  • “Nice apartment although you do get quite a bit of noise coming through the ceiling from the apartment above.”

    Facilities were good the wood burner was especially nice after a day of walking. Shared facilities were ok with hand sanitizer provided. The two Hoover's that were provided had seen better days though and I had to empty one before I could use it which in the current climate wasn't great. I was also surprised to see the cleaners when they came to clean a different apartment didn't have any PPE on and one was carrying the towels resting up against her face! Again not great in the current climate ...

I was also surprised to see the cleaners when they came to clean a different apartment didn't have any PPE on and one was carrying the towels resting up against her face! Again not great in the current climate! We also found a dirty cup and some crumbs in the cutlery drawer which did make us wonder if the extra deep clean had been done efficiently. There was also broken glass near the bins so didn't seem anyone was checking them. Communication could have been better too as we didn't know what the situation was regarding recycling. All in all though a good apartment brilliantly situated for exploring the South Lakes although getting in and out of the drive wasn't for the faint hearted!!

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.

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.

Please note Esthwaite property is an independent company and no one has rights to be on the water or fish or swim without paying Esthwaite water fishery. Please contact the Estate office before arrival
