Small but perfectly formed and very well equipped. Well placed for all the attractions of Lake Windermere and our two boys aged 3 and 6 couldn't believe they had a steam train passing their garden. Tony, the owner, couldn't be more helpful. Highly recommended!
Tony is the perfect host, greeting you on arrival and pointing out all the features of the cottage. The facilities in the cottage are ideal for your stay, everything is provided so you don't want for anything. Tony even provided basic groceries on our arrival, which was wonderful. The location is ideal for exploring the Lake District, in less than 30 minutes you can be at the North end of Windermere and beyond.
The Swan Hotel by the side of the river Leven is less than 5 minutes walk away, and is ideal for a quick snack or a full meal.
The trains passing by the end of the garden every half hour or so during the day, are a bonus not to be missed (don't forget to wave !!).
All in all a beautiful restful place in a perfect location. Thanks again Tony, we'll be back !!

Hired the cottage for a weekend rowing camp on Windermere, very conveniently placed and well equipped. Owner very helpful. We will be hiring again for future visits.
We had the pleasure of spending a week at Swan View Cottage. Small, but perfectly formed, on the quiet side of Lake Windermere, Swan View Cottage provided us with the perfect base. Tony has anticipated every possible need and kindly did a basic grocery shop for us before our arrival from New Zealand on a Sunday afternoon. Even if he hadn't done this, the Cottage is so well set up when guests arrive we wouldn't have starved. We loved the peace and quiet, the convenience of The Swan, the impossibly gorgeous scenery,and walks on the doorstep, and the friendly neighbours. Like everyone else we enjoyed seeing the train chuffing past and did the short trip from Lakeside to Newby Bridge halt. The weather came to the party and we loved every minute of our stay. There is so much to do in the area, and the only advice we can give to any prospective guests is to double, if not triple the length of your stay. Thanks Tony for an unforgettable week, and also for sending on our forgotten items.
Myself, my husband and his parents stayed at the cottage for 2 nights at the beginning of September. The booking was very easy and the owner was very helpful and provided lots of ideas and information about things to do while we were there.
The cottage was a home from home, it had everything you would need and was very clean and comfortable. The steam train line at the bottom of the garden is fantastic and the neighbours were very friendly and welcoming.
The swan hotel and inn is at most a 2 minute walk, with the Newby bridge hotel about 5 min walk. We visited bowness, Ambleside and ulverston, all of which are within very easy reach of the cottage.
I couldn't find any fault with this cottage, I would definitely advise giving it a go and would gladly recommend it to friends and family.
