Property code: 72378

Thoughtfully styled in Farrow & Ball paint colours, this property in the centre of the quaint village of Hawkshead has easy access to Lake Windermere and Coniston Water.

Ideal for family holidays and adventures with friends, this four-person, one-dog cottage in Hawkshead has something for everyone. Taking pride of place in the village and tucked between the incredible beauty spots of Coniston Water, Esthwaite Water and Windermere, you will be spoilt for opportunities to dine out, hike, bike, explore and unwind. Just meters from all kinds of local amenities (including restaurants, a chocolate factory and shops) and with all sorts of activities on offer, you can rest assured your whole party will love a holiday here. Even William Wordsworth lodged just below the cottage!

Take the external stone steps and head into the welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Boasting warm tones, period features, cosy furnishings and handy mod-cons, all generations will quickly settle in and relax. Particularly popular amongst foodies, you will love the well-equipped kitchen area, equipped with all sorts of accoutrements and a stylish AGA. Separated over different levels, the lower ground floor of this cottage features a handy utility area (great for washing off those muddy clothes) and a shower room, while on the first floor are the bedrooms and another bathroom.

With so much on offer in the town and within walking distance, you can easily ditch the car and make use of the local attractions. You can even walk the 1 mile to the North Fen National Nature Reserve at the head of the stunning Esthwaite Water. That said, the opportunities are endless, and you can also drive the 4 miles to Coniston with its popular lake and array of shops or the 4 miles to Mitchell Wyke Ferry for a cruise over Windermere. Elsewhere, why not relive childhood tales at the National Trust-run Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter (2.5 miles), or follow the many trails of Grizedale Forest (3 miles)?

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage is located on a very quiet lane with easy access to walks around the Hawkshead area. It is well equipped although, with two flights of stairs (from the bedrooms to the shower), may not suit everyone. However the utility room is great for drying wet weather gear and is a bonus for anyone who is walking in all weathers in 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.
