Location

From the Owner

Having spent many years travelling to the Lake District the next natural step was to come and live here. We wanted a village location (must have a pub), that was away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist routes but within distance for our guest. Beatrix Potter got it right. Sawrey is a beautiful lakeland village and the Dan Gibson designed arts and craft house set in the acre of Thomas Morrson landscaped gardens provides wonderful views of the surrounding forest and fells. The house exudes character with its open fires, large rooms, garden areas and lawns. Many guest enjoy the delights of the garden after long days walking on the fells. There is a tranquility that persuaded Miss Potter to lease the house for a year in 1915. Simply a wonderful place to live.

Activity and Interests

A bus timetable is posted in the village 150 metres from the house and buses run at regular intervals during the year. Easy access to Beechmount from Bowness and Hawkshead and ample parking is provided for guests.
