Just a few hundred yards from Beatrix Potter's former home, Stoney Croft is nestled in the peaceful village of Near Sawrey just outside Hawkshead village. Found along a quiet lane leading to Moss Eccles Tarn, Stoney Croft Cottage has a picture postcard setting that's guaranteed to inspire. Walks abound in all directions, the National Trust owned Tower Bank Arms is only a stone's throw away, and the cottage itself is a soothing retreat. Tastefully modernised to 4 star standards, the interior is homely, enjoys a spacious living room and separate dining area, and opens out to a serene sun deck. Despite the secluded feel, Hawkshead village remains close by and the car-ferry crossing over Lake Windermere to Bowness is minutes away.

Accommodation in detail
Private parking for 1 car.
Enter into the cosy yet contemporary lounge with wooden floor, deep-cushioned leather sofas and open fire. Separate, stylish dining room with access to the decked sun terrace. Neat, very well-equipped kitchen. Upstairs to the 2 bedrooms; 1 king-size double (which can also serve as a twin) and 1 double bedroom. Both bedrooms are beautifully presented in calming shade. Modern house bathroom with shower over bath.

A holiday cottage in Near Sawrey places you at the heart of the Lakes and close to Moss Eccles Tarn and tranquil Esthwaite Water (fictional home of Beatrix Potter's Jeremy Fisher!) which lies between Near Sawrey and Hawkshead village. Keen walkers will be brilliantly placed to reach the starting points of many of the Lake District's famous walks, and those looking for a manageable stroll in attractive surroundings will find many to choose from nearby.

Nearby Hawkshead village is enchanting with its car-free cobbled streets, its air of history - fascinating historic attractions include the Hawkshead Grammar School museum (a real step back in time) and the former home of Beatrix Potter, open to the public at Hill Top. But the village is also your bolt hole for shops and facilities - stock up the kitchen with tasty local produce at the Honeypot delicatessen, and sample a few of the excellent eateries in the village.

Another nearby must-see Lakeland village is Ambleside, another popular Lake District self-catering location for its friendly, lively centre and its location on the shores of Lake Windermere.

Please exit the M6 at Junction 36 and follow the A591 to the Lake District. You will pass by Kendal and need to follow the signs for Windermere/Ambleside. After around 10 miles you will reach Windermere village, take the first left turning off the A591 just after The Windermere Hotel and you will pass the Tourist Information Centre on your left. Continue through Windermere Village for a further mile and a half into Bowness. Passing the lake on your right, continue straight along this road, away from the village and lake. Take the next road on your right signposted Hawkshead via Ferry. At the end of this road take the ferry across the lake and on the other side follow the road along for about 2 miles to Near Sawrey, passing The Sawrey Hotel on your right. At Near Sawrey, pass Hill Top (home of Beatrix Potter) and then the Tower Bank Arms on your left. Just after this pub turn right onto a narrow lane called Stoney Lane. Stoney Croft is on the right near the end of the row. There is a parking space directly in front of the property.
