Round Table Cottage - Far Sawrey, Ambleside, Cumbria, The Lake District, England - Sleeps 8

Round Table Cottage

Round Table Cottage sleeps up to eight guests in five bedrooms and is ideally placed right in the heart of the Lake District National Park. With parts of the main house dating back to the 17th Century, the property has lots of character and has been owned by the same family for over forty years. Round Table Cottage offers a welcoming retreat with plenty of space for two families to relax in comfort, yet its layout lends itself well for smaller families of four.

Comfortable and well presented throughout, the cottage has lots of original character with thick walls and a log burner in the sitting room which is well endowed with beams - a cosy place to relax during the winter months. There is also plenty of outside space to relax and soak up the views when the weather is warmer.

Much loved by the family, Round Table Cottage provides a real home from home atmosphere with everything provided to ensure a relaxing stay. There is plenty of space for the whole party to relax, a laundry for drying and washing outdoor clothes, a well equipped kitchen for self-catering and comfy bedrooms for a good nights sleep (please note that bed linen and towels are not provided so you will need to bring your own).

Set on the quieter side of Lake Windermere, the many attractions of the Lake District are within easy reach. Affording lovely views, the cottage nestles in between Far Sawrey village (which has a great pub within a fifteen minute walk) and the ferry to Bowness. The pretty Cumbrian village of Hawkshead is just ten minutes by car, as is Hill Top, the house of Beatrix Potter (now run by the National Trust).

For those who enjoy walking, the Lake District offers endless opportunities starting straight from the front door with a footpath just three minutes away taking you up to the summit of Claife Heights where you can marvel at the stunning views. You can also hop on Windermere Ferry and then walk to Bowness (twenty minutes once you disembark).
