Sawrey Knotts

Sawrey Knotts is a small country estate originating from the mid 1800s. The main house, a delightful Lakeland-stone building, has now been converted into six spacious holiday apartments each individually styled with tasteful modern appointments, whilst retaining much of the original character. Adjacent is a cosy, detached cottage, converted from the old coach house. A further luxury detached cottage is situated in the grounds approximately 100 yards from the main house. Situated on the quiet, rural side of Lake Windermere, the properties are superbly positioned on a south-facing hillside, catching the sun and offering magnificent views to the lake. The grounds extend to six acres and offer peace and seclusion.
