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 fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

For me and my friends this cottage represents everything a Christmas break should be. It's situated in a totally pollution free area and is completely quiet and regenerative for the mind and body. The cottage is comfortable and easy to relax in, not too many bare floors and stark furnishings, an open fire, comfortable sofas with plenty of cushions.Read more On our arrival lamps were lit, including a Christmas tree and the heating was on. In the dining room the table was ready for a celebratory meal. Hide

Loved our second visit to Sunnyside - its in a lovely village with lots of walks although quite a lot of road walking to get to footpaths. Hawkshead is lovely and also the walk from there to Tarn Hows. The dogs loved it too

Lovely location, essential are all in and working. Nice dog friendly pub within walking distance. Great location for dogs although a fair bit of walking on leads and country lanes.

The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. It was a short walk from the Pub (Dog friendly) and Beatrix Potter's home. It was also about 3 miles from the Vehicle ferry crossing to Bowness, which saved a long twisting drive around the lake.

Comfortable, relaxing break with lovely scenic walks close by. Dogs loved the large enclosed garden and log fire. Great pubs and village shops a short drive away.

The cottage is in a quiet lane, just down from Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's house. There is a pub in the village. Inside, it is comfortable. We bring two dogs, which is why we come here. We have stayed here four times.
