Just show me Hawkshead Cottages

Picture clusters of whitewashed buildings, cobbled streets, pretty courtyards and unusual architectural features. Hawkshead is a delightful Lakeland village with oodles of charisma.

Choose from a selection of Hawkshead cottages and get to know this idyllic region in the centre of the National Park. Start by wandering around the car-free village centre dotted with cosy cafes, character inns and welcoming restaurants. The shopping's rather good too, especially for outdoor clothing, good quality souvenirs and award-winning relishes.

Historic sites include the 15th Century St. Michael's Church, promising far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside; not forgetting the Old Grammar School where William Wordsworth studied. Another famous writer associated with Hawkshead is Beatrix Potter - browse her original water colours at the Beatrix Potter Gallery, or step into the world of Jemima Puddleduck and Tom Kitten at Hill Top found just down the road in Near Sawrey.

Wonderful walks and more from your Hawkshead cottage...

Quiet lanes, public rights of way, forest tracks and lakeside paths riddle the surrounding countryside, guaranteeing lots of fresh air and fun for everyone, whether walking, cycling or riding is your preferred mode of transport. Expect breathtaking scenery, with Grizedale Forest to the south (think guided walks, sculpture trails, woodland trails galore), Lake Coniston to the west and Lake Windermere to the east. Hawkshead also has its own lake, Esthwaite, where tranquil waters hide rich aquatic flora attracting anglers in search of trout, pike, roach etc.

So as you can see, there are lots of ways to relax when you book a Hawkshead cottage!
