Find Holidays in Newby Bridge
Perfect for… discovering fascinating heritage, exploring Lake Windermere and enjoying scenic walks
Newby Bridge can be found towards the southern end of Lake Windermere in the Lake District National Park. Located on the banks of the River Leven, the village is named after the striking five-arched stone bridge that was built there in the 17th century. It is a great base from which to explore the southern part of the Lake District, particularly around the Furness Peninsula.
Discover the fascinating remains of Furness Abbey, 14th century Dalton Castle and the fascinating Piel Island, a small island that has its own castle and pub. Wander towards the majestic Lake Windermere and board the ferry across to Fell Foot, the beautiful National Trust-owned garden. Pay a visit to Hill Top Farm, the former home of Beatrix Potter and the inspiration behind many of her most famous novels.
Walkers can enjoy plenty of scenic walking trails, as will any four-legged friends you may want to bring along.
