Location description from owner

The England region

This area of the lakes, known as the Southern Lakes, is much quieter than the central lakes and has the best of both worlds – quiet, beautiful open countryside but is within easy reach of the Lake District's main highlights.

A short trip will allow you the opportunity to visit Cartmel, with its pretty cottages, priory, village square and home to the Michelin Star restaurant L'Enclume, Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding and Britain's smallest National Hunt racecourse with meetings late May and August bank holidays. The more adventurous can visit Grizedale Forest with its' way marked mountain bike tracks, Go Ape high wire rope course and graded forest walks complete with woodland sculptures.

There is so much more to this area than lakes and mountains why not take a trip down Coastal Route alongside the pebbly/sandy beach, which offers fantastic views across Morecambe Bay to the Lancashire coastline and the Pennine Hills. At the southernmost point is Roa Island where you can wander around the lifeboat station or hop on the ferry (Easter to September) and visit Piel Island wander round the ruins of Piel Castle or pop into the Ship Inn where you may even bump into the 'King of Piel' As an alternative you can explore the Nature Reserve on Walney Island, the sand dunes of Roan Head or visit the hidden Duddon Valley, with its heather clad moors peppered with birch trees.

Within easy reach are the bustling Lake District hotspots of Windermere and Ambleside situated around Lake Windermere and Coniston and Hawkshead on the shores of Coniston Lake to name just a few.

Other Days out include the South Lakes Animal Park , the award winning gardens of Holker and Levens Hall, Muncaster Castle with its owl sanctuary and adventure playground, Furness Abbey and the Beatrix Potter Gallery amongst many others too numerous to mention.

Newby Bridge

It's just a few minutes walk from the cottage to the Lakeland Motor Museum to browse around its diverse and unique road transport collection of some 30,000 exhibits or simply to enjoy a bite to eat at the riverside Café Ambio. If road transport isn't your cup of tea the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway is a few minutes stroll away where you can sample the delights of their home made food in the station café or take a trip on the steam train to Lakeside where you can visit the Lakes Aquarium, take afternoon tea at the beautiful Lakeside Hotel or hop onto a Windermere Steamer and enjoy a cruise on England's largest lake Windermere.

If you simply want to enjoy a country walk there are plenty of circular paths and walks from the front door via country lanes, over fells and through wooded areas. The views from the top of Bigland Fell above the cottage are stunning taking in the Coniston mountain range, the Eastern Fells and the sweeping sands of Morecambe Bay.

Eating Out
There is a good choice locally just across the main road is The Whitewater Hotel with bar and bistro with its dramatic riverside setting, at Newby Bridge there is the Newby Bridge Hotel and the Swan Hotel with gardens and grounds running down to the river, where you can sample a local brew in the bar or enjoy a meal prepared by the chef from local produce. Other eateries close by are The White Hart at Bouth, the Farmers Arms at Lowick, E'nclume, The Pig & Whistle and Kings Arms in Cartmel amongst the most notable. The Farmers Arms and Mill in Ulverston (10 minutes by car) are well worth a visit as well as the whole host of restaurants offering international cuisine in this small Market Town from Chinese to Cantonese, Thai to Indian and even a Mexican. If you crave something really British there is Crakeside Fish and Chip Shop in Greenodd (3 minutes each way)

“Lovely cottage in a lovely location.”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2016

A lovely cottage in a lovely location. Really clean and comfy which is the most important thing to me. It was an ideal location to access the Southern Lakes and really easy to find. Cath was really helpful and the provision of the essentials like Milk, biscuits, tea and coffee were greatly appreciated when we arrived. It wasn't really an issue but the only slight thing would be that there isn't any internet access. As signal can be bad in the Lakes it would be useful to be able to plan days out whilst there.
