Steeped in history, The Old Sawpit is the upper floor of a traditional stone Lakeland building which lies above an original saw pit where cartwheels were made by the Elterwater Wheelwrights.
Located in the picturesque village of Elterwater, this cottage has been a long time favourite for walkers enjoying strolls along the river or taking on the challenge of more strenuous walks. Relax with a glass of wine on the iron bench, at the top of the Old Sawpit steps, watching the sheep graze on the common, or warm yourself in front of the log burning fire in the cosy lounge
There is private off-road parking available and we welcome up to two well behaved dogs.
Elterwater is a very picturesque village in the heart of Langdale with some of the best walking – we like to think this is the heart of the Lake District. Leave the car parked up for the week, and enjoy walks from your doorstep and a fantastic local pub (The Britannia Inn), or a more formal dining treat at the Eltermere Inn Hotel. The local village shop in Chapel Stile is less than a mile away and very well equipped for all your needs.
