  • "Upon arrival the apartment was spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished and a well appointed kitchen with biscuits on arrival."

    The immediate vicinity was quiet and peaceful, just sound of the river and pleasant view from front and rear of the property. The apartment was situated within easy walking distance of the bus stop, and the Stagecoach service gave us access to various parts of the district. We enjoyed the woodland walks full of bluebells, ferns & trees. We enjoyed our stay so much we have booked to go again.

  • "Lovely modern apartment which was very clean and comfortable."

    Has two balconies. The rear one overlooks the river and gets the morning sunshine. Unfortunately the almost constant traffic noise took the edge off the enjoyment. Other than that very pleased. Took the steam train (only a short walk from the room) to lakeside and The boat along lake Windermere. Motor museum and aquarium close by. All in all an enjoyable week.

  • "Great base for exploring the Lake District."

    Property was warm and welcoming and with great facilities to use. Built in sympathy with the local environment and heritage; there was also a choice of two lovely balconies to access and sit outside if needed. It was lovely seeing the steam train pass each day on its way to Lake Windermere. We were blessed with good weather so this was a great base to use. The owner was also very kind and helpful when we needed advice about something. Would highly recommend this property to anybody.

  • "Accomodation was a bit smaller than we expected but a perfect base for doing things in this area."

    There were two heat detectors in the livingroom/kitchen area and everyday they went off even though we had the extractor fan on & every window & balcony door open, regardless of whether we were making a slice of toast or a meal in the oven. I know legislation dictates where and how many detectors there are but they are extremely sensitive.

    None left for Sykes because if they are in the least bit negative then Sykes do not publish feedback, so therefor a waste of time.

  • "Leven View is a fantastic apartment for two people."

    The owners make themselves available if you have any problems; e.g. where is the cutlery drawer :) The little gifts left for you on arrival are also very much appreciated. The apartment is ideally situated for exploring the Lake District, but also allows you to access local walks from your doorstep. Inside, it is immaculate and has everything you need for your stay. The two balconies are a bonus. The only negative is the road noise on the back balcony as it takes away the serene sound of the running river water. All-in-all, I would definitely recommend this place if you are a couple and need a good base for a holiday to the Lake District.

  • "Leven View was well appointed & well looked after."

    It was modern & comfortable & felt home from home. Nice touches like fresh flowers & a box of biccies was appreciated. Seating & bed was very comfortable & a large TV with amazon prime was welcomed. The owners had obviously chosen carefully on its decor & soft furnishings & maintained everything to a high standard. 2 verandas front & back we're nice & used the back (facing the river) more. There is some road noise but it didn't detract from the overall pleasantness. Leven View is one of the best self catering properties we've stayed in & wholeheartedly recommend it. Thank you Gary & Michaela.

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.
