Thoughtfully styled property for two in the popular attractive village of Hawkshead, with easy access to Lake Windermere and Grizedale Forest.

Oozing character, this beautifully refurbished cottage cleverly combines traditional features with contemporary touches to create a welcoming couples’ retreat. Overlooking the main square in the bustling village of Hawkshead, it is perfectly placed for adventurers who want to enjoy the great outdoors. Some great pubs, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance, making this a convenient and pleasant getaway.

Accessed via a set of external steps, this welcoming property is both stylish and elegant, with many period features such as exposed stone walls and beams. In the open-plan living space, the lounge area is particularly relaxing, with a leather sofa and wood burner making it a super spot to cuddle up and put your feet up. The smart kitchen offers everything you might need to prepare your favourite meals or snacks, if you don’t fancy eating out. A glass-sided staircase leads up to a romantic bedroom, which has been designed in neutral tones to create a restful atmosphere. Underfloor heating throughout the property adds to its homely and cosy feel.

Soak up some of the history of Wray Castle (3 miles) with its towers and turrets. For a day packed with woodland walks, sculpture trails and even Segway riding, Grizedale Forest (3 miles) is a super choice.

Great little apartment for my wife and I to stay in whilst in the Lakes for a week. Great location both for a wide variety of walks as well as several pubs. Really appreciated having the comfortable lounge on a wet day to read books and chill with TV. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils etc., much better than some places we have stayed in theRead more past. Would definitely recommend! Hide

A lovely cottage, ideal for 2 people! We stayed here for a week and had such a relaxing, if quite energetic time. We stayed during the first easing of lockdown, so while the pubs and shops were open there were restrictions, such as having to eat outside, this was not a problem though as the pubs had heaters and we managed to dodge the showers. The Read morecottage itself was well equipped and the bed comfortable, it had everything needed for a weeks stay and was a great base to explore the Lakes. Hide

Goosyfoot is gorgeous! Its perfect for a romantic holiday for a couple. The location, in the centre of Hawkshead, is ideal. Loads of great walks from the door so you really dont need your car once youve arrived. There are several pubs and cafes in the village centre and a deli and a co-op a couple of steps from the door. Definitely recommended

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.
