  • “The property is quite tired, cracked walls, dirty interior decoration, water stained bathroom ceiling, window fixings loose and difficult to open & close correctly, front door has to be gently kicked open and slammed to close, I think the bathroom above is leaking into the ceiling.”

    A lack of a freezer was a disappointment, I'm sure it was probably noted in the advertisement but I missed it and wasted a lot of money shopping in Kendal to then arrive and realise there was no freezer. A local farm provided milk every day, which whilst a nice touch I couldn't drink a pint of milk in a day and ended up pouring 3 bottles of milk down the drain to return the bottles and pay the final bill, happy to support local small businesses but hate to waste 'food'. ...

    A lack of a freezer was a disappointment, I'm sure it was probably noted in the advertisement but I missed it and wasted a lot of money shopping in Kendal to then arrive and realise there was no freezer. A local farm provided milk every day, which whilst a nice touch I couldn't drink a pint of milk in a day and ended up pouring 3 bottles of milk down the drain to return the bottles and pay the final bill, happy to support local small businesses but hate to waste 'food'. Parking was also an issue, as there are no clearly defined parking spaces tempers were becoming frayed with irrational parking by other guests who decided to park, having reversed in against the building, right outside my living room and bedroom windows. The 'garden' space outside and access to the lake were a nice feature and part of the reason why I opted to stay with two large dogs in tow. There was a lack of any tourist information at the property, the only guide in the property was from 2017. The property is well placed for Ambleside, windermere, Grassmere and Keswick - Kendal, I grew up in the region and know the area very well but a stranger would have been lost. There are two decent local pubs within a 5 and ten minute walk but there is clearly no co-operation with local businesses, no advertisements or menus etc, very disappointing. Complete lack of lighting in the external parking area, whilst timed lighting is available at the front door there is nothing in the 'car park' or into the gardens and down to the lake. The TV was tiny estimated 19- 20 inch, very dated sky box with limited access to programmes, I appreciate you don't go to the lakes on holiday to sit in doors watching TV but its still nice to have the news on in the morning or evenings and be able to see the TV! Cleaning products inside the property were also non existent, washing liquid and a quarter of a cleaning cloth aren't really ideal to keep the property clean throughout the stay, surely in the owners best interest to provide a small range of cleaning products to keep the place looking and smelling nice. I don't wish to criticise, the dogs and I had a very pleasant week, the property is just a little tired and grey making you just want to get up and leave for the day as soon as possible, delaying the return for as long as possible.

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.
