    “I cannot say enough about how lovely this cottage is, you will be so pleased if you do book here.”

    I was worried as there were not many reviews but I should not have been as it was truly one of the best rentals we have ever had. The owner was a fantastic communicator and easy to reach with the few questions I had. The kitchen is perfectly fitted with plenty of basic supplies and easy to use. There is a very well stocked Co-Op just outside so you can cook in if you like. There is even a new washer/dryer which was great to clean up our hiking gear! The living area is cozy and warm.

    I was worried as there were not many reviews but I should not have been as it was truly one of the best rentals we have ever had. The owner was a fantastic communicator and easy to reach with the few questions I had. The kitchen is perfectly fitted with plenty of basic supplies and easy to use. There is a very well stocked Co-Op just outside so you can cook in if you like. There is even a new washer/dryer which was great to clean up our hiking gear! The living area is cozy and warm. The fireplace was wonderful and the dressing room a real bonus. The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom clean and modern. The space was a perfect for our needs and even a bit larger than I had expected. The town of Hawkshead is a dream out of a picture book and the people were warm and welcoming. We arrived after dark which was a bit of a challenge but we managed with Phil's help to get settled very quickly and have time for a pint in the Red Lion ( literally steps away). The Sykes App made it even easier so definitely worth the download.

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.
