    • “Lovely Views, Lovely Garden - Great Location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Hawkshead is ideal - I found the garden lovely to just relax with a drink and a book. The cottage position meant the views from the living room window were fantastic - great to just sit and stare. Even the bedrooms situated downstairs gave the place a feel that I had a Holiday with a difference. Great fun. Great walks direct from the door to Grizedale forest meant we were never stuck for something to do. Hawkshead is very pretty and has a lovely tea room. Looking forward to returning to a lovely cosy modern and clean cottage.”

    FABCOTTAGES, Bowness-on-Windermere, United Kingdom, November 2017

    • “This was our second choice due to Sykes informing us approximately 12 weeks prior to the holiday that the owners of the first cottage near to Hilltop - Beatrice Potters home was being withdrawn from letting. 3 Vale view was a good location for visiting the lakes, and had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday.”

    Mr Halladay, Leigh-on-sea, July 2018

    • “3 things would have made our holiday even better A welcome pack ie milk tea biscuits Better fitting and quality sheets Better towels”

    Mrs Cannell, Crewkerne, June 2018

    • “The cottage is as delightful as it’s advertised All the amenities you need it’s warm cosy lovely comfortable double bed The view from the upstairs lounge is like a moving landscape painting so relaxing. The cleanliness is a credit to the housekeepers Had an issue with the WiFi but that was our fault a quick tex to the owners a near immediate response so sorted ! The village is literally five minute walk away with lovely pubs coffee shops Co-op for essential groceries and the milkman calls daily What more can you want we WILL be returning for some more Vale View therapy”

    Mr Gravelle, Carmarthen, April 2018

    • “Very nice that the internet was so good. The kitchen was well equipped. Nice view from the living room. The only thing that was a bit of a disappointment was that there was not enough hot water to fill the bath. The shower was good though, although you have to be careful not to slip in the bath.”

    Mrs Van Der Does, Soest, April 2018

    • “The cottage was a bit smaller than we thought and suggested by the foto's. The owner was very friendly on the phone when I called him for some extra information. The information provided in the cottage was excellent: walkinggides, maps and practical information regarding the use of the cottage.”

    Mrs Adam, Gent, April 2018

    • “Location was excellent, cottage had everything”

    Mr Smith, Plymouth, May 2017

    • “We were unable to access the property due to missing key. Owner based in Cheltenham so we had to wait for the cleaner to provide access. She arrived 2.5 hours later and discovered that the property had not been cleaned so sent us away whilst she dealt with it. Not a good start. As a result cottage was very cold. This is the second time in succession that we have been delayed access to a Sykes property”

    Mrs Longmuir, Congleton, 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.
