Sawrey House is a traditional converted country house retreat set in 3 acres of sculpted gardens designed for lazy indolence. It is the quintessential English rural hideaway, built in the 1830's with slate from the local quarry and is one of the prettiest buildings in the prestine conservation hamlet of Near Sawrey.

Originally built for a Vicar who moved to the area from Cambridge to become the Headmaster of Hawkshead Grammar School, the house was designed to reflect the family home in Cambridge but with an ecclesiastical feel.


The hotel offers 10 well appointed bedrooms, including two four poster rooms, lake view rooms and classic rooms too. Our bar and lounge are open all day for residents and over-look our gardens and the lake beyond. Our restaurant serves our A la Carte & Table d'hote menus each evening from 6.30pm.

On clear days you can sit on our terrance and enjoy a cream tea or one of our fabulous wines while you take in the stunning views of this beautiful part of the Lake District. Feel free to idolly explore our gardens, watch the rabbits play on the lawns or maybe endulge in a game of croquet.

Free WiFi is available to all residents
