This fabulous Victorian Lakeland residence stands on the banks of the River Leven, at the southern outlet of Lake Windermere. Within half an acre of private gardens leading down to the water's edge (perfect for fishing and canoeing), Newby Bridge House is a magical place to escape from everyday life. Step inside, and you'll find period charms blend perfectly with a contemporary boutique style. Luxurious furnishings, stylish reception rooms (including 2nd TV lounge / games room and elegant dining room) and bedrooms straight out of a Country Life magazine. Although within private gardens, the property stands alongside the A590, so getting around is a breeze. You'll also find 2 great pub restaurants just 100 yards away. Accommodation in detail Private parking for 4 cars. Enclosed porch for walking clobber, entrance hall with original Victorian tiles. Homely living room with large leather sofas, woodburning stove and bay window. A 2nd lounge / TV room / games room overlooks open fields. Well-equipped kitchen and separate yet open-plan dining room with access to the garden. Upstairs to the boutique-style bedrooms; 2 double bedrooms, 2 twin bedrooms, house bathroom and shower room. = Location The southern end of Lake Windermere is renowned for its peaceful atmosphere, being much quieter than the busier Lake District holiday destinations further up the lake. However, you're very close to the hamlet of Lakeside and Lakeside Pier, where the famous Lake Windermere steamers depart regularly to Bowness and Ambleside - a wonderful way to explore these areas without driving. There are some lovely walks in the area, such as Wainwright's Finsthwaite Heights route from Newby Bridge. The route approaches High Dam - a picturesque tarn that you might just have to yourselves on quieter days. You'll also find several Lake District family attractions within easy reach. Also at Lakeside is the Lakes Aquarium - a fresh water aquarium displaying local wildlife. The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway offers an opportunity to take a short trip on a restored traditional steam train. Lake District historic sites such as Holker Hall and Gardens, Cartmel Priory, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are all within easy reach by car, with no need to navigate through busy tourist areas. To your north west, via picturesque country lanes, you'll approach Esthwaite Water and the landscapes that famously inspired the children's author Beatrix Potter. Her former home can be visited at Hill Top, in the small village of Near Sawrey (also home to the fantastic Tower Bank Arms). Only a mile or so further, and you'll reach Hawkshead village - a wonderful place to while away a day, exploring quaint cobbled streets and a blissfully car-free village centre.  …see more

Rural bliss for a romantic break in the Lakes and a dream for your Lake District honeymoon. This charming Lyth Valley cottage offers outstanding views as far as the eye can see; standing only a stroll away from the village of Crosthwaite and the award-winning Punchbowl Inn. Although within the grounds of a larger residence, Highbeck Cottage offers complete privacy and shares 3 acres of scenic grounds. Step inside and you'll find traditional character with a distinctly contemporary finish, all on one level and perfect for a couple. Wake up to coffee with a view on the patio, head out for a walk in any direction, cosy up with a film on the widescreen TV, then sleep well in total peace and quiet. All this and only a short drive to lively Bowness and the shores of Lake Windermere. Accommodation in detail A sweeping driveway leads to Highbeck and Highbeck Cottage, with parking for one car outside. Enter via porch for walking clobber, hallway with utility room and 2nd WC. Kitchen / diner well-equipped for two, overlooking the garden. The cosy lounge is full of character with exposed beams, electric 'woodburning' stove for ease and patio doors to the garden and patio area. A truly romantic king-size bedroom overlooks the Lyth Valley from its picture window, and is served by a luxurious en-suite shower room. Location This romantic rural Lake District cottage lies only a stroll from the small village of Crosthwaite, in the north of the Lyth Valley and only a short drive from Bowness and Lake Windermere. The Lyth Valley is lush and laid back, riddled with picturesque walking and cycling routes and renowned as a peaceful landscape compared to busier Lake District self-catering destinations such as Bowness and Ambleside. The valley is set apart from Lake Windermere by a row of lower level fells, with plenty of opportunities to climb up high and soak up stunning lake views. You'll never be too far from attractions, evening entertainment and sophisticated shopping in Bowness village, with Windermere Golf Club also nearby. Also from Bowness, Windermere Lake Cruises depart to Ambleside and Lakeside. The Lyth Valley is also renowned for its scattering of high-class country pub restaurants, one of which stands only a stroll away from Highbeck Cottage. The Punchbowl Inn is one of the most widely-acclaimed Lake District gastropubs, nestling alongside a pretty old church.  …see more

What a superb, spacious and gracious Grasmere holiday home for soaking up the scenery!

Rising behind the property is the impressive 'Fairfield Horseshoe' - keen walkers will be spoilt for choice. But a holiday property in Grasmere isn't just a dream for walkers. This historic Lake District village is famed for its connections with the poet William Wordsworth, who lived in the village at Dove Cottage - now owned by the National Trust and open to the public as part of the Wordsworth Museum. Artists will enjoy browsing several watercolour galleries in Grasmere, particularly the Heaton Cooper Studio which displays the Cooper family's famous work as well as that of inspired local artists. The village centre has all the facilities you'll need during your self-catering holiday in the heart of the Lakes. From local shops and supermarket to quaint tea rooms and acclaimed restaurants - the Good Food Guide- listed Jumble Room is a treat for a special occasion. For touring by car or exploring the Lakes, the A591 leads you effortlessly south past Rydal Water to Ambleside on the northern shore of Lake Windermere, or north to Keswick and Derwent Water. Also easily found to your south are the breathtaking Langdale Valley and the Lake District's third largest lake, Coniston.  …see more

The Lake District National Park has long been celebrated for its mirror lakes, craggy peaks, holiday cottages and country houses. There are also an abundance of pretty villages and towns. The Lake District is heaven for those who love the outdoors, with sailing, rock climbing and hiking and much more on offer. Cumbria has sandy coastlines and interesting towns to visit, including old-fashioned Penrith.
