Within walking distance of Windermere and on the edge of the hamlet of Far Sawrey - with its popular pub and village shop - this beautiful, detached cottage is in a stunning location - perfect for those who want to enjoy the Lakes.

For those who want to spend their holiday enjoying Lake Windermere and it surroundings, there could be no better place to stay. A footpath leads directly from the property to the shore of the lake, and to the ferry terminal, where the boat runs across to the town of Bowness. Claife Heights, a National Trust-owned viewing platform, is within walking distance and offers unrivalled views across Windermere. The cottage is located in the hamlet of Far Sawrey, the neighbouring hamlet to which is Near Sawrey, a popular destination for visitors who wish to visit Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter.

Entering this beautiful property through the hallway, guests come to the elegantly styled kitchen/diner, the focal point of which is the Aga, with its pretty tiled surround. There is also a large dining table here, as well as an electric hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. French windows from this room lead out onto the property’s patio. The lovely cosy lounge has a warming open fire, comfortable sofas, TV/DVD, and hi-fi. Also on the ground floor there is a double bedroom and a shower room with WC, which also houses the washer. On the first floor of the property there are three more bedrooms, the first of which is a spacious king-size room which benefits from a pine dressing table and a seating area with sofa and TV, alongside a very well-appointed en-suite bathroom with a shower over the spa bath and WC. The second first-floor bedroom is a twin room with en-suite shower and WC, whilst the last room is an attractive single room.

Outside, there is a patio area with seating close to the house, giving way to a large lawn which enjoys views over Lake Windermere. There is off-road parking provided and a bike shed for bike storage.

Lovely location with many walks close by. Garden is enclosed apart from a gate which fell down ages ago. One of the walls is low so bigger dogs may jump over. Cottage is very comfortable but the Aga smells of oil badly and is very warm. We had to open the windows in February. Pub is 5 mins walk away but down a steep slope. Ferry is 15 min walk but Read moreferry doesn't always run in bad weather. Check Twitter or the signs by the Cunsey turn off. Hide

Beautiful location & views. 15 min walk to Windermere (uphill on the way back) on either a rocky path or the A road. Excellent food pub less than 5 mins walk down a safe path (take a torch!). The house is old fashioned, cosy, warm, generally very well equipped (missing champagne glasses and tumblers), great showers, decent towels, lots of space. VeRead morery good value. We were a 3 - it would have been a bit of a squeeze with 7. Hide

The house is in a beautiful quiet spot. Very well laid out inside and extremely warm with the AGA . At times it was too hot and we turned many of the radiators down. We loved seeing the squirrels and deer in the garden. Numerous brilliant walks from the doorstep. The house is obviously well used and its starting to look tired but nothing paint and Read morevarnish wouldnt fix. Hide

Beds very comfortable, Having a daily milk/grocery delivery was great. Good location, 5 minutes walk from the lake and Ferry. Very warm

Great accommodation and location. Great standard but needs a little TLC. If bringing dogs great garden for them, but consider low wall on one side is easy for medium size dogs upwards to jump. Would definitely book the property again

Perfect base for a holiday in the lakes. Peaceful and close to a very welcoming pub.

A lovely cottage tucked away in a quiet and beautiful area of the lakes. Very homely feel and plenty of space both inside and out. Lovely spot! House is very warm due to AGA so needed most windows wide open on hot days.

Our family of 6 adults spent a wonderful week at Sawrey Stables. The accommodation was every bit as lovely as in the website photos -- spacious and comfortable with a warm and cosy feel (due to the Aga and the real fire in the living-room). The enclosed garden was perfect for the dog and we all enjoyed sitting out on the secluded terrace enjoying tRead morehe view. The dog loved going for walks with us from the cottage down to the lakeshore. We will definitely be back! Hide

A great spot for a family holiday all three generations had a great time. You could spend a week here without using the car lots to do in easy walking distance.

A lovely, secluded location with a number of different walks right outside your front door. A nice, enclosed garden for those with little ones or dogs and a short walk to the very welcoming local pub. Rooms were all clean and tidy and the house furnished to a high standard. A perfect place for families, couples, friends and lovers of The Lakes.

A fantastic location in a beautiful area. It had everything a family or group of walkers could need.
