The village of Near Sawrey is very close to Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter is now open to visitors and offers a wonderful insight into the author’s life. There is also a pub and restaurant in the village, whilst just down the road, the neighbouring village of Far Sawrey is a must see. Lake Windermere is just 2.5 miles away, as is the ferry terminal, from where regular boats run across to the town of Bowness.
This stunning property offers single-storey accommodation sleeping eight guests and is reached via a quiet track lane.
