    “We have stayed at Mill Cottage for many years.”

    However, on looking to book the cottage for a similar week next year we were appalled to see that the price had risen by about 50% from just under £750 per week to just over £1150 per week. Although, in current circumstances, we would not have been surprised to see a modest price rise by 10% say or possibly even as much as 20%, a price rise of 50% seems beyond excessive.

    However, on looking to book the cottage for a similar week next year we were appalled to see that the price had risen by about 50% from just under £750 per week to just over £1150 per week. Although, in current circumstances, we would not have been surprised to see a modest price rise by 10% say or possibly even as much as 20%, a price rise of 50% seems beyond excessive. There are many other properties in the Lake District offering at least as good quality accommodation for considerably less. I would also note that there were problems with the boiler that meant we were without hot water on two nights. There were also severe problems with internet access that meant we unable to access the internet except for a short while on a single laptop. This meant that we were not able to deal with e-mails or connect to work.

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.
