A fine example of an Arts and Crafts cottage, located in the village of Near Sawrey, and a short distance from Lake Windermere sand Hawkshead.
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.
This pretty, Lakeland cottage, built at the turn of the century, offers all modern conveniences, combined with original features. Being the end cottage of a row of three, it benefits from a large garden and woodland to the rear. In the village of Near Sawrey, so loved by Beatrix Potter, it is in a perfect location - with a pub only a short stroll away, many walks starting from your doorstep and only a short drive to the shops and cafes of Hawkshead.
From the pretty timber porch you step into the cosy sitting room with wood burning stove as a welcoming focal point. There is a sofa and two armchairs, flatscreen TV and DVD player.
