    “We loved the location and how close this property was to so many lovely walks and villages.”

    The cottage had all of the amenities we needed as well as the information we needed in order to find things and be able to use the property.

The property

Explore the Eastern side of Lake Windermere from this traditional cottage in Near Sawrey, a stone’s throw from Hawkshead.

This country cottage is perfect for families or couples looking to get away from it all.

Enter into the cosy and comfortable sitting room with wooden floor, leather sofas and open fire – the perfect spot to relax.

There is a separate stylish dining room where you can access the decked sun terrace and well-equipped kitchen.

Head upstairs to the two comfortable bedrooms and modern family bathroom.

A holiday cottage in Near Sawrey places you at the heart of the Lakes and close to Moss Eccles Tarn and tranquil Esthwaite Water which lies between Near Sawrey and Hawkshead village.

Nearby Hawkshead village is enchanting with its car-free cobbled streets, its air of history - fascinating historic attractions include the Hawkshead Grammar School museum and the former home of Beatrix Potter, open to the public at Hill Top.

There’s also a selection of pubs to enjoy as well as The Little Ice Cream Shop and tempting treats at Hawkshead Relish.

Despite the secluded feel, Hawkshead village remains close by and the car-ferry crossing over Lake Windermere to Bowness is minutes away.

About the location


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.
