Beautiful terrace cottage in the pretty hamlet of Far Sawrey, less than two miles from Lake Windermere, the perfect base for exploring the Lake District.

Located in the delightful hamlet of Far Sawrey, this beautiful cottage is the perfect retreat for holidaying with friends and family. Sleeping six people and welcoming one dog too, it’s an idyllic base for exploring the surrounding countryside and sights. A great local pub is within walking distance as well, making this a fantastic rural hideaway.

Tastefully and elegantly styled throughout, this charming home boasts many period features which add to its character. The delightful lounge has a traditional feel and is warm and homely, making it a super place to snuggle up on the sofas and enjoy the warmth of the cosy wood burner. The pretty and bright kitchen/diner is a lovely space for guests to gather, with everything to hand in the stylish kitchen if you fancy rustling up a meal which can be enjoyed around the spacious table. The three relaxing bedrooms are all decorated in neutral, warming tones, to create a calming atmosphere that will lead you to a restful sleep. One is located on the first floor, while two are on the second with low sloping ceilings and enjoy lovely views of the surrounding area. Enjoy some al fresco dining on the patio, with steps leading to an enclosed garden where the children and dog can roam freely. A handy shed is also perfect for storing bikes.

Take a gentle half-mile walk to the neighbouring village of Near Sawrey, which is home to Hill Top, the 17th-century former home of author Beatrix Potter. Try your hand at some of the water sports on offer at Lake Windermere (2.5 miles) or take a leisurely cruise ride if you’re feeling less energetic. Grizedale Forest (3 miles) is packed with some great woodland trails to follow, while the village of Hawkshead (3 miles) is a must if you’re looking for a great pub to eat in.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This comfortable, well equipped cottage is perfectly placed for vising some of the best spots in The Lakes, yet is in a peaceful idyllic position opposite a lovey church, with rolling hills front and back. I t is quiet, but a short stroll up the lane takes you to The Cuckoo Brow Inn. We had a food delivery so the lack of local shops was not an issuRead moree. (preferred it that way) You can walk down to the ferry to Bowness. Thank You. Hide

The cottage is fantastic, as always. We very much enjoyed our holiday, and were spoiled with the glorious weather which meant that we could eat our main meal outside every day. There were one or two broken items, such as the cafetiere, which previous visitors had clearly not reported, but the agents were very good about replacing them quickly. TheyRead more also sorted out a problem with a ripped duvet cover that was supplied for our second week promptly and politely. Hide

This was our third visit to Brook End, and it is still our favourite place to stay. It is ideally placed for exploring the southern Lake District, set in a lovely, quiet place but within a few minutes walk to two great pubs -The Cuckoobrow, and the Tower Bank Arms. Unfortunately we had a water leak on the first day, but this was sorted and repairedRead more quite quickly. There were one or two issues regarding the cleaning prior to arrival, but hopefully these will be addressed for future guests. Hide

The cottage is an excellent base for covering the southern Lakes, whether you want beautiful accessible walking or more strenuous challenges. The area is very calm and relaxing. Ambleside, Coniston and Hawkshead are all within easy reach. The furnishings are very comfortable and the washing facilities are good - always plenty of hot water.

Beautiful cottage, set in a gorgeous location surrounded by the sounds of baa-ing lambs. Comfy beds to fall into after a day of walking the many beautiful fells, and a roaring fire to toast marshmallows on. Everything you could ask for in a home away from home.

We stay in this cottage 3 or 4 times a year, mainly because of the facilities it offers and the location. It is in a quiet, friendly village but within easy reach of Hawkshead, Ambleside and Coniston.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
