We are in one of the most delightful locations of the Lakes - so peaceful, yet so convenient. Scenic short drive to Sawrey, Hawkshead, Grizedale Forest etc. No smoking and no pets, for the enjoyment of all our guests. Right in the heart of Beatrix Potter country! Lots of extras, Sky TV, selection of board/kids' games, DVD, CDs etc. Perfect for family holidays all year, real log fire and oil central heating. Complimentary pass for Swan Hotel Leisure Club & Spa for duration of stay.
Activities: 2 min walk to the south westerly shores of Lake Winderemere, at Lakeside (near Newby Bridge). Lake cruisers from Lakeside go to Fell Foot Park and Bowness, then Ambleside and Sawrey.
Our lovely, spacious cottage is ideally located for walking, sailing, activity, fishing holidays or spa breaks, all of which are available within the immediate vicinity. Equally suitable for a real 'get away from it all' relaxation holiday. Perfect for families or a special break for 2.
Our cottage is situated within delightful village of Lakeside, with the Aquarium, lake cruisers, steam train, and fantastic 4* Lakeside Hotel with pub, restaurants and spa all literally across the road. There is so much to see from this truly unspoiled location. Walks from the door, eg Stott Bobbin, High & Low Dams, Finsthwaite. Short, spectacular drives to Sawrey, Hawkshead, Grizedale Forest (home to Go Ape outward bound activities, sculpture park, forest trails, Theatre in the Forest etc).
Lakeside village is home to the fantastic Lakeside Hotel, with several outstanding eating areas, including traditional pub, conservatory overlooking the lake, brasserie and more formal restaurant. Spa treatments available. Newby Bridge (less than 1 mile or catch the steam train) is home to another great hotel (with marina) serving good bar food & restaurant. Short drive to renowned gastro-pubs like The Masons Arms at Gummers How, and the now infamous Drunken Duck at Barngates. We love the Tower Bank Arms at Sawrey, just a 5 min beautiful drive. Families are most welcome practically everywhere. Farm shop on shores of unspoiled Esthwaite Water (original home of Beatrix Potter's Jeremy Fisher) 5 min drive. We are in an unspoiled location, yet ideally placed to explore the delights of the Lakes and fells - walks to suit all levels of ability and enthusiasm!
Very family friendly - all ground floor accommodation, all mod cons to ensure you have a relaxing stay. Lakeside is also home to the Lakeside to Haverthwaite steam train, and also the Aquarium of the Lakes. The lake cruisers run from Lakeside pier to Fell Foot Park and Bowness, then Ambleside and Sawrey. Famous Hawkshead 7 mile scenic drive up west side of Lake Windermere - stop at Near Sawrey, home to Beatrix Potter, on the way. Spot the red squirrel and deer in the woodland behind our cottage
