  • "As a family with two young children I am more that disappointed that you booked ..."

    As a family with two young children I am more that disappointed that you booked 8 girls upstairs that stayed up partying until 4am totally ruined the trip and left early

    We are so sorry you had this horrible experience. In actual fact the property was booked to 6 adults. Additional guests, and the anti-social behaviour were in contravention of the terms of the booking and completely without our knowledge. It would have been very helpful if you had contacted us or Sykes at the time rather than after your departure as we would have addressed these issues immediately. Property Owner

Beyond is the kitchen/diner, a space enjoying stylish, shaker-style fittings, along with ample preparation space and Nespresso coffee machine. Dine overlooking the gardens toward the lake and fell beyond.

You may well spot deer in the surrounding fields or find a curious pheasant or two coming to inspect you through the French doors. When night falls, choose between two well-appointed bedrooms, with one offering a double, and the other twin beds.

In the contemporary bathroom with underfloor heating, you will find a bath with shower over.

About the location

NEWBY BRIDGE

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.
