Very comfortable farmhouse in a beautiful setting. So many great walks from the doorstep & places to visit further afield. Hawkshead itself has much to offer & is just a short walk away. The house is very well equipped & tastefully furnished.

A very well appointed farmhouse in a beautiful location, centrally located with ease of access to many areas of the Lakes. Good size garden for dogs to play in and plenty of parking space.

Stayed at Field head Farmhouse on lots of occasions over the past 7+ years & enjoyed the stay each time. We take our dogs & they love it too.Always been able to find new places to explore and walks to undertake. The property is close enough to the Outgate Inn to walk for a drink or meal & also far enough away from civilisation to allow relaxation iRead moref that's what you want. Rooms are big & comfy, lounge is spacious & the kitchen is to die for. Recommended & we'll probably be back next year! Hide

The fact that every room had an en-suite was very helpful and the cottage was comfortable and well equipped. It is part of a complex of cottages so that is worth bearing in mind if you value privacy and peace and quiet. We found a different walk to do everyday from the cottage and we loved the area.

We loved our week long stay. The farmhouse was spotlessly clean, well equipped and a perfect size for 3 couples. It's in a lovely location, very peaceful, but an easy drive to Hawkeshead or Ambleside and their is a pub within walking distance. We'd all definitely stay again in the future.

We spent Christmas 2016 here and it was perfect for our stay. The farmhouse is warm and charming, retaining plenty of rustic features but with contemporary styling, large very comfortable bedrooms (especially the beds!) and new bathrooms ensuite. Whilst it is very cosy, it is spacious enough that we didn't have to live on top of one another. The kiRead moretchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking untensils and we had everything needed for cooking and serving dinners. The open plan kitchen / dining room was great too for us all to cook, chat and eat and we spent a lot of time there! The gardens are lovely and would be great for outdoor cooking / eating during summer months. Good location for walking, but although the 2 nearest pubs are about a mile away, on a winter's evening they were just too far to walk to safely. Good location for visiting local towns and for walks around tarns and lakes; car definitely needed. And finally, it was very clean and Lakeland Hideaways provided good service. Hide

Great cottage for a party of people - each bedroom is en-suite which makes sharing easier. Open plan kitchen and dining room made for sociable meal times. Bedrooms are particularly nice, with lots of room. Stairs are steep but my 80 yr old father managed them ok. Weather was rotten but the cottage was great to spend a day relaxing in. We drove to tRead morehe Outgate Inn to eat in the evening and could recommend there, especially 'Pie Night' on Tuesday! Hide

Lovely farmhouse in a superb position. Plenty of space for 3 or more cars. The inside of the farmhouse is as good as it gets. A lovely kitchen and dining area. The 3 bedrooms are amazing! All ensuite and with TVs. The WiFi broadband is fast and easy to connect to.

This is the umpteenth time we've stayed at Fieldhead Farmhouse and it was a good as it has always been. The space is tremendous and the bedrooms are fabulous. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is to die for. A mid area to Ambleside one way and Hawkshead the other so very convenient for anyone with a car. We will return!
