Beautiful cosy cottage in the South Lake District with comfort and luxury throughout, perfect for a relaxing getaway in this stunning location.

The lovely village of Newby Bridge has the famous former Furness Railway, which runs between Lakeside and Haverthwaite. Around the corner from the cottage, enjoy magnificent views across Lake Windermere and the surrounding fells where you can hire a boat to enjoy this wonderful area or take the steamer up to Bowness. Bowness-on-Windermere is just 8 miles away and provides a lovely day out with an abundance of bars, shops, and eateries, or head up to the picturesque village of Hawkshead which has charm and character throughout, along with many local shops and pubs and is located 9 miles from the property.

Walking into this former railway cottage, you will find yourself in the lounge area, which has two comfortable two-seater sofas positioned around the Smart TV, ideal for a relaxing family movie night after a busy day exploring the area. The kitchen/diner is tastefully styled with an electric oven and hob, and a pine dining table for everyone to enjoy a tasty meal. There is a utility area with a microwave, washing machine, and fridge/freezer. Up to the first floor is the main bedroom with a double bed and plenty of space, offering amazing views over the steam railway. Along the landing is the family bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC, and completing this property is the bedroom next door with 3' bunk beds.

This is such a lovely cottage we are travelling without children but anyone bringing them along they will be thrilled with the steam train passing the end of the garden for sure . The cottage is very well equipped you need not bring anything with you and it's location is perfect too. Lots of walks from the door and great places to eat close by too.
