Bed & Breakfast and Luxury Self Catering Cottages
Beechmount Country House is located at Near Sawrey, near Hawkshead, Cumbria and provides bed and breakfast and luxury self catering accommodation in a lovely part of the English Lake District. Beechmount has been awarded an Enjoy England 5-Star Gold Award for its bed & breakfast accommodation and the Coach House self catering cottage has been awarded a 4-Star Gold Award.
Beechmount is a turn of the century built home that was planned and designed to maximise the views of Esthwaite Water and the surrounding fells and valley. Views extend as far as the Langdale Pikes and that give a real feel of the Lakeland landscape that surrounds this beautiful house. The design incorporates the full use of natural light in every room. This enhances even further the ambience of the arts and crafts era in which the house was designed.
The property has recently been refurbished to provide bed & breakfast and self catering accommodation to the highest standards of luxury by Denise and Garry Schofield whose previous experience in holiday letting has proved invaluable.
Beechmount is set in beautiful landscaped gardens designed by the famous Lakeland gardener Thomas Mawson, there are many places for visitors to sit and enjoy the views whatever the season.
A summerhouse, recently introduced at Beechmount, looks as though it has been here for years. It is lovely and relaxing in the summer months and warm and cosy come autumn and winter.
Beechmount is located between the picturesque village of Hawkshead and Bowness on the ferry road (B5285) on the edge of the village of Near Sawrey, the hamlet made famous as the home of Beatrix Potter. Hill Top, the Tower Bank Arms public house and other aspects of the village are featured in many of Beatrix Potter’s works. Indeed the house was leased for a year, in 1915, by Miss Potter for use by her mother.
For walkers there are many low level walks that lead to some of the less populated areas of the Lakeland fells with most leading to the larger village of Hawkshead that boasts at least four good pubs that provide food.
