Newby Bridge nestles on the southern edge of Lake Windermere near a choice of family attractions around the lakeside which include the Lakes Aquarium and the vintage Lakeside Haverthwaite Railway which has been entertaining visitors since 1872.  The town is also the perfect gateway to attractions and pretty villages lining the western shoreline of Lake Windermere which include heritage gems like Stott Park Bobbin Mill.  Beatrix Potter Country around Hawkshead, Grizedale and Coniston Water are all also just a short drive from Newby Bridge.

Named after the beautiful stone arched bridge across the River Leven, Newby Bridge offers an idyllic Lakeland village holiday base with attractions close by at Haverthwaite Station including a woodland play area, water tower, station restaurant and more. Pick up boat trips on Lake Windermere from Lakeside Pier, the main southern boarding point on the lake which takes you up to popular Lake District tourist spots including Ambleside and Bowness where you'll find many more family attractions, shops and restaurants.

Based in a Newby Bridge B&B or holiday cottage you're also ideally situated for exploring the Lakeland Peninsula and Morecambe Bay resorts like nearby Grange over Sands.
