The property was outstanding in all aspects. The quality of furnishings, finish, location and the provision of extras which one might have forgotten. Being able to sit on the terrace and look out towards Ulverston with a cool glass of wine was just awe inspiring. The bedrooms where fabulous and always ensured a good night’s sleep, and the quiet location was incredible. The welcome by the hosts and their support throughout our stay was exceptional, thank you very much.
Luxury Lake District Holiday Cottages: Interior & Exterior Layout
Our six luxury Lake District cottages are located on the southerly edge of the National Park. They are tucked away on the outskirts of Backbarrow village, just a couple of miles from Newby Bridge and a short drive to the South Lakeland towns of Ulverston, Windermere and Kendal.
Each of the cottages boasts a carefully positioned hot tub and an outdoor area with patio furniture and a barbecue. The hot tubs make the most of our stunning setting and are exclusively yours to use day and night for the duration of your stay. This luxury touch means you can soak up the breathtaking views across the Leven Estuary and relax in true Lakeland style – with a cup of tea or a glass of fizz in hand.
