We have stayed at Applerigg several times over the years and cannot recommend it highly enough. It is in a perfect location just a minutes walk from the village and has always suited our young family and dog perfectly. The decor is fresh and the cottage is always spotlessly clean with a modern well equipped kitchen. It has a lovely light and airy fRead moreeel with a perfect sized enclosed garden for sunny days.

A great place to stay! Comfortable, spacious, well equipped and very cosy of an evening with a brilliantly efficient wood burner. Close walking distance to all amenities (Co-op, cafes, deli, post office, pubs) and within easy striking distance to Coniston, Ambleside, Tarn Hows etc. Walking direct from the front door is also possible.

We have just returned from a lovely week away. We had two small children (1 & 4). The house was beautiful finished and cosy. It was a quiet cottage with only a safe 2 min walk to the pubs/centre of Hawkshead. Yet provided parking for 2 cars if needed. A great location in general for accessing most of the south lakes.

We loved this cottage - so spacious, clean and well-equipped, and a perfect location for the village pubs and shops. Lots of beautiful walks to do locally and only a short drive to Ambleside and Coniston. We couldnt have chosen a better place for a week in the Lake District and would love to return there another time.

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.
