Semi-Detached Cottage For Rent, Minutes Away From Beatrix Potter's Famous Home
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Can't fault this place. The communication with the owner was excellent and everything was perfect when we arrived. Loads of room, the bedrooms were airy and clean and the kitchen was very well stocked. We were very lucky as we had amazing weather every day so we made full use of the balcony and the awesome views.

Its a short walk from Hill Top and the local pub and a nice walk into Hawkhead down the lake.

Can't recommend highly enough, we will definitely try to come back.

Fantastic stay at Cottage Near Sawrey

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this lovely cottage for a holiday with family or friends. The location is ideal, surrounded by peaceful countryside, beautiful views and a charming pub within a few minutes walk.

The cottage is equipped to a very high standard with extremely comfortable beds, luxurious bed linen, all mod cons and a nicely appointed kitchen. I particularly liked the deck/terrace and the private garden. We had a superb holiday and would definitely return.
