Retreat into an unspoilt village that has still retained its traditional charm. Choose from a wide variety of self catering accommodation with romantic seclusion, stunning views and cosy log fires. It’s just perfect for the two of you. The village of Hawkshead is nestling in the beautiful vale of Esthwaite, and is characterised by the cluster of whitewashed higgledy – piggledy houses. Wander hand in hand around the quiet village with its beautiful old buildings, churches, and rich history. And what better way to spend an hour or so sampling the local ales and cuisines.

The local pubs in the village centre provide a relaxed and cosy atmosphere. From roaring log fires to open beer gardens; it’s perfect no matter what time of the year. Sit and soak up the Lakeland air and the views beyond.

Hawkshead Relish based in the centre of Hawkshead has a unique range of pickles, jams, marmalades and of course chutneys. It is definitely worth a visit to sample the range of food on offer.

Every room contains a reference to a picture in a ‘tale’. Beatrix Potter took her inspiration from the garden for Peter Rabbit. Those that have read the books will know that the romance behind this fairy tale story is world renowned.

The lovely cottage garden is a solitude of mixed flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables. Make your way up the garden path to the front door and see for yourself why Beatrix loved this place. Bought in 1905 with proceeds from her first book.

If you fancy a break from the humdrum of the village square there are plenty of places you can escape to. How about a wonder around the stunning Wray Castle? Found overlooking Lake Windermere with extensive gardens, this beautiful castle certainly sets the mood. To make it even more special how about taking a bottle of bubbly down to the lake shore to watch the sunset.
 
Hawksheads neighbouring villages, Far Sawrey, Near Sawrey are certainly worth a visit. And if you fancy a change the small car ferry leaves from Far Sawrey and will take you to the village of Bowness.
