  • "We had a wonderful week at Lakeside View."

    There's everything here for a comfortable stay: crisp, high-quality bedding, a well appointed kitchen, a lovely art-deco vibe to the decorations. There was a thoughtful welcome package waiting on arrival, and plenty of well-organised information to help us plan our stay. We came during particularly rainy weather, and on one of the wettest days, the large box of board games came in very handy as we chose to stay in. Best of all, however, is the location: there is so much to do within walking distance. Beautiful grounds, two pubs, the steam railway, the ferry across the lake, the aquarium, a little private woodland, and lots of walking trails (child-friendly) into the country side. There is also direct access to the lake's water sports, for the summer months. The owners are warm and responsive with questions, and made us feel very welcome. We loved our time there and look forward to returning.

    Many thanks for taking the time and effort to write such a wonderful review and for choosing your holiday at Lakeside View, Lakeside. Holidays and memories are so precious and, as owner of Lakeside View, I feel that I have a responsibility to provide the best holiday experience for our holiday guests as is possible, (weather excluded!) At Lakeside View you can enter another world - just for a few days - of relaxation, peace and tranquility where you can 'charge up the batteries' in these beautiful Lake District surroundings! Hopefully your batteries are now fully charged!! Janet Harrison (Owner) Property Owner

  • "A really nice and peaceful place to stay."

    Very comfortable beds and the kitchen was very well equipped. The welcome pack was very thoughtful as we're the information box of the local area. The only down side was the TV reception, not sure if that was our doing. Would love to stay again as it is ideally positioned for our needs.

    Thank you very much for your kind comments which I appreciate. I try very hard to make Lakeside View as good as it is possible to be in the hope that guests have a lovely time whilst on holiday.Sorry I can’t do anything about the Lakes weather at times but I’ll certainly do what I can asap for a better tv reception!

Lakeside View is a wonderful, mews holiday home, nestling within 12 acres of private beautiful grounds, tranquil greenery, woodland and lawns which are shared by residents at Landing How; there’s also access to over ½ mile of frontage to Lake Windermere, crossing the famous Lakeside to Haverthwaite Railway line where you may see and even hear the steam train toot!

Outside is what really makes Landing How a special choice for your holiday, front garden and patio and rear patio areas with garden furniture offer a space to dine alfresco or simply enjoy your morning coffee in the fresh air.

It is a splendid area to go walking be it a short walk through our private gate and over the meadow to ‘The Swan Hotel’ at Newby Bridge, or pass through the same gate just a short walk to The Lakeside Hotel, the Victorian steam railway station at Lakeside where you can board a steam train to Haverthwaite or board a Windermere Cruiser to Bowness and beyond.

The Aquarium of the Lakes is here too as is a small passenger ferry to take you across the lake to Fell Foot Park which belongs to The National Trust.

Longer walks could take you to the village of Finsthwaite and to the beautiful lakes at High Dam.

The National Trust sites of Hill Top, home to Beatrix Potter, and Wray Castle also make family-friendly days out as does Holker Hall near Cartmel and Sizergh Castle.

Perfect for a family, friends, or even a couple or two, this home boasts a prime location with a wealth of scenery on the doorstep, whilst hosting all the home comforts needed for a relaxed self-catering break.

Enter the estate via electric gates and make your way to the two designated parking spaces.

Step inside the kitchen/breakfast room where you can spend time cooking for loved ones.

There is a dishwasher, double oven, microwave and washing-machine for your convenience and just off this room, you can find a cloakroom too.

From here, make your way to the living/dining room, home to a plush L-shaped sofa, a feature electric fire and a TV for your cosy nights in.

Here you can dine as a family with a bottle of wine and all the comforts of home.

Upstairs, the master bedroom invites you to rest in a superking bed, with the added luxury of an en-suite shower room and a TV.

Next is the remaining two bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, serviced by a family bathroom, so there is plenty of room for the group to rest and freshen up.

When you’re not spending your days with watersports on the lake and picnics with the family, venture into the nearby towns and villages for restaurants and attractions.

On your doorstep you’ll find both the Lakeside Hotel and The Swan Hotel which you can visit for a meal or a tipple or venture further afield to Hawkshead, Bowness-on- Windermere and beyond.

Enjoy a tranquil break in the Lake District National Park with a stay at Lakeside View.
