A fine example of an Arts and Crafts cottage, located in the village of Near Sawrey, the home of Beatrix Potter and a short distance from Lake Windermere.

This cottage is located in Near Sawrey, the location of Hill Top, the beloved home of Beatrix Potter, now owned by the National Trust and a fitting memorial to the writer. Just two miles from the property is the shoreline of Lake Windermere, and the ferry terminal from a where a small car ferry takes visitors across the lake to Bowness. Those who want to enjoy the outdoor pursuits that this area is famous for, will find plenty to do within a few miles of the property, including water sports on Coniston Water, climbing at Dow Crag, the high ropes course and zip wire in Grizedale forest.

Entering this cottage through the timber porch, guests will immediately notice just how much care and attention has gone into the details to keep the interior of this cottage in-keeping with its Arts and Crafts heritage. The lounge features an open fire, and pretty window seat, as well as more modern creature comforts in the form of the TV/DVD, and hi-fi. Across the hall, there is a contemporary kitchen equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher, whilst the washing machine and tumble dryer are located in a separate utility room. The dining room makes the perfect place for enjoying family meals and there is also a ground-floor WC. On the first floor, the master bedroom has carefully chosen antique furniture, including a sumptuous Edwardian double bed, whilst the second bedroom is a tastefully decorated twin with views across the surrounding countryside and twin beds. The bathroom offers the best of both worlds, with a bath, separate shower cubicle and WC.

Outside, the property has a lawn to front of the property, and seating area to the side: a lovely place to relax and enjoy the quiet surroundings. The cottage also has one acre of woodland to the rear of the property, which guests are free to explore. There is off-road parking for two cars on the drive and bike storage is available for guests’ use.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A very sweet cottage in a beautiful location. The decor is a little tired but the cottage is comfortable and pleasant. It is two minutes from Hill Top and there is a lovely park and pub within a few minutes too. Walks and views right on your door step.

This property has almost no mobile signal and no wifi, so be prepared to be cut off. The house is ready for a full refurb and is getting below what I would call acceptable especially as it's not cheap.

Very charming an cosy cottage, with plenty of space and well equipped. Well situated in a quiet location with loads of good walks from the doorstep, but still close enough to some good dog-friendly pubs and the little town of Hawkshead. The welcome basket was definitely a bonus, and made us feel very welcome and settled!
