This picturesque part of The Lake District, much loved by Beatrix Potter and where she made her home, offers guests a chance to relax and enjoy the peacefulness and charm of one of the prettiest parts of The National Park. There are gentle walks in the area - across the fields to Near Sawrey for a visit to Beatrix Potter's home at Hill Top, or over the little path opposite the cottage to the shores of Lake Windermere about half a mile distant.
The ferry across the lake takes you easily to Bowness and there are many opportunities for exploring the quiet byways on the western side of Lake Windermere either on foot or cycle and two good pubs within walking distance. Rowan Cottage has all the ingredients of a good holiday. Hawkshead village, about two miles distant, has charming local shops, tea shops and good pubs, there are many trails to explore in Grizedale Forest and fishing on nearby Esthwaite Water.
Accommodation: Front door entrance into attractive sitting room (TV with satellite Freeview, DVD, video, CD/radio/cassette player, multi-fuel stove). Door through to the good sized, newly fitted and well-equipped dining kitchen. This light, comfortable area makes an ideal space for socializing whilst preparing meals. Enclosed rear porch ideal for storing wet weather gear. French windows opening onto the terrace and garden beyond.
The upstairs of the cottage is well planned with three bedrooms - a good sized double on the first floor with built-in furniture and washbasin and en-suite shower and wc.
