Hawkshead, Ambleside, Lake District, Cumbria, England
The Rockery Suite is one of six tastefully appointed apartments in an impressive building called Sawrey Knotts in the village of Far Sawrey, three miles from Hawkshead, in the English Lake District.

Sawrey Knotts is right in the heart of Beatrix Potter country, and within walking distance of the writer's famous home and museum at nearby Near Sawrey.

Sawrey Knotts retains the feel of a country house with the main front door opening into a large entrance hall with winding staircase.

The house is built into the rocky hillside with the cosy one bedroom Rockery Suite tucked away at the rear of the building, looking up towards the rockery garden and the old walled terraced garden, so we should emphasize that there are no "long" views.

The elegant lounge features an original open fireplace. Logs are provided free-of-charge t...

The apartment it's self was lovely everything you could wish for. The down side was the sitting room was very dark unlike the bedroom. Even the lights did not make much improvement. The very small outside seating area was perched almost a metre high on a small ledge accessed by some slate steps. I did not feel comfortable sitting up...

We absolutely loved the Rockery Suite at Sawrey Notts with its lovely original sitting room including an impressive fire place, really comfortable bed room, excellent shower room and very well equipped kitchen. We stayed there with our little lurcher and the local pub (which really is within a few mins walk) is extremely dog friendly, with really nice food and...

Thankyou so much Tony & Cheryl for your very kind review - much appreciated. Glad you and your lurcher enjoyed our cosy apartment and very convenient pub! Yes, our cleaner has recently mentioned the back step - I am glad you reminded me - I shall ask one of our fine team of builders to give it some attention. Please...

..what a great find ! I holiday in the lake district once a year and stumbled across the rockery suite as I couldn't find anything suitable / available in my usual preferred area of Elterwater / Chapel Stile ... I was not disappointed . A very warm & cosy apartment . Very well equipped. A stunning location with fantastic views...

Many thanks for your kind review Anthony - we are very pleased that you were so comfortable. The deer moment sounds like a scene out of a movie! We look forward to your return. Kind Regards, Malcolm & Kate

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Please note that we prefer to let The Rockery Suite for full weeks during high and mid season, so at these times of year short breaks will only be available a week or so in advance.

Please also note that the nightly charge varies between £53 - £87 depending on when and for how long you wish to book the apartment.

We let The Rockery Suite through an excellent Ambleside-based agency called Heart Of The Lakes (H.O.T.L.) They charge a £23 booking fee, so they add this on to any bookings made through them. H.O.T.L. also hold an up-to-date bookings calendar. So you can check availability either on this FlipKey website or via H.O.T.L. H.O.T.L's contact details for The Rockery Suite are +44 15394 32321 and: http://www.heartofthelakes.co.uk/the_rockery_suite_e.html

You can also contact us directly of course. We will be pleased to help with any enquiries.

About the neighbourhood
In the English Lake District. In the village of Far Sawrey, 1 mile up the hill to the west side of Lake Windermere from the Bowness-on-Windermere chain ferry, 3 miles to the east of Hawkshead and 7 miles to the south of Ambleside. So you will need a car.

PLEASE NOTE: The map on this website does not show the location of our country house Sawrey Knotts, but of the nearest sizable village - Hawkshead - 3 miles away. This is because few visitors to FlipKey will have heard of our small village of Far Sawrey. You/they are therefore more likely to be searching for properties in or near Hawkshead - a more familiar name. If you conduct your own Google search ( http://maps.google.co.uk/ ) using Sawrey Knotts' postcode LA22 0LG you will see its exact location in the village of Far...
