  • Beautiful detached cottage with many characterful features in a quiet rural location – the perfect Lakeland hideaway
  • Very homely and inviting with open-fires
  • Sunny, south-facing private garden with patio, located in the lovely hamlet of Far Sawrey, close to Lake Windermere
Property code: LLH02

Located in the pretty hamlet of Far Sawrey and oozing old world charm, this beautiful cottage is a perfect Lakeland hideaway for larger groups of friends and family. Accommodating seven guests and two holiday hounds, it’s surrounded by countryside and offers easy access to some superb walks. The local pub is a short stroll away and the popular chocolate box village of Hawkshead is just a 5-minute drive.

This delightful home has been converted from two smaller cottages to create a spacious and welcoming home. Traditional features add to its character, cleverly combining the modern comforts you’d expect. You’ll find everything you need in the contemporary kitchen, whether you’re making a hearty lunch or an evening snack, which can be enjoyed either in the breakfast room or the more formal dining room. Your guests will waste no time in settling down to relax in front of the original range, with open fire and bread oven, which adds to the charm of the homely lounge. The four bedrooms, which are accessed via stairs at each end of the cottage, are inviting and cosy, ensuring everyone gets a restful night. Enjoy some al fresco dining in the pretty south-facing garden, which has a lawn and patio area to enjoy, as well as a stream running along the bottom.

Pack a picnic and explore the many walks and trails which run past your front door. The cobbled streets of Hawkshead (3 miles) are a delight to wander around, before stopping off at one of its tea rooms or cafes. Don’t miss the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses many of the author’s original drawings and illustrations. Try out canoeing, paddle boarding or rowing at Coniston Water (7.5 miles) or for something a little less energetic, enjoy a cruise on Lake Windermere (2.5 miles).

What a stunning location and the cottage was ideal for a family get away. There was plenty of room to spend time together and also space for quiet times. The garden was peaceful and plenty of space for 2 dogs, the stream at the bottom of the garden was of no interest to my dogs but may not be suitable for some dogs or small toddlers.

Lovely cottage in a great location but let down by avoidable issues. There was dog messes in the garden, the caffetiere was found dirty in the outside bin, mildew stained pillowcase, little hot water on arrival, and bath plug didn't work (but was repaired on day 3 of our week long stay) . We raised these issues during our stay (2 days into our stayRead more when the office was first open) with a reasonable response and agreement I'd follow up when home from holiday, but no response to my email Hide

Great cottage with plenty of space. Everhot stove keeps kitchen warm and good for cooking. Fire and woodburner make it cosy when weather cold and wet.

Beautiful cottage in the best location. 2 minute walk to a pub, which does great food. It's very warm and cosy. The log fire is the cherry on the cake. Plenty if room, games, tv etc we loved the everhot stove. It made the dining area very cosy and traditional. The location is ideal for walks or just completely getting away from it all and relaxing.

This cottage is in a lovely location! Its a very quiet little village surrounded by countryside with an enclosed garden that was great for our dogs. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are nice but the rest of the cottage is a bit tired. It could really do with a lick of paint with some new furnishings.

I would definitely recommend staying here. Its the second time we have stayed and I would definitely return. The picturesque cottage sits in really quiet surrounding with lots of local walks. After a busy day the living room is a welcome sight with comfortable settees and a warm cosy feel. Hawkshead is just up the road with lots of lovely pubs thatRead more serve food. I would also recommend the fish and chip shop in Hawkshead. The ferry is also a short car journey away or even a walkable distance. Hide

Hi there, firstly when we arrived there was so much rubbish in the dumpster from the previous occupants that the lid was propped open and flies were buzzing around the side of the house. To solve this I had to personally compress their rubbish down by hand and now the lid can be shut, a job I didn't relish to start my holiday. However there is no rRead moreoom for any of our own rubbish of course. I was not offered any refund for this odious task, but I'll re-do this review if some is forthcoming. Hide
