A cosy, semi-detached studio cottage located in the hamlet of Near Sawrey, two miles from Hawkshead in the beautiful Lake District National Park.
The cottage is perfectly appointed to provide studio accommodation for couples to explore this peaceful and tranquil part of the Lake District.
Nestling amongst a small cluster of cottages and next door to a country guest house, this Lake District cottage is surrounded by stunning scenery around every corner.
With an open plan living area with a double bed, sitting area and kitchenette plus a shower room with a heated towel rail, this holiday home is compact, but a perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Outside this cottage is a small sitting area with endless footpaths and bridleways to explore in every direction.
You will always find somewhere to simply sit back and enjoy this mesmerising landscape.
Just 200 yards from the cottage door there is a footpath leading to Moss Eccles Tarn and Claife Heights.
The views from Claife Heights over Lake Windermere are spellbinding – don’t forget to take your camera!
Just up the road is The Tower Bank Arms Inn and of course, Hill Top, home to Beatrix Potter meaning that without even moving the car you will find lots and lots to do.
There is fishing available on Esthwaite Water and lots of lovely shops and tearooms to enjoy in Hawkshead itself.
Why not explore the other side of Lake Windermere by taking the car ferry from Far Sawrey and cruise over to Bowness-on-Windermere where you will find a colourful mix of shops and restaurants?
Also the beautiful walled gardens at Holehird, just out of Windermere, are a delight at any time of year.
This sweet cottage is compact but a perfect base for couples or just one person to explore this beautiful area.
About the location
Hawkshead 2 miles.
The village of Sawrey is situated two miles from Hawkshead down the eastern side of Esthwaite Water, overlooked by the woods and tarns of Claife Heights. Sawrey consists of two separate hamlets - Near Sawrey and Far Sawrey - both with a cluster of picturesque cottages, tea rooms and pubs. Near Sawrey is famous for Hill Top, the 17th century farmhouse where Beatrix Potter wrote her acclaimed children's stories. Now a museum, owned and run by the National Trust, Hill Top is one of the most visited houses in the Lake District. Far Sawrey is the hamlet furthest away from Hawkshead and the nearest to the ferry point on Windermere. It offers a church and pub/restaurant with a beer garden. There are good walks in the area, including those to Claife Heights and in Grizedale Forest. It's also a great base for enjoying a wide variety of typical Lakeland pursuits - with watersports close at hand on Lake Windermere, fishing on nearby Esthwaite Water and, of course, fell walking.
Notes: Adults only.
