Why We Love This Hotel

  • This 18th–century inn is a short walk from Beatrix Potter's cottage, the Windermere ferry, and hiking and mountain bike trails
  • The bar serves hearty, locally sourced food and local ale. Dogs are welcome
  • There are 14 rooms, all with free Wi-Fi; some have bunk beds or rolltop baths


The Cuckoo Brow Inn, in the quiet village of Far Sawrey on the western side of Lake Windermere, has been welcoming travellers since 1700. It's had a bit of an update since, but still projects a homely atmosphere, with hearty pub grub and roaring log fires.

Beatrix Potter's cottage, Hill Top, is less than a mile away, and the surrounding area has excellent hiking and mountain bike trails. The Claife Viewing Station, 20 minutes' walk away, is also worth a visit for views over Windermere. The Windermere ferry lands nearby, with a regular service to Bowness. The town of Ambleside is a 30-minute drive away.

Walkers, cyclists, and families with dogs and children are all welcome at the inn. The wood-panelled bar serves hearty homemade fare; produce is sourced within a 20-mile radius as much as possible and there are local beers on tap.

Most of the 14 rooms are in an annexe attached to the main pub and are "simple but smartly, country-style", says The Daily Telegraph. All come with free Wi-Fi and power showers. There are good options for families too, with bunk and twin beds available. Superior rooms have a freestanding roll-top bath. Breakfast is included, and consists of a continental buffet followed by a cooked breakfast made to order.
