  • "'Oh, to be in England now that April's there!"

    '..Had a wonderful 5 day break at Tiffle Bank recently and we WILL be back! Proximity to the village was perfect and with the Herdwicks in the field out front, the location was perfect. The boot room came into its own, what with the April showers, and then log burner evenings! Bit of a Tardis feel as the property reveals itself. Great master bedroom with a sumptuous bed, and storage space aplenty. Cooked every night and God bless the dishwasher! Loved it..

    Wow! What a wonderful review which we are absolutely delighted to receive. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and everything that Tiffle Bank has to offer. We would love to welcome you back for future visits. Property Owner

  • "Parking isn’t as described."

    Told by email after booking to park 2 cars in front of double garage. It’s a single garage with a driveway that you Can’t park a normal size car (VW golf) on without sticking out into the road. Can’t park in front of house as it is a single track road. If you do you upset neighbours and can block the road. Can park in village 200 yards away for £8.50 for 24hrs. House is lovely, warm and comfortable. Everything of good quality Could do with extra cutlery, mugs and glasses- not enough when 6 people and using a dishwasher. Would also be helpful to have an information pack. Lovely location just outside Hawkshead village. 2 minute walk to village. Garden and patio would be lovely on a sunny day. Can’t fault the accommodation.

    We are pleased that you found the cottage to be warm, comfortable and in a lovely location. Your comments regarding cutlery & crockery are noted and we will provide more asap. Unfortunately The information you received regarding parking was incorrect and we will speak to Lakelovers to have this resolved immediately, please accept our sincere apologies. Property Owner

  • "Great location in Hawkshead, family friendly with excellent facilities, the washing machine came in handy!"

    We Enjoyed a pram friendly walk at Tarn Howes, & lots of walks from the door. Fab food in the Queens & Poppi Red & nipped in the Grasmere Gingerbread shop in Hawkshead village to take treats home. Great for families or couples/group of friends. Would defo go back!

    Thank you for your fabulous review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed the location, facilities, walks and local restaurants. We are thrilled to hear that you would return. Property Owner

Tiffle Bank, a charming three-bedroom cottage is tucked away in the breath-taking Lake District National Park in the village of Hawkshead, Cumbria.

With pretty views of the surrounding countryside, Latterbarrow and the surrounding fells, you'll be moments away from local amenities, including a picturesque lake, ideal for a family or group of friends seeking a peaceful escape to Cumbria.

Step into your new home-from-home to discover the superb kitchen/diner, fully-equipped for cooking up your best dishes and offering a charming breakfast bar where you can sip a cold glass of wine or delight your morning coffee.

Head into the formal dining room to tuck into your homemade feast or venture outside to the private, raised-level patio, perfect for an alfresco affair.

When day rolls into night, retreat back inside to relax and unwind in the sitting room, complete with an inviting open fire; the perfect spot to enjoy a movie night or board games with your loved ones. Finally, wash away the day in the sleek family bathroom on the ground floor, or opt for a wonderful super-king-size with its very own en-suite facilities, perfect for freshening up after a long day.

In the morning, enjoy a cup of tea on the patio leading straight from your bedroom. Find an additional twin also on the first floor, as well as a king-size on the ground-floor, each well-presented with fresh bedding for you to rest your head in.

In the morning, take a stroll to the village of Hawkshead, where you will find cobbled streets lined with cute cottages, quaint shops, historic pubs, and wonderful eateries.

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.
