    “We chose Hilltop as it was near the wedding venue on the Graythwaite estate my son had been invited too.”

    I was so pleased I did. Having used other companies in the Lake District they didn't appear to care too much about cleanliness, I was so happy to find this really delightful cottage was spotless, well equipped and so welcoming. Lovely setting which was peaceful and walks from the doorstep. So ideal for our dog who also settled in straight away. Thank you so much for such a wonderful long weekend.

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.
