    ““Warm cosy cottage in an ideal location””

    We had a great weekend with the kids at Kirrin Cottage, they loved staying in a traditional cottage with a coal fire in the lounge and log burner in the kitchen. It was nice to stay in a traditional cottage with the benefit of underfloor heating and Wi-Fi. The underfloor heating came in handy for drying our clothes after our winter walks and they were dry in no time.The radiators in the bedrooms upstairs could be adjusted to our preferred setting which was great.

    We had a great weekend with the kids at Kirrin Cottage, they loved staying in a traditional cottage with a coal fire in the lounge and log burner in the kitchen. It was nice to stay in a traditional cottage with the benefit of underfloor heating and Wi-Fi. The underfloor heating came in handy for drying our clothes after our winter walks and they were dry in no time.The radiators in the bedrooms upstairs could be adjusted to our preferred setting which was great. In some cottages we have rented the bedroom radIators could not be adjusted which is not ideal. Kirrin Cottage is approx a 5 minute walk into Hawkshead and adjacent to the road leading up to Grizedale. The cottage was very clean and the rooms have been furnished and decorated well. It was great to have a private car parking space and not have to worry about parking. The bike store next to the private drive was ideal and we could off load the bikes straight into it when we arrived. We really enjoyed our stay and we would love to return.

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.
