Why choose a luxury break near Newby Bridge and Lake Windermere?

Windermere is the perfect year-round destination. With the shores of the lake at Newby Bridge so close to The Courtyard Cottages, Bigland Hall, you are never short of leisure activities to try or places to enjoy our landscape.

The Gummers How viewpoint at Newby Bridge offers superb views of the Lake Windermere – north towards Ambleside, south to Morecambe Bay, and across to the Lake District fells in the west. It’s a quick drive from our accommodation and delivers breathtaking scenery without much walking effort.

Last year, the Lakes became a World Heritage Site. We can’t think of a better reason to come and explore our world-class area. And, if you prefer a touch of luxury, our cottages are ideal – in fact, you can take in the scenery without even leaving your bed thanks to our enviable location and the views through our characterful windows.

The Lake District is one of the UK’s most stunning and ancient landscapes and I am thrilled it has been granted World Heritage Site status. It is a unique part of the world, that combines a vibrant farming community with thousands of archaeological sites and structures that give us an amazing glimpse into our past.

Reviews of our Newby Bridge cottages


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.

Absolutely fantastic! The host Lyndsey was wonderful with us and extremely helpful – would 100% book again!
