WALKING AND ACTIVITIES
There are many walking opportunities from the property, by the lakeshore both in a south and northerly direction, or from Sawrey to Moss Eccles Tarn, and onto Claife Heights. A short drive away there are stunning walks too numerous to list, but details and maps are listed in tourist guide books. The villages nearby are Hawkshead, Coniston and of course Ambleside. Bowness and Windermere are just across the Lake via the Ferry, which is just a short drive away, or a 30-minute drive either via Ambleside or Newby Bridge. For garden lovers, the Lake District National Park has numerous country houses and magnificent gardens to visit, and as you can imagine the scenery everywhere is stunning and breathtakingly beautiful.
There are several pubs nearby, including the Cuckoo Brow Inn at Far Sawrey which is an easy walk from Lakes Boathouse, The Tower Bank Arms at Near
Sawrey, and the famous Drunken Duck at Barngates, all serving local Ales and locally sourced Cumbrian food. In addition, The Lakeside Hotel and The Swan
at Newby Bridge, are a fifteen-minute drive. Further afield, but no more than a 40-minute drive are numerous Michelin Starred restaurants.
