Sawrey and Far Sawrey are two neighbouring villages in the Furness area of Cumbria.  The two are famous for their association with Beatrix Potter where she lived at Hill Top Farm in Near Sawrey.  They are located in the Lake District between the town of Hawkshead and the lake of Windermere. The two lie on the B5285, which runs from Hawkshead to the Windermere Ferry, a car ferry across Windermere one mile to the east of the villages.
