Step through into the refreshing sitting and dining area, enhanced wonderfully with light-filled floor-to-ceiling windows and even offering an attractive woodburning stove for the chillier months, you can also find a charming painting of a barn owl in this room, representing the owl that lives in the trees just outside of the property, be sure to keep an eye out for him!

Off of here, you will find the three immaculate bedrooms; two kings and a twin benefit from tastefully modern layouts and play host to their own luxurious en-suite facilities.

The summer months are a true delight here at Horse Spout, as a wonderful decking area wraps itself around the property, hosting plenty of furniture and a BBQ for those tasty alfresco summer feasts.

You can even make the most of your own private hot tub, perfect to indulge with a glass of bubbly in hand whilst observing the beauty of the wild garlic and bluebells growing in the woodlands opposite; it’s definitely a sight to see!

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.
