activities in the Newby Bridge area

There are several reasons the the area attracts thousands of visitors every year, great water sports, miles of walks and cycle trails, beautiful beaches, quirky shops, fascinating museums and some of the most jaw-dropping scenery in the world are just a few.

Being only a 5-minute drive from both Windermere and Bowness means when you stay at Avon Wood, even though you feel as you are far from civilisation you are in fact close to the action as both villages offer a multitude of attractions.

Fans of the Peter Rabbit books will love The World of Beatrix Potter which is just a hop, skip and a jump away. Not just for kids, the interactive displays and life-size models really bring the famous stories to life and tell the interesting tale of the author herself. There is a themed café and well-stocked shop for souvenirs too.

For something a bit more unusual why not take a trip to Whitehaven where you will be transported to the Caribbean with a visit to The Rum Story. Set in the original 18th century shop you can learn all the production, the history, and the slave trade and it would be rude not to buy a bottle to sample back at your hot tub hideaway

Of course, no visit  would be complete without some messing about on the water whether it be water-skiing, kiteboarding, sailing, fishing or simply taking a leisurely boat cruise and snapping some photos of the spectacular surroundings.

Whether you spend your time exploring the surrounding countryside, enjoying fine cuisine in one of several Michelin starred restaurants or simply relaxing in the warm bubbles of your private hot tub with a glass of champagne; You are certain to have a holiday to remember.
