Attractions near your Backbarrow holiday cottage

Behold Backbarrow, a quaint Elizabethan village in the shadow of the Lake District's beautiful fells. The village is famed for its ties to the industrial revolution, when the first efficient blast furnace was built in the area back in 1711.

Today, the village takes pride in its industrial heritage. The blast furnace - which closed in the 1960s after 250 years of use - was declared a scheduled ancient monument, and guided tours of the site are available. Other attractions not to be missed in Backbarrow include the Lakeland Motor Museum, which features a collection of over 30,000 transport exhibits, as well as Bigland Hall Equestrian, a horse farm offering guided treks in the surrounding Lakeland countryside.

Travel further afield on your Backbarrow cottage break and expect adventure and intrigue at every turn. Being at the southern tip of Windermere, a Backbarrow cottage is a great base for exploring the Lake District National Park or the beaches along Cumbria's stunning coastline.

Take a hike in the beautiful Grizedale Forest or a boat trip on the waters of Windermere. Buy gingerbread in Grasmere or stop off at a country inn in Ambleside. Pay a visit to Wordsworth House in Cockermouth or lay your towel on the sands of Aldingham beach. When you rent a cottage in Backbarrow with Sykes, the choice is yours.
