a scenic drive alongside Lake Windermere through Bowness, Windermere and Ambleside will bring visitors to The Langdale Pikes where many scrambles or hikes lead to the mountain tops with the reward of amazing views. The famous poet, William Wordsworth, loved this area and a visit to his former house, Dove Cottage at Grasmere (opposite the beautiful lake) is well worth while. The southern Lake District abounds with historic houses and gardens, including Holker Hall and gardens, the 12th Century Priory at Cartmel, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall and gardens. Shop and garage 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1/2 mile.

    Directions provided by the owners were very good and got to the cottage straight away. key collection was very easy and we were given a brief tour of the cottage. Our party consisted of 5 adults and an 18 month old toddler and all of the rooms were very spacious. The nearest towns to pick up provisions were Grange Over Sands (20 min drive) or opposite direction Bowness on Windermere (20 min drive). The nearest pub was about 3 mile away so we bough food and drink at the Spar in Grange over Sands and stayed in every night. Lovely location and scenic views from every window. My two sons appreciated the games room with a pool table and dart board. Excellent location for South Lakes Safari Park.

    Lovely property, we stayed here with our 2 babies and my parents. Plenty of space for us all. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the views from the lounge were stunning. All the facilities you would expect, and a great location for exploring the Lake District. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

    An absolutely beautiful property. Only five minutes' drive from Lakeside at the bottom of Lake Windermere, we stayed here with our 14 month old son for a quiet family vacation. The location was perfect and the house just amazing. Three really great sized bedrooms, a lovely dining room and kitchen and a fantastic upstairs living room with beautiful views, not overlooked by anything. We loved it and will definitely look to stay here again the next time we are in the Lakes.
