  • “Cottage was all we expected and more.”

    The photo’s rarely, from web to actual, do the property justice and with the Kirkstone we found it was even better. The views are across countryside at the front of the property which were beautiful which always seemed to have sheep and so many weather conditions that no hour was the same. Was as spacious as we were expecting and everything looked new and clean-lovely wood burner too. ...

    The photo’s rarely, from web to actual, do the property justice and with the Kirkstone we found it was even better. The views are across countryside at the front of the property which were beautiful which always seemed to have sheep and so many weather conditions that no hour was the same. Was as spacious as we were expecting and everything looked new and clean-lovely wood burner too. It was easy to jump around the Lake District from here and the lanes are not too small either (mind you, we’re from Devon and the lanes here ARE small) but be prepared for lots of pools of water after heavy rainfall though this makes rivers then become full and more exciting. In terms of all that you want from the Lakes everything is within an easy car journey and Ambleside seems to be a gateway to most places. It was easily our favourite small town and had most of all we needed there. The nearest big Supermarket type shop is a 10+ mile journey away but if you shop ‘local’ in Ambleside there is plenty of smaller shops. Bit of a black spot for communication at the cottage, phones etc, so be prepared to be in contact when you’re back in range outside of the valleys but there is Wi-fi provided. All in all we had a great time (wife even did the Park Run in Ambleside) and we visited over 15 bodies of water in the week with a favourite being Grassmere and Rydal (next door to each other) followed closely by Tarn Hows in the sunshine and the beautiful Buttermere on a slightly overcast day. End of the week was more damp but didn't ‘dampen’ our enjoyment. Highs-Lakes and walks (oh, and the Gingerbread shop in Grassmere) Lows-Parking everywhere in the Lakes is at least £2 (spent about £10 a day on parking-take lots of £ coins) and, if there is a toilet, 20-30p for a Pee! Enjoyable WInter/Spring holiday with some great photo’s in the bag

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.
