Semi-detached cottage in a tranquil location on the outskirts of the village of Hawkshead, with its range of shops, pubs, and historic buildings.

This property is ideally situated for those who want to make the most of all that the Lake District has to offer, both in terms of its stunning landscape and its cultural heritage. The village of Hawkshead, the centre of which is just a two-minute walk from the property, is known for its connections to both Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, both of whom have National Trust properties in the village dedicated to them. Both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water are within a twenty-minute drive of the property, both offering visitors opportunities to take to the water. There are plentiful scenic walks in the area, as well as more challenging hikes and climbs.

Two steps lead up to the front door of this property, which opens onto a hallway, off from which a door opens onto the lounge. This is a tastefully decorated room, with a bay window overlooking the neighbouring field, a cosy wood burner, TV, and DVD. To the rear of the property, the spacious dining room is a relaxing space in which to linger over family meals, with a dining table seating six, another wood burner, and shelving unit which is well-stocked with games and books. French windows open onto the patio garden, allowing guests to open up this space during the warmer months. The kitchen, which enjoys views over the local countryside, is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher, whilst a door leads on to the utility room where guests will find the washing machine, and /freezer, as well as a convenient WC. The utility room, like the dining room, gives access to the rear garden. Upstairs, there are three restful bedrooms: a double, a twin, and a single room, all of which are tastefully decorated with pine furniture and light, simple colour schemes. The bright and contemporary bathroom is also on the first floor and offers a bath, separate shower cubicle, and WC.

Outside, there is a patio garden with seating to the rear of the property, and a driveway for two cars just to the side of the cottage. Guests are able to use the garage for storing bikes, etc.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

It is very well placed to discover the Lake District. Hawkshead is a lovely little village and the views from the top around its church are great. The cottage is very pleasant, with views to green fields and equipped with everything you may need. We loved the shower! We would definitely recommend this property.

Lovely house in a great spot on the edge of the village. Well equipped and spotless inside, with comfy beds and great bathroom. Parking for 2 decent sized cars on the drive. Co-op in the village well stocked. The Red Lion and the Outgate Inn had excellent staff and food. Just a couple of minutes walk to the path to countless different walks in the Read morearea. 20 minutes drive to the recommended climb to the Old Man of Coniston via Goats Water. Hide

Cottage is really well equipped and is very comfortable and clean. Log burners in the lounge and dinning room are great for those cold winter evening. Bathroom is really fitted out well, with a great power shower and massive bath. Cottage also has good parking.

Outstanding location. Everything in Hawkshead is absolutely on the doorstep. Some good walks from the house and bigger walks not far away. Ambleside and Windermere very close. Cottage itself is very well appointed, lounge comfortable for 5 people, plenty of crockery and cutlery etc. Many eateries with walking distance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Meadowbank. Such a great location in Hawkshead village and walks on the doorstep. The cottage is clean, comfortable and warm with one of the best equipped holiday home kitchens weve had and also a super shower and bath. Wooden floors very practical for dogs and walkers!

Great location, views across the fields on the edge of the village, lovely, clean and comfortable. Only one minor point, the website advertised 2 bathrooms where in fact there is only 1 upstairs bathroom and a downstairs WC - I feel this is a bit misleading.
