Inviting Big Cottage, near Newby Bridge (483LL)

This fabulous barn conversion is found in the peaceful village of Finsthwaite, close to the southern shores of Lake Windermere.
Laid out over 3 levels, The Property is a wonderfully homely place for families or larger groups to escape from the everyday rush. Sociable dining will be a breeze in the chic country kitchen, designed to make holiday living that little bit easier.

Wonderful countryside views will woo you in the wrap-around conservatory, on the patio and in the gardens, where your only audience will be the grazing livestock. Stroll up the road to High Dam, and discover a lesser-known beauty spot reserved for those who know. On a rainy day, try your hand at table tennis or darts in the garage!

Location

Lakeside is renowned as a peaceful Lake District holiday destination, nestled around the southern tip of Lake Windermere and away from the hustle bustle of the busier areas. But despite this, you'll find a wealth of things to see and do within easy reach - whatever your holiday tastes. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Lakeside Pier, and ferry passengers the full length of Lake Windermere to Bowness and Ambleside - a wonderfully stress-free way to explore.

You'll find plenty of walking routes in the area; including Alfred Wainwright's Finsthwaite Heights route from Newby Bridge (adjacent to Lakeside). Also at Lakeside are two popular Lake District family attractions - the Lakes Aquarium and the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway. 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, 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. 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.

LocationCumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
