Conveniently located within a short walking distance of lake Windermere and the villages of Windermere and Bowness, Newstead is a must for the discerning guest looking for affordable, quality 5-star bed and breakfast accommodation with extra special character in the English Lake District.
Built in 1897 of traditional Lakeland stone, Newstead is a fine example of a detached Victorian villa. The house retains many original features including its Victorian verandah, splendid hall and staircase, marble fireplaces, mahogany woodwork and even its serving bells.
The guest house has been stylishly refurbished to a high standard with the extensive use of attractive and colourful designs from the Arts and Crafts, Art Noveau and Gothic movements recalling the splendour of Victorian times. The guest rooms comprise standard UK double-sized beds and larger king and super-king size 4-posters located on the first and second floors. All rooms are en suite with showers.
Newstead guests can relax in comfort in the period guest lounge and enjoy a hearty traditional cooked breakfast or vegetarian alternative in the Victorian styled dining room.
