The property

Leafy Nook, a beautiful cedar lodge resting in Hawkshead, is an ideal hideaway with a view of Esthwaite Lake, ideal for a family or group of friends looking for a getaway to Cumbria and the Lake District. The Lodge’s award-winning design has been built to timber-framed housing standards in order to last a lifetime, and there is also a meandering stream that runs alongside the Lodge, which feeds Esthwaite Lake. Park up beside the lodge before taking the few steps up onto your own private decking, a lovely spot to while away the hours with your loved ones whilst dining alfresco, while inside you can find even more social spots to make the most of. The open-plan living space boasts a fantastic sociable aspect; take a seat at the breakfast bar to keep the chef of the group company as they get acquainted with the good range of appliances in the contemporary-styled kitchen, or sit around the dining table to enjoy a home-made meal or even a board game. Light up the rustic woodburning stove in the winter months and sink into the sofa to embark on a movie marathon, before choosing one of three well-presented bedrooms to rest your head. The master bedroom is home to a double bed with its very own sparkling en-suite shower room, while the other double bedroom and twin are served by the family bathroom, each spot offering a simple yet stylish interior to unwind in! The park on which the lodge is situated rests in an elevated position offering far-reaching views over the lake, making a scenic spot at any time of the year, while the charming local village of Hawkshead boasts even more scenic wonder as well as rich history; take a stroll into the town to discover a good range of quaint inns, tea shops, guest houses and shops where you can spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Be sure to visit the attractions of the Old Grammar School that William Wordsworth once attended, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, home to an exhibition of original illustrations of the children's writer, while the National Trust owned Hill Top is just a short drive away too. Explore the wider area of the Lake District National Park, with the woodland of Grizedale Forest being in easy reach. Tackle the remarkable mountain peaks of The Old Man of Coniston or Claife Heights or spend a day along the large lake of Windermere, with ample opportunities for watersports as well as golfing and plenty of waterside eateries. In the perfect position for an idyllic escape to the Lake District, choose Leafy Nook as your homely base to return to after each day of adventure.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
