  • "The cottage is delightful and we had a lovely stay."

    It is prettily decorated and comfortable with all needs catered for. It's also in a great, central, location. We would recommend it to anyone. However, a couple of little niggles, if sorted, would make it perfect. The french doors into the little front garden didn't open (key didn't work) so we were unable to sit there which was a shame. And the front door snib didn't work so we had to be careful not to lock ourselves out! Also, the cooker and hob took a bit of working out so up to date info on their use would be great. Other than that, it's a gem!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have passed on all your comments. We hope to welcome you again soon. The owner relations team - Lakelovers Property Owner

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.
