    Dell Cottage is as attractive as the location it sits in. A traditional terraced cottage with views over the surrounding countryside, it is set in the heart of the Lake District National Park. The unspoilt hamlet of Far Sawrey was once home to Beatrix Potter, and a number of sites in the village were used in her books.
    The cosy layout of the cottage is set over three floors, with a newly refurbished shower room for 2018. The kitchen/dining room found on the ground floor has plenty of space to serve a delicious meal or to sit round the dining table and enjoy good conversations. On the first floor, you can choose from the delightful living room with its roaring wood burner, or the light and airy sitting room, with a bright picture window taking in the views.
    The two double bedrooms can be found on the top of floor of the cottage and one can be comfortably converted into a twin room. Outside, parking for two cars can be found adjacent to the delightful sitting-out area, with a chiminea to warm those long summer nights.
    Moss Eccles Tarn is an enjoyable walk from Far Sawrey. It was here that Beatrix Potter spent many an hour fishing from a rowing boat that can now be seen at the Steamboat Museum at Windermere. It is thought that the water lilies on Moss Eccles inspired the story of Jeremy Fisher.
    Bowness Ferry connects the road through Far Sawrey with Bowness-on-Windermere. At nearby Claife Heights is Claife Station, built in the 1790s, a viewpoint where visitors can look at Lake Windermere. For the last stop on any walk, try the local dog-friendly inn, which can be found just across the road from Dell Cottage, stocked with fine traditional ales and locally sourced food, you really don’t have to worry about the walk home either! Beach 23 miles. Shop and restaurant 2¾ miles, pub 50 yards.

    "Fabulous cosy cottage full of character we had a wonderful holiday ideal area for walking in the country side the locals were very friendly people"
    Mr H ‐ 30 Jul 2019
    "Nice cottage overall. We only stayed for a long weekend but found it very pleasant for 3 people. With it being over three floors you need to not mind stairs! It has all the facilities you would need including two sitting rooms.Regards its location across from the local pub The Cuckoo Brow Inn (very nice place and reasonably priced) there are no issues but bear in mind they are always busy and you need to book well in advance for dinner - we had to give 2 days notice!"
    Linda ‐ 26 Jun 2019
    "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Dell Cottage. Stunning walks from the property. The cottage is comfortable, spacious and well equipped."
    Philippa ‐ 8 Jun 2019
    "A lovely comfortable clean cottage. Well equipped with dishwasher and washing machine. Modern shower room downstairs. Comfortable beds. A pub across the road serves lovely food. Good location for the southern lakes. Milkman will deliver daily. The wine, milk, tea and coffee on arrival was a lovely touch. Would definateley recommend Dell Cottage."

    Kate ‐ 11 Mar 2019
    "Lovely cosy cottage, spotlesslt clean. Appreciated the welcome pack on arrival and my teenage son was delighted by excellent Wi-Fi signal. It was nice to be away from the crowds but within easy reach of windermere via ferry. Some beautiful walks from the door."
    Ann ‐ 24 Feb 2019
    "Dell Cottage is a wonderful place- quiet and warm. It fitted our requirements very well including a small dog. The welcome bottle of wine and pack of biscuits were well received. The pub is only a short walk away and served good food on the nights we did not want to cook. We thoroughly recommend the cottage and will be back."
    Richard ‐ 21 Feb 2019
    "Nice peaceful cottage in a village with easy access to most lakes, walks and places of interest. Great place to stay"
    Amanda ‐ 2 Jan 2019
    "A perfect cottage to have a wonderful break, the cottage is very well equipped in a lovely area for peace and tranquility, though also giving access to the sites and tourist areas of the lakes."
    Chris ‐ 20 Nov 2018
    "We had such a nice break here, 7 nights in total and it went very quick!! Quirky, cosy, comfy, and nice and homely. Wi-fi is excellent throwing out 40meg+. Parking is good for two cars behind the cottage, but a little tight getting in as the road is narrow but do-able.Claire the owner gets 10/10 for being on hand for absolutely anything, and went above and beyond for us!"
