This traditional whitewashed, end-terrace cottage is situated in the tiny hamlet of Hannakin, less than 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of the quaint village of Hawkshead and six miles from the bustling town of Ambleside.
With pretty views, especially from the first floor sitting room, this wonderful cottage is a popular choice for couples or families at any time of the year.
Set over two floors, but with upside down accommodation to take advantage of those views, the two bedrooms and bathroom sit on the ground floor whilst upstairs you’ll find the living areas.
At the side of the cottage, the patio area is festooned with pretty flowers and plants, offering a lovely sun trap in the afternoon.
Why not amble into Hawkshead and enjoy the pretty cobbled yards, traditional whitewashed cottages, interesting foodie shops and old-fashioned inns?
Grizedale Forest and visitor centre is just 10 minutes’ drive away whilst Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, is 2.5 miles away and Lake Windermere lies just a little further.
This beautiful part of the Lake District offers endless footpaths and bridleways to explore right from the cottage doorstep, or take the twenty minute walk to Grizedale Forest.
After a long day enjoying the beautiful scenery, hurry home to your cosy cottage, put your feet up by the fire, enjoy the stunning views from the sitting room window and plan tomorrow’s great 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.
