Lake for Sale

Lake for Sale

An interesting story in the news this week is that Esthwaite Water at Near Sawrey has been put up for sale on EBay! The reason for the sale is the owner – Nigel Woodhouse is fast approaching retirement age and is looking out for someone to take over the reins of the 280-acre lake. The lake is situated quite close to Hawkshead and is the home of Jeremy Fisher – the gentleman frog- who is one of Beatrix Potter’s most popular characters. The lake is also mentioned by poet William Wordsworth in his ‘Prelude’.
