Hawkshead Short Breaks

Short Breaks in Hawkshead Cottages

Hawkshead shorts breaks are available throughout the year. This is the perfect place in the western Lake District to escape for a long weekend or mid-week break.

The picture-postcard village of Hawkshead is only 40 minutes from the M6 motorway. Yet it puts you in the heart of idyllic Lake District countryside. We have charming cottages, refurbished with 21st century mod-cons such as WiFi, coffee makers and TV entertainment packages as well as luxury cottages with designer bathrooms, games rooms, hot tubs and much more!

If you are flexible on location, then why not consider our Short Breaks Cottages in another location. Contact our excellent customer service team on 015494 88855 if you would like help booking your mini-break.

This chocolate box village, east of Coniston Water, is car-free and about as charming as an olde world English village could be. Lose yourself in the idyllic ancient history that is everywhere in this village. From the vernacular architecture and quaint shops to the surrounding chocolate-box landscape. And re-fuel, picking up some tasty delights from The Honeypot, a wonderful delicatessen. Or check out The Hawkshead Relish Company, both on The Square.

A world away from traffic and busy schedules – Hawkshead will take you away to quiet village life. Visit a couple of local pubs and several tea rooms. Historians may like the 15th Century church on a hill, Beatrix Potter Museum and the Grammar School that William Wordsworth attended, as well as the house that he lodged in.

Don’t waste time on travel when you are here. Enjoy your short break with walks and attractions within walking or cycling distance. A beautiful 6 miles circular walking route from Hawkshead village takes you to Tarn Hows. This is part of the Monk Coniston Estate, once owned by Beatrix Potter and is a must.
