Beautiful first-floor apartment in a beautiful country house, located in the village of Far Sawrey and enjoying easy access to scenic walks.

Boasting some fantastic views across to Lake Windermere, this first-floor apartment enjoys a superb location in the peaceful village of Far Sawrey. Sleeping five people across three bedrooms, and with one dog welcome to join you too, this is an idyllic spot for a family holiday. Winding footpaths leading from the front door to some of the Lake District’s most popular sites, make this a great choice for outdoors lovers, while complimentary access to the Burnside Spa in Bowness is also included.

This pretty apartment is located up a staircase within a grand country house, offering elegant accommodation with many period features. The open-plan living area is a sociable space with a large bay window providing spectacular countryside views to the mountains beyond. Settle down onto the comfortable sofas and enjoy a family film, while budding chefs whip up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen. Tired hounds will enjoy stretching out in front of the open fire, which can be found in the kitchen area. Recharge those batteries with a restful night’s sleep in the three relaxing and calming bedrooms. Those lucky guests waking up in the master bedroom will be treated to that wonderful scenery, too. Outside you’ll find plenty of spots to sit in the extensive shared gardens, while the dog has a roam.

Follow the footpath which leads from the apartment to the summit of Claife Heights, which has a purpose-built viewing platform with superb views of Lake Windermere. If you love the water, hop on a pleasure cruise across the lake. The local pub is a short walk away if you don’t fancy cooking, while there are also some fantastic places to eat and drink in popular Hawkshead, 3 miles away. Have a go on a Segway at Grizedale Forest (3 miles), which is packed with some lovely woodland trails.

This is a lovely apartment with fantastic views. Nice and clean, warm and comfortable - would heartily recommend for a peaceful break. Not recommended for disabled or elderly wanting to walk roundabout though due to the hilly terrain and steep access to the property. However, very restful overall and would definitely rebook.

Lovely old property set in attractive grounds with a view of lake Windermere. The general location was perfect. There was easy access to local hikes as well more famous walking close by. The chef at the local pub, a short walk from the property, was excellent, so we enjoyed superb meals after our hikes.

An absolute delight in terms of location. Truly peaceful and relaxing. Stunning views from and all around and lovely walks to do from the property. The garden was lovely and blissful to sit and hear the birdsong. Definitely a place to go and unwind and switch off.

Brilliant location great views from most rooms. Not enough room for 5 adults to sit comfortably in lounge. Very cluttered in lounge/diner. Some furniture and furnishings in need of attention. Holes in cushions would not ecpect this in a 4 star property.

This was a last minute break away for me, my husband, 3 teenagers & 1 dog. The propert was lovely. It was clean & had everything we needed. The location for the Cuckoo Brow pub was perfect as we didnt even need to walk on the road. We love the walks from that area so we will definately look to stay there again.

Beautiful old building in lovely surroundings. Perfect for a relaxing holiday in the Lake District countryside. Plenty to do, Motor Museum at Lakeside and River Cruises excellent. Nice, friendly pubs with quality food.

Reviewed by Caroline 21st July 2018

We have stayed in this area of the Lakes for 8 years. This was our first time at Sawrey Knotts. It was perfect for our family ( two boys aged 10 and 12). Lots of cycling and walking from the door. A swim in Moss Eccles Tarn. Two pubs within staggering distance. Since last year extra off road paths have been added making it safer to cycle from HawksRead morehead with children. The view from the apartment is fantastic and the Spa membership was a lovely bonus. We are all keen to return next year. Hide

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.
