The property

"This contemporary retreat enjoys a lovely setting on the banks of the River Leven, at the southern tip of Lake Windermere.

The converted Lakeland barn is thoroughly modernised, with contemporary open plan living spaces sitting alongside some of the original features.

On the first floor into the porch, the living area enjoys fabulous views, vaulted ceiling and original beams.

The dining area has patio doors leading to the huge suntrap balcony – fantastic for al fresco dining and drinking in the view over the river.

With a sleek fitted kitchen, 2 chic bedrooms, 1 king-size and one double and a modern bathroom with shower over bath you’ll be settled in no time.

Picnicking, canoeing and fishing are just a few of the ways you'll make the most of nearby access to the lake.

Just 100 yards over the bridge is your fabulous local at the Swan Hotel and Spa.


In the hamlet of Newby Bridge, close to the A590 you'll enjoy easy access to the many attractions of the Southern and Western Lake District and very easily accessible from the M6 - bypassing the busier tourist routes.

Get out and about to the Lakes Aquarium, and the Lakeside Haverthwaite Steam Railway.

The lovely Lakeside Hotel & Spa is next to them, offering fabulous food and drink options.

Also close by is the Motor Museum and Cafe Ambio.

Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Lakeside Pier.

These elegant Windermere steamers ferry passengers to Bowness and Ambleside - a relaxed way to explore and admire the scenery without having to use your car.

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.
