Thank you for such a wonderful stay. We would definitely love to visit again next year. The welcome bag was such a thoughtful touch.

Heron cottage is a lovely place to stay that just needs a few minor tweaks. It was very close to the village and was very well equipped with everything we needed. The patio door was difficult to open so we found it was easier to take our dog out on her lead . The property was nice and warm which was great for the middle of November.

We arrived at Heron cottage to a lovely welcome from Becky at Hideaways. On entering the cottage there was a very pleasant clean smell about the accommodation, and it was really clean and tidy everywhere. The house itself has an easy layout with through lounge and kitchen off set from this, plenty of room to relax and wind down from the stresses ofRead more life. The furniture including bed, and 3 piece suite are comfortable. We very much enjoyed our stay and the friendliness of Hawkshead which has remained one of our most favourite places. We also appreciated the welcome gift bag containing milk,special tea, coffee, biscuits and Kendal mint cake that was waiting on our arrival. Looking forward to many return visits, and dealing with Lakeland Hideaways friendly and helpful team. Rich and Sue. Hide
