About Granary Cottage

Granary Cottage sleeps up to six guests in two bedrooms (plus sofa bed) and is an excellent choice for families, walkers and couples (one or two) visiting Cumbria with a desire to explore the Lake District National Park and Cumbrian coastline.

Semi-detached, this well presented country cottage is perfectly sandwiched between Cartmel and Newby Bridge and nestles amongst glorious countryside close to the southern tip of Lake Windermere. With a large lawned garden for relaxing during the summer months, a dining sun room for enjoying the fabulous views of the garden and local scenery when the weather is inclement, and a log burner for winter warmth (there is also central heating), Granary Cottage is a popular choice at any time of the year.

Formerly part of Grove Farm, Granary Cottage is located on the outskirts of the pretty small village of Ayside. With just a scattering of cottages, Ayside's industrial heritage once used to include the making of shoes and clogs. Today, the residents pride in the beauty of the surroundings shines through making it a lovely place to spend a holiday. The nearest pubs are in nearby Cartmel and The Swan Hotel in Newby Bridge which has outdoor seating alongside the river.

Cartmel is just two miles from Granary Cottage and famed for its sticky toffee pudding and racecourse with popular meets being held beween May and the end of August. In the other direction is the little hamlet of Newby Bridge with its magnificent five arch bridge straddling the River Leven and Fell Foot Country Park (National Trust). Haverthwaite is just a little further on from Newby Bridge and home to the scenic Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway - a wonderful leisurely way of soaking up the glorious scenery.

Also within easy reach for a day trip out is the home of Beatrix Potter, Hill Top; the picturesque village of Sawrey sitting on the shores of Esthwaite Water; Morecambe Bay and the peaceful seaside resort of Grange-over-Sands; and Lakeside with its popular aquarium, steamer lake cruises (travel by paddle power to Ambleside or Bowness), and train station (connecting with Newby Bridge and Haverthwaite) - just a few of the areas many attractions.

Alternatively, just relax in the garden amongst the beauty of the countryside, lace up your walking boots and explore the fells, or hop on your bike for a day of adventures.
