This is a lovely house in a beautiful part of the country. The cottage is comfortable and is well equipped for your stay. The village of Hawkshead is picturesque with shops and pubs if required and there are great walks close by.

This is a well located property on the edge of Hawkshead Village only a five minute walk from the Co-op. It has the best equipped kitchen and dining room we have ever used. It was warm and cosy. We just about managed to get 6 cars into the parking space. And at the end we wished we coud have stayed all week.

Large house with plenty of space for every one, we were a party of 10 ranging in age from 2 to 70+ and didnt feel cramped. There was always a quiet area to retreat to if needed.

We were told we could get into the property at 4pm but were on the drive for an hour because the cleaners hadnt finished. They left a dishwasher full of dirty dishes, thick cobwebs on window frames, dead flies on window sills and a toilet that wouldnt flush. The latter had blue cleaning fluid poured into it despite it not having been flushed! ThreeRead more bath towels had dirty black stripes down the middle. The oven knob on the cooker had come off and there was just one oven glove. Hide

Incredibly well equipped house in very close proximity to a lovely village. Close to pubs, restaurants and tea shops . Nice to receive a little welcome package .. Thankyou. Some beds were a bit soft for some of our party and en-suites were very small and a bit restrictive for people of a certain age and level of fitness. Plenty of space everywhere Read morebut garden on the front only which was a bit of a disappointment and might not be suitably safe for families with small children. Recommended for larg Hide

Greenbank worked really well for 10 of us. Space to be together to eat or to separate into groups. The kitchen is really well equipped, being 100 yards from the shop very handy and the location is great for exploring this area of the Lakes.

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.
