Bright cottage located in the village of Hawkshead, ideal for a family break in the stunning Lake District.

This cottage is situated in the village of Hawkshead, known for its connections to Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. There are several National Trust properties here, amongst the traffic-free villages narrow streets and flower-filled passages, and a range of pubs in which to enjoy a homecooked lunch or a quiet pint. The village is within easy driving distance of two the region’s most famous lakes: Windermere and Coniston Water, each offering a range of activities both on and off the water.

There is a small freezer located under the stairs.

Outside, there is a secure enclosed patio garden to the rear of the property, which has garden furniture, making it a great place to relax with a drink or perhaps enjoy an alfresco meal. Parking is available for one car just in front of the cottage.

Super little place. A few minutes walk from the centre of Hawkshead. Lovely open plan kitchen/living room and diner looking out onto its own patio area. With a really good clean inside and tidy up of the garden, this place could be a gem.

The cottage was perfect in almost every respect, comfortable, spacious, very well equipped, location. The only problem was nowhere to put clothes etc in the second bedroom. When staying with friends it is rather awkward to be sharing the wardrobes in one bedroom!!

Cosy, well appointed property in the middle of charming Hawkshead. Perfect for our family of 4 as there is loads to do in the surrounding area with kids (ours are 4 & 7) and the relaxed local pubs in the village meant we didn't need to cook every night. We would come again
