Spacious property located in the village of Hawkshead, in a popular area of the Lake District, within easy reach of both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water.

Hawkshead is one of the region’s best-loved villages, celebrated for its pretty winding streets and literary heritage. The Beatrix Potter Gallery here offers seasonally changing exhibitions about the author’s life and work. The scenery is, of course, absolutely stunning and Lake Windermere and Coniston Water are both within easy reach, as is Grizedale Forest, with its walking routes, sculpture trail and high-ropes centre.

Entering this handsome double-fronted property, guests will come to the hallway, which has doors on either side leading to the reception rooms. The first of these, to the right-hand side is an elegant lounge with an open fire, bay window, and comfortable seating. This room is separated from the attached TV room by a curtain, giving this space the flexibility to be used to suit guests’ needs. The TV room has a less formal feel and has a TV/DVD. Crossing back over the hall, the dining room is a wonderfully spacious room with a large table seating twelve, a stylish Welsh dresser, and a piano that guests are welcome to play. An archway from here leads through to a second lounge, with comfortable sofas. A corridor from the this room, takes guests to the kitchen with its freestanding units, Range-style cooker, fridge, and dishwasher. Next to the kitchen is a large boot room, with plenty of shelving to keep muddy footwear, a freezer, and with attached shower room with WC, is a very convenient addition to the house. A door opposite here leads out to the garden. Finally, at rear of the house, there is a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, and a second fridge. Stairs from the hall lead to the bedrooms which are all located on the first floor. Four of these are double rooms, three of which have en-suite shower rooms and WC, whilst the fourth has a handy sink. There are then two single rooms and one twin, which also has an en-suite shower room. There is also a shower room with WC, as well as bathroom with bath and WC.

Outside, there is a patio garden with a range of seating and a BBQ. There is ample off-road parking provided for up to six cars.

  • 7 bedrooms: 4 doubles, 2 singles, and a twin

We've recently enjoyed a fantastic stay at Greenbank. For 3 families together with 7 kids the supplies of the kitchen and dining room were plentiful. The layout downstairs worked for us enabling the kids to have movie night whilst we adults could choose to join them or not by the connecting lounge. Two fridges is a must and was most welcome, with aRead more useful utility room and boot room. The only downside was the upstairs needed updating. Quality mattresses and pillows needed plus bathrooms outdated. Hide

We stayed for a weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the area. The house was brilliant and suited our needs perfectly. There was space for all to sit together or in groups if they wanted to. One of our group was a chef and described the kitchen as a chefs dream. I would recommend both the house and area to anyone ,they are all the facility's in the area Read morerequired and Holiday cottage Uk office is nearby. Hide

Cottage in fabulous location. Plenty of room for 10/12 people although not for 6 couples as there are 2 single bedrooms. More than enough pots and pans if you want to eat in although not necessary as there are 4 wonderful pubs serving good food within a couple of hundred yards

A comfortable, well-equipped house, with lots of space, ideal for our family gathering - 3 different families from different areas of the country, to celebrate a 70th birthday. A robust sort of property, yet very comfortable and warm. The location is perfect; convenient for the village, and for exploring further.

Greenbank is a lovely house with ample space to relax & unwind. The kitchen is particularly well-equipped -- with far more utensils than I've ever seen in other rental properties! The book shelves are crammed with a veritable library: not only books, but games, puzzles, DVDs; so that, if it rained all week, you couldn't get bored!

The holiday cottage was ideal for us - 7 people each needing a separate bedroom - as it is roomy, with several sitting areas. Having so many bedrooms with en suite shower/toilet was great, and there is a good, spacious kitchen, with plenty of pans, crockery etc. The weather was OK, but not brilliant, so we didn't sit out much, but for us this was tRead morehe only downside of the property - the outside space is very limited.

While not the most luxurious cottage we have stayed in, it is possibly the most practical with its large boot room and laundry area, well equipped kitchen and lots of shower rooms which made it excellent for our large groups. The location - 2 mins from a well stocked Coop and multiple pubs and cafes added to its convenience.

Fantastic property with the most perfect location for what we needed needed it. Nice little touch with the welcome basket and being allowed to get early access was a great bonus. Staff at the office were brilliant and couldn't be more helpful if they tried. It's safe to say that we'll be hopefully booking again for the same time next year!!!!
