Property code: LCC33

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.

Great location for local walks and nice local pub. Very well equipped for cooking as well as lots of books, games and DVDs. The rooms were very comfortable and a bathroom on every floor for big families is great! Would stay again!

We enjoyed a lovely week at the beginning of October. We were a group of 6 Adults & 2 dogs & this cottage had plenty of space & everything we needed to make our stay extremely comfortable. The wine, chutney & jam were a lovely touch.

The cottage is very quaint and we were surprised it had 4 bedrooms. A great aspect is the location - there is a walk up to Claife Heights right outside the door - so great for dogs and general walking. There is a lovely tarn about 30 mins away. It is opposite a pub which serves surprisingly good food as well as beer. It is a couple of miles walk toRead more Hawkshead and another 5ish to Coniston. Two other pubs are in easy reach. So perfect location for walking followed by a cheeky beer. Hide

We had an amazing time over the Christmas week at Meadowcroft. The house is really well appointed, with everything we needed to make Christmas lunch.

With covid restrictions we didnt get to go to any of the local pubs or visit Hill Top, so we hope to return when things are more normal. Hide

Fantastic Holiday cottage, in a beautiful village, surrounded by great scenery. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. The beds are really comfortable too. Log burner was lovely for the cold nights. Perfect for a week away in the Lakes.

Beautiful, cosy cottage in the picturesque village of Beatrix Potters Near Sawrey. The log fire was most welcome after a cold winters day out. The kitchen was extremely well equipped for cooking all kinds of meals, there were even chopsticks and corn on the cob skewers!

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.
