Where you’ll be

Cumbria, England, United Kingdom

Located in the hamlet of Far Sawrey, walks and outdoor pursuit are in abundance from the doorstep. The cuckoo brow inn is located less than 5 minutes from the property and has a wide range of cask ales, extensive wine list and quality home cooked food. The village of Hawkshead is a less than ten minute drive away with convenience store, bars, restaurants and the world famous Hawkshead Relish. This is also the entrance to Grizedale Forest whereby there is some incredible mountain bike tracks and forest trails.

Hawskhead and the surrounding area is famous for the inspiration of the Author Beatrix Potter, her farm hill top is within easy walking distance as well as the tower bank arms, a famous watering hole for the author. Much of the land surrounding Far Sawrey was purchased by Beatrix in order to protect the local farming communities and the nature that inspired so many of her books. This was later donated to the National Trust who now look after the land in her honour.

The neighbouring towns of Ambleside & Windermere are also a short drive away, and offer a great collection of Artisan Shops and restaurants.
