    “The accommodation was totally above & beyond my expectations.”

    Everything just seemed like brand new & the surrounding grounds were perfect & you only had to leave the grounds to have incredible scenic walks in any direction... & Windermere is only 16 minutes away by car. I've stopped in a few cottages in the past, but none have been this nice.

The property

Escape the rat race in this beautifully converted Lakeland barn.

The Abbots Reading cottages are surrounded by lovely natural woodlands, and you are perfectly situated to explore the South Lakes.

Full of rustic features, yet fully modernised, your barn will become your home while you stay with us here.

Deep in the Lake District countryside at the southern end of Lake Windermere, the rolling hills and valleys round about are ripe for exploration, and you will always have plenty to see and do before returning to the welcoming comfort of your barn. Lakeside nearby has a steamer pier, allowing you to cruise England's longest lake and visit the bustling centres of Bowness and Ambleside to the north.

There is a platform here, too, for the wonderful Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, which will draw you by vintage engines into the lush Levens Valley.

Enticing Eateries and country inns are dotted about the green countryside. Inside your cottage, oak beams suspended in a vaulted ceiling set the scene for country living, and the tasteful modernity of this barn conversion will assure you of a supremely restful break.

The excellently arranged wooden kitchen is the perfect place to prepare meals with your party, and if you choose not to sit at the adjacent dining table you can take your foot outside onto the patio. The deer and other wildlife that frequently visit Abbots Reading know that this is a perfectly peaceful haven in which to enjoy time away from the world.

We know you will come away from your stay here satisfyingly refreshed and rejuvenated!

About the location


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.
