    “You could get the property very cosy and we appreciated the bike storage and the heated drying rack.”

    2 people actually stayed which was just as well because I could not have climbed easily in and out of the double bed, Again because there were 2 of us, we didn’t have to use the sofa. Which as other reviewers have said, is too inclined to be comfortable, even with cushions. ...

    2 people actually stayed which was just as well because I could not have climbed easily in and out of the double bed, Again because there were 2 of us, we didn’t have to use the sofa. Which as other reviewers have said, is too inclined to be comfortable, even with cushions. It is right on the road but we knew that. You are aware of it but it is made worse because people use the turning immediately opposite, to pull in and check directions. They then usual turn around, as they have missed the junction to Grizedale. This is possibly because the road signs are not very visible and in fact pointing the wrong way. Correcting this would help. The cottage is located in a very good position for exploring on foot and bike.

About the location


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: Maximum 4 guests including infants.
