Little Esthwaite Cottage description

Holiday home
Little Esthwaite Cottage is a ground floor, semi-detached cottage in the hamlet of Near Sawrey in the Lake District National Park. This cottage sleeps two people and has a double bedroom with en-suite shower, a kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburning stove. Outside there's off road parking for one car, a private patio and shared gardens with furniture from where views of Esthwaite Water can be seen. Little Esthwaite Cottage is an ideal romantic retreat with plenty to see and do nearby.

The village of Sawrey is situated two miles from Hawkshead down the eastern side of Esthwaite Water. Sawrey consists of two separate hamlets - Near Sawrey and Far Sawrey - both offer a cluster of picturesque cottages, teas rooms and pubs. Near Sawrey is famous for Hill Top, the 17th century farmhouse where Beatrix Potter wrote her acclaimed children's stories, which now is a museum that's owned and run by the National Trust. Far Sawrey is the hamlet furthest away from Hawkshead and the nearest to the ferry point on Windermere and offers a church, a Post Office/store and pub/restaurant with a beer garden.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

What's not to like? The location of Little Esthwaite Cottage is excellent. The owners were so nice and very helpful with regards to giving advice on places to visit. The cottage is cosy, but very well presented. The views and outside space were amazing. We can't wait to go back.

The views were amazing as was the overall feel of the cottage. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The lake was beautiful and if the rain had stopped the fishing would have been great!

We loved our stay, the cottage is set on beautiful grounds and was lovely, warm and homely with excellent views to sit and look out at. The log fire was perfect and gave it a real cottage feel. I would definitely come and stay again and would recommend to others.
