We spent the weekend in The Tower Bank Arms and had a lovely relaxing stay. Large comfortable room (Methera) with a view and nice en-suite shower. We found the staff very friendly and knowledgable about the area. The pub itself was very atmospheric and cosy and the food was great. Beautiful village and great spot for exploring The Lakes. Enjoy your stay!

We recently spent a weekend in the lakes staying at the Tower Bank Arms. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and made sure we had a really relaxing stay. The food was great and there was no strict times for dinner or breakfast which we really appreciated. Our room was lovely, very roomy with lovely views over the fields. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a lovely relaxing break in a quiet spot in the lakes.

Room Tip: We stayed in their largest room 'Methra' which i think was worth the extra.

Great food especially the breakfasts. My wife, an expert in these matters, reckons the chips are the best she has ever eaten. Three well kept, hard to resist, local real ales. Plus a decent selection of wines.

Very friendly and helpful staff. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made very welcome by all who were looking after us.

Bedroom small but comfortable.

Lovely friendly little inn with great character and charm with only four rooms so very relaxing. Food was great and I would challenge any one to have the beef stew and dumplings and be able to manage a sweet although the merengue and berries were difficult to resist. The surf and turf is well worth a try if its available as the scampi is home made. The breakfast is served between 08:30 and 09:00 so makes you get up and get out and there is a good choice with good helpings and you can have extra toast. Anthony is very friendly and knowledgable about the area and the best places to visit so very helpful when you only have a few days to squeeze it all in. Although quite remote it is quite central and gives good access for days out to Coniston, Derwent or Ullswater and of course a short walk down the road is the ferry to Windermere. Wast water and the other lakes in the west involvegoing over the Hardnot Pass to Boot which is a loverly run but pretty hairey on the bends and very steep. Our dog was allowed in the room with us and in the bar area where breakfast is served but not in the dining room where you have your evening meal but you can eat in the bar if you can find a table free. Derwent water was the only lake we found that had a footpath almost all the way round and a ferry stops at 6 pickup points if you get a bit tired or runout of time. If travelling to the hotel by satnav beware it will try to take you to Windermere and then across on the ferry so you need to go via Ambleside unless you fancy a ferry trip.

Sawrey is a lovely village.Beautiful setting.Tower Bank Arms is lovely as a village pub but as a place to stay it is overpriced.Rooms small and in need of decorating.Shower very ineffective and the towels were threadbare.Staff were very friendly and helpful but would not return unless they dropped their tariff.Owned by National Trust.I assumed they would be of a higher standard.It looked to be in desperate need of external decoration too.Breakfast served only between 8.30 and 9,00 am.Breakfast was reasonable with a choice .

Room Tip: All rooms of similar standard
