  • "A wonderful week spent at Otter Tarn ."

    The house was absolutely perfect. Set beside a lake and surrounded by countryside; the perfect getaway to relax and recharge. A short drive to great walks, the Windermere ferry , steam train and lots of attractions. The house is furnished to a 5 star standard , clean and well maintained . Hot tub and log fire added to the relaxing stay . Highly recommend. The owners were so friendly and helpful and provided a great list of places to eat and visit , which came in very handy .

    We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your kind review. Love, Kath x Property Owner

The property

Hosting a lot of character Tewits is a delightful space to spend your holidays.

Within the property you can find a photo of a hare; representing the hare outside the property which has made its forever-home in the maturing rockery, you may even spot it returning home after a busy day of exploring the woodlands around you.

Inside you can also find a convivial open-plan living space which has beautiful views across the grounds of the lawns and woodlands, a designer kitchen, a superb sitting area with woodburning stove and underfloor heating.

Leading from the living area are two super king-size double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms and one twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

Hop outside onto the back of the property where you can find your own private hot tub sheltered under the trees and nestled within a Lakeland dry wall, offering a delightful spot to listen to birdsong all year round, particularly in the spring where you will be surrounded by a mass of beautiful bluebells.

This superbly-equipped and furnished cottage makes a wonderful base at any time of the year.

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.

Note: Max 6 people, plus 1 infant.
