    “A fantastic location in the south lakes, so convenient for Grange Over Sands which is a wonderful and rather uniquely beautiful “seaside” town.”

    The owner’s welcome gift was very generous and delicious. We particularly enjoyed the balconies which capture both morning and the blazing afternoon sun. We would definitely recommend to couples after a very comfortable apartment in a very beautiful part of Cumbria.

About the location


Newby Bridge 1 mile; Bowness-on-Windermere 10 miles.

The small village of Backbarrow sits by the banks of the River Leven and the southern tip of Lake Windermere. The famous Haverthwaite Steam Railway runs close by the village between Haverthwaite and Lakeside. Enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or visit the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Set amidst the charm of the Lake District, close to the fringe of Windermere, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to forage further into a magical heartland of silver lakes, lofty towering peaks and lonely gorse clad moors.
