    “Windermere is a beautiful appartment in a lovely setting with exceptional views through its semi circular windows.”

    ...

    We (husband and wife) found the place very well appointed and well decorated. If we had to criticize there would only be two. First it would have been nice to have a dustpan and brush to avoid going to fetch the hoover whenever there was any dirt found in the properrty. Second the towel rail in the batjhroom was far too hot making the room uncomfortably so and there was no way to turn it done. Better than too cold but could have neen adjusted just right. However we recommend Windermere and would gladly return. Brian & Di

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.
