Cuckoo Brow Inn B&B Accommodation located near to Hawkshead, Ambleside and Lake

Situated in the heart of the quiet village of the Far Sawrey, just a ¾ mile pleasant stroll to the National Trust home of Beatrix Potter, our Lake District Inn welcomes you to come and sit by the fire. Situated at the top of the hill in between Lake Windermere and Hawkshead Village, surrounded by beautiful scenery, popular walking and cycling trails and of course the countryside which Beatrix Potter drew her inspiration from. We are a classic, yet contemporary Lake District Bed & Breakfast, which has recently been renovated and lovingly restored to its former glory. We now have 14 beautiful en-suite bedrooms, which are a selection of superking size, family and twin rooms, all rooms have power showers, 32” flat screen TVs, tea and coffee facilities and everything you would want from Lake District B&B.

We are passionate about the Lakes, and strive to produce a local, sourcing as much produce as possible from the from the bountiful area in which we sit, be that the Real Ales, the game for our Steak & Flakebridge Cheese Pie or the sausages for our Cumbrian Breakfast which of course no true Lake District B&B would be without.

We would like to welcome all to our little Inn, which offers dog friendly accommodation for those wishing to bring their dog away for a holiday in the Lakes. Whether you are popping in for a pint or coming to stay in the Lake District Bed & Breakfast, our doors are open and our fires are on.


The Cuckoo Brow Inn offers 14 excellent en-suite accommodation rooms; all our rooms have been completely refurbished. We have brought the old Inn right up-to scratch with powerful showers, deep baths, flat screen TVs and super king-size beds.

All rooms include: Daily Room Service, Hairdryer, Linen and Towels, Telephone, Television, Tea/Coffee Maker and FREE WiFi access.

We have rooms for the family with bunk beds for children, rooms with twin beds and superior rooms with beautiful freestanding roll top baths. Dogs are welcome to stay* and are allowed in all public areas provided they are well behaved and on the lead. Tea and Coffee facilities are available in each room.

Breakfast is included in your stay; we offer a buffet of cereals, pastries, fresh fruit, juices and yoghurts followed by a cooked breakfast of your choice, ranging from a full hearty Cumbrian breakfast or a lighter fluffy pancakes.

Bar & Dining

Real Ales, Good Food & Log Fires this is what we offer our guests when they come in to visit us. All are welcome for a pint, for a snack or for a meal.

Our ales are sourced from local breweries, we use the famous Coniston Brewery to give our guests the ever popular Coniston Blue Bird, we have the award winning Loweswater Gold supplied from Cumbrian Legendary Ales just across the water in Hawkshead and we regularly change our third pump for other local brewers.

Our food is hearty and very tasty, food to fill you up after a hard day of walking on the Lake District Fells. We can cater for groups out for a days walking or visiting Beatrix Potters Hill Top Farm, just give us a call and we can design a menu to suit your dietary requirements & budget. We supply from local Lake District producers and change our menu with the seasons. A warm welcome is always to be had, so pull up a chair next to the central log burning stove and enjoy relaxing in our bar.

The Stables are open for guests who want to enjoy the historical aspect of the Inn, cosy stalls and wood beams offer a little haven for a quiet pint or coffee. Games are available down here for all the family.

The length of our walking guides is given in miles and rounded to the nearest full mile (whole number) for simplicity. For short walks (of less than 2 miles) or walks that have a length that ends in .5, a more accurate walk length may be given in the first section of the walk introduction. For example, the Length in the header may be listed as 6 miles, and the introduction may confirm that the exact length of the walk is 5.5 miles. The walk length is calculated from the GPS file that was created by the walk author GPS tracking the walk whilst walking, using the iFootpath App GPS Tracker, meaning it is very accurate. Our bespoke tracker is particularly detailed and plots a walkers position about every 10 seconds. The tracker is calibrated to match two other reputable map and walking sources, Ordnance Survey and Nike. As with all standardised walk and map lengths, the distance does not take account of hills and slopes, just the distance you would measure using a piece of string on a flat map version of the terrain, so hilly walks will feel longer than stated. If you track the route using another GPS App or Tracker App or Fitness Device, you can expect the distance you record to be different due to different calibrations. This is particularly true of those Apps and devices that count your motion and steps – these can only guess the distance you have travelled with each step and so are much less accurate.

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult the terrain is that you will encounter along the way. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. It takes into account things like hills, path surfaces and obstacles (like stiles, gates, steps and rock scrambles). An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 Boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 Boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles that require scrambling with your hands. Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.

NOTE: Do be aware that the level of stamina required for any walk will vary depending on both the walk length and the difficulty grade - you should only walk within your limits.
