Welcome to Beatrix Potter country! This magical 17th century Lakeland cottage nestles in the picturesque hamlet of Far Sawrey, conveniently placed between Hawkshead and Windermere. The Grade II listed building oozes with the kind of character and charm one dreams of; exposed beams, open fire, solid fuel stove, terrace to sprawling garden and a gently flowing stream running by.
Fall in love with rural life in one of the Lake District's prettiest settings, with easy access to amenities, attractions, entertainment and lake cruises by taking the car ferry across Lake Windermere to Bowness.
