Attractive 17th century listed cottage in the village of Far Sawrey with easy access to countryside walks, a short drive from Lake Windermere.

This delightful 17th century Grade II listed cottage has retained many of its original features including low doorways, exposed beams, traditional slate floors and panelling, which all add to the charm of this hidden gem. Situated between Coniston Water and Lake Windermere in the delightful little hamlet of Far Sawrey, where Beatrix Potter wrote many of her famous stories, the cottage is also close to Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Nearby is Esthwaite Water, a fantastic fishing lake which also inspired Wordsworth. Ambleside, Coniston, Grizedale and Grasmere are within easy reach, and Windermere and Bowness are a short ferry ride away. With breath-taking scenery and activities for the whole family, this idyllic spot guarantees a memorable holiday.


On entering this attractive cottage, the flagged hallway takes you into the cosy and traditional lounge where you relax with TV, DVD, and charming views. Heading into the kitchen with two windows overlooking the garden, you will find everything you may need including oven, fridge/freezer, washing machine and microwave. Exploring the ground floor further, you will find the airy and light garden room with dining table. With delightful views of the pretty garden, this is a perfect place for a special meal. Going up a couple of steps you will find a quaint bathroom complete with hand-held shower and WC. Heading upstairs you will find three comfortable bedrooms, all of which enjoy garden views. There’s a comfy double bedroom, and two cosy singles. There is also an additional WC.


Stepping outside, you can relax at the end of the day in the delightful enclosed garden, complete with patio area and garden furniture. There is a secure garage shared with the owners, which is ideal for storing bikes or muddy boots and walking gear. Private off-road parking is available for two cars.

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.

Lovely Quaint Cottage with great walks and pubs on the doorstep Pepper Yeat is a quaint cottage in Far Sawry and therefore very close to the local pub which serves excellent evening meals and is dog friendly. The Tower Bank is also only a short walk away. There are many great walks right from the door including Claife Heights and Cunsy which leadRead mores to the shores of Windermere. Whilst the cottage was cosy it would've been a squeeze for more than a couple and a dog. The only thing that wasn't convenient was the shower which was fixed to the bath taps and not the wall however this was a very minor thing in the grand scheme of things and wouldn't put us off returning at all. Theres a nice little cafe Hillstop just a few metres away however we only managed to find it open just the once which was a great shame as we would've used it every day otherwise. We will return to the area this year but to a larger cottage for 4 of us and the dog :-) Hide

We really enjoyed our week. It was a brilliant location and very good for us having a dog, as in not carpeted downstairs and with a room you could go straight into from the garden. It was also very good for us having three rooms _ one double and two single, as opposed to one double and one twin (which was the case with most other cottages we lookedRead more at). Our teenagers were very happy not to share! it's not modern inside, but it's a cottage! We would happily go back. Hide
