    “We just finished a 2 night stay here and what can I say.”

    ....it was incredible!! none of us wanted to leave. We were there celebrating my brothers 40th and The Grassings had everything we needed and more. The house was clean, modern and refreshing. After long walks it was a joy to come back to relax in such a beautiful and comfy home. The children (and adults) had so much fun on the zip line and playing in the garden, and toasting marshmallows at the fire pit We couldn't have asked for more. With stunning views and an equally stunning home this is ...

With stunning views and an equally stunning home this is definitely a gem. Easily accessible whether you're walking or wanting to drive to the many stops around the lakes. We'll definitely be coming back

About the location

HAWKSHEAD

Ambleside 5.1 miles; Kendal 17.4 miles.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.
