  • “Well we have had another great stay at Derwentwater and the general cleanliness and the revamped look was great.”

    ...

    there were plenty of mugs plates and utensils this time even a pizza cutter!! It was really quiet there and the bed was very comfortable so getting out for 9.30 was a bit of a struggle!! As a builder i really struggled not to build you a proper stone fireplace! maybe next time lol the internet is an issue really but luckily one of our phones had 4G so we were able to create a hotspot and and get wifi onto laptop and i pad!! Bearing in mind we run three businesses its an important aspect of any place we stay. we have been coming there for about 15 years so we will be back hopefully. having just looked at Sykes to re book i found the price had doubled for next October ................ not sure why? thanks Chris and Trish

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.
