About the location
Hawkshead 3.9 miles; Bowness (via ferry) 1.5 miles.
The village of Far Sawrey has a Post Office/store and pub/restaurant. Bowness, with all its shops, restaurants and leisure facilities, is just a short distance across the lake by ferry. Also close by is ‘Hill Top’, once the home of Beatrix Potter, and Hawkshead with its picturesque 17th century cottages. Footpaths lead from the grounds to the village and Claife Heights - a noted beauty spot of forests and tarns. Sawrey Knotts is also ideally placed for the enjoyment of a wide variety of typical Lakeland pursuits - with watersports close at hand on Windermere, fishing on nearby Esthwaite Water and, of course, fell walking.
