Just a few hundred yards from Beatrix Potter's former home, Stoney Croft is nestled in the peaceful village of Near Sawrey just outside Hawkshead village. Found along a quiet lane leading to Moss Eccles Tarn, Stoney Croft Cottage has a picture postcard setting that's guaranteed to inspire. Walks abound in all directions, the National Trust owned Tower Bank Arms is only a stone's throw away, and the cottage itself is a soothing retreat. Tastefully modernised to 4 star standards, the interior is homely, enjoys a spacious living room and separate dining area, and opens out to a serene sun deck. Despite the secluded feel, Hawkshead village remains close by and the car-ferry crossing over Lake Windermere to Bowness is minutes away. Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car. Enter into the cosy yet contemporary lounge with wooden floor, deep-cushioned leather sofas and open fire. Separate, stylish dining room with access to the decked sun terrace. Neat, very well-equipped kitchen. Upstairs to the 2 bedrooms; 1 king-size double (which can also serve as a twin) and 1 double bedroom. Both bedrooms are beautifully presented in a calming shade. Modern house bathroom with shower over bath. Location A holiday cottage in Near Sawrey places you at the heart of the Lakes and close to Moss Eccles Tarn and tranquil Esthwaite Water (fictional home of Beatrix Potter's Jeremy Fisher!) which lies between Near Sawrey and Hawkshead village. Keen walkers will be brilliantly placed to reach the starting points of many of the Lake District's famous walks, and those looking for a manageable stroll in attractive surroundings will find many to choose from nearby. Nearby Hawkshead village is enchanting with its car-free cobbled streets, its air of history - fascinating historic attractions include the Hawkshead Grammar School museum (a real step back in time) and the former home of Beatrix Potter, open to the public at Hill Top. But the village is also your bolt hole for shops and facilities - stock up the kitchen with tasty local produce at the Honeypot delicatessen, and sample a few of the excellent eateries in the village. Another nearby must-see Lakeland village is Ambleside, a popular Lake District self-catering location for its friendly, lively centre and its position on the shores of Lake Windermere.  …see more
