A great spot for a family holiday all three generations had a great time. You could spend a week here without using the car lots to do in easy walking distance.

Reviewed by Hayden 3rd March 2019

A lovely, secluded location with a number of different walks right outside your front door. A nice, enclosed garden for those with little ones or dogs and a short walk to the very welcoming local pub. Rooms were all clean and tidy and the house furnished to a high standard. A perfect place for families, couples, friends and lovers of The Lakes.

A fantastic location in a beautiful area. It had everything a family or group of walkers could need.

This is such a lovely cottage - a real home from home. Its very well furnished with quality sofas, beds and furniture. The Aga is very easy to cook on and keeps the cottage really warm with constant hot water. The location is superb and the surrounding countryside is stunning. In fact, it was all so good we are going back again this December!

We loved the cottage, its location is great for walking and also close to good pubs for lunches/suppers out. The area is stunning, the cottage warm and welcoming.

The cottage was perfect, beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. It was so well equipped, we wanted for nothing - a real home from home. It's location was idyllic and the scenery around the cottage was breath taking. We loved the aga and the having fresh milk delivered each day was a real bonus - very thoughtful.

The holiday cottage Sawery Stables was everything we wanted for our family stay in the Lake District. It was a shame that the vehicle ferry, 15 mins walk away was not running during our stay. However a passenger ferry was available. The cottage is located in a quiet, high location, with views from the rear garden over lake Windermere, visible over Read morethe trees. There are numerous walks from the cottage which we explored to the full. We would love to stay here again. Hide

The location is just superb, with a lovely view from the back garden. It is is in a quiet spot, with the natural sounds of bird song. The house is very well equipped, it has an Aga to cook on, and dishwasher etc.. It was very a comfortable cottage as a base for our walking holiday.

Lovely detached cottage in excellent location. Quiet, close to pub and lake. The cottage is great for an extended family holiday. The only slight downside is that the Aga makes the kitchen/dining area uncomfortably warm at times, although it is very handy for drying wet clothes!

I am very grateful for the advice I received from one of the gentleman at the company, who advised me thoroughly and honestly about which cottage would suit the particular requirements of my family and our purpose. We had a whole family gathering of 8, with half the family coming from a distance, including small children. This cottage really turnedRead more out to be perfect for us, and provided a wonderful foundation for a lovely family gathering. Everybody felt very happy, peaceful, contented, safe and comfortable here. The staff at Lakeland Hideaways were so friendly and welcoming, and when we arrived at the cottage we felt very welcomed by the layout, and the fact that everything was ready for use, and basic requirements were provided for. The cottage and grounds were very clean, and the garden is beautiful and has been maintained very well. The children spent a lot of time in it, as did we all with family games. We all felt very appreciative. It was so lovely and quiet and due to its isolation, it gave us the privacy which is nice for a family. We enjoyed the peaceful location, and you can go off for great walks right from the doorstep. The cottage is only several minutes away from Hawkshead village which was handy. The staff were extremely kind which made a huge difference. I would recommend this cottage to anyone, and would love to stay here again. Hide

enjoyed our stay at sawrey stables. Enough room for 4 adults, 3 children and 2 dogs. Well equipped and warm which is essential for elderly grand/parents. Handy also having the downstairs bedroom since one of our adults can't easily get upstairs. Living quarters were spacious and well stocked with equipment. Sky and wifi available as well as books/gRead moreames/toys for children. Kitchen has fridge/freezer (good size) and aga as well as electric cooking rings and a dishwasher. There is also the washing machine. From the cottage you could walk down the path to the passenger ferry. 50 p to walk on with easy access to Bowness (but a good 2 mile walk there and back). Also easy to walk to Hill Top. Enjoyed Tower arms. Cuckoo Brow Inn welcoming. Food reasonable but preferred Tower Arms but ideal as close to the cottage. Hide

I am spoilt by this part of Cumbria as it is where my father's family came from. As such I have family in the area and feel as though I belong. Sawrey Stables is a nice quiet cottage with a good feel about it. We have stayed there many times.
