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

We have been returning to Hawkshead for Hogmanay for many years now and 11 Kings Yard is by far our favourite bolt-hole.

This cottage is ideally placed for a very short wander into the square in Hawkshead. It is very comfortable, well equipped and we found it nice and warm for mid winter. We have used this cottage before a few times over the last few years and no doubt will be using it again in the near future.

Reviewed by A Woolmer, 1st February 2016

Excellent service from beginning to end from Lakeland Hideaways - we will definitely use again. We were looking for a cottage within easy walking distance from pubs and shops. 11 Kings Yard exceeded our expectations. For a small cottage, it had everything: 2 bathrooms, double, twin, open plan living/dining/kitchen and parking. The pubs and shops ofRead more Hawkshead were a stones throw. The interiors were beautifully done. No view to speak of and limited outside space but given that we visited in winter, we weren't concerned by that and the interior more than made up for it. All in all fantastic value for money and exactly what we needed. Hide
