    • “Bathroom window was sealed up so condensation was an issue which we did share with the lady in the office who was very helpful and made a note of it. One of two descriptions a little bit inaccurate, but nothing to deter from a very pleasant stay in a very well fitted out accommodation .”

    Mr Threlfall, Stockport, December 2018

    • “Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location.”

    Mrs Margets, Exeter, November 2018

    • “Excellent use of a small space, and perfect for couples. We had a lovely honeymoon thank you :-)”

    Miss Johnston, GIBSIDE, NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, October 2018

    • “The cottage was comfortable, clean and the fittings were of a high standard. The good quality shower was a pleasure to use and the large bed was very comfortable. The Co-op Store is a couple of minutes walk away and I found this very convenient to use on a daily basis. I stayed here for one week while attending a wedding venue at Belmount Hall. I thoroughly recommend Alice's Cottage for a single person or a couple.”

    Mrs Broughton, Loughborough, September 2018

    • “With the cottage having a washer/dryer it may be a good idea to inform visitors that there isn't an iron or ironing board. I appreciate that storage is an issue but perhaps they could be stored in the bedroom. Other than the above the cottage exceeded or expectations and we had a wonderful holiday and have already booked the cottage for May and September 2019”

    Mrs Roberton, Hellifield, August 2018

    • “The cottage was characterist, clean, modern with an unprecedented attention to detail. Each space was very well planned and exceptionally comfortable, a reall home from home. Hawkshead is a great base for exploring the Lake District, I would definitely recommend this cottage and area to others and would use again”

    Mr Hummerstone, Sandy, June 2018

    • “A lovely cottage in a great location, couldn’t have asked for more. Property has been done to a high standard. Would highly recommend as a base for exploring the area.”

    Mrs Whyte, Stonehaven, June 2018

    • “Well organised and accurate description of product. The cottage was exceptional and far exceeded expectations.”

    Mr Jones, Shrewsbury, April 2018

    • “Alice’s cottage is a perfect spot for a relaxing break. We use this for ioi”

    Mrs Green, Edinburgh, March 2018

    • “Beautiful, cosy cottage in great location. Nicely decorated. Lots of character. Photos don’t do it justice. Received a warm welcome as we were the first people to stay. Pub and shop next door. Really enjoyed it. Recommended.”

    Ms Brunt, Ulverston, January 2018

Regional Information

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.
