  • "We had a fantastic 4 day stay as a family of 5 at the historical Ann Tysons house."

    Located on Wordsworth Street in the beautiful village of Hawkshead. The house was gorgeous, and so spacious but cosy with a lovely log fire. I loved all the quirky features and furnishings along with beautiful original features. Everything you could ever need was available! Even big umbrellas which came in handy. All we needed to take was our toiletries/clothes! I’ve never stayed anywhere with so many things available. The bedrooms were spacious with 2 having en suites and comfortable beds. The owner left us a complimentary bottle of wine, thank you. The village is stunning with beautiful quaint shops, tearooms and pubs. The owner is lovely and helpful with any queries you have. We all had an amazing stay and hope to return when the weather gets warmer.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your lovely review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. I do hope you and your family come back to stay again in the future. Kind regards, Johnny & Alda Walton. Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved the cottage and it's location in Hawkshead."

    It was so lovely to arrive with the fire already lit. It was very much home from home. We really appreciated the washing machine, tumble dryer and airer as we had lots of wet weather! The kitchen looks like it has been recently refurbished and is well equipped. All in all, it was a fantastic break away in the Lake District.

The property

Ann Tysons House, a delightful cottage steep in local history rests in the heart of Hawkshead, Cumbria, well-positioned within the Lake District National Park.

This three-bedroom cottage oozes character and charm, with original beamed ceilings, artex walls, and antique furniture found throughout, whilst mixed with contemporary appliances, offering a wonderful base for a family or group of six friends, looking to enjoy the Lakes.

Park up off-road and travel on foot down the delightful, cobbled streets, with the cottage resting in a pretty, yet historic part of the village.

Step indoors and be greeted by the welcoming living/dining room, with plenty of seating space upon the leather sofas, a dining table for six guests, and a lovely woodburning stove on offer, enveloped by an original, exposed fireplace; with local artwork dotted throughout, travel back in time to the property’s origins.

The kitchen/diner offers a sleek, well-equipped space to prepare meals and enjoy brunch, whilst the rear patio provides a private and enclosed area to dine alfresco in the Cumbria air; be sure to enjoy a fresh morning coffee or a late-night tipple from this space.

When the time comes to retire to your three bedrooms, you'll find a super-king-size with en-suite walk-in shower, a double with en-suite walk-in shower, and a twin with basin, all featuring dark, wooden furniture and traditional interiors, the large bed in bedroom one originally belonged to John Ruskin and was purchased by the owners family in 1931 and the item hanging above the staircase was a push chair made for the owners great grandchildren; each bedroom is fitted with a TV, allowing you to catch up on your favourite shows at the end of a long day.

Lastly, a shower room with walk-in shower, and a cloakroom/utility with washing machine and tumble dryer complete this wonderful home.

Begin your stay by exploring the quaint village of Hawkshead; admire the stunning scenery and unique architecture, from the 14th-century Church of St. Michael and All Angels to the Hawkshead Grammar School, the first of its kind in the country.

Sample the local delicacies at one of the traditional pubs and boutiques or treat yourself to a sweet treat at one of the unique cafes.

Then, make your way towards Ambleside where you can enjoy a variety of activities, from walking and cycling routes, to boat rides and shopping.

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.
