Hawkshead Village, Lake District
Coniston, Lake District
Nestled amongst the ancient, cobbled, car-free streets of Hawkshead and in the surrounding unspoilt countryside, you will find an array of holiday cottages with hot tubs that will allow you to relax in style. The Lake District National Park is full of stunning natural beauty, from the magnificent mountains to the picturesque lakes, and the quaint village of Hawkshead is no exception. There is plenty of self-catering accommodation to choose from ensuring you can make the most of its central location and immerse yourself in the National Park’s splendour. Whether you choose to spend your days hiking, fishing, kayaking or climbing, there will be nothing more satisfying than returning to your holiday cottage of an evening and soaking your aching limbs in a warm, bubbling hot tub.
Located at the northern end of Esthwaite Water, Hawkshead is steeped in history. With connections to well-loved author Beatrix Potter and poet William Wordsworth, you can find out more about these national treasures in the local galleries and museums, whilst Beatrix Potter’s house, Hill Top, is in the nearby village of Sawrey. To the east, you’ll find Lake Windermere where you can get a ferry across to the larger, vibrant town of Bowness-on-Windermere. For fun in the forest, head to Grizedale Forest for mountain biking, tree-climbing and an adventure playground. It doesn’t matter how tired your legs get, you can always indulge yourself later when you return to your Hawkshead cottage with a hot tub.
