    Esthwaite Muse and Little Esthwaite - Near Sawrey - Hawksead

    You really couldn't get much close to Beatrix Potter unless you moved into Hill Top House! These two self-catering properties with jaw-dropping views are just 200 metres away from this incredible lady's former home. One of my favourite pubs, the Tower Bank Arms (which I'm sure you will recognise from the Tales of Jemima Puddle Duck) is just a few minutes walk away, too. The two properties can be booked together or independently.

    *Note Esthwaite Muse doesn't accept pets but Little Esthwaite allows 1 well behaved dog
