    “We arrived slightly early and the cottage was ready.”

    .. we felt extremely comfortable with the cottage and everything was spotless. The beds were comfortable and we had towels laid out at the bottom of each bed. The kitchen is well equipped and I really would struggle to say what it didn't have... We made use of the barbeque and bought kindle although they do keep plenty of stock on site and have a honesty box..great idea.

    .. we felt extremely comfortable with the cottage and everything was spotless. The beds were comfortable and we had towels laid out at the bottom of each bed. The kitchen is well equipped and I really would struggle to say what it didn't have... We made use of the barbeque and bought kindle although they do keep plenty of stock on site and have a honesty box..great idea. Unfortunately we didn't use the pool but as we stayed during Covid we thought it best not to. It is extremely quiet and very peaceful in the surrounding area and great to go off and explore..there is a shop on site for supplies and on Saturday we had a pizza van turn up selling freshly baked pizzas...tasted good too. You need a car to go further afield and we parked up at Lakeside (about 7mins in car) to board the boat over to Bowness which is well worth a visit. As this was a family get together we really enjoyed our time here and would stay again in a heartbeat... we had no issues therefore we didn't need to contact anyone. Plenty of spaces to park the cars... The cottage was very large and as we were a party of 8 people we all felt we had plenty of space.. There is also a gym on site but again we didn't use it.

About the location

HAWKSHEAD

Ambleside 4 miles; Kendal 24 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..
