  • "This was one of the best Holiday Cottages we have ever stayed in."

    It had everything needed for a weeks very happy holiday. I'm sure we will return if we can.

  • "Green Acre is a lovely dormer bungalow with good views and good road links to different parts of the lake district."

    The large back garden was brilliant and Sooty (our Shih Tzu dog) loved exploring it. The property had excellent facilities; the washing machine and tumble drier were very useful. The fridge seemed to have some water leaking from somewhere. The beds were comfortable but the pillows were a bit hard.

  • "We had a great stay, albeit too short."

    The location is great and the views spectacular. We did a few nice walks right from the cottage. A big thank you for sorting out a few little issues we had so quickly for us, particularly over the Easter weekend. Would definitely recommend staying here.

  • "Cottage is situated in a beautiful location with outstanding views, and walks from the door."

    It is convenient to get to from the motorway and main roads, and a godd place to stay if you want to access Lake Windermere without the crowds of Bowness and Windermere. House is cosy, the beds are comfortable, the conservatory making a good family day room. Minor niggles - could have done with better lighting and a softer armchair in the dining/ living room (not easy to seat 4 adults comfortably in the evening) and a teapot and cafetiere would have been good. But this didn't really detract from what was a lovely stay.

  • "The electric gates are slightly unreliable."

    Sometimes they didn’t open or close fully so if you have dog/children they need checking after use. The woods and fells behind the house seem to be well populated by tics, we had to remove several from various parts of our bodies (and the dog) during the stay so you need to check after walking there. Wasn’t a problem for us as we are used to this but inexperienced walkers may not be aware. The house is almost directly under the flight path for the RAF low flying exercises which from our point of view was a great bonus, but those of a nervous disposition might find it a worry We were treated to quite a few fighter jets, a Hercules helicopter and a formation of Osprey VTOL planes as the weather was ideal all week. Although the house is quite close to the main road there was very little traffic noise and the view from the top of the garden is very nice.

  • "Green Acre is the perfect pick for break with a small group."

    We had a great weeks holiday with family including 1 grandparent, 4 middle aged adults, one 5 year old plus a small dog. The freedom of 2 eating areas and televisions means you're not living on top of each other and can enjoy the whole cottage together. The patio area and gardens are brilliant with loads of room for adventures and relaxation. Having never stayed in the south lakes (usually stopping at Keswick) we were very impressed with the cottage and surroundings and cant wait to return. Thank you Sami for a lovely holiday!

  • "It was an awesome stay."

    Me and my friends were thrilled at the thought of having the whole place to ourselves. Maybe a hot tub would have completed the experience as it is very conducive to having one. There's only one thing that requires attention - the massive couch in the conservatory gave everyone an itch even after our shower. Overall, it's a place we would like to go back to in the future.

About the location


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.
