Pretty as a picture this sympathetically renovated Lakeland Cottage will surely be the venue for many happy holidays.  Syke Cottage is set on the south side of Hawkshead amid a small cluster of buildings on the road out of the village.  It is only a few minutes level walk from the village centre where you will find excellent local shopping and a variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants.  Parts of the cottage date from the early 18th century and it is known that Beatrix Potter's nurse once lived next door.  The area offers many opportunities for walking in delightful scenery - Grizedale Forest is close by and has many miles of trails and cycle ways whilst Esthwaite Water offers opportunities for fishing in well stocked waters.

We are sure you'll love Syke Cottage with its welcoming feel and a high degree of holiday comfort including well thought out stylish furnishings and personal touches ; fitted carpets to most rooms; cosy heating and lovely views from most windows over fields and to Claife Heights beyond.
