A very well appointed cottage for a family of an excellent standard. It is ideally placed for a two minute walk into the centre of Hawkshead but in a peaceful location. It is very comfortable.

Applerigg was the perfect base for our week in the Lake District. It was comfortable, spacious and clean. It was well equipped with everything we needed and was in a great location - ideal for a stroll into Hawkshead and for walking, both directly from the cottage and further afield.

Applerigg was the nicest holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. However the garden is not fully enclosed for dogs with just a low wall. Our car broke down on our way up and the girls from the office were amazing. They called/arranged a garage for recovery to take us to and then collected us and luggage long after hours, taking us to our cottage. DRead moreespite this we had a wonderful week.

Great cottage, with a quiet location, yet very handy for the short walk into the village for pubs and dining out. Good dog-friendly pubs several of which allow dogs in the bar area when eating out. Easy access to country walks straight from the cottage, 3 miles to Wray Castle which is on the shore of Windermere.
