  • "This is a great place to stay we will be back"

  • "5 adults, 3 kids and 2 dogs in one house."

    Was pleasantly surprised, very spacious modern home that felt like we had gone from home to home. Plenty of room for all of us live to comfortably. We had a swim which was lovely followed by walks around the estate grounds and dropping down onto Windermere. This stay could not be more perfect, a retreat for us all to relax and unwind in the country. We did archery which was fantastic and only a short 15 minute walk to the location. We ate at local pubs which were recommended by the site. The shop on site was great, catering for all needs. The only down fall which was minor was the oven didn’t have instructions and left us starving and eating chocolate and crisps on the first night. Other than that I would love to stay again. None of us wanted to leave

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.
