Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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.

We had a view of a brick wall. Vans delivering outside our room at 6.30am. No power sockets from the evening before we left. Still no power when we did leave. No TV we could use or hairdyer because of the power. I boiled the kettle in the hallway for tea. Couldn't close bathroom window so road noise. Toilet flush was difficult.

Not as good as last time we visited, dining area nice , outlook from dining room lovely, but sad to say 2 coach parties in the hotel , and they took over the nice lounge area, so had to sit in the public lounge not good if you did not want a drink, or go to your room.

Dinning Room was superb, food good, staff very efficient and Spa facilities not bad although the Steam Room requires a clean up.
Other Comments
Our bedroom was like a dungeon only one window which had to be opened(due to the heat) revealed the kitchen extractor fan. All the hotel (except dinning room) requires some TLC. Hotel charged again for the £169 already paid to you. Said they had not received any payments from Travelzoo. Only when I produced the booking confirmation with the hotel confirmation number on it did I get the £169 refunded. They wanted me to go home and check bank statements initially.
