Things To Do in Newby Bridge
Rusland View benefits from being far from the madding crowd! It is a few miles out of the village of Newby Bridge, which in itself backs close to Bowness on Windermere. This is steam railway country, so don’t be surprised to see a few working locos in the area!
Windermere itself is the biggest of the lakes in the District, and as such, this cottage provides you with a great central spot to stay for waterside walks. Bring two pets with you to trail the water’s edge, and don’t forget to head to the picture-perfect scenes of Bowness itself, as well as quaint, historic Hawkshead.
Many couples will love the fact that this cottage is close to Grizedale Forest, where you can let your pets bound around for hours down wooded thickets and trails. Don’t forget, if you work up a thirst while exploring, there’s always likely to be a country pub or two that you can take your pups to along the way.
This farmland location brings you close to the heart of National Trust country, with many of England’s best-known and best loved country walks available right on your doorstep. If you fancy taking a bit of a coastal break once in a while, you only have to take a brief drive over towards Morecambe Bay, with Lancashire opening up to you. Ultimately, there’s lots for you to see here, and you can make the most of the best in country and coast.
Rusland View is our idea of dog holiday heaven. It’s well-removed from bright lights and big noise, and if you’ve always dreamed of a romantic, slow-paced farmhouse getaway, then this is likely to tick plenty of the right boxes for you. What’s more, you don’t have to leave the pets at home – as you can bring two well-behaved pups with you to enjoy the surroundings.
Take time to sit back and relax with an evening drink in the garden, and simmer down in your own ensuite when the day draws to a close. Benefit from WiFi included in the price as well as a healthy TV package – meaning just because you’re getting away from it all, doesn’t mean you have to completely disconnect!
Fantastic modern amenities upstairs and down mean that your self catering break for two (plus dogs) becomes that little bit easier. Dishwasher and fridge storage facilities will help you to plan ahead for romantic evenings in.
If you do want to explore the wider area, Windermere is a short drive away, as well as Newby Bridge village, and delightful Hawkshead. We dare say it’s a central base for all kinds of Lakes adventures, even though it’s secluded!
