Detached cottage on a quiet country lane, just a few miles from the water’s edge at Lake Windermere and with easy access to country walks and hikes.

Visitors should be sure to take one of the numerous pleasure cruises around the lake, to enjoy the scenery and to visit some of the interesting lakeside towns and attractions, including Wray Castle, Ambleside, and Bowness. The village of Hawkshead is just over two miles from the cottage and offers a range of village amenities, including pubs, shops, and several National Trust property’s,  including the Beatrix Potter Gallery. The village pub is only a short stroll away.

The front door of this property opens onto the entrance hall, which is a handy place to leave boots and coats. Moving through to the main house, there is a reception room with a bench seat and table which leads on to the country style kitchen/diner, with its attractive Welsh dresser and table next to the patio doors which open on to one of the property’s patios. The kitchen is well-equipped with oven, hob, microwave, Belfast sink, fridge, dishwasher and an under the counter freezer with three drawers. The washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in a separate utility room. The cosy ground-floor lounge has an open fire, comfortable chairs, TV, and DVD. One of the bedrooms is also on the ground floor, a double room, which is found just beyond the lounge. There is also a ground floor shower with WC. Upstairs, guests will find two more bedrooms: the master bedroom has a four-poster double bed and its own TV, whilst the other is also a double. There are two bathrooms on this floor: The main bathroom which has a bath with handheld shower and WC, and a shower room with WC. The first-floor is also where guests will find the second lounge, a spacious room with a sofa and TV. It is from here that the second patio is accessed, via a set of French windows.

Outside, the property has two pretty flag-stoned patio areas, one on the ground floor and the other on the first floor, which are linked by stone steps (please take care to supervise children on the steps). Opposite the cottage, there are two off-road parking spaces.

Lovely cottage close to Beatrix Potter's Hill Top Farm. Easy driving to Hawkshead, Windermere, Ambleside, Coniston. Two lounges on ground and 1st floor an advantage.

Ideally situated, walking distance to Esthwaite Water and Hawkshead, very peaceful surroundings. The cottage has the benefit of 2 sitting rooms, we much preferred the upstairs one as it is much brighter and leads on to a pleasant outside seating area.

Lovely cottage in a superb location, plenty of walks from the door, pub and hotel just up the road. Very flexible accommodation, which ideally suited our party of 6 adults and 3 dogs.

Cosy and warm cottage in a very pretty part of Lake District. Lovely kitchen, very peaceful surroundings but near enough to civilisation if needed just across the ferry! Fabulous main bedroom. We have been going to Sawrey for over 60 years and never tire of the area and will hopefully continue to enjoy holidays for many years to come.

Same great location, same cosy comfort, but new garden furniture, I see, Not that we used it in late October. Lakeland Hideaways excellent as always.

Reviewed by N Woollacott, 1st July 2016

We had a fantastic,relaxing,busy and thoroughly enjoyable week in the Lake District. The location of the cottage meant that we could walk to all the places we wanted to visit as it was the first time we'd visited in High Season and the roads are busier than when we normally visit. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything we could possiRead morebly need to make our stay enjoyable. The whole family, including the dog had a great holiday and we are looking forward to returning as soon as possible. Hide
