I have been lucky over the years to travel a fair bit, and stay in some of the nicer Hotels around. I can say with some ease, that this is the best hotel I have stayed in to date. I am totally unable to find a single point to criticize, which really is saying something! We booked in on Monday... More

Whilst we didn't stay in this hotel as we have a 3 year old and a 4.5 month old we visited for drinks on the terrace which has amazing views of the lake. We returned a second night when we were celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary only expecting to be sitting on the terrace. When discovering it was our Anniversary... More

Just returned from 2 nights at the hotel and had a very nice relaxing time. The location of the hotel is great in a very small quiet village away from the beaten track. The views from the hotel are outstanding, especially from the dinning room or at breakfast, You can even watch the wild rabbits run around whilst eating your... More

We booked the hotel for one night by chance as our aim was to see Beatrix Potter's Hilltop farm before continuing our journey to Scotland, where most of our holiday was spent this time. We arrived rather late, and just in time for dinner. We were placed out on the terrace with a drink while looking at both the menu... More

Our two night bargain mid week break was excellent value for money and exceeded our expectations. We had a basic room which was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The food was excellent, an interesting and varied dinner menu, beautifully presented. The breakfast was one of the best we have had. The staff were all very friendly and efficient... More

Albeit we stayed during a heatwave, but to relax on the terrace overlooking the lake, while the swallows swooped over the lawn, with a drink in hand (us not the swallows) was a delightful experience. This charming hotel is in the heart of the small village of Near Sawrey and right next to the National Trust "Hilltop" ticket office. We... More

This was our second visit to the Sawrey House hotel and generally we were again impressed. This time we opted for a lake view room which was worth it with great views over the lake. Once again the staff were more than friendly with a warm welcome. We were lucky this time to have excellent weather, sitting on the sun... More
