A pretty 18th century cottage located in the heart of the village of Hawkshead with its shops, pubs and National Trust properties. Within easy driving distance of Lake Windermere and Coniston Water.

The pretty village of Hawkshead is renowned for its links to Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth and both literary figures are celebrated in the village’s National Trust properties. Lake Windermere and Coniston Water are both situated within five miles of the property and offer plenty of opportunities for boat rides, water sports, and scenic walks around their shores. The real joy of this cottage is it allows guests to explore the pretty cobbled yards of the village and surrounding countryside without ever using the car.

This quaint cottage was once the village police house and is tucked away behind the main village square. From the small cobbled yard, guests enter the property directly into the cosy lounge, complete with beams and open fire with slate surround. There is comfortable seating for four to sit and enjoy the TV, perfect for relaxing after a day's exploring the Lake District. Moving through to the spacious kitchen/diner, there is a traditional farmhouse styled kitchen with electric oven and hob, fridge, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a dining table which is great for sharing family meals or playing a game. The twisting, narrow staircase leads up to the first floor where you will find the first of the double bedrooms with TV and en-suite shower room with shower and WC.  Next to this bedroom is the second double bedroom with TV, sloping ceilings and en-suite shower room with shower and WC.

Reviewed by Anthony 17th March 2019

It's a lovely old cottage with a homely living room, a generous kitchen/diner and 2 good ensuites. Hawkshead is a beautiful village, close to the Langdales and with Grizedale on the doorstep, so great walking and with a good selection of pubs, cafes and shops. All in all a great short break.

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.
