Being in heart of the beautiful Lake District with stunning views of Esthwaite Water and Grizedale Forest, few hotels boast such magnificant views of this wonderful part of Cumbria.  Next door is Hill Top Farm, once the home of Beatrix Potter, and visitors to Near sawrey cannot fail to be captivated by the village's quaint tranquility which so inspired her writings.  

Set in the sculpted gardens designed for lazy indolence, Sawrey House is the quintessential English rural hideaway.  Built in the 1830's with slate from the local quarry, it is one of the prettiest buildings in the prestine conservation hamlet of Near Sawrey.

The whole area is surrounded by National Trust land and is idylic for walking, exploring and relaxing.  The hotel is centrally situated, with the Windermere ferry only a few minutes from the house and Hawkshead, Ambleside and Coniston are only a few minutes drive away.  All in all Sawrey House is the ideal place for nature lovers and romatics alike and ourwarm and welcoming staff are here to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
