    We come because the location is ideal, the views are wonderful and we can bring our pets. The cottage is perfect for us. This trip we had just a few little issues that I'd like to bring to your attention. In the handbook it says to not park blocking a neighbouring property's view. We have always adhered to this and never had an issue with other residents until this year. The people staying upstairs had people come to stay over and parked in front of our bedroom window. It was a little embarassing because my boyfriend was just getting out of bed as they stood directly ourside getting something from their boot. We spoke to them and they apologised and they were respectful in future. However a black Audi reg no MV66 NFF started to park outside our windows. It was there for a few days. When we enquired who's it was, we were told by our neighbour that they'd seen them park up and then walk round the corner to a property in the courtyard. After a few days of having to keep our curtains closed for privacy, I put a note on their car asking them to please park respectfully and note the 'house rules' and it didn't happen again. Maybe you could consider designated parking spots to stop confrontation or maybe put a note about this in your email confirmations instead of the handbook which people may not read. Another issue we had was internet access and wifi. We expect the signal to not be as good as at home but this was by far the worst year for wifi connection we've experienced with you. We are certainly not gadget addicts or internet junkies but we are walkers and adventurers and although we do a lot of planning and research before our holiday, we need to keep on top of weather reports while we are there and research alternative things to do if the need arises. We could rarely access internet even when we registered our details to be able to use the wifi. One final point which is very minor is that one of the glasses in the cupboard was dirty when we arrived and there were a few cobwebs on the ceiling in the bedroom. I normally wouldn't even notice the cobwebs but I've recently taken cleaning work myself after my business suffered over lockdown so I'm now prone to notincing that. After all of this we will still book for next year because we love it there so much.

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


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.

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.
