  • "The lodge is fully equipped, very clean and in a beautiful location."

    Ideal for walking to Grizedale or down to the lake. It's about a 15 minute walk to Hawkshead village too, local shops and a few pubs. Will definitely book again.

  • "We had a great stay at the lodge."

    It was very clean and had everything we needed. The location was perfect as we could do a number of walks from the door - really nice not to have to drive anywhere. It was lovely to come back to somewhere so comfortable and warm afterwards.

The property

Hawkshead 0.9 miles.

Settled in the tranquil landscape of Hawkshead, Cumbria, Rivendell Lodge is a contemporary wooden lodge situated in a prime location for exploring the Lake District with your friends and family.

Park off-road and make your way up the wooden steps, first being met with three bedrooms as you enter the property, beginning with a king-size with a Smart TV and a contemporary en-suite.

There is also the option of a homely double, also with a TV, and a twin, ideal for children both serviced by a lovely bathroom with tasteful grey tiles, great for relaxing amongst the bubbles after a long day of exploring the local area.

The sitting area is simply fantastic, with numerous floor-to-ceiling windows and patio doors allowing in ample light to create an airy ambience.

Stylish furniture can be seen throughout, along with a well-fitted kitchen ideal for cooking up a storm, enjoy the fruits of your labour at the dining table with views of the surrounding park before settling down on the leather sofas with a glass of your favourite beverage.

Savour the last of the evening on the decking, reachable via the patio doors, and take in the fresh air, whilst a wooden gate encloses this space, allowing your four-legged family member to relax beside you.

Rivendell Lodge rests beside Esthwaite Water and the property has great views of this from the living room and the decking, an ideal spot for a scenic walk amongst the wildlife, and a little further from the property you will be able to stock up on essentials or enjoy a family meal out in the heart of Hawkshead village.

Hawkshead houses an array of picturesque 17th century houses, and was once home to several famous residents, including William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.

The history of the town can be further explored at the National Trust Beatrix Potter Gallery.

Within easy reach of the property are many great locations, including Ambleside, where you can explore the quaint village and array of independent shops, embark on a hike through the stunning landscape or head over to Windermere, where boat cruises, watersports and even wild swimming are a must!

For a day spent beside the seaside head over to Beach Wood, Arnside or Silverdale, or visit the fantastic aquarium at Newby Bridge.

Beautiful walks through Claife Heights, Cathedral Cave and Latterbarrow immerse you in your surroundings, or you can enjoy a picnic at Holehird Gardens.

Animal lovers will be delighted by the opportunity to visit South Lakes Safari Zoo and see what intriguing creatures can be discovered.

With so many attractions in the local area, enjoy a family holiday to remember with a stay at the fantastic Rivendell Lodge.

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.
