Attractive barn conversion cottage, contemporarily styled and yet retaining some lovely period features, located on the edge of Hawkshead village.

Hawkshead is a popular Lakeland village, with celebrated connections to Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. The village pubs both make great spots to enjoy a long lunch, or a cosy pint, while those who are looking to find out more about the heritage of the area will enjoy visiting the village’s National Trust properties. Of course, the real draw of the region is the stunning landscape, and Lake Windermere is just two miles from the cottage.

To enter this property, guests first cross the low-wall via several steps which act as a stile, giving access to the front courtyard. Once inside, the hallway brings guests to the welcoming lounge, with its cosy wood burner, soft sofas, TV and DVD player. The property’s kitchen/diner has underfloor heating, perfect first thing in the morning, and a dining table seating six. It is well-equipped with an oven, hob, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst the washing machine is kept in a separate nearby cupboard. A door from the kitchen gives access to the patio garden. One of the property’s bedroom is located on the ground-floor, a beautifully styled, romantic room with a vaulted ceiling, elegant understated furniture, chandelier light, and a double bed. This room benefits from its own TV/DVD player, as well an en-suite bathroom with a large corner bath, handheld shower, and WC. Open-tread stairs lead from the lounge up to the first floor, where there is a pretty single bedroom and a sleek, contemporary shower room. Quite steep and narrow steps take guests to the second floor where the final bedroom is located. This room is a beautiful loft room, with sloping ceilings, skylight windows, a double bed, dressing table, and TV/DVD.

Outside the property, there are two patio areas, with table and chairs, where guests are able to enjoy alfresco drinks and meals. Nearby off-road parking is provided for two cars.

  • 3 bedrooms: 2 doubles, 1 single
  • En-suite bathroom to ground floor bedroom with corner bath, handheld shower, and WC
  • First-floor shower room with WC
  • TV/DVD in lounge and the 2 double rooms
  • Wi-Fi available
  • Oven, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine
  • Bed linen and towels included
  • Electric and heating included
  • Wood burning stove with fuel provided
  • Off-road parking for 2 cars
  • Walking distance to shops, pubs, and restaurant

Quiet location & lovely walks from the doorstep, no need to use the car. Near to pubs, shops and NT properties. Comfortable, cosy feel but good size family rooms.

We spent Christmas at the cottage and it was perfect. Everything we needed was right there, along with a wonderful log fire and underfloor heating - it was so cosy! It is a 10 minute walk into Hawkshead, which we did not attempt in the dark, but the location of the cottage is great. We definitely hope to return!! Thank you

Ducklin Cottage is a gorgeous, comfy, cosy cottage which is deceptively spacious. Ideally placed to explore Hawkshead, just a 5 minute walk into the village centre, and there are many walks straight from the front door. Underfloor heating in the kitchen particularly lovely, and logs were provided for the woodburner.

Lovely location at Colthouse 10 minutes walk from village. Plenty of parking. Spacious cottage. Steep stairs to loft bedroom but my granddaughter whose 20yrs old loved the privacy.

Duckling cottage is a cosy holiday cottage and great value for money. The beds are comfortable. The location is within walking distance of Hawkshead and within easy reach of lots of great walks.

We had a fabulous holiday at Ducklin Cottage. A real home from home where we could relax at the end of the day and it's a nice easy walk into Hawkshead to the local pub and shop!
