A fine example of an Arts and Crafts cottage, located in the village of Near Sawrey, the home of Beatrix Potter and a short distance from Lake Windermere.
Located in the peaceful village of Near Sawrey, this charming ‘Arts and Crafts’ cottage is a rural treat for four people and three of their dogs. Just 3 miles from Lake Windermere, and surrounded by some fantastic walks and woodland, it is perfect for a family or couples’ getaway. The nearest pub and restaurant are within walking distance meaning you can do as much or as little as you like.
With careful styling and decoration, this period property hasn’t lost any of its character and has a welcoming and homely ambience. Get the open fire going in the cosy lounge, as you all settle down to watch a film while the four-legged family members snooze at your feet. The contemporary kitchen is designed with everything you’ll need if you’re in the mood to cook, while the dining room is a lovely spot for getting your guests together for a meal. Upstairs, the soft and pretty decor in the two bedrooms ensures you’ll awake feeling refreshed and ready for a new day. Enjoy your morning coffee on the lawn to the front of the property or take a seat in the area to the side. The cottage has a 1-acre woodland to the rear, which the children and dogs will love to run around in.
Don’t miss the chance to visit Hill Top, the beloved home of Beatrix Potter, which is located in the village. Lake Windermere (3 miles) has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a gentle stroll, cycle or boat ride. Explore the church-like interiors of Wray Castle (4 miles) which sits on the shores of the lake. For a different mode of transport, take a ride on a steam locomotive, complete with 1950s carriages, at the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, 8.5 miles away.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
