Step back in time and stay in the enchanting village of Near Sawrey, once home to the beloved author Beatrix Potter. It is easy to see the inspiration behind her lovable countryside creatures, as the surrounding landscape is a breathtaking combination of sweeping hills, pockets of ancient forest, and bubbling streams. Your stylish yet cosy haven is perfectly suited to groups of eight guests seeking a tranquil setting for adventures.

Elegant, spacious and featuring a wonderful combination of classic and contemporary style, the property is unrecognisable from its former life as a village shop. Light the wood burner in the lounge and snuggle up with a soothing brew, or step through to the dining area for a delicious afternoon tea. Younger guests will adore the cosy games den, but the country-cottage kitchen will delight chefs in the making. Three inviting bedrooms on the first floor provide a peaceful sanctuary, all sharing the main first-floor bathroom and a handy downstairs shower room. Tucked in the eaves of the house is a second-floor bedroom with an en-suite bathroom – just mind the reduced head height! Wake up to the sound of birdsong, stepping outside with your morning coffee to watch the countryside come to life. Perhaps you could even light the BBQ for a sizzling breakfast treat.

A quick stroll will bring you to Hill House, Beatrix Potter’s famous residence which is now a popular spot for literacy lovers. Esthwaite Water, 1 mile away, offers serene lakeside strolls and ample fishing opportunities, whilst Hawkshead, 2.5 miles away, is a honeypot of cobbled streets and inviting tearooms. Pack up a picnic and embark on an exciting quest to discover Grizedale Forest, 2.5 miles away, an excellent destination for mountain biking and wildlife spotting.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage is very quaint and we were surprised it had 4 bedrooms. A great aspect is the location - there is a walk up to Claife Heights right outside the door - so great for dogs and general walking. There is a lovely tarn about 30 mins away. It is opposite a pub which serves surprisingly good food as well as beer. It is a couple of miles walk toRead more Hawkshead and another 5ish to Coniston. Two other pubs are in easy reach. So perfect location for walking followed by a cheeky beer. Hide

We had an amazing time over the Christmas week at Meadowcroft. The house is really well appointed, with everything we needed to make Christmas lunch. There were walks and plenty of running from the door, and with Coniston only a short drive away we explored over that way too.

With covid restrictions we didnt get to go to any of the local pubs or visit Hill Top, so we hope to return when things are more normal. Hide

Fantastic Holiday cottage, in a beautiful village, surrounded by great scenery. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. The beds are really comfortable too. Log burner was lovely for the cold nights. Perfect for a week away in the Lakes.

Beautiful, cosy cottage in the picturesque village of Beatrix Potters Near Sawrey. The log fire was most welcome after a cold winters day out. The kitchen was extremely well equipped for cooking all kinds of meals, there were even chopsticks and corn on the cob skewers! A hop across the road to the charming village pub and a very quick drive to HawRead morekshead for supplies. The beds were all very comfortable and the cottage was very quiet, perfect for getting our little ones to sleep. Well be back! Hide

This is a large cottage in an idyllic place. It is ideal for multi generation gatherings of family or friends. There is plenty of room for eight yet the property retains a cosy feel. The wood burner is superb. Its location on the west of Windermere suits those looking for a less commercialised Lakes experience. The nearby restaurants of Forest BankRead more and Cuckoo Nest are excellent ( booking essential - yes really). A restorative experience which I would highly recommend. Hide

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
