Overview

Dating back to 1793, the Newby Bridge Hotel was one of the first mansions built on the shores of Lake Windermere. It sits in landscaped gardens overlooking the water at the lake's southernmost tip. The classic 18th-century scene is completed by a replica Greek temple.

The property is about a mile from several local attractions: the Lakes Aquarium, Lakeland Motor Museum and Fell Foot Park, a Victorian country park that was formerly the grounds of a country house but is now armed by the National Trust. Bowness-on-Windermere -- a hub for outdoor activities, and home to the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction -- is 20 minutes' drive away. Cartmel, a picturesque village with a racecourse and a priory that dates from the 12th century, is 15 minutes' drive from the hotel.

The Garden View Restaurant features a daily changing menu using local produce -- much of it from the hotel's own kitchen garden -- while The Huntsman's Inn has log fires for chilly evenings. There's also an indoor pool, a steam room, a small gym and a spa pool, as well as free Wi-Fi in public areas. Dogs are welcome (for a small extra charge).

There are 46 bedrooms at the property, including five with 4-poster beds. For hi-tech luxury, couples can stay in the elegant Greek-style temple (the Rotunda). Here, you'll find remote-controlled lighting, a TV that descends from the ceiling, discreet speakers and an iPod docking station. Back in the main building there are disabled-access rooms on the ground floor, one with a roll-in shower.

Although the food was excellent we had to wait one hour before we were given our first course. They apologised saying it was a computer glitch.

the location of the hotel. The staff were helpful at all times. The room was quite large as it was a family room when there were only two of us.

Female changing room for leisure facilities small just a bench and pegs and one shower. Pool and Jacuzzi were good. We had to wait a total of 2 hours to be served our 3 course meal and other people did complain about this as well the food was good when it arrived. The following day we were again told it would be an hour to order a bar meal. We were told they were having chef problems and a new chef was arriving the next day. A nice hotel if a bit in need of refurbishment.
