Semi-detached cottage in a tranquil location on the outskirts of the village of Hawkshead, with its range of shops, pubs, and historic buildings.

Located on the outskirts of the popular village of Hawkshead, this delightful semi-detached cottage makes for a welcoming retreat for a holiday with family or friends. It’s set on a private road and has a range of hiking trails on the doorstep, which will appeal to the two canines who are also welcome here too. Sleeping five people, the property is also a great base for exploring the beautiful Lake Windermere.

Enjoying stunning countryside views, this pretty home has a welcoming, cottage-style feel. After a busy day, pull off your walking boots and retreat to the colourful lounge where the cosy wood burner will warm your toes while you enjoy a film. The dining room is a sociable space with plenty of room for everyone to gather to enjoy a bite to eat, with the added bonus of a further wood burner. On warmer evenings, open the French doors which lead into the garden. The group’s chefs will enjoy cooking up a storm in the stylish kitchen, which takes in some gorgeous views from the window. Three restful bedrooms are found upstairs, each tastefully decorated with pine furniture and simple colour themes. Take a relaxing soak in the contemporary bathroom, which is found on this level as well. The hounds will enjoy sniffing around the patio garden outside, while you relax on the patio and take in that stunning view.

Enjoy a bite to eat in Hawkshead before stopping off at the Beatrix Potter Gallery. Lake Windermere (5 miles) and Coniston Water (4.5 miles) are both must-see attractions, with boat rides, scenic walks and water sports on offer.

The house was in an excellent location . It was well equipped & was comfortable. The garage was useful to store bikes. The house was also stylish as well as being practical , having the utility off the back door for storing muddy boots / wet dog etc.

Lovely cottage and in a perfect location for the village and exploring. It was lovely to see the herwick sheep in the field at the front. Plenty of towels/tea towels and we found everything we needed in the kitchen. When the sun came out it was lovely sitting outside. I would use the cottage again. The welcome treats were just what we needed when wRead moree arrived. Hide

It is very well placed to discover the Lake District. Hawkshead is a lovely little village and the views from the top around its church are great. The cottage is very pleasant, with views to green fields and equipped with everything you may need. We loved the shower! We would definitely recommend this property.

Outstanding location. Everything in Hawkshead is absolutely on the doorstep. Some good walks from the house and bigger walks not far away. Ambleside and Windermere very close. Cottage itself is very well appointed, lounge comfortable for 5 people, plenty of crockery and cutlery etc. Many eateries with walking distance.

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.
