  • "Fantastic location to the village."

    Well appointed kitchen, Could do with a little more cupboard space in the kitchen to put the groceries. A shaving mirror in the bathroom. Fridge noises could be a problem when trying to watch the TV or having a conversation

  • "Enjoyed our stay and had everything we needed."

    The kitchen had enough crockery and cooking equipment should you wish to self cater ((which we didn't). Also a dishwasher. Very comfortable cottage and would stay again.

  • "A great stay at Jenny's in a wonderful location."

    Fittings and equipment and so on all very thoughtful that made a lovely stay. Lovely court yard garden out the back. I marked down comfort by 1 star because the 2 two seater settee's were great for the two of us staying but would have been a squeeze if we'd had to share. I know this happens everywhere but a summer weight duvet would have been nice - we were very hot; the beds were very comfortable. All linen was very good. I would highly recommend. Note - not a criticism just an observation for you to get on top of - the lovely shower had just a couple of little spots of black mould that I wouldn't like to see get out of hand and spoil what is an amazing shower room

  • "The cottage is ideally located for the centre of Hawkshead being a very short walk into the village."

    It is easy to find and has good parking. Inside it has 2 good size bedrooms with comfy beds, well laid out kitchen and bathroom with a good shower. The seating area is comfortable. Outside is a small enclosed courtyard that catches the afternoon/evening sun. The cottage is on a single level so if mobility is an issue this property should be ok. The upper storey is a separate property that was vacant whilst we were there. We would definitely stay there again if we revisited the village.

  • "Property is well equipped and in a fantastic location."

    It is very comfortable and was a great base. Good parking and a couple of minutes walk to village centre. There was no welcome pack so bring tea bags, milk etc It’s sold by Sykes as no pets but is actually pet friendly and welcomes dogs! Twin beds available but these were not made up and bedding not available to do this yourselves. There are no recycling facilities provided and it’s advised to put recycling in main bin but there are facilities in the local car park. The property hadn't been thoroughly cleaned but this has been raised and hopefully will be resolved for future users.

    Mr Ian GordonNov 2022

  • "Loved this property."

    Both the position of it and the facilities in it. The reason for a low mark regarding comfort is because (as an elderly couple) we both found the settees very low to the ground and difficult to get out of. Also found that front door a bit tricky to use. Maybe needs a squirt of WD40

    Hi Lynda Thank you for your feedback I will look into these issues. Property Owner

    The cottage was clean and had everything you possibly need.Yhe walks are fabulous around Hawkshead,so easy to follow.We stayed in Hawkshead 52 years ago for our honeymoon,but have visited lots of times.The only problem is getting a meal at some of the pubs,This is because of having no staff,it's ashamed for the village,and they have tried to sort things as much as possible.So once again a great stay.Sue and Tom.

  • "Lovely property, very warm and cosy."

    Very close to the centre of town and easy access to the countryside for walks. Double beds are really comfortable and a great upgrade. Only downside is the inability to dry clothes. It is rainy season, but also warm. There is no dryer in the property and we did not want to put the heating on ! There appeared to be no outside washing line...

    Thank you for your comments, i am really sorry about that, I will make sure a dryer is available thank you. Property Owner

    Handy for Hawkshead village and local walks.

  • "An absolute gem of a holiday cottage."

    Very clean and comfortable. the shower was very good and plenty of kitchen utensils, bowls etc. The bedrooms were lovely and the beds comfortable. The cottage was situated in the centre of Hawkshead and once parked up you didn't really need to use your car as there were plenty of amenities on the doorstep as well as good walking. We couldn't fault it other than possibly the lack of a dvd player,( a very minor issue) but the smart TV was more than adequate so not really a problem. A really lovely little cottage. Will definitely go back.

  • "Lovely little cottage in a central location of Hawkshead."

    Owner has clearly invested time and money into making the cottage appealing, interiors are beautiful. Fully equipped kitchen, again all lovely. We didn’t use the small courtyard due to weather but would have in dryer conditions!

About the location

HAWKSHEAD

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.
