Stayed for one night in September 2016. Gorgeous location in a very quiet area 5 minutes from Hawkshead/ Lake Windemere. We had originally booked room 8 which is beautifully decorated, spacious and had a lovely view however we moved to the cottage which is even more beautiful. The log fire is a perfect touch and made the cottage feel very... More

Beautiful guest house set in lovely Cumbrian countryside, a stones throw from "Hilltop", the home of Beatrix Potter. Tastefully decorated throughout, the comfortable bedrooms look out over rolling fields and come with tea and coffee included. Whilst wi fi is supposedly included, it struggles to reach the first floor despite the boosters dotted about the place. However it is fairly... More

My wife and I stayed for one night. We were warmly greeted and taken to our room which was comfortable and well appointed. The next day, after a very good full English, we were given some directions for a 6 mile circular walk that you can take from the property. It includes tarns, woods and quite a lot of damp,... More

We both find it very good and the staff were most helpful. As my wife is partially disabled, they couldn't do enough for us to make our stay most pleasant. The staff even booked us into a fine hotel for our evening meal, where the landlord was very helpful as we were there solely to visit Beatrix Potter and the... More

Highly recommend this lovely Counrty House for Bed and Breakfast! Far Sawrey. The bedrooms were a good size, lovely comfy bed and well decorated bathroom. In fact the whole place is very tastefully decorated. Breakfast was delicious, cooked by the owner. Full English, as well as a good selection of cereals and pastries.
