Picture an imposing Victorian built former police station and court house just off the centre of Hawkshead village, bring in a creative architect to redesign the building and a local craftsman builder to complete the imaginative conversions and the end result is something a little bit unusual. Fair Cop is a delightful ground floor cottage for two, part of which has been made from the original police cells!
Hawkshead village makes an excellent base for your Lakeland holiday in any season - the car free village centre with its character buildings, pretty shops, good pubs and places to eat is one of the best loved spots in the National Park. There are lovely walks from the door, and further afield Grizedale Forest and around Tarn Hows, plus plenty of opportunities for touring or relaxing throughout the area.
Accommodation: Front door into entrance hall with room to hang your outdoor gear. The stylish sitting/dining room retains the original thick walls, vaulted brick ceilings and stone floors now enhanced by French windows and a multi-fuel burning stove (TV, DVD, CD, iPod/IPhone dock and free Wi-Fi). Two open doorways lead through to the fitted kitchen.
There is one bedroom with king-size bed and a bathroom (bath with shower over, basin and wc). Furnishings throughout are stylish and comfortable - including a circular glass and metal dining table. Gas central heating and hot water. Some of the floors are of polished wood whilst the original stone floor in the sitting room has rugs.
Outside: French windows open onto the rear courtyard from where you can see beyond the village to the hills including Fairfield in the distance. Parking for one car in a named parking space. Short level walk to village centre approx 200 yards.
