Attractive 17th century listed cottage in the village of Far Sawrey with easy access to countryside walks, a short drive from Lake Windermere.
Enjoying a peaceful countryside location, this delightful 17th-century Grade II listed cottage is a real hidden gem. Situated in the pretty village of Far Sawrey and with easy access to Lake Windermere, it’s a great base from which to explore the beautiful Lake District. Sleeping four people and one dog, there are some fantastic walks to be found on the doorstep, while the village pub is just a short stroll away.
With attractive period features retained throughout, this welcoming home is full of charm and character. A flag-stoned hallway brings you to the lounge, with original oak panelling and feature fireplace, where you’ll be curling up with a good book or film in no time. The pretty dining room with antique dining table is perfect for gathering the family together for a home-cooked meal, which you can comfortably whip up in the well-equipped kitchen. Three pretty bedrooms are to be found on the first floor, each with its own unique feel and providing a cosy place to rest at the end of the day. Back downstairs, a door leads out from the dining area into the enclosed garden, which is the perfect spot for children and dogs to play, while you relax on the patio with a glass of something cool. You are also invited to store bikes and muddy boots in the owner’s secure garage.
Stroll half a mile to the neighbouring village of Near Sawrey, where you’ll find Hill Top, a 17th-century farmhouse and former home of Beatrix Potter. Discover some lovely places to eat and some independent shops to wander around, in the pretty village of Hawkshead (3 miles). Lake Windermere (2 miles) has something for everyone, whether you fancy a hike, a cycle, or a relaxing cruise across the water.
