Lovely Hotel
We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Sawrey House. All the staff were very friendly and efficient. We eat there each evening and the food was always tasty and nicely presented. Very close to the Windermere ferry which we used a couple of times.

Anniversary trip
Attentive friendly staff, excellent food, good selection of drinks at the bar. Fantastic setting on the quieter side of Lake Windermere. Bed was a bit too firm for me but I've been nowhere that the bed is the same as mine at home. We will be back
