Delightful period cottage sleeping eight guests, located in Beatrix Potter’s home village of Near Sawrey in the beautiful Lake District, just two miles from the shores of Lake Windermere.
Located in the popular village of Near Sawrey, this charming cottage is a lovely base for larger groups of friends or family. In its previous life, it was the village shop and features in Beatrix Potter’s Tale of Ginger and Pickles. Sleeping eight guests and two dogs, a games room is a welcome addition for guests of all ages, while the local pub is within walking distance and the nearest shops 2 miles away.
This elegant four-bedroom property has a welcoming and homely feel. The spacious lounge offers a stylish and comfortable place to relax and unwind, with inviting sofas and a wood burner to snuggle in front of. The dining room is open-plan to the lounge and is furnished with a large glass table for sociable meals together. A further reception room takes the form of a games den with computer consoles and a DVD, which is a great retreat for those looking for a challenge. If you’re in the mood for a spot of cooking, the bright kitchen is well-equipped for all your needs. Stairs lead up to the first floor where three bedrooms are to be found, each with its own restful theme. A further set of stairs lead to the attic and a colourful en-suite bedroom, with some reduced head-height due to the sloping ceiling. Fire up the BBQ in the small patio to the rear of the property.
Explore Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter, which is located in the village. Hop on a boat and cross Lake Windermere (2 miles) to Bowness, a bustling town with a good range of shops and eateries. Walk to Claife Heights (2.5 miles) where its viewing platform looks out over the lake. For some fantastic woodland trails, Grizedale Forest (2.5 miles) is a must.
