Little Ees Wyke
Little Ees Wyke is built in the garden of one of Beatrix Potters' former holiday homes, where she whiled away the hours drawing the gardens and the beautiful views of Esthwaite water, Grizedale Forest and Coniston Old Man. Little Ees Wyke has two holiday properties, Esthwaite Muse and Little Esthwaite Cottage - perfect for a stay in the Lakes.
Esthwaite Muse - this magical hideaway commands simply breathtaking panoramic views over Esthwaite Water and the dramatic Lakeland mountains within this tranquil and picturesque setting. If searching for a romantic retreat with view to remain with you long after you leave, we think Esthwaite Muse is the perfect choice.
Forming the first floor of this wonderful Lakeland residence with walls of picture glass to gaze out at the ever changing views, Miss Potter herself wrote "Esthwaite Water is the most beautiful of lakes," and Muse is to ponder thought aptly named as that view certainly makes you dream. Cascading with light this sophisticated apartment provides to en-suite bedrooms with the folding picture windows and the lounge too has more superb folding glass. More
Little Esthwaite Cottage - This enchanting romantic hideaway commands breathtaking views over Esthwaite water, set deep in Miss Potter's 'picture postcard' country, providing contemporary country cottage life all on one level.

The lounge is relaxing with warming woodburning stove and picture window glass doors lead out onto the decked patio, ideal for al-fresco life.
