  • “Thanks for everything. This was the ...”
    Thanks for everything. This was the most perfect getaway we could have had and we’ll definitely be back to this cottage, it had everything (and more) than one could want for a romantic break. It was cozy but not too small, out of the way but close to everything we wanted to visit (Windermere, Boness and Coniston) It was even perfect for the dog too! Thoroughly recommended to anyone wanting to spend a few days (or longer) in The Lakes.

About the location

HAVERTHWAITE

Newby Bridge 3 miles; Lakeside 4 miles; Grange-Over-Sands 7 miles.

Haverthwaite is a small village and civil parish in the Furness region of Cumbria. It is within the Lake District National Park and is located six miles east of Ulverston, near the southern end of Windermere. The village gets part of its name from the Old Norse word thwaite which usually refers to a clearing or settlement in the forest. Close to the village is Newby Bridge which is at the southern tip of Lake Windermere which 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.
