“birthday treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2011

we were only going to stay one night originally, but pleased we booked 3 nights. Great location, very nice room with lake view at the top of the hotel, soft towels, dressing gowns and slippers and bathroom toiletries add a great touch to the overall experience. The food was very good, with a great range of breakfasts. Even the table cloths were ironed at Sawrey House, (shame on you 'Sharrow Bay' where we had afternoon tea on my wife's birthday on 24th) The views from our room were brilliant, as were the outlooks from the lounge, bar, and restaurant.
The welcome from David & Toni was very well received, and they have worked extremely hard to arrive at this point. Well done. We would gladly recommend a stay here to all our friends, and hopefully return ourselves at some time.

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend break at this hotel and we had a fabulous time. We booked having read all the comments on Trip Advisor and it certainly lived up to expectations! The location is superb, with gorgeous views. We had a lovely room with a four poster bed. The food was absolutely excellent and we really couldn't fault anything about the hotel.

Just spent three nights at Sawrey house and simply cannot fault it for comfort, food and the warm welcome from everyone.
Toni and David work hard to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible and it's the thoughtful gestures that make it differ from other places.
You're doing everything right and all your hard work is paying off.

We didn't come for a holiday in the Lakes with the purpose of trying to establish where you bought the furnishings (which are excellent) or measure the size of the en-suites ((which are also excellent) as recorded by a previous guest, who obviously missed the fact that the whole of the hotel displays original works of art by Lakeland Artists!

We came as a group of eight friends who regularly holiday together. Our requirements were, a pleasant and very comfortable lounge and bar ( with lovely views), superbly prepared food, five star rooms, managed by very charming people who would fully understand the needs of their customers: and that is what we got.Then of course the rest of the Lake District is on your doorstep.

I booked at short notice in one of the few remaining hotels rather than B&Bs in this area available at a reasonable price in a superb setting. The rooms are large and comfortable and I was given a good deal on a double room overlooking the village of Nr Sawrey. Very relaxed but has the formal rooms (bar, lounge) available for catching up with friends or the blackberry so easy to relax if it rains all morning. Breakfast a good mix of cereal buffet and hot freshly prepared food served at the table, and evening meal menu is good. I had two evening meals in - one was poor, the other excellent and shared with friends who were staying in a cottage neareby. The food is close to London prices so the standard should be high. The dining room setting is superb with great views over the valley as the sun sets. Rabbits playing on the croquet lawn proved quite popular with guests. A lovely garden to relax in and afternoon tea generally available - which is becoming rare in this area these days.

Room Tip: The best rooms overlook the garden
