What a tremendous place. The views are fabulous, the grounds are great and the apartment is excellent. We liked this place a lot and will hopefully be back again to enjoy its pleasures again. The visitor book is full of praise for the place from people who return year after year which is testament in itself.

The Lakes is great at any time of the year - Broomriggs is indeed a special place to stay - just outside Hawkshead, with a lake view and a short walk to a good pub with food

Broomriggs setting is second to none with views over Esthwaite Water and surrounded by it's own grounds. We were able to watch the wildlife from the comfort of the apartment and watch the changing weather over the mountains.

My wife had to smoke outside, which is fair. That she was told by the warden to stand at least 5 meter away (in the rain) from the property as the smoke might set of a smoke alarm in the house seem to be a bit over the top.

Well equipped apartment in a great location with fantastic lake views and good value for money. The 20 minute walk to Hawkshead is 70% on the road which has to be taken into account if you have small children and dont want to take the car. Overall great accommodation in well maintained gardens.

We stayed in Hawkshead in the Broomriggs cottages. The accommodation was high standard and the price per week was more than acceptable. The location was absolutely gorgeous and an ideal spot to explore a lot of stunning sights in the lake district.

It is important to note that these are apartments and not individual dwellings. Therefore one has to be considerate of others. Also, whilst the grounds are totally accessible, it is not possible to step out through patio doors for example and relax outside the lounge. Just on a footnote, the warden Allan; is extremely helpful and very knowledgeableRead more about the area. Ask him about the walk at the rear of the property over to Moss Eccles Tarn. Hide

Such a bright airy flat with wonderful views from the lounge windows. It was a joy to open the curtains each morning to look out over the lake. We had perfect autumnal weather and walked each day with light fleeces. The newly refurbished lounge and kitchen are excellent and the walking books left for our use gave us new ideas in an area we are veryRead more familiar with. Thanks for the tea and coffee and the choice of herbs and spices was most useful. Can't wait for the bathroom to be refurbished! Hide
