Beautiful period property situated in the popular village of Hawkshead, a few minutes’ drive from Esthwaite Water and just five miles from Lake Windermere.

This elegant property, which enjoys glorious views of the Vale of Esthwaite, is just a short walk from Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Perfectly positioned between both Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, Hawkshead has a choice of tea rooms, gift shops and pubs to check out, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery. The beauty spot of Esthwaite Water, great for fishing, is also close by, and its beauty even influenced the works of Wordsworth. Within easy reach are plenty of other places for days out, including Grasmere, Ambleside, Coniston, Langdale and Grizedale, while Windermere and Bowness lie just a short ferry ride away.

On entering this splendid Victorian house, you will find the spacious and inviting living room with comfortable seating focused around the grand fireplace. The beautiful high ceilings and bay window add real elegance to this room, where you can relax with the TV and iPod dock. Across the hallway is the stylish and bright kitchen which has everything you may need during your stay including an Aga, double halogen hob, combi microwave oven, large fridge and freezer, plus a wine fridge and dishwasher. The kitchen adjoins the traditional dining room which is perfect for special family meals. The open fire makes the room cosy and welcoming, and in summer guests can open the door which leads out to the patio. There is a downstairs WC/cloakroom with a washing machine and plenty of space for coats and boots. Going upstairs to the first floor you will find two elegant double bedrooms and a pretty twin bedroom each offers a modern en-suite shower room with WC. Another flight of stairs leads to the second floor, where you will find a large twin bedroom in the roof of the house, with sloping ceilings and a TV; across the landing is a bathroom with WC.

Stepping outside you will find yourself in the large south-facing garden, complete with patio, garden chairs and picnic table - an ideal place to eat al fresco or to simply unwind at the end of the day. There is plenty of space for children to explore and play on the lawn. There is ample off-road parking and secure bike storage.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Despite the cottage decoration being a little tired, this is a clean and comfortable cottage. It was a good size for our party of six adults. The bed in the large bedroom was comfortable and had a great shower in the ensuite. Cant speak for the other bedrooms but fellow guests did not express any concerns. The property is located on a fairy busy roRead moread but far enough back for it not to be a problem with traffic noise. About an 8 minute walk from Hawkshead on an unlit road. Would stay here again.

Perfect venue for family or group accommodation, ample space to move about the generously proportioned rooms. Comfortable and cosy despite its size.

The whole family enjoyed their stay at Hawkshead Hall. Plenty of room for daughters, husbands and grandsons. Had a lovely stay. A very warm and comfortable house.

Hawkeshead Hall is well located being 5 mins walk away from Hawkeshead and accessible by road to Ambleside and right by the Tarn Hows footpath. The house feels more like a family home than a holiday let. Each of the three first floor bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms complete with a power shower and lots of lovely hot water. The house was lovely Read moreand warm during our stay in chilly January. We stayed there with our two daughters & their husbands and our five month old Granddaughter who had previously managed to keep us all awake at night over Christmas when staying in our family home. Hawkeshead Hall is a lovely spacious & substantial home where we were all (with the exception of the baby's parents) managed to sleep in great comfort during our stay. I would highly recommend it for multi generational parties. Hide
