“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Just had a fabulous weekend at Swan View - Railway Cottage. After 5 minutes we felt comfortable and at home. There were 4 adults - and plenty of room for us.
Tony the owner is so helpful and does everything to help make your stay perfect.
We loved relaxing, and sitting in the garden drinking coffee and watching the steam train pass by. The cottage is surprisingly spacious and really homely and clean.
Newby Bridge is a beautiful location with the Swan Hotel just around the corner, The Swan inn has a warm and welcoming bar with amazing food.
We will definately return soon. Thanks Tony for being a great friend and host for us.

“Perfect base for the Lakes!”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This little cottage made the perfect base for discovering the lakes. We would totally recommend taking the steam train to lakeside and visiting the aquarium as well as hopping on the boats for a tour of Bowness and Ambleside!

It was the perfect spot to get to the South Lakes Safari zoo too which was amazing! Xx

Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A fantastic cottage in Newby Bridge, with the added bonus of a steam train passing by at the end of the garden. It is equipped with everything you need and more ! You receive a very warm welcome from the owner Tony on your arrival. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

“Wonderful features, and generous inclusions”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We took this option as we were travelling with a 5 year old who we knew would love the steam train that goes past the back of the property. And he did. Tony leaves a lot of supplies in the house. Newby Bridge is at the bottom of the Lakes District so consider the location if that is an issue. Tong suggested we have meals at Swan hotel - a 4 minute walk , and it was fabulous. We couldn't access the wifi so had to use it at the hotel. Good facilities in the kitchen, great to have washing facilities too.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Arrived on a wet day but the cottage soon cheered us up. Beautifully presented, immaculately clean and contained everything you needed. Home from home. Warm and friendly welcome from Tony the owner. He goes to a lot of thought for his guests. For example he was aware that my husband is a rail enthusiast and Tony had put some books and pamphlets out for my husband to enjoy.

Having the steam train pass at the bottom of the garden was wonderful and just added to the atmosphere.

After a day sight seeing it was lovely to return to the cottage as it just wrapped itself around you.

Thank you for a truly relaxing and peaceful week. We hope to return in the future.
