  • "Our first visit to the garden suite!"

    ! Couldn’t have asked for any more! The owners have thought of everything! The views and the garden outside our window were absolutely amazing. 10/10 from us!

    Many thanks for your feedback James. We are really pleased you enjoyed your visit to us and were able to take advantage of some of the many local walks. Property Owner

  • "The Garden Suite was the perfect place to stay on our first visit to the lakes."

    The property is well situated for exploring the area and is a wonderfully cosy retreat to come home to after a day walking. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and could not have hoped for a better holiday. The hosts Gill and Phil were welcoming and friendly while giving us space to enjoy our holiday but were on hand if we needed anything.

    Thank you for your kind words. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and your first visit to the lakes. Property Owner

  • "The welcome was first class, the rooms spotless and the owner was easily contactable if needed."

    My only concern as an older person is that the sofa is too low to the floor and so very hard to get out of - please could you consider raising it on blocks - easily available - to make sure that it is truly comfy for all. Weather was mixed but we still had a very good holiday. Thank you we would definitely recommend you to anyone.

    Thanks for your feedback Jane. We are working on purchasing a raised cushion seat for our visitors who prefer a higher seat. Property Owner

  • "Phil and Gill were excellent hosts who provided a more than comfortable stay in the Lakes."

    They have a beautiful property that made the stay feel warm and homely. They were helpful, giving tips and advice about staying in the area, and they went the extra mile to ensure we had a great stay; for example, doing a load of our washing for us! Thanks very much for a great week. Tim & Becky - Southampton P.S. (we forgot to write in the guest book, so if you want, feel free to copy this note!)

  • "A lovely peaceful cottage in a very good location for exploring many areas of the Lake District, particularly Coniston, Hawkshead and the less popular south."

    Gill and Phillip were welcoming and friendly hosts who provided lots of useful information and have carefully thought about how to ensure their guests can immediately relax and enjoy their holiday. For me it was an excellent base for walking many trails and a relaxing place to return to at the end of each day.

  • "One of the absolute best places I have stayed!"

    From start to finish, I really did feel at home. There was nothing I needed that wasn't available through my stay. I was able to choose walks based off their recommendations within the area and found myself having a really great time. I had never been to the Lakes so I found that the welcome information I was given by email and in the suite, was extremely useful. Location wise, it was perfect. I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay, everything seemed to be within 10-20 minutes of the suite and the roads were really quiet so I found the drives really enjoyable. Gill and Phillip went above and beyond from a hosting perspective and I am ever so grateful for the experience. I really would love to stay there again. I was able to speak to Gill and Phillip through my stay and I am really happy I did, they are a wonderful couple and I hope that future guests appreciate the space they have created for others'.

The property

Tucked away amongst the generous grounds of the owner's home, on the outskirts of Newby Bridge in Cumbria rests this delightful stone-built holiday home, Garden Suite at Fiddlers Hall Barn.

A paradise for outdoor adventurers and lovers alike, Garden Suite at Fiddlers Hall Barn enjoys a peaceful, rural location, providing an idyllic base for an escape to the country.

Park up in the off-road space and marvel at your exquisite countryside surroundings with a leisurely seat in your front garden before making your way inside your new home-from-home.

Stepping inside, be charmed by the open-plan layout of this lovely abode, sure to be the heart of the home, where a sumptuous king-size bed and a snug sitting area are thoughtfully laid out to settle down of an evening with your loved one.

Follow the door through to the beautifully-designed kitchen/diner, where the electric oven and hob, along with a host of helpful amenities, whip up a selection of delectable dishes throughout your stay to be enjoyed over candlelight at the dining table for two.

Make the most of your fellside position by dining alfresco amongst the rolling greenery of the rear garden; a truly lovely spot to watch the stars light up the skies with your favourite tipple in hand.

When the day draws to a close, prepare for bed in the stylish bathroom, where you can choose between indulging in a blissful soak amongst the bubbles in the bath, or washing away the day with a quick rinse under the shower head.

Drift off to the sound of your favourite show playing on the television and wake up as the sun rises over the rolling hills and floods the room with light.

Take advantage of your rural location and grab your walking boots and follow the footpath that leads directly from the garden through the peaceful countryside that envelops your holiday home; embark on a hike to the summit of the nearby fells, or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll through the vast open moorland.

Add a touch of luxury to your stay and head into the heart of Newby Bridge to indulge in an elegant afternoon at The Swan Hotel and Spa; unwind with a soak in the hot tub or treat yourself to a glass of bubbly and enjoy the spectacular fellside views.

Whilst you're in the area, be sure to visit the glistening waters of Lake Windermere, famed as the largest lake in England, where you can try your hand at kayaking or stand up paddle boarding, or for a more leisurely experience, enjoy a cruise along the water to the town of Windermere.

For a change of pace, the town of Bowness-on-Windermere is a popular choice, home to a bustling nightlife along with a host of daytime attractions to enjoy, including The Old Laundry Theatre and the world renowned World of Beatrix Potter Attraction.

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.
