    “We stayed in this cottage last year and fed back comments then regarding the general state of repair.”

    The radiator in the hall is extremely rusty and this year the back bedroom smelled very badly of damp and mustiness. The French windows in the lounge are in a bad state of decay with a large gap in the bottom which is obviously very draughty. The outside light, shower light and vanity light over the mirror in the bathroom do not work. The kitchen cabinets are all showing signs of wear, the veneer peeling away from the bottom of the doors. The carpets are now beginning to smell and are ...

    The radiator in the hall is extremely rusty and this year the back bedroom smelled very badly of damp and mustiness. The French windows in the lounge are in a bad state of decay with a large gap in the bottom which is obviously very draughty. The outside light, shower light and vanity light over the mirror in the bathroom do not work. The kitchen cabinets are all showing signs of wear, the veneer peeling away from the bottom of the doors. The carpets are now beginning to smell and are generally badly worn. We were expecting a better grade of décor and cleanliness than last year. We will not stay in the cottage again unless it is completely refurbished which is a shame because we love the actual cottage and the position within the complex.

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.
