    “This cottage is lovely, it is comfortable with good quality furnishings, it is well equipped with a lot of thought put into what the guest may need whilst there.”

    ( although the tv in the lounge could do with being upgraded to a smart tv). The garden is lovely and well kept with a great place to sit out.. in gorgeous surroundings ...

    ( although the tv in the lounge could do with being upgraded to a smart tv). The garden is lovely and well kept with a great place to sit out.. in gorgeous surroundings BUT...the biggest bugbear was the noise from the car body repair garage directly next door..the grinding and panel beating spoilt the peacefulness of the surroundings this started from 8.00am through to 7.00pm on and off. We did spend most of the days out so wasn't too bad, but if you wanted a day at "home" it would get on your nerves. This is such a shame because we absolutely loved the place but it may make us think about booking here again.

About the location


Ambleside 5.1 miles; Kendal 17.4 miles.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.
