The property

Nestled on the outskirts of Lake Windermere, in the delightful hamlet of Newby Bridge, Green Acre is a well-presented detached cottage.

Sleeping seven, this thoughtfully laid out abode sits within two acres of land and provides stunning views of the surrounding countryside, perfect for friends and family alike, looking for a rural retreat in the Lake District.

Soak up the views before heading inside, where you will be welcomed by charming yet contemporary interiors throughout.

Kick off your walking boots and store them in the conveniently sized hallway, before entering the stylish kitchen, amply equipped to assist you in all your self-catering requirements.

Moving through the property, you’ll be charmed by the bright and airy conservatory, where you can snuggle up on the sofa in front of the large TV after a day exploring the local area or enjoy a morning coffee whilst admiring the breath-taking views.

Enter the warm and inviting living room, where a wood burning stove takes centre stage, perfect for those winter evenings cosied up in front of the fire with your loved ones.

Grab a captivating book and unwind, whilst enjoying the views from the charming window seat or gather around the dinner table to enjoy a board game night with friends and family.

Completing the ground floor is a shower room and three well-presented bedrooms; one king-size bedroom boasting a feature fireplace and mountain views, a double bedroom and single bedroom with ample storage space.

Climb the staircase to the first floor, where you will be welcomed by an attractive super-king-sized bedroom with zip/link features, boasting stunning views of the countryside as well as a stylish bathroom, where you can enjoy a long soak in the bath after a day exploring the Lakes.

Head back downstairs and step outside where you can enjoy two acres of space, including a patio area with table and chairs, ideal for a spot of alfresco dining or enjoying an evening glass of wine, captivated by the surrounding views across the valley.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic home away from home, take a stroll into Newby Bridge, perched on the edge of Lake Windermere, where you can pick up some local delicacies from the nearby shop, enjoy a walk in Fell Foot Park or a family-fun day out to Newby Bridge Aquarium.

Green Acre is ideally situated in the heart of The Lake District, just a short drive away from the popular towns and villages of Cartmel, Bowness on Windermere, Windermere, Ambleside, Kendal, Ulverston and Grange over Sands, where ample attractions await.

Embrace the great outdoors and learn to sail on Lake Windermere, enjoy a relaxing meander on a wooden rowing boat or take a boat trip from Bowness on Windermere to the popular tourist destination of Ambleside.

Back on dry land, there are plenty of walking opportunities for keen hikers; enjoy a walk along the shores of Lake Windermere to Wray Castle or lace up those walking boots and take on one of the surrounding peaks, such as the impressive Old Man of Coniston or even England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike.

Other local attractions worth a visit include the family-friendly World of Beatrix Potter, the beautiful lake of Coniston Water and Hawkshead Brewery, a modern brewery providing tours and tastings sessions.

After a day of adventure in the Lake District, Green Acre will be awaiting your return, providing the perfect retreat for you and your loved ones.

  • “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

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.
