Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • No pets allowed
  • Car advised

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.

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.
