    • “The place was lovely and quiet- just what we wanted. Crabtree had everything we needed, The pool was used everyday and only a minutes walk away.”

    Mrs Penwarden, Thornton-Cleveleys, June 2018

    • “Total disappointment!! After a long 10 hour drive we were excited to get to our cottage (Crabtree), only to find it was filthy and covered in black Labrador hair. We had a newborn baby with us and the cleanliness was not acceptable. Not to mention to damp and mould on the walls! We also had no hot water in the main bathroom and kitchen! Luckily we had traveled up to attend our best friend wedding and they had hired out Silverholme, so we had to bath our baby there! We have filed our complaints with a member of your staff while we were there and the cleaners were sent back in. We we arrived back it stunk of dog and was still as dirty as before! We were then told it was the cleaning staffs last day and that was why it wasn’t up to scratch!! We were told we would receive compensation but we have still had no response. Look forward to hearing back from you. Mrs chamberlain”

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.
