  • Mr Baxter

    “Excellent property in an excellent location with woodland walks on the local footpaths, short drives to the dunes at Roanhead and Haverigg, and options of routes into the central lakes that avoid the often horrific Windermere-Ambleside crush.”

    The owners live nearby, were very helpful and have paid attention to detail in making the property comfortable, relaxing and functional. As a family of four we couldn't fault it.

About the location


Newby Bridge 1 mile; Bowness-on-Windermere 10 miles.

The small village of Backbarrow sits by the banks of the River Leven and the southern tip of Lake Windermere. The famous Haverthwaite Steam Railway runs close by the village between Haverthwaite and Lakeside. Enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or visit 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, and 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. Set amidst the charm of the Lake District, close to the fringe of Windermere, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to forage further into a magical heartland of silver lakes, lofty towering peaks and lonely gorse clad moors.
