    “The house is very well appointed and comfortable.”

    The view out of the front window over the rural landscape is also stunning, especially at sunrise. It is well worth setting the alarm, so that you do not miss it. The owners were also keen to make sure that everything was perfect and were very friendly. The location is away from the main tourist towns and because of that it is extremely quiet - perfect for that get away from it all holiday if that is what you are after. There are also a few local walks that get you to lovely view points within ...

The location is away from the main tourist towns and because of that it is extremely quiet - perfect for that get away from it all holiday if that is what you are after. There are also a few local walks that get you to lovely view points within half an hour of leaving the house. I would certainly book the house again for future visits. The main supermarkets at the other side of the lake are only half an hour away but the location of the house is worth that little extra drive.

Far Sawrey Cottages

These delightful Edwardian stone-built, semi-detached cottages are situated next door to a working livestock farm, on the edge of the small village of Far Sawrey, close to the village of Near Sawrey and within reach of Hawkshead in the wonderful Lake District National Park. Oozing character and charm and with superb country views, these cottages will appeal to two families who wish to travel together, but stay in separate accommodation. The accomodation is suitable for wedding stays in the local village. Identical in layout and size, the properties have three bedrooms, two of which have feature fireplaces, and there’s enough space in the open plan living area for guests to relax in comfort. Outside each property there is off road parking for two cars and a front garden area from where you may wish to enjoy a cold drink on a warm summer’s evening, whilst being surrounded by your loved ones. There are walks from these lovely holiday homes with one across the fields that will take you to Hill Top, once the home of Beatrix Potter and now a museum owned by the National Trust. Only a five minute walk away is the village of Far Sawrey which has a pub with the pretty village of Hawkshead offering a wealth of character with whitewashed 17th century houses, tea rooms, pubs, gift shops and the Beatrix Potter Gallery. A must whilst staying at these charming cottages is to enjoy a lake cruise on Lake Windermere, with sailings daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside, whilst other attractions and activities in the area include walks in Grizedale Forest, fishing on nearby Esthwaite Water and the Aquarium of the Lakes. Two excellent holiday homes for exploring all that the stunning Lake District has to offer.

About the location

FAR SAWREY

Hawkshead 3.9 miles; Bowness (via ferry) 1.5 miles.

The village of Far Sawrey has a pub/restaurant, whilst 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. Watersports are close at hand on Windermere, along with Lake Cruises and the majestic Wray Castle to admire. Fishing can be enjoyed on nearby Esthwaite Water and, of course, fell walking.
