  • "Great holiday in a lovely little well equipped cottage in a nice quiet spot in South Lakes, but still within easy reach of towns/villages and close to Lake Windermere and Coniston Water."

    The owners are next door if needed but leave you to it. We have already booked to go back again.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your time with us. We look forward seeing you both again in August. Property Owner

  • "We found the property well equipped, easy for parking on site and cosy."

    Ideal for two people max. An excellent base for 'getting away from it all' and for walking in the southern Lakes. Loads of superb pub options for evening meals. Nearest shops etc around 15 mins drive away (Newby Bridge) down delightful country lanes. Would highly recommend a stay in this lovely setting.

    The cottage is lovely and so well equipped. Anne and David are great and helpful if we needed anything. One comment is thanks for the clean oven again! So often I find in holdiaday cottages that the ovens are not clean and it is disappointing. So thank you for maintaing your high standards of cleanliness. We will be back again hopefully in 2025 as the cottage suits us very well.

    Thank you. It was lovely to see you again! Property Owner

    A lovely property in a lovely location. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and the stay, though only for a few days, was relaxing and peaceful which was exactly what we were looking for. The dog enjoyed herself as well!

    The owners were very helpful when there was an issue with the shower. Just don't attempt the lane right outside the cottage as short cut to Hawkshead....unless you have a 4x4 and nerves of steel! I would stay here again, a hidden corner of the Lakes. Would recommend the Greenwood trails walking leaflets in the cottage to explore further

  • "We had a lovely stay at Rusland View."

    The cottage was very clean and comfortable it has a lovely wood burner which we didn’t get to use because the weather was really warm for our stay but i can imagine on a winters night how cosy it would be. The owners who live next door were very pleasant and helpful. we live on the Yorkshire Wolds and are used to Rural but Rusland View is very Rural with very narrow roads leading to it. It wasn’t a problem for us because you just have to drive very carefully. and the area around the cottage was lovely we had some lovely walks. The only thing that would put us off staying again was the very poor wi-fi. I know if you’re on your holidays you shouldn’t need to rely on wi-fi but you absolutely do these days. we need to keep in touch with elderly relatives etc when we away. The wi-fi was so poor it wouldn’t even let us access emails at times so we had to make sure that was all done before we returned to the cottage at night. We did mention it to the owners who rebooted the modem at their end and it made it slightly better but nothing like we would expect. All in all it was excellent and apart from the wi-fi would be happy to give it 10 out of 10.

    It was clean and tidy and well maintained. The shower is amazing and so powerful. The kitchen was full of all the utensils that you need for a self catering holiday we cooked every night with no issues. There was washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets which was great as that was something we forgot. The surroundings are beautiful and we walked in the local area which was lovely. Lovely touches like umbrellas all at the front door which again was great when letting the dog out. Cosy living room with wood burner we didn’t use this as was not needed. Internet was good for what we needed. The bedroom is a little tight but think that is due to the very large bed in the room. Very quiet throughout the day and the night absolutely silent have struggled to sleep at home now due to cars driving past but I am sure I will get used to that again. We didn’t meet Anne however David was friendly and asked how our stay was. The cakes tea and coffee and doggie trays are a lovely touch l. Thank you for a lovely place to stay!

    It’s a charming cottage in an idyllic, peaceful location. Anne and Dave were really welcoming and helpful. The cottage is well fitted out, with a west-facing terrace so you can eat outside in the evening with the sun on your face, which is a real treat in the Lakes. It’s also nice and private. One thing we really appreciated after a long day walking was a proper shower - the number of times you go to a lovely cottage only to have to deal with some dribbling Triton thing, but not here. Altogether a lovely weekend.

Bed was firm but very comfortable. Sofa was leather and if you've ever sat one it feels really cold, but a blanket solved that issue! Views over the hills changed daily which was so lovely to see from the dining table. Ideal central location albeit several miles down a lane! for discovering the whole area. Ann went out of her way to make my birthday special. At the request of my hubby via email to her, there was surprise flowers and balloons waiting for me ( obviously at extra expense ) but it was such a memorable moment

    The pictures didn’t do it justice, it really was such a beautiful cottage we would love to come back to stay again. It was a little cold inside at times but with the time of year and it being an old cottage it is to be expected. The fire was a real treat too in the evenings. My partner absolutely loved the shower! Said it was the best she’s had in years! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook with, and we loved the views from all the rooms. Especially beautiful to wake up to in the morning. My partner literally laid at the bottom of the bed watching the clouds drift across the scenic views for ages with a cup of tea bought to her in bed. The walk up to High Dam was amazing, literally up the road which was lovely. The folder of things to do was helpful and we left a board game for other guests to use in the future. We bought cards with us but in the evening it’s nice to have a board game to play instead of the tv. Another lovely treat was the slices of cake waiting for us on arrival. Perfect with a cup of tea after a long journey. Couldn’t recommend this stay enough. Beautiful location, helpful, pleasant hosts. Thank you so much for the most perfect weekend.

However, it would be useful if there was guidance for the fireplace (for those not experienced at lighting and maintaining wood fires) in the handbook and warning on the listing site about the roads leading into and away from the cottage which are narrow and can be unnerving in the dark especially (for drivers who aren't used to these scenic roads).

    We spent a couple of days looking for somewhere that had everything we wanted and within our budget so when we are across this one it was put in the 'maybe' category with my only hesitation being the lack of reviews I could find so it felt a bit of a gamble. I needn't have worried though as the cottage was absolutely perfect and even better than we could have hoped. It was quiet, well appointed and with character and charm (as well as being much bigger than the photos suggest). The place was even decorated for Xmas which added to the charm. We were welcomed by the hosts who followed all Covid secure protocols and even had some freshly made shortbread waiting for us in the kitchen. The cottage is a bit out of the way, which was what we were looking for, but easy to find and with ample parking. It was easy enough to get to p,aces ,ike Ambleside and Windermere and close to some fantastic walks that we found in the books in the living room.

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.
