    • “Absolutely stunning location cottage is to a very standard kids and our dog loved it can't reccomend enough”

    Mr Wolfe, Hayes, October 2018

    • “Beautiful house in an incredible private location, literally on the shore of Windermere. It has its own jetty and we sailed everyday. A well equipped kitchen and a log fire in the living room lovely on cool September evenings. Enjoyed ourselves so much we booked it again for next year before we left.”

    Mrs Goldsbrough, Keighley, September 2018

    • “I really am not sure that anyone reads the feedback given! Last year when we stayed at Hullet Hall I remarked that the locks were sticky and that it is not easy to open the doors with the key. This is the same this year, either a new key or oil the locks or replace all the locks. New points: Dustbins. There is only one dustbin. So all bagged rubbish has to be kept in the fridge/freezer/washing machine room as there is a wandering Staffordshire Bull terrier, dog, brindled with a long tail that visits and opens any rubbish sacks left outside, distributing the contents widely. I suggest therefore 2 or three wheelie dustbins that can be categorised for recycling. Mixing bowls, there are none. I thoroughly recommend H Hall and will book again, though not in 2019. As a landlord of accommodation for 80 I understand what is required to keep up to date, on top of small problems and keeping the clients content, so I believe that my comments are constructive. Prove me wrong that feedback is read by sending me a personal email!”

    Mr Kingscote, Bridgwater, June 2018

    • “The kitchen is not well equipped - far too few pots and kitchen utensils. The beds in the middle bedroom need to be replaced.”

    Mrs Shaw, Haywards Heath, April 2018

    • “Poor facilities and cleanliness. Dramatically overpriced.”

    Mrs Allcock, Whitchurch, March 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.
