Newby Bridge 4 miles. This wonderful, stone-built detached cottage is located on the outskirts of the pretty village of Bouth, which has a traditional inn and is just four miles from Newby Bridge. This contemporary holiday home boasts superb furnishings and is set in an ideal location for discovering the Lake District, as well as the charming villages of Cartmel and Grange-over-Sands. The cottage boasts a stylish finish throughout and the cosy open plan living area has a woodburning stove. There is a superb bathroom and a comfortable bedroom with a large window, views across the river to Gummer's How and an external door leading out to a secluded patio, with a hot tub and steps to an elevated decked area. Settle outside on the elevated patio and admire the views, or simply sit back and enjoy the quiet location before taking a gentle walk into the village. An abundance of walks and cycle routes are available right from the doorstep, whilst the Lake District fells, Grizedale Forest, Lake Windermere and Coniston Water are nearby. Why not travel over to Cartmel and visit the shop where the original sticky toffee pudding is sold? This charming village is also well known for its superb restaurants and pubs and of course, the ancient Priory. A drive up the pretty Rusland Valley will take you to the quaint village of Hawkshead and to Hill Top, where Beatrix Potter lived and was inspired to write many of her charming tales. From here you can also catch the car ferry and cruise across Lake Windermere to discover the vibrant lakeside towns of Bowness-on-Windemere and Ambleside. A stay in this delightful corner of Cumbria will ensure a perfect romantic retreat at any time of the year.
The small village of Newby Bridge takes its name from the five arched stone bridge built in 1651 over the River Leven. Lake Windermere is within reach, along with the Aquarium of the Lakes, the picturesque village of Hawkshead and Hill Top, the home of Beatrix Potter.

Logs were provided for the fire aswel as coal if needed but could do with something better than cigarette lighters to light it, like a safety gas lighter. Hot tub was great but could do with some kind of overhead cover so it's useable when raining. On the down side the economy 7 water heating was very noisy during the early hours of the morning and the hot water pressure was very low and we only managed a small trickle of water from the hot tap in the bathroom. I would advise to take torches as we had a power cut for one and have hours on one night and the neighbouring cottage said it was very common and always happens. Short walk to the White Heart pub which is worth a visit and lots of other places to visit nearby.
enjoyed walks directly from the cottage and is a good base to explore windermere, Ambleside and our favourite, grasmere. we would also recommend roanhead if you like a good dog friendly beach. the local pub is friendly and we can recommend the Sunday dinner which is served both lunch and evening. the hot tub was a welcomed addition after long walks the only slight niggle was being at the entrance to the caravan park. we always search for isolated cottages which this was listed as such. it is isolated but traffic in and out of the caravan park detracted from that a bit. didn't spoil anything though. we would definitely use again
The existing sofa was a bit grubby and smelly. However the rest of the property was generally in good order. We could not open the top drawer on the freezer because it was iced up. The passing traffic entering and exiting the caravan park can be a bit loud. However the stand out feature is the hot tub, which more than balanced out, any negatives.
