The cottage is situated in a lovely quiet, remote spot with nice views over the fields. Its only 5 minutes drive from Hawkshead. The owner lives above and at the front of the cottage so one has to pass down his pathway at the side to gain access. The decor of the cottage is rather dated and the bedroom is very small with only twin beds. The electriRead morec shower is rather feeble but there is a nice bath and heated towel rail. It is comfortable enough and extremely quiet without any wow factor. Hide

Wonderful spot with Mr. McGregor's garden at the front. Charming owner, glorious walks and views. To have sheep looking in through the window and uninterrupted views of hill and dale, there can be nothing more delightful.

The views from this apartment are fabulous and it is in a lovely location. The apartment is small but enough for 2 people. It was clean and pleasantly furnished.

Fantastic views Basic living space but everthing you need. Wonderful garden which is well maintained. Excellent for local walks and only 20 mins walk to Hawkshead. All pubs in Hawkshead are dog friendly and are reasonably priced with good quality food.

Customer service from Lakeland Hideaways was excellent - made a last minute booking easy. The cottage/apartment was just right for 2 and a cocker spaniel, all necessary facilities and Bill was a friendly landlord! Great views, great location for walks on the Coniston Fells, the Langdales and Grizedale. Pubs and Hawkshead a bit too far for walking jRead moreust to have a pint. But a lovely stay! Hide
