An elegant and comfortable Georgian country house hotel in Hawkshead, set on high ground and overlooking Esthwaite Water. Ees Wyke offers luxury guest house accommodation and an AA rosette-awarded restaurant in Near Sawrey, Hawkshead, Ambleside, in the centre of the Lake District. Once a holiday home of Beatrix Potter, the guest house is just a short walk away from Hill Top, where she made her home and wrote many of her Peter Rabbit books. The bedrooms, lounge and restaurant have stunning views across the lake of some of the best-known fells in the Lake District, including Coniston Old Man and the Langdale Pikes, as well as the extensive woodland of Grizedale Forest. Many excellent walks are accessible from the house, from the easy and relaxing to the slightly more challenging; close to Hawkshead, Ambleside and the Windermere Ferry, our guest house accommodation is an ideal location from which to tour the Lake District.

The restaurant and guest house accommodation at Ees Wyke Country House Hotel are recommended by the Good Food Guide, Good Hotel Guide and Automobile Association.
