  • "Outstanding we've been using you for 30 years and this was the best property"

  • "We had an amazing time!"

    We enjoyed swimming in the lake and the house was very nice!

  • "The very few improvements that could be made: 1."

    Cooking is dependent on the AGA. We succeeded in finding a detailed instruction book which allowed us to to use it well - this could be made more prominent, or mentioned in the folder 2. Out initial order of a travel cot and a high chair was not fulfilled, but were provided quickly when asked for. We loved the garden, access to the lake and the very peaceful location.

  • "This a very well furnished holiday cottage in a wonderful peaceful and beautiful situation."

    Niggles: while we should have spotted it from the pictures there are a number of low beams and two of us who are 67 foot hit our heads on them more than once. The electric Aga (we have a gas one) took some getting used to. None of this spoiled what was a wonderful break.

  • "The most beautiful house we have ever stayed in, beautiful location, had one small problem with hot water in one side of the house but maintenance came to us within an hour to sort it, deposit returned within 3 days."

    Really happy, we are already planning a return visit.

About the location


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.
