The cottage was perfect in almost every respect, comfortable, spacious, very well equipped, location. The only problem was nowhere to put clothes etc in the second bedroom. When staying with friends it is rather awkward to be sharing the wardrobes in one bedroom!!

Cosy, well appointed property in the middle of charming Hawkshead. Perfect for our family of 4 as there is loads to do in the surrounding area with kids (ours are 4 & 7) and the relaxed local pubs in the village meant we didn't need to cook every night. We would come again

This cottage is ideally placed for a very short wander into the square in Hawkshead. It is very comfortable, well equipped and we found it nice and warm for mid winter. We have used this cottage before a few times over the last few years and no doubt will be using it again in the near future.

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.
