Ees Wyke is an elegant and comfortable Georgian country house set on high ground in Near Sawrey, the home of Beatrix Potter, that nestles in the peaceful Vale of Esthwaite. Most rooms have stunning views across Esthwaite Water and the fells beyond including the Langdale Pikes, Coniston Old Man and the fells and woodland of Grizedale Forest. This is, and we are biased, the best side of Lake Windermere! There are many walks from the house from easy to slightly more challenging - Moss Eccles Tarn, Wray, Caiffe Heights and Latterbarrow to name a few.
It is an ideal location from which to walk or tour the Lake District.
