This superb detached bungalow enjoys a sleepy rural setting in the hamlet of Near Sawrey, between Hawkshead village and the western shores of Lake Windermere. Both are only a couple of miles away. As the name suggests, you'll enjoy picturesque outlook over open meadows towards the renowned Tower Bank Arms country pub, and also Beatrix Potter's former home at Hill Top. Idyllic Esthwaite Water is close by, and walks begin in every direction from your doorstep. The accommodation itself is spacious, contemporary but homely; luxurious furnishings, woodburning stove, large dining table and excellent modern kitchen. The sleeping arrangements are ideal for two couples, family or friends - 2 delightful double bedrooms and additional cosy twin.

A very comfortable base in one of the Lake District's most scenic locations.

This superb self-catering property in Near Sawrey provides an excellent base for walking in the Lake District, exploring the magic of Beatrix Potter's former home and also visiting other popular Lake District holiday destinations. Hawkshead village is a couple of miles away, Ambleside only slightly further, and bustling Bowness is easily reached via the car-ferry crossing over Windermere (just 2 miles away from Near Sawrey).

Beatrix Potter lived in Near Sawrey at Hill Top, now owned by the National Trust and open for the public to explore. The adjacent Tower Bank Arms is a magical Lakeland country pub, with flagged stone floors and roaring open fire - quite a local! The pub even featured in Beatrix Potter's 'Tales of Jemima Puddleduck'.

In additional to the endless choice of walking routes, right from your door, Near Sawrey is close to Grizedale Forest. The forest is a must for family days out, with walking paths, cycle tracks and enchanting sculpture trails to explore. Don't forget that there are many family attractions in Bowness, as well as the Windermere Golf Club. Near Sawrey is close to Esthwaite Water, a tranquil little tarn, known as one of England's finest trout fishing lakes, also offering pike fishing, coarse fishing and roach fishing for all ages at Esthwaite Water Trout Fishery.

The Cumbria/Lake District

The Lake District is a place like no other. No other region in the world is so packed with such varied and stunning scenery in such as small area– and it's all on your doorstep with easy access by car or rail. The choice of outdoor activities is endless with some of the best walks, climbs and bike rides in the world, beautiful lakes for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing or just a cruise one of several ferry services. The National Park itself encompasses soaring mountains, native woodland (you might see a red squirrel!), lush meadows and of course the many famous lakes themselves. Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Ruskin and many more have been inspired by the Lake District and made their homes here. The homes are still here and open to visit and they too are surrounded by majestic mountain panoramas. There also some surprises – kids will love attractions such as the giant i-max screen at Rheged Visitor Centre, Go Ape aerial activities in Grizedale Forest and The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness. And where better to stay than a classic Lakeland Cottage. Lakelovers have over 400 properties in prime locations within the heart of the Lakes and we specialise in hand-picked properties that we know you'll love. Whether you want a grand property for a family gathering or a cosy bolt hole for two we can't wait to show you what we have for you to choose from. We know The Lakes inside out and we are just a click of a mouse or a phone call away.

"Great place to stay. Clean house, well stocked kitchen, good location."

Meadowside is a clean house. Good facilities. Well stocked kitchen. We had one problem - no phone signal and no internet so made it hard to plan trips etc.Would recommend it.… More
