Escape to the heart of the Lake District National Park and call the quaint village of Hawkshead, home. Steeped in history surrounding Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, this charming village and its cobbled streets are home to some of their haunts, and there are many scenic spots to visit nearby, including Lake Windermere (5 miles). Sleeping four guests across two rooms and welcoming two of your four-legged friends, head out for adventures with all the family or reunite with friends at this humble abode.

Stepping inside, hang up coats and store boots in the hall. For a freshen up and a warming mug of tea, the shower room and kitchen both sit on the ground floor so you can feel refreshed before heading upstairs. Exposed walls and beams add character to the kitchen, making it a lovely place in which to spend time experimenting with flavours or cooking up family favourites; after plating up at the table, take a tipple or two outside and bask in the last of the warm air. Upstairs, in the lounge, you can get cosy on the two beautiful sofas the wood burner-effect electric fire throws heat into the space. Rich in colour, and with a comfortable sofa, the snug leads off from the lounge and is a great quiet spot in which to watch a film or curl up with a book. With a bedroom on each floor, rest your head and enjoy a truly peaceful night’s sleep. There is roadside parking available and two permits allocated.

Stroll the winding streets of Hawkshead and pop into one of the cafes or pubs for a bite to eat or a morning coffee before visiting the National Trust’s Beatrix Potter Gallery and Hawkshead (less than a mile) and Hill Top (2.5 miles) for a family-friendly day out. For a day on the water, this home is wonderfully located just 5 miles from the largest lake in England, Lake Windermere.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A charming cottage with lots of original features. Prime location in the centre of Hawkshead. All the amenities you need are included. Cleanliness was exceptional. We had a comfortable and relaxing stay and would return.

Really great location, lovely traditional cottage but a tad small for a family of four. Think it would be perfect for couples but no space for a family to socialise in either the kitchen or lounge.

This is a lovely little cottage. It has everything that one would need. Great kitchen, well stocked. Lovely bedrooms spotlessly clean and comfortable. Overall I have no complaints, would stay here again.

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.
