A real treat of a retreat by the River Leven!
Full of character and cosiness, Riverbank Hideaway is a romantic ground-floor portion of a traditional Lakeland Barn sleeping four people on the beautiful banks of the river flowing south from Lake Windermere. Enjoy the stunning countryside, river and lake access, explore the surrounding South Lakes, and look forward to special home comfort to return to each evening!

The cosy accommodation has all you need, wrapped in rustic character and set in a charmingly relaxing location. Contemporary style and country charm mingle here, and provide a great environment to get together and let those everyday cares fade away. And your shared riverside garden is the ideal spot for picnicking, fishing and canoeing!
One of the great advantages of Riverbank Hideaway is its proximity to one of the finest inns in the Lakes, the well-loved Swan Hotel at Newby Bridge. Although you are pleasingly secluded in the shared garden grounds of Riverside House, you are only the shortest of strolls from the log fires, ambient atmosphere and excellent gastro-pub food of the Swan. There is a superb beer garden here for you to sit and sip a cold ale and discuss your days adventures as the river slides past, and the hotel also offers luxurious spa facilities and a swimming pool.
The walking opportunities nearby are vast, and the lower rolling hills of the south give way to the high central Lakeland peaks the further north you journey. Gummer's How, one of the prettiest fells in the area is just a stone's throw away, and the views from here are truly awe-inspiring. Lake Windermere has plenty of paths by the lakeshore, and we recommend a stroll at Fellfoot Park, a beautifully Victorian lakeside leisure spot with boat hire available. Just a little drive away east of Windermere is the green and fertile Lyth Valley, famed for its lush beauty and yearly damson crop.
Lakeside and Newby Bridge have so many attractions, including an excellent aquarium, a historic railway, and a steamer stop for Lake Windermere. With the natural beauty of the area to explore too, you are ensured a full and fulfilling holiday.
