If its a birthday, or family celebration we will decorate the living area for a small fee, please enquire.

Also more pics on Facebook and our other lets in Blackpool, page./Rawcliffe Holiday Lets.

Our hot tub is checked by an outside company on every changeover to ensure it is clean, however if previous guests have frequently used the tub this may make the water dirty and will have to be changed, this will mean that the tub may not be hot enough on your arrival day until later that evening or the next morning as it has to re heat the new water supply.

Newby bridge is an outstandingly beautiful part of the lakes, and the property is located right at the heart of this location, yet only a short stroll away from the Swan and the Newby Bridge hotels, which both have good restaurants. The quaint village of Cartmel is only a 15 min drive away, which is where you can find the famous Michelin star, l'enclume restaurant.

About Lynn Rawcliffe

I have been letting holiday cottages in the lakes since 2004 and offer luxury holiday accommodation. I am very keen to ensure that all my guests in all my cottages are always very well satisfied and depart the cottages having had a marvelous holiday. I decided quite early on to offer accommodation which allows guests to bring their dogs whilst still enjoying luxurious surrounding, I am a dog owner myself and always found it difficult to find good quality holiday lets that also allow dogs. I am very proud of the fact that I have managed to combine both.

Lynn Rawcliffe purchased this house in 2007

Why Lynn Rawcliffe chose Newby Bridge

The Haven is a very special property, it took me a full year to renovate and enlarge to add on a spacious extension and conservatory which now capture the magnificent views, which no matter what time of year it is, always remain spectacular. The house is modern with open plan living, which has proven to be successful when occupied by large groups or families. I always prefer to meet and greet guests to offer that personal touch and to offer ideas of where to go in the surrounding area, as Newby bridge has a lot to offer.

What makes this house unique

As previously mentioned, the views from every window are very special, the walks and the fact that fell foot park is right next door and can be accessed via the field and which runs by the river. the garden is great for entertaining and the fire pit at the bottom of the garden is always a hit with guests. there is also a spacious hot tub which is available to guests all year round..

Big birthday weekend.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely spacious comfortable and well equipped home. It is fabulous and even some rainy weather did not detract from the whole experience. Lynn is the perfect host with quick responses and flexibility wherever she can. All 8 of us plus the 5 week old grandson and Loui the puggke had a great time and cannot wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for feedback. The hot tub is actually on permanently. It is checked by a specialist firm on every changeover day, however, if used frequently by previous guests it sometimes need to be topped up with fresh water which means it then takes time to get back up to temperature, unfortunately this cannot be avoided and the cleanliness of the tub is always priority. As the owner I actually clean the house and once a month I go through all the crockery and glasses and replace any damages as the house is always busy with bookings and as a result the equipment does get damaged. I also keep on top of general maintenance for example, this week the large lounge has been repainted along with the downstairs bathroom. With regard to the beds I am sorry you found them uncomfortable, however I haven’t received negative feedback before about the beds, it is difficult to satisfy everybody’s idea of what is a comfortable mattress as some people prefer soft and others hard. I do take on board the guest pack may need updating and will see it gets done, thank you again for your feedback.

Best place that I’ve stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house, really nice decoration, every room was excellent, all had en suites, one larger front room and kitchen perfect for larger groups of people another large conservatory area both with large tvs and sky. Really nice outside garden area with large hot tub. Scenic views out the windows of the room. Went up for my 22nd birthday with 9 friends and thouroughly enjoyed the weekend and staying there, would recommend to anyone. I initially thought it would be out in the sticks with no shops near but there was a petrol station and cafe a minutes drive away. Lynn was also a really nice host, very accommodating as I forgot my watch in the house at the weekend but she has found it and offered to send it back for me. The price was also excellent for the house and services that you get, I would 100% return here.

Sheer luxury

  • 5 of 5

22/12/17 - 29/1217

Celebrated my 70th birthday with my children and grandchildren and had the best time ever.

We were greeted on arrival by Lynn who showed us around this beautiful property.

It was decorated for Christmas with two Christmas trees which was lovely.

The property itself is furnished to the highest level making it a very comfortable stay.

Having rented properties over the years this is the first time we have found it so well equiped for all of our needs.

I highly recommend this property and thank you Lynn.

Spacious, fantastic for a family get together

  • 4 of 5

We went to The Haven to celebrate my 70th birthday. It's a lovely property in a beautiful setting close to Lake Windermere. Very well equipped and comfortable with lots of room for us all to spread out. The hot tub is an added bonus. We had brilliant few days there & would love to go again.

Absolutely fantastic. Location And facilities. We had a brilliant time.

  • 5 of 5

We went for my parents anniversary. There was 8 of us. This cottage delivered everything to us that we love about the Lake District. Lake Windermere at the bottom of the garden. Steam train passing every 20 mins opposite side of the lake. Two great standard hotel restaurants and Rural coffee shop all within walking distance. Even the wet weather didn't dampen our stay. 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
