Within walking distance of Windermere and on the edge of the hamlet of Far Sawrey - with its popular pub and village shop - this beautiful, detached cottage is in a stunning location - perfect for those who want to enjoy the Lakes.

If you’re looking for somewhere special for a celebration or getaway with family and friends, look no further than this gorgeous rural retreat.

This home is both elegant and stylish, with sumptuous furnishings that add to its homely ambience.

French doors lead from this room out onto the patio as well. Oozing character, the inviting lounge will relax you as soon as you walk in, with comfortable sofas to curl up on and an open fire for chillier evenings. One of the cosy bedrooms, a double, is to be found on the ground floor, while three further rooms are on the first floor. Each has been designed in warming, neutral tones, to create an oasis of calm. The en-suite in the king-size room has its own indulgent spa bath. Enjoy some al fresco dining outside on the patio, while the children and dogs explore the large lawned area.

Follow the house’s footpath down to Lake Windermere and catch the ferry across to the town of Bowness. Stroll to Claife Heights, also within walking distance, where a purpose-built platform gives incredible views across the water.

This wonderfully, appointed home from home, is found in Beatrix Potter country (Hilltop Farm is a short walk away) - a beautiful setting and a short walk from the shores of Lake Windermere.

A really lovely cottage with plenty of room. There were 6 of us and 2 dogs and we spent a great week there.

The location is idyllic and the cottage very well equipped with all necessities. It is a pity that the actual Stables have been allowed to be now merely a dumping site for the building work that has taken place here and also no guidance given re. recycling.

Nice cottage in a good location, lovely big garden for dogs, although the wall on one side is a bit low so if your dog was an escape artist it could easily hop over! The cottage is very clean but is a bit tired inside and could do with some minor maintenance work to be done.

This cottage is in a great location and suitable for dogs. The kitchen has a good layout with lots of space, however there is no salt, pepper or oil, so be sure to bring all of the essentials yourself! The beds a little uncomfortable and the property itself could do with a bit of TLC as some of the walls have paint/plaster worn off.

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.
