Welcome to Ees Wyke Country House

Ees Wyke is an elegant Georgian house in Near Sawrey, a small village in the English Lake District. Once the holiday home of Beatrix Potter it is set on high ground overlooking and adjacent to Esthwaite Water. Now an elegant and personally managed guest house in our 22nd season, we offer luxury accommodation. We have won awards for our breakfasts and for many years have retained an AA rosette for dinner. We are recommended in the Good Hotel Guide. A comfortable stay is assured.

The dining room and lounge together with most bedrooms have stunning views across the Lake to the fells of Coniston Old Man, the Langdale Pikes and the extensive woodland of Grizedale Forest. This is a most tranquil place and there are many walks and strolls from the house. We are just a short walk from Hill Top Farm where Beatrix Potter made her home and wrote many of her Peter Rabbit books.

George Goodbody

Our first but definitely not last visit to this wonderful hotel. The ambience was lovely, our bedroom very comfortable, and the location absolutely stunning. Richard’s cooking was superb. Every course at dinner was beautifully presented and the flavours were wonderful. Breakfast was also excellent.
