    “The cottage is well located in Outgate, only 200 yards from a pub serving lovely food & beers.”

    Hawkshead & Ambleside, are a few minutes drive away, with the serene and beautiful Esthwaite Water, Near Sawry (& HillTop) & Wray Castle not much further. This side of Esthwaite Water is quieter for traffic too (without the crowds in Bowness & Windermere!!) ...

    Hawkshead & Ambleside, are a few minutes drive away, with the serene and beautiful Esthwaite Water, Near Sawry (& HillTop) & Wray Castle not much further. This side of Esthwaite Water is quieter for traffic too (without the crowds in Bowness & Windermere!!) It is in a 'complex' of several linked properties (looks like they were one long property) behind a gate with adequate parking for 2 cars and a sun terrace. Inside it was very clean, spacious & comfortable with very good central heating for our chilly stay & loads of storage. Excellent TV too (42" I think) unlike many other places which go for a minimum size. The only criticism is that I guess the previous occupants failed to mention the blocked drain in the shower which we found the next morning. This could have been cleared before we arrived (interesting to note that the cleaner didn't notice it either - no need for running water when cleaning a shower?) One easy improvement would have been a more comprehensive welcome pack on arrival. A few biscuits plus some coffee & tea sachets is minimal nowadays. A cottage in Dorset where we stayed last year provided milk, tea & coffee, a homemade cake, bottle of wine and flowers! Now that's a welcome pack! Sykes management have been very good (we did have a problem unrelated to this property and not caused by Sykes, and they did a good job in trying to sort it out).

About the location

HAWKSHEAD

Ambleside 4 miles; Kendal 24 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.
