  • "The inside of the property was very clean, however the outside left much to be desired."

    The outer porch was dusty and dirty, the areas with stones were weedy and there re weds growing by the front door. The roses on the front need a trim. The windows need a clean. It’s a great pity that the first impressions of the cottage are spoilt for a few minutes work to tidy up the outside.

  • "Great location (new for us) and easy to find."

    Accommodation was roomy, comfortable and pleasant. The parking for us was fine (there were 2 of us in 1 car), it might have been problematic if our party had 2 cars. Also there was a minor issue with wasps in the property which we made the owner aware of. Wifi connectivity was an issue during the first two days due to provider maintenance on the network.

  • "The internet only worked between around 5pm and 8am, which was not convenient as we were trying to keep up with local Covid updates, and also needed internet to book into restaurants, etc."

    Also, there was no dryer or bbq as per advert.

  • "Over the next 3 weeks the main road to the property is closed."

    So the directions should be ignored. It was closed half way through our stay and we had to use an alternative route. This however did not affect our excellent stay.

  • "Great cottage lovely location for exploring Cumbria and the surrounding areas ."

    Would note that the write up states Local pub and shop 5 minute walk, which is incorrect you have to drive . Apart from that great time

  • "Although the cottage is nice, the experience was spoiled by what we felt was very poor customer support."

    For example, we stay in a lot of cottages and this was one of the first times we'd not been provided with a welcome 'hamper' on arrival. Not even a pint of milk. There was only one teabag in caddy. No file of information telling us about the cottage (e.g. no info about WiFi password, how the heating works, how the council's bin collection system works, how recycling works, where good pubs/restaurants are, where local shops are). Cottage was generally clean but awful gaps in vigilance. For example loads of big cobwebs in kitchen rafters and around skirting boards in kitchen. Why doesn't anyone cleaning the kitchen fail to look up or down once in a while and see these? They are so glaringly easy to see. Overall disappointing.

The property

A lovely modern cottage built from character stone, Hawthorn Cottage is ideally located in a tranquil spot overlooking the river, yet close to Kendal, Windermere and the Yorkshire Dales. Beautifully crafted out of natural materials, this picture perfect cottage has been beautifully finished to a very high standard and is the ideal getaway for a family or small group of friends. With all the accommodation on one level, Hawthorn Cottage has bags of character with wood beams, vaulted ceilings, window seats and a wood burning stove.

The lovely living room combines country character with contemporary style, and there's a TV with DVD player and doors out to the garden.

The huge kitchen/diner has a real wow factor and is fully equipped with a large range cooker and American style fridge/freezer with ice maker.

The master double and twin bedroom both have gorgeous oak beams and the family bathroom has a bathtub with separate shower cubicle, vanity unit and WC.

Hawthorn Cottage has been finished and decorated to an extremely high standard making it the ideal holiday retreat whatever the time of year. The idyllic location of Hawthorn Cottage is just lovely, with the river babbling past the peaceful garden.

This is a perfect retreat after a busy day's sightseeing where you can relax and watch the kingfishers and dippers dart across the water.

There's also ample off road parking for your cars. There's a pub at nearby Barrows Green and shops, bars and restaurants at Kendal which is just 2 miles away.

But the real attraction of Hawthorn Cottage is its off the beaten track location on the banks of St Sunday’s Beck.

There are numerous hikes and cycle tracks in the immediate countryside and the cottage is an ideal location for an exploration of the Yorkshire Dales as well as the spellbinding South Lakes. The Lake District really is the ideal location for a family holiday.

Explore the world of Swallows and Amazons from a Windermere steamer, or stop off and enjoy the enchanting world of Beatrix Potter.

Animal lovers will enjoy the South Lakes Safari Park and the Aquarium of the Lakes, while keen walkers will want to venture further afield to some of the high fells to the North.

And when you need to relax after a hard day's fun, the Lake District boasts some of the UK's top gastropubs and fine dining destinations. With so much to see and do in Britain's favourite Country Park, character filled and luxurious Hawthorn Cottage is the perfect base to explore, whatever the time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.

About the location


Kendal 4.5 miles;

Sedgwick is a small, quiet village approx 4.5 miles south of Kendal. A historic Lakeland town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th Century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
