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

Nice cottage pretty much unbeatable location, dead quiet at night, but only 10 minutes walk to local hawkshead village with cafes pubs and shops etc, nice rooms with modern bathrooms, only a short drive to other towns and attractions, will definitely come back again.

The cottage had great facilities, kitchen had everything you could want to fully self cater which was handy as eating out is currently problematic, it really felt like a home from home. After a day of hiking we were glad to get back to the comfort of the cottage which was second to none.

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.

A lovely cottage, beautifully furnished. It felt like home rather than a cottage furnished to rent out. It was very comfortable and has a well equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were good, especially the downstairs en-suite. The location was good for us, not in the village centre but just a 10 minute walk away. We would lRead moreove to have stayed longer. Hide

Oh what a lovely property. Warm, comfortable, spacious and utterly relaxing. The rooms were all well proportioned, the bathroom is vast, and we simply felt so entirely at home and well rested. Location is outstanding - we left the house and were at top of Latterbarrow 30 minutes later! - and peace reigned all around.

This cottage was ideal for our group--a baby, his parents and grandparents. Two bathrooms were a real boon, and we grandparents almost had a private wing on the ground floor. The cottage is very cosy on chilly mornings and evenings. We liked the quiet location, near enough to walk to Hawkshead in 10 minutes, and with many walks from the door.
