Beautiful Lakeland cottage with many original features enjoying a tranquil location close to many of the Lake District’s most popular attractions.

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).

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

The cottage was perfect. We had 4 Adults, 3 Children and 2 dogs. Plenty of room for all. The cottage catered for our every need. Large, well kept garden with large outdoor table for us to enjoy meals. An extensive selection of books, games and jigsaws to keep us busy in the evenings. Stunning scenery and friendly, helpful locals made our stay extreRead moremely enjoyable. None off us wanted to leave. Hide

The setting of the cottage and the area was fantastic for the age range and walking abilities of our group and the garden was lovely. We were quite lucky with the weather and sat out in the evenings, but there are plenty of games provided in the cottage to keep us busy. We managed to keep our 2 year old guest and the dogs out of the stream at the bRead moreottom of the garden! There were plenty of direct walks from the door which was good for us. Definitely would recommend Hide

The cottage was lovely, in a great location, secluded but 10 minutes walk to a nice Pub. The milkman delivers daily which is a bonus. Using a range as a fire was a treat for us all.

The cottage was beautiful set in lovely enclosed gardens ample space for 7 adults and 2 dogs for a short break but maybe not any longer. Location is fabulous close to a very good pub with great food and dog friendly. Easy safe walk to Near Sawrey and more challenging walks close by. We had a wonderful break.

The cottage is in a great location, one can walk to a nearby National Trust site. A few footpaths lead into various directions, one can walk to lake Windemere in 20-30 minutes. Overall pretty good cottage, needs some minor upgrades.

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.
