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, where the River Leven flows out of it. 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 owned 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.

The accommodation and the food
Other Comments
Our room was on the 2nd floor and there is no lift, so elderly people may want to ask for a room lower down.

It was enjoyable except for the evening meal
Other Comments
The evening meal was quite poor and not good value for money, the main course of pork fillet was cold. For desert I had the rasberry etonmess which was just cream with a little merangue and some rasberry sauce, I did find one rasberry, the desert was sickly and like most people I noted in the dinning room I left mine. The staff were excellent and very friendly. If I book in the future it will be for bed and breakfast only.

yes- the food was very nice
Other Comments
we were housed in an annexe outside of the hotel. the hotel accepts dogs and I suspect that this building would be used for people with dogs! the room had a stale smell. We did not have a dog and don't wish to be staying where a dog has been. Being outside meant that we had to go out in the cold for breakfast and dinner. We don',t expect to put our coats on to go for a meal in the hotel. check out time was 11am. At 10am on check out day I visited the toilet and in walked one of the staff-straight into the loo where I was performing!! She apologised profusely, but I would have thought that she would have checked with reception to see if the room had been vacated? Reception were not very professional-chatting to friends instead of attending to us and eating breakfast at the desk! The staff were saying that they were short staffed-but that was not our problem! The questions below can only be answered from our experience of the annexe, we don't know what the rooms in the main building were

The location, wonderful hotel and outstanding food in the restaurant
Other Comments
Some confusion with the final bill, Newby Bridge saying they had no record of us paying the travelzoo offer, this was eventually rectified as I had paid Newby Bridge directly, but this took two weeks.
