    • “Perfect location for our break with our dogs. Plenty of great walks, welcomed at local pubs with 2 large dogs and accommodation offering all the comforts of home.”

    Mr Purcell, Birmingham, December 2018

    • “Nice quiet area, views are great, cottage was lovely. You could do with sorting the gaps out around the front door and the shower tray drained very slow. But all in all me and the wife loved the area and look forward to coming again.”

    Mr Broomhead, December 2018

    • “Lovely location. Plenty of space and dog friendly. Hope to be back on the spring.”

    Mr Marston, November 2018

    • “Lovely location, excellently presented. Although the hot water failed for a day it was fixed promptly.”

    Mr Hulse, Tyn-y-Gongl, October 2018

    • “Stunning location. The accommodation is not luxurious but it is comfortable and spotlessly clean. The garden is great for dogs and children but although there have obviously been tubs for bedding plants in the past these were no longer in use. It did look a little lacking in TLC as a result. My husband has limited mobility and although Coniston is not specifically adapted for disabled people he was able to manoeuvre his walker around inside with no problem and use the shower with the suction grab handles that we brought with us. The only issues that we had were a) not enough toilet paper - there is an "allowance" of 2 rolls so if you think that you are going to use more then bring some with you! b) We had very heavy winter weight duvets, we asked if they had any summer ones but they did not but we were supplied with an extra sheet to use with the bedspread. If we continue to get such hot summers then this is maybe something the managers of the accommodation would like to consider. We will certainly return”

    Miss Carr, SCARBOROUGH, June 2018

    • “It was our first visit to the lakes ,the cottage was absolutely brilliant the scenery was stunning , the gardens were immaculate and we spent many evenings there watching the sun set over the hills , The location was perfect to explore the area . We will defiantly be coming back very soon to the cottages. Thankyou for an amazing experience ! .”

    Mr Waller, Broadstairs, May 2018

    • “Bathroom not too clean,and a bit shabby compared to the cottage we had last year No teaspoons, had to buy some, no dustpan and brush for quick spills, had to go right round building for a Hoover. Fabulous location tho, we thoroughly enjoyed it. These are just minor issues”

    Mrs Ohare, 99699, May 2018

    • “Comfy beds, hot shower an near by pubs, eating out with dogs no problem, what more do you require! Dry weather would make it 100%”

    Mrs Walker, HUDDERSFIELD, November 2017

    • “Found the cottage very clean and comfortable very pleased had lovely holiday *******”

    Mrs Mogridge, Dagenham, June 2017

    • “Position - lots of walks direct from property. beautiful location, quiet. towns nearby if needed. good local pub dog friendly. Look forward to going back to site, hopefully with family members next time we liked it so much.”

    Mrs Wilkins, Hastings, June 2017

    • “Needed a little updating and a few running repairs. Bathroom sink tap loose, shower needed a new hose and no light in cooker hood.I am being really picky .Some outside furniture would have been nice.Still had a great holiday. Many thanks Clive.”

    Mr Graham, BISHOP AUCKLAND, May 2017

Regional Information

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.
