    “Betty's Mews was a delightful ...”

    Betty's Mews was a delightful downstairs cottage apartment and ideal for two older (or younger) people. It was equipped to a high standard, spotless and very comfortable. All local amenities including shops and eating places were very close by and, although on the road, it was not noisy if the windows were closed. There was a little awareness of people in Betty's Loft, the apartment upstairs, but not enough to be annoying or intrusive. The private parking behind the property in King's Yard ...

    Betty's Mews was a delightful downstairs cottage apartment and ideal for two older (or younger) people. It was equipped to a high standard, spotless and very comfortable. All local amenities including shops and eating places were very close by and, although on the road, it was not noisy if the windows were closed. There was a little awareness of people in Betty's Loft, the apartment upstairs, but not enough to be annoying or intrusive. The private parking behind the property in King's Yard was useful but meant carrying cases round to the front down a narrow path. Not too good if a person was disabled. Really only very minor points for slight improvement - the cupboard door to the cleaning equipment was very hard to open and we thought it was locked for a couple of days! It took a strong wrist and some determination to get it open! There was no long mirror in the property and no mirror close to a power point for use of any electrical equipment such as a hair drier or heated brush/straighteners etc. These are minor points and did not detract from our enjoyment or satisfaction with the property. Hawkshead is a lovely village and although popular with tourists it had a friendly, local atmosphere. It was an excellent centre for visiting other parts of the Lakes by car or bus (20 miles to Keswick) and the nearby lake of Esthwaite Water as well as the larger lakes of Windemere and Coniston Water were easily accessible. Some good walks too especially to Tarn Hows some 2 to 3 miles away and to Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's home a mile from Esthwaite Water. The information book provided was very useful for outings and for instructions for the use of equipment in the property. We can highly recommend this property and location.

About the location

HAWKSHEAD

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.
