Esthwaite Farm Cottages

A beautiful collection of eleven stone properties, located close to Esthwaite Water, in the idyllic village of Near Sawrey, Lake District National Park. From the moment you approach these delightful cottages, along picturesque narrow lanes, lined by swooping trees and quaint stone walls, you cannot fail to fall in love with this wonderful setting. It is the ideal choice for a break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Set in a charming courtyard, these eleven homely properties provide welcoming accommodation, many featuring a warming woodburning stove. There is a mix of one- and two-bedroom properties, over one or two stories. With some having open-plan living areas and all with comfy bedrooms, fit for a great night’s sleep in this quiet and tranquil part of the world. The large lawned area allows children and pets to play safety whilst you relax and gaze across the valley. Take a walk to the forested hillsides or maybe take the private path down to the water’s edge. This is truly an unrivalled location for exploring all that the Lake District has to offer. Whatever your motivation for taking a break, there’s something for everyone nearby. Walkers and cyclists can get their kicks at nearby Grizedale Forest. Lake Windermere and Coniston Water offer opportunities for river cruises or water sports. Take a drive through the charming surrounding villages, including beautiful Hawkshead, and explore the boutique shops in Ambleside or Bowness. Further afield, the towns of Keswick and Ulverston are well worth a visit, and kids will love a trip on the Haverthwaite Steam Train, just a few miles away. These characteristic cottages offer the opportunity for a memorable stay that you will want to repeat again and again.

The property

This cosy, all-ground-floor, stone cottage is located in the peaceful village of Near Sawrey, within touching distance of Esthwaite Water.

Windermere boasts stunning countryside views towards the Langdale Pikes, and offers charming accommodation for a couple or small family wanting to enjoy the best of the Lake District's attractions, many of which are just a short distance from the property.

Inside, the property comprises an open-plan living room with a newly fitted kitchen, complete with all the mod cons you could wish for, as well as having a shared laundry facility on-site for added convenience, plus a dining table to enjoy meals together and a cosy sitting room with a woodburning stove and wall mounted TV.

There are two spacious bedrooms, a king-size double and a twin, both served by a shower room with walk-in shower.

Outside there is off-road parking for two cars in the shared courtyard, as well as a small, enclosed patio with furniture, accessed through patio doors in the twin bedroom, where you can sit out with a morning coffee and enjoy your scenic, peaceful setting.

Head to Hawkshead, just over two miles away, for a great selection of shops, pubs and eateries, and take advantage of your lakeside location with a stroll around Esthwaite Water, or the equally stunning lakes of Windermere and Coniston Water, just a few miles away.

Head to the National Trust's Hill Top, the former home and writing spot of author Beatrix Potter, and one of the most visited Lake District attractions, as well as enjoying a woodland walk or exhilarating tree top adventure at Grizedale Forest.

Windermere is well-placed for discovering the best of the Lake District.

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.
