    “Beautiful little hideaway”

    Lovely cottage. Perfect for access to Ulverston, Windermere, Bowness etc. Also ideal for getting away from the outside world!

    Lovely cottage. Perfect for access to Ulverston, Windermere, Bowness etc. Also ideal for getting away from the outside world! The bath is lovely, although the shower isn’t great. The wood burning stove is wonderful. If you’re visiting in the winter take layers - the windows aren’t completely airtight. Overall we had a perfect 4 nights away with no mobile reception. <3

About the location


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.
