Fantastic quiet location away from the busier parts of the Lake District, with walks to Tarn Hows, Coniston and Windermere just outside the door. Beautiful cosy, cottage with everything that you could want. We will be coming back!

Had a lovely week at the cottage. Peaceful and relaxing in an excellent location to Hawkshead which is approximately 25 minutes walk across fields and tracks downhill to the village. Cottage ideal for 6 adults, plenty of room, well equipped with lovely gardens. Lots of walks from the house.

A lovely property, comfiest beds & nice showers. A good location to get everywhere too. Only downside was nowhere to dry anything (obviously lots of wet walks) as radiators dont come on unless temp drops below 19 degrees. So imagine, lots of rain, yet fairly warm summer? stuff stays soaked all week. Kid locks on windows were disappointing as night Read moretime was hot upstairs and couldnt get air, plus fire hazard. Mad cockerel guards property, but hes lovely (just a warning). Other than that v nice. Hide

My grown up daughters and myself enjoyed a wonderful week in Field Head Farm House. It is perfectly located and wonderful access for walks in the Southern Lakes. While there were only 3 of us, it would have been very comfortable for 6 adults and excellently equipped for cooking for yourselves. Would thoroughly recommend.

A very cosy cottage with a lot of effort in creating comfort with beautiful soft furnishings. Location slight disadvantage as a bit of a trek to Ambleside etc. Short distance but very tricky roads make it a slow journey. Would have stayed again if there were views. Unfortunately no outlook from inside the cottage which was quite disappointing givenRead more the surrounding area. 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.
