Home to pretty cobbled streets lined with 17th century whitewashed cottages, the picturesque village of Hawkshead makes an idyllic Lake District Retreat. Our Hawkshead self catering cottages are the perfect base for a Lakeside escape.

Why a Hawkshead Cottage?

With notable residents Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, Hawkshead’s now pedestrianised lanes are full of history and character. Enjoy a refreshing drink in one of the many traditional inns and tea rooms or spend an afternoon browsing the shops for souvenirs and local produce. Discover the world of Beatrix Potter at Hill Top, her 17th century farmhouse with stunning gardens, or stay in the village and admire original artwork at the Beatrix Potter Gallery. Outdoor enthusiasts can take advantage of Grizedale Forest’s excellent bike and walking trails, or spend a tranquil morning fishing on Esthwaite Lake.
