  • "This was a very nice house with plenty of space for people to enjoy."

    The location is convenient for the lake and the railway, there are some lovely walks very close by with excellent views across Lake Windermere. The property has been very nicely furnished and provides a good kitchen and lovely bathrooms. The patio area provides lake glimpses . Overall a lovely property to stay at while exploring the Lakes.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Beech Lea."

    The house was very well appointed - everything we needed and more. Lovely touches such as the toiletries in every bathroom and all the well labelled cupboards and drawers. Well positioned for trips on Lake Windermere. Loved the walk to and tour of Stott's Park Bobbin Mill and the lovely walk to the Swan Inn and in the surrounding woodland. A perfect spot for a family get together and a relaxing break. Particularly loved the sun room with it's bi-fold doors. Particularly useful when it's a bit breezy.

  • "We have stayed in many holiday lets over the years and this was one of the best."

    The owner has provided detailed easy to follow guides for all the facilities and equipment in the house. The cottage is fitted out to a very high standard, beds are really comfortable, bathrooms were beautiful and kitchen was well equipped. Log burner was great in the evening. easy to use. Location was great, stones throw from ferry and many local walks. As recommended by owners the Swan Hotel via the walk along the railway line was great, good food, friendly staff and we felt great value for money. The garage 5 mins drive from the house is well stocked with most of the essential. We enjoyed the M&S shortbread provided as a welcome gift. Literally we could not fault this beautiful property, the owners should be so proud of their rental property., a home from home indeed. Thank-you for letting us have a relaxing stress free stay in your lovely property.

  • "Absolutely wonderful property to stay in."

    We have been coming up to The Lakes for the last fifteen years, sometimes up to three times a year. We have stayed in many many cottages and this is just about one of the best. Every thought has gone into how you might live in and use the cottage, there are plenty of pans in the kitchen and not the usual cheap frying pan that everything sticks to. Beautiful amenities in the bathrooms. Free logs and kindling, these along with the beautiful setting, interior design that was impeccable culminated in the most wonderful stay. Also included were plentiful supply of dishwasher tablets, washing powder, washing up liquid, herbs and spices and many other condiments in the kitchen that were free to use. Beautiful box of M&S shortbread biscuits and a bottle of decent Rosé wine.. Literally I could not find one fault regarding this beautiful property. The owners should be so proud of their home/rental property, a home from home indeed!

    Hi Penny Thanks so much for your wonderful feedback for Beech Lea. I am so pleased you appreciated all the extra effort we have gone to in order to enable our guests to relax on holiday in our lovely property, making it a home from home.

About the location


Newby Bridge 1.2 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 8.7 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.
