Sawrey House Country Hotel, Ambleside
I will stay again
Lovely small country house hotel, excellent restaurant and breakfast, single room warm and cosy, excellent local walks and access to cross-lake ferry only a mile or so away. Cuckoo Brow Inn was a lovely place for a local walk and coffee retreat from the rain. Hotel is next door to Hill Top / Beatrix Potter place.

We were turned away when we arrived at 1:30pm - after a 3hr journey. We were unable to sit down in the lounge or access any hotel facilities. After paying £30 extra for a lake view, it was dark when we arrived in the room and the old windows were full of condensation in the morning. ... waste of money. Checkout was at 11am Sunday.

Comfortable, quiet and a good breakfact
Arrived at 15:00 (no problem parking then or at anytime during my stay) and was checked-in and guided to my room by 15:10. I was B&B with the "B"ed comfortable in a well decorated room and the cooked to order "B"reakfast was good. The hotel is in quiet location with a good view from the terrace

Peaceful, stylish, picturesque, great location.
This gem of a hotel is set in the delightful village of Near Sawrey next to Beatrix Potter's home, Hill Top. It is away from the hustle of the central Lakes with views over Esthwaite Water. The hotel is stylish and comfortable, the staff are very welcoming and the food is amazing. I had wood pigeon and it was cooked to perfection. Most ingredients are sourced locally, the Cumbrian sausages at breakfast were the best I've tasted. My room was freshly decorated, clean and had all you need for a relaxing stay. Well worth travelling a few more miles to get away from the hordes, but still only 20 minutes from Ambleside. Whilst the hotel is presented to a high standard and offers quality accommodation beyond its rating the welcome was genuine and relaxed. Fantastic value!
