  • “Great location, easy drive to the south lakes and the coast and about 30 mins walk to the great Swan at Newby Bridge.”

    The flat is a high quality new build only recently completed. Could have done with another sofa and lacks wardrobe space but was comfortable and well kitted out in the kitchen and benefits from fibre broadband which was great.

The property

Ulverston 6.9 miles.

Nestled in Backbarrow near Ulverston in Cumbria, on the Ironworks Estate, is this delightful top-floor apartment, Come-Bye.

Sleeping up to two guests and enjoying views of the River Leven, Come-Bye is the perfect dwelling for a romantic escape to the countryside, with easy access to Lake Windemere and Cornishead Priory.

Park up in the onsite car park and climb the stairs to the second floor, where you can step into your new home away from home.

Be welcomed into the spacious sitting room, where you can look forward to cosying up with your loved one and enjoy a glass of wine whilst enjoying your favourite film on the Smart TV, as natural light streams in from the skylight which offers views of the nearby river.

Whip up a romantic meal for your other half in the well-equipped kitchen, with handy washer/dryer, before settling down to enjoy at the dining table and toasting to a wonderful holiday.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to the tastefully decorated double bedroom, where you can catch a refreshing nights embrace, before waking to delightful views from this room’s skylight.

Freshen up for the day in the contemporary shower room before a day of exploring your local surroundings.

Discover the activities right on your doorstep, where you can hop on an old-fashioned coach at the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and enjoy a scenic three-mile journey; immerse yourself in nature at the scenic site of Bigland Barrow or take a trip to the Lakeland Motor Museum, where you will find over 30,000 exhibits featuring vehicles throughout the ages and a delightful 1950s style café.

Take the short drive to the nearby village of Coniston, home to the vast Coniston Water where you can enjoy a splendid cruise on the National Trust – Steam Yacht Gondola, or venture out onto the water with a selection of watersports available from canoeing, boating, kayaks and paddle boarding.

A trip to the lakes is never quite complete without a visit to the famous Windemere, site of the expansive Lake Windemere, where you can also indulge in watersports, a cruise, or opt to climb the historical Queen Adelaide's Hill which overlooks the lake and the Langdale Pikes in the distance.

Literary fans will delight at The World of Beatrix Potter attraction which depicts the authors writing through a series on interactive exhibits as well as detailing her importance to the area’s conservation.

Come-Bye is a great opportunity to treat your loved one to a refreshing break in the heart of nature.

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.
