If you want to visit the Lake District but prefer to avoid the bustle of the busier tourist hubs, a trip to Newby Bridge could be the short break location for you! This charming little hamlet lies at the southern end of Lake Windermere, beside the River Leven. We have a selection of holiday cottages in Newby Bridge to choose from, all of which provide the ideal base from which to explore this incredible national park.
Walking and cycling opportunities abound for active types. For those wishing to take a more sedate approach, there’s still plenty to keep you busy! From the Newby Bridge train station, take a trip on the preserved Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway – don’t forget your camera.
Hop on a ferry at the nearby Lakeside Pier to take you to the National Trust’s garden at Fell Foot and take in the beauty of Lake Windermere.
After all that, head back to your cosy Newby Bridge holiday cottage, put your feet up and enjoy the view with a welcome glass of something cold!
