  • Miss Collinge

    “The bed was just so small we had 3 very poor nights sleep, which spoilt the holiday.”

    The sofa was also very uncomfortable but everything else was great in terms of facilities and cleanliness.

The property

The contemporary and the rustic blend seamlessly in this tastefully converted Lakeland barn.

Abbots Reading Mews 2 is the ideal country retreat for a couple, and enjoys delightful wooded gardens along with a special location between Lake Windermere and Coniston Water in lovely South Lakes countryside.

Forget those everyday cares in your own Lakeland hideaway! Step into an older world at Abbots Reading, where life seems that little bit slower and simpler!

Nature is all around you, and deer and other wild animals are regular visitors.

The sympathetically converted barn is part of a pretty courtyard, with natural woodlands and ponds beyond, and is a lovely place to spend your Lakelovers holiday.

Despite the sleepy setting there is plenty to do here.

Romantic strolls amongst the woods and green rolling landscapes all around you and days out on the steamers that cruise Lake Windermere from Lakeside pier will make your break special.

We suggest, too, a visit to the Swan Hotel beside the river at Newby Bridge for some great food and relaxation in the excellent spa facilities, and a romantic journey into the Levens Valley on the vintage steam trains that run on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway.

Back home, the romantic bedroom is both stylish and comfortable, and convenient, too, with its en-suite bath and power shower room.

You will certainly enjoy those lazy mornings here spent watching television on the wall-mounted flatscreen.

The vaulted, oak-beamed open-plan living/dining/kitchen space is charming and characterful, with all you need to pamper yourselves during your time away!

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.
