    “Fair Rigg is pure comfort and luxury combined.”

    Everything has been thoughtfully designed and included, from plush comfortable seating to the latest TV & sound technology. The kitchen is the heart of the property with its beautiful aga warning the space while family and friends eat and play games at the dining table and granny & grandad relax in the comfortable snug. Upstairs and downstairs the beds and bedrooms are five star plus, luxury - you'd struggle to have a better nights sleep and to find better views to wake up to. The new patio ...

    Everything has been thoughtfully designed and included, from plush comfortable seating to the latest TV & sound technology. The kitchen is the heart of the property with its beautiful aga warning the space while family and friends eat and play games at the dining table and granny & grandad relax in the comfortable snug. Upstairs and downstairs the beds and bedrooms are five star plus, luxury - you'd struggle to have a better nights sleep and to find better views to wake up to. The new patio area is perfect for alfresco dining whilst enjoying the sound of the babbling stream and enjoying watching the boats sail by on lake Windermere. It is by far my favourite retreat and the renovations have surpassed all expectations. We'll definitely be back. Thank you Fair Rigg.

The property

Fair Rigg is an outstanding detached four-star Gold Lakeland residence with views over Lake Windermere and the surrounding area.

The shores of the Lake a few minutes stroll away, with direct access to the water, perfect for canoeing or a host of waterborne activities.

There is vehicular access to the edge of the lake too, with free parking on the road running along the lakeshore below the property.

This charismatic property provides a unique retreat no matter how active, relaxed or sophisticated your gathering. With 6 scenic bedroom suites, 5 of them ensuite, all with different views to the lake or countryside, you’ll be in relaxation heaven.

The main super-king room has adjoining twin room annexe suitable for children.

You only need stock up the kitchen (Tesco offer the best delivery options for the area) and you'll enjoy endless quality time right here in the house; cook up a storm on the Aga and relax by the log burner, unwind in the snug with open fire, chill in the living room admiring the view through the bay window or catching up on the latest sporting events or films on the large screen TV with full Sky package, or escape to the gorgeous furnished gardens or down to the Lake.

Stained glass decorates the entry to the hall, with a boot room and ample storage for walking boots and outdoor wear, with a separate cloakroom.

Superb living room with bay window with views of the lake, comfortable furnishings, large screen TV.

The ‘Snug' is a second quieter living room with comfortable chairs and tables to work or play games, there’s an open fire and further views of lake Windermere, then out to the extensive furnished patio, with more lake views.

The Cuckoo Brow is the nearest country pub offering great food and can be reached by taking the footpath just above the house.

Head to the nearby hamlet of Near Sawrey and you’ll find Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top, The Tower Bank Arms, and lovely walks in idyllic countryside.

Drive a little further and you'll reach Ambleside; a cosmopolitan Lake District village with sophisticated shops, cafes and restaurants.

The car & passenger ferry is a short stroll away and takes you across to lively Bowness Bay, with lots of restaurants, shops bars and boating activity.

Claife Viewing Station high in the woods above the ferry is worth a visit - a Victorian platform from which to view the lake and Wray Castle is a 4 mile walk right along the lakeshore.

About the location

SAWREY

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.
