Whitestone Cottage - Newby Bridge, Windermere, Cumbria, The Lake District, England - Sleeps 6

Whitestone Cottage

Whitestone Cottage sleeps six guests in three comfy bedrooms and dates back to the late 18th Century. Nestling in the peaceful village of Newby Bridge in the Lake District National Park, the cottage is close to Lake Windermere and surrounded by some of the country’s most beautiful scenery.

Formerly mill workers homes, the property is in a row of cottages and offers accommodation split across three levels. Full of original character, it offers the perfect blend of historic features including an inglenook inset fireplace with wood burning stove, lots of beams, mixed with modern luxuries such as a comfy cosy lounge where you can relax on the leather recliners whilst watching the forty nine inch LCD SMART television with DVD surround sound.

The cottage provides a welcoming retreat to return home to of an evening where you can relax after an exciting day visiting the many attractions of the Lakes or hiking. With two sunny garden patios equipped with outdoor furniture and BBQ, there are plenty of places to relax in the warmer months and in the winter, warm in front of the flames of the open fire whilst enjoying a glass of wine and a good film. The well equipped kitchen provides everything needed for creating a hearty supper or romantic meal for two.

The Lake District is popular with walkers and famous for its mountains and fells with the highest and most challenging being Scafell, Scafell Pike, Skiddaw, Helvellyn and Bowfell - ideal for the most enthusiastic of hikers! There are also many more mountains that are easier and just as enjoyable, along with pleasant walks along the lake shore.

The area offers plenty of local attractions to suit all ages and energy levels. Local attractions within walking distance of the cottage are: Lakeland and Haverthwaite Railway; Lakeland Motor Museum and Lakeland Steam Cruises across Lake Windermere. Within just a few minute's drive (or uphill walk) you have Bigland Equestrian Centre where you can enjoy horse riding (ideal for both experienced and novice riders and a fantastic stables). The Centre also offers several exciting outdoor sports including fishing, shooting, archery and quad-biking. A short drive from the cottage is Lakeside where you will find Lakeside Aquarium and just eight miles away you have Bowness-on-Windermere with its buzzy atmosphere in the town and around the lake. Ambleside is equally as popular with much to offer its many visitors.

Other popular attractions include: South Lakes Animal Park and Zoo; Grizedale Forest including Go-Ape, with its miles of forest trails which can be explored by mountain bike or foot; Munster Castle and Holker Hall.

Within walking distance of Whitestone Cottage is The Whitewater Hotel with bar and restaurant and the Swan Hotel and Spa. Close by is The Newby Bridge Hotel where you can enjoy a lovely Sunday lunch carvery and both hotels can be reached by an enjoyable hillside walk to help you work up an appetite! There is also a village pub serving good food and drink and family groups are made very welcome.

Wordsworth's best loved family home, Rydal Mount, sits in the heart of the Lakes between Grasmere and Ambleside and is worth a visit with fantastic views over Lake Windermere and Rydal Water, along with the surrounding fells. Grasmere Lake and Rydal Water are just to the South, and provide some gentle low level walks.

The cottage is a traditional three storey holiday home that is over two hundred years old.
