About the property

Newby Bridge 1 mile.

Resting in the small village of Lakeside, just north of Newby Bridge, is this detached cottage, 10 Landing Close.

Set over a single-storey and sleeping up to ten guests, this charming bungalow is a great setting for your next group trip to the Lake District National Park, within easy reach of Windermere and Grizdale Forest.

You are greeted to the property with a large private driveway and surrounding grounds with plenty of lawn for children to run around in, ample seating areas on the patio to enjoy a sport of al fresco dining, an external utility to keep everyone feeling fresh and an outdoor hot tub for a relaxing evening under the stars.

Stepping into the cottage, there is a spacious open-plan living area with chairs and sofas surrounding the television for a relaxing film night with some popcorn, a dining table seating the whole group so they can enjoy a home-cooked meal, rustled up in the well-equipped and contemporary kitchen area which is certain to entice any budding chefs, especially with the handy dishwasher making the washing up a breeze.

Moving through the property, there is a snug room with a television and games for the children to escape from reality, a bunk room, a double bedroom with storage space to unpack any personal belongings, and a shower room which has Jack and Jill access to a marvellous king-size bedroom with it's own television.

There is also a bathroom offering the choice to relax in the corner bath or hop into the shower cubicle for a quick freshen up, as well as the family room which has a super-king bed, a bunk bed for young children, a television for when the evening draws to a close and a warming woodburning stove, bringing a traditional element to the room.

Lakeside is a lovely little village resting right on Lake Windermere, with the popular Lakes Aquarium, a pier offering boat rides and cruises around the Lake, and a train station which is famous for the Furness Railway, one of Britain's oldest steam railways, running to and from Haverthwaite.

Just a short walk or drive over the River Leven is the village of Newby Bridge, where there is a petrol station offering any essentials you may need during your trip, and a hotel serving food and drink, for when you fancy an evening out of the kitchen.

Also a short drive away is the Lakeland Motor Museum, and in the opposite direction the Grizdale Forest offers an action packed Go Ape experience with a treetop challenge, zip lines, Segway scooters and high ropes courses.

On the other side of the gorgeous lake, you can explore the beautiful towns of Bowness-on-Windermere and Windermere, which both offer a number of shops, bars and restaurants, and with plenty to do and see from watersports, boat hire and golf, to museums such as The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and the Jetty Museum with stories of boats and steam, they make for a great day out.

A little further afield is Ambleside, an amazing town and a popular starting point for many of the mountain and woodland routes around the Lake District.

Also within driving distance is the South Lakes Safari Zoo and Lakeland Wildlife Oasis, which both make a great trip for children.

For a brilliant trip to the Lake District, choose 10 Landing Close as your group's home-away-from-home.

About the location

LAKESIDE

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

Set on the southern shores of Lake Windermere, the small, sleepy hamlet of Lakeside offers a peaceful getaway location, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the Lake District’s popular attractions, but still within easy reach of them. Whether you decide to discover the area in the car, by foot, bike, boat or steam, there’s plenty to see nearby to keep the whole family content. The ferry dock offers the chance to travel by boat to Waterhead or Bowness, or take a shorter trip to the National Trust’s Fell Foot Park, across the water, which offers pretty grounds set alongside the very tip of the lake, providing plenty of places for picnics, paddling, games and gentle strolls on sunny afternoons. Situated alongside the Lakeside Station is the long-standing Lakeside and Haverwaithe Railway, home to Britain’s oldest standard gauge steam engine, on which you can travel back in time along this well-loved Heritage line, and where little ones will delight in meeting Thomas and his friends. Visit the Lakes Aquarium to uncover the often-secretive world of life below water, where you’ll chance upon hundreds of captivating creatures that feature in the surrounding rivers, lakes and sea. There are wonderful, well-signed walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area, including the 5-mile route to Finsthwaite’s High Dam, which trails from Lakeside through pleasant woodlands and meadows. Lakeside offers an exclusive holiday location with all of the Lake District’s delights at your fingertips.
