Set between the town of Hawkshead and the head of Lake Windermere, the tiny village of Near Sawrey was home to one of the Lake District’s most famous residents. Our selection of holiday cottages in and around Near Sawrey put you right on the doorstep of Beatrix Potter’s home, Hill Top. Owned and run by the National Trust, this magical dwelling is an absolute must-visit whether or not you’re a fan of Peter Rabbit and his friends.
Literary legends notwithstanding, this is a delightful location for a holiday in the Lake District. Cyclists and walkers alike will delight in the picturesque scenery of the national park. There is a trail linking the village to the ferry which can take you across to Windermere, where you can hire boats and enjoy a more bustling atmosphere. On your way back to your holiday cottage, pop into the charming Tower Bank pub in Near Sawrey for a nightcap!
