    • “Loved the accommodation incredible views and situated in a fanstatic location for getting around, would definately return.”

    Ms Cooper, Littlehampton, August 2018

    • “We have been to one of the cottages last year we had a lovely time so we wanted to come back once more. Have booked up for next year already. The area is just beautiful love it.”

    Mrs Cheyne, Clackmannan, June 2018

    • “We were very pleased with the cottage, it was exactly as described and in a lovely location.”

    Mrs Isaac, Boston, May 2018

    • “outdated, and not impressed that you can hear the people in the property below”

    Mr Wrey Brown, March 2018

    • “A cosy, warm apartment, we enjoyed the log fire. Could do with a little tlc and a bit of extra cleaning in nooks and crannies. Main downside was noise from apartment below, walls are very thin. But had everything we needed, great place for a base if planning a walking holiday.”

    Miss Alderson, Halifax, January 2018

    • “Fabulous pre Christmas birthday break with my family and dog. The area was quiet, but not too far from Hawkeshead, Windemere and Coniston. The cottage was clean, tidy and had all homely comforts. I booked a table at the local pub 'The Tower Bank Arms' which was perfect and only a few minutes walk away. Esthwaite lake was also just a short walk away. Perfect.”

    Ms Knox, Whitley Bay, November 2017

    • “The apartment was a very reasonable price, and as expected it was very small and basic. It was reasonably clean (a bit dusty in the nooks and crannies). The location was great and we had a lovely time.”

    Dr Winter, Oxford, October 2017

    • “Not hot water for 3 days and mould in some areas of the building.”

    Mrs Heppleston, Tayport, October 2018

    • “The cottage was clean and has lovely views from the lounge window. It was good there is a phone booth with I presume a working pay phone because there was no mobile signal. Good field to give the dog a run before going out for the day. Local information is scant. The first night we drove to Ambleside to Tesco extra and there is a co-op in Hawkshead village. The heating system is electric night heaters and it is very hot in the bedrooms in the middle of the night nut if turned lower it was quite cold in the cottage during the day. I would stay there again but not in the winter months.”

    Mrs Palmer, MANCHESTER, April 2018

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.
