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 National Park’s Brockhole on Windermere centre (6.5 miles) offers everything from orienteering to treetop treks. Explore the family-friendly Wray Castle and its grounds, 3 miles away.

Cottage is really well equipped and is very comfortable and clean. Log burners in the lounge and dinning room are great for those cold winter evening. Bathroom is really fitted out well, with a great power shower and massive bath. Cottage also has good parking.

Reviewed by Stephen 25th January 2020

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 cottage has an excellent location on the edge of Hawkshead village. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We very much enjoyed our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Meadowbank. Such a great location in Hawkshead village and walks on the doorstep. The cottage is clean, comfortable and warm with one of the best equipped holiday home kitchens weve had and also a super shower and bath. Wooden floors very practical for dogs and walkers!

Reviewed by Ann 12th October 2019

Very clean accommodation and the location was perfect, would definitely go back.

Reviewed by Chris 21st September 2019

A comfortable cottage with a view across to the village, yet only a couple of minutes walk away from the centre. Parking for two cars is a bonus.

Reviewed by Wendy 31st August 2019

Great location, views across the fields on the edge of the village, lovely, clean and comfortable. Only one minor point, the website advertised 2 bathrooms where in fact there is only 1 upstairs bathroom and a downstairs WC - I feel this is a bit misleading.

Reviewed by Louise 20th July 2019

The cottage was lovely, very clean and spacious and an excellent location.

Reviewed by John 8th June 2019

A very pleasant cottage with plenty of room for four adults. Excellent location on the edge of the village and good views over the fields. Will certainly return.

Reviewed by Jonathan 8th April 2019

This is a very pleasant cottage in a lovely location. It is in excellent condition, and generally very well equipped. (Our only suggestions have been for an additional saucepan, and for the option of lighter duvets or equivalent.) We had a really excellent holiday, and would very much recommend this cottage.

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.
