    “We had a very enjoyable stay and the highlight was each evening we took out chairs down to the lake at erthsthwaite and enjoy the setting sun and peace.”

Esthwaite Farm Cottages

A beautiful collection of eleven stone properties located close to Esthwaite Water in the idyllic village of Near Sawrey in the stunning 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 can’t fail to fall in love with this wonderful setting, 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 with many featuring a warming woodburning stove. There’s a mix of one and two bedroom properties across ground and first floor settings some with an open plan living area and all with comfy bedrooms guaranteeing a great night’s sleep in this quiet and tranquil part of the world. The large lawned area ensure that children and pets can play in safety whilst you relax and gaze across the valley to the forested hillsides or maybe take a walk along the private path to the water’s edge. This is truly an unrivalled location for exploring all that the Lake District has to offer so 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 watersports. 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 Railway, just a few miles away. These characteristic cottages offer the opportunity for a memorable stay that you’ll want to repeat again and again.

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
