The property

If you are looking for something special in a stunning location Leafy Nook is an ideal hideaway with a view of Esthwaite Lake, the Lodge’s award winning design has been built to last a lifetime to modern timber framed housing standards, there is also a meandering stream that runs alongside the Lodge, which feeds Esthwaite Lake.

Resting within the Lake District National Park, you can expect to find natural splendour in every direction, with a wealth of attractions to suit a range of tastes.

Park up beside the lodge before taking the few steps up onto your own private decking, a lovely spot to while away the hours with your loved ones whilst dining alfresco, while inside you can find even more social spots to make the most of.

The open-plan living space boasts a fantastic sociable aspect; take a seat at the breakfast bar to keep the chef of the group company as they get acquainted with the good range of appliances in the contemporary-styled kitchen, or sit around the dining table to enjoy a home-made meal or even a board game; there's plenty of ways you can spend quality time with your loved ones here.

Light up the rustic woodburning stove in the winter months and sink into the sofa before the television to end each evening relaxing, before choosing one of three well-presented bedrooms to rest your head.

The master bedroom is home to a double bed with its very own sparkling en-suite shower room, while the other double bedroom and twin are served by the family bathroom, each spot offering a simple yet stylish interior to unwind in, as well as ample storage space for all your walking gear too!

The park on which the lodge is situated rests in an elevated position offering far-reaching views over the lake, making a scenic spot at any time of the year, while the charming local village of Hawkshead boasts even more scenic wonder as well as rich history; take a stroll into the town to discover a good range of quaint inns, tea shops, guest houses and shops where you can spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon when you're not out adventuring.

The village is also exceptional in the fact that it was once home to both William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter; be sure to visit the attractions of the Old Grammar School where the poet once attended, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, home to an exhibition of original illustrations of the children's writer, while the National Trust owned Hill Top is just a short drive away too, where you can delve into the life of Beatrix in her very own former farmhouse.

Explore the wider area of the Lake District National Park, with the woodland of Grizedale Forest being in easy reach here you can take to the trees on a Go Ape adventure, explore via a Segway tour or simply soak in the luscious scenery with ten walking trails and nine cycling routes awaiting to be discovered.

Tackle the remarkable mountain peaks of The Old Man of Coniston or Claife Heights, or spend a day along the large lake of Windermere, with ample opportunities for watersports as well as golfing and plenty of waterside eateries, it's a true delight.

In the perfect position for an idyllic escape to the Lake District, choose Leafy Nook as your homely base to return to after each day of adventure.

About the location


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.
