Attractive ground-floor apartment, offering accessible accommodation for four in the heart of the village of Hawkshead, a short walk from shops, pubs, and historic buildings.

This traditional and attractive Lakeland property is situated in the heart of Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Ideally situated between Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, Hawkshead is a thriving village, offering a great selection of tea rooms, pubs and gift shops, and is home to the Beatrix Potter Gallery. Close by is Esthwaite Water, a fantastic fishing lake that inspired the works of Wordsworth. Coniston, Grizedale Forest, Langdale, Grasmere, Tarn Hows and Ambleside are all within easy reach, and the busy centres of Windermere and Bowness are a short ferry ride away. Because of the accessibility and layout of this perfectly located property, it would be ideal for those with limited mobility.

On entering this charming ground-floor property you will find yourself in a heated hallway with a bench and plenty of space for muddy boots and coats. This leads you into the bright and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The delightful lounge has a TV and contemporary wall-mounted coal effect fire which acts as a great focal point for this spacious room. The stylish kitchen is equipped with everything you might need including an electric oven with gas hob, dishwasher, fridge with ice compartment and washer / dryer. The attractive dining area is ideally situated. There are two pretty bedrooms. You will find a comfy twin room and a cosy double bedroom with king-size bed, which has French doors leading outside. Exploring further, you will find a modern shower room complete with WC.

Stepping outside via the French doors, you will find a delightful private, enclosed courtyard which catches the evening sunshine, a lovely spot to relax with a bottle of wine at the end of a fantastic day. Private off-road parking is available for two cars, enabling you to park up and forget about the car for the week and enjoy exploring on foot if you wish.

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

This is an lovely ground-floor flat within a two-storey cottage building. It has a hybrid traditional-contemporary interior design style which is both comfortable and cosy whilst at the same time being clean-lined and uncluttered. It is great place to wake up in, spend time in and come home to after a hard days holidaying. On top of this it is situRead moreated within just yards of the centre of beautiful Hawkshead village with all of it's many amenities. All in all, a brilliant package. Hide

Reviewed by Bryan 18th May 2019

A wonderful flat with everything provided and in an excellent location. All on one level which is an advantage as our dog is older and not so good with stairs. Private parking at the door, a premium in Hawkeshead, perfect for unloading and loading the car. We don't use the car whilst on holiday and the bus service is extremely reliable and good valRead moreue. Beautiful walks from the door. A welcome pack which is a bonus and a great service from local dairy for fresh milk, eggs and much more. Hide

If you want a great location and a clean tidy cottage, then Jennys cottage in Hawkshead is a fantastic option. With 4 friendly pubs all within a minutes walk you can't go wrong, along with post office, Co-Op, tea shops and more. We stayed with a small dog and he was welcomed in all the pubs. Great location for walks that suit all abilities.
