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.

Three great bedrooms and two toilets. Very well equipped kitchen and great dining room. It was very comfy and cosy. In a very quiet location just two minutes walk to a great pub with a great selection of ales etc. And some great food. Some great walks from the front door saved having to get behind the wheel of the car every day. We would definitelyRead more book again. Hide

Beautiful little cottage perfectly situated for Windermere and Coniston and everything both these areas have to offer. It was great to have the three bedrooms which were all of a very decent size, and we loved having dinner in the garden room / dining room. Lovely garden with outstanding views.

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.
