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.

Brook End is easily the best cottage we have stayed in. The cottage is well appointed and having two bathrooms is a definite bonus. The kitchen has a good selection of pots, pans, cutlery, crockery and glasses and there is a large pine table for dining.

The location is idyllic, on a quiet road but with easy access to the village and numerous walks in the surrounding countryside. Hide

Cottage was perfectly placed, extremely well laid out and was very warm with the fire lit. Right in the countryside with plenty of walking paths from the door.

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.
