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

This charming 17th-century, Grade II listed cottage enjoys a delightful location in the picturesque village of Far Sawrey, just half a mile from Beatrix Potter’s former home at Hill Top. Providing cosy accommodation for four guests and a pet dog, the property makes a cosy and relaxing retreat for a family or a couple looking to explore this spellbinding part of the Lake District.

 

This historic property has been beautifully updated but retains many original features including a flagstone hallway, exposed beams and oak panelling. The light and inviting lounge is a lovely space to relax in at the end of a fabulous day. You can share a family meal in the dining room with its antique dining table and lovely garden views. The bright, stylish and fully-equipped kitchen is perfect for cooking up a storm. Heading upstairs, there are three relaxing and tastefully decorated bedrooms – two singles and a double. The main bathroom can be found halfway up the stairs, with an additional WC on the first floor. The enclosed garden features a patio with seating and a pretty lawn for children or dogs to play on. The owner’s secure garage can be used for storing bikes and muddy boots. Please note, dogs are only permitted downstairs at this property.

It is what it says, a 17th century ( part of ) cottage, so do not expect luxury. Lovely location with the local pub, serving good food, within a 3 minute walk.

We know this area well, holidaying annually for the last 10 years in Far/Near Sawrey. Excellent location with pubs within walking distance. Lots of walks from the door. Use of the garage was really helpful to store bikes. Listed cottage with beautiful small garden. Only downside is if you are a tall family then the bathroom setup is quite awkward wRead moreith the sloping ceiling. The interior of the cottage is quite small/cosy for a family of 4 on a rainy day.

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.
