Very comfortable and well equipped cottage with everything thought about. Excellent location in Hawkshead with parking place much appreciated. So many beautiful places to explore in the Lake District, all easily accessible. Minor problem with the dishwasher very quickly resolved. A very enjoyable and relaxing week.

A very comfortable, well laid out cottage with the added bonus of an outside seating area. Just a two minute walk to get to the village centre. The mini freezer in the cupboard under the stairs was a hit during our hot weather stay. Definitely one of the better cottages we have stayed in when holidaying in the lakes.

Very good location. Parking space is very tight indeed and you may struggle with a larger than average car. We needed to buy extra hand soap and toilet roll. Local co-op is quite basic so supermarket delivery may be a good idea if you want to mostly self-cater. Be aware that currently many restaurants are extremely short-staffed so you will need toRead more book. Some of the local pubs are only serving residents. Do plan ahead. Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
