  • “Lovely spot.”

    Lots of good walks material and guides. Only complaint is that wi fi was patchy and at times inaccessible. Nonetheless, super little cottage.

The property

Perfectly located, less than 10 mintues' walk from the centre of Hawkshead, with access to all the wonderful attractions of the Lake District, is Kirrin Cottage.

Overlooking a swathe of rolling green countryside and with the beautiful Ambleside and Coniston just a 15-minute drive away, this whitewashed cottage is ideal for a family holiday.

It offers a wonderful sitting room dressed in greys and reds, for a warm, country cottage feel.

The kitchen/diner displays a woodburning stove set in the inglenook - warming your feet as you tuck into a delicious home cooked meal.

The first floor plays host to a double bedroom with views across the fields towards Esthwaite, followed by a twin bedroom and a tiled family bathroom.

To the outside is an enclosed patio area, where you can relax away an afternoon with a refreshing drink in hand.

Stroll into Hawkshead and enjoy traditional inns, shops and tearooms.

Explore the many other local villages and lakes around you, pack up a picnic and take a boat cruise from Windermere to Bowness.

Grizedale Forest is on the doorstep, where you can try anything from gentle walks to mountain biking and swinging from trees.

The National Trust's Hill Top is the 17th century home of Beatrix Potter, where you can imagine Peter Rabbit in the vegetable patch.

Choose this enchanting base and get everyone together for a holiday to remember.

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.

Note: No direct access to garden from property, garden accessed via gate 5 yards from rear door, children to be supervised.
