  • "The holiday cottage and location were brilliant."

    We had the joy of good weather and really appreciated being able to sit outside (both front and back of the cottage) for breakfast and then dinner. We were on the end cottage and so had the advantage of a larger back garden but there was so much space at the front where we could sit as well. Could easily go for a walk from the cottage but also the location meant you were close to everything you could want - lakes, climbs, walks, towns. Cottage was for 4 people but there was not much seating in the lounge to be honest, which we would have felt more if it had been a rainy week. Note: one of the windows wouldn't open and as it was so hot it was really needed but despite mentioning this and being assured someone would come no one did. Nice having the shop on site in case you need anything although it is very expensive.

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.
