    “The cottage is well equipped and the lounge and kitchen are particularly good.”

    It is very well located and the parking spot behind is very useful. The Christmas decorations were appreciated. Our only issue, considering that we rented the cottage in December, was with the heating. The lounge was lovely and cosy, but with the thermostat being in that room, the rest of the house struggled to get warm. It was particularly difficult to get the top, master bedroom warm as there was a lot of heat loss into the roof space. A note about the heater under the oven would have been useful as initially we didn't think that it was working as it didn't come on immediately.

About the location


Ambleside 4 miles; Kendal 24 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.
