The property

Settled besides a rushing river in the quaint village of Backbarrow within the Lake District National Park, rests this stylish apartment, Rivers Edge.

With its contemporary interior and balconies to soak in the countryside sights, this duplex apartment is ideal for a family or six friends seeking an escape to the Lakes.

Upon arrival, discover your designated parking space before exploring the communal garden, enveloped by greenery.

Step inside to let your holiday commence, where you will find a hallway to kick-off your shoes and discard your coats after your journey.

Locate the open-plan living space, with its bright and airy layout and matte charcoal grey kitchen, hosting an electric oven, halogen hob and microwave for culinary delights.

For a fuss-free clean, make use of the washer/dryer and dishwasher, so you don’t need to worry about making a mess as you cook up a storm!

When dinner is piping hot, settle down at the quirky dining table to tuck-into delicious meals and why not uncork a bottle of fizz to toast to a wonderful getaway?

After dinner, unwind on the grey corner sofa in front of the wall-mounted TV; snuggle up with your loved ones with popcorn and enjoy a film night-in.

Throw open the patio door to discover a private decking area, where you can watch the sky grow dark with a hot chocolate before getting ready for bed.

As your eyes grow heavy, retire upstairs where a family bathroom entices you to relish a soak in the tub or the waterfall overhead shower allures you to take a rinse.

Three beautiful bedrooms await to rest your head, choose between a king-size with its own en-suite, a double with balconies where you can admire the scenery of the Haverthwaite railway and a cosy twin bedroom.

In the morning, why not awaken with a refreshing walk along the river before making use of the appliances in the kitchen to rustle up a home-cooked breakfast?

Explore the local attractions, where you can go back in time in a traditional coach on Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, unveil historical vehicles at Lakeland Motor Museum or test your escape skills at Cliffhanger Rooms.

For fantastic wildlife visit the Predator Experience to get up close to wolves, marvel at marine life at Lakes Aquarium or enjoy a peaceful stroll around Hay Bridge Nature Reserve.

Venture to the sprawling town of Bowness-on-Windermere to relive your childhood at The World of Beatrix Potter or test your golf at a superb golf course and embark on an adventure around the lovely Lake Windermere.

For a much-needed getaway, whisk your favourite people to Rivers Edge.

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. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, plus 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, and admire the views at nearby Gummer's How.
