About Guy & Jane Brannan
Guy and Jane bought the property in 2007. We love Lakefield and the village but work in London so like to make the property available for others to enjoy-and to benefit the local community.

Why Guy & Jane Brannan chose Near Sawrey
We feel Lakefield is special because it is tucked away ,yet convenient and has wonderful lake and mountain views. It has a number of easy walks straight from the door but is also not far from some spectacular climbs. It is also a fairly easy drive to visit places associated with significant literary figures-good for wet weather! We love watching the view as it changes with the weather even when Coniston Old Man disappears behind the mist. Also watching the many birds & hearing the cows, sheep and geese. A wide range of outdoor activities are available in Grizedale Forest and on Windermere and Coniston, all of which are within 20 minutes' drive.
What makes this house unique
Lakefield House is very spacious and has simply stunning views enjoyed through picture windows. Suitable for 10 people (or 12 if booked with the adjacent Lakefield Cottage), it offer wonderfully comfortable accommodation for larger parties. It is suituated in private grounds on the edge of the small but historic village of Near Sawrey just a few minutes walk from the local pub which featured in Beatrix Potter's books. Lakefield can be reached from junction 36 of the M6 by travelling via Newby Bridge without having to endure the bottleneck from Windermere to Ambleside. The milkman calls daily and can deliver a wide range of items & the convenience of shops in nearby, picturesque Hawkshead makes it easy to pick up items you may have forgotten.
