This cottage is situated in the village of Hawkshead, known for its connections to Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. There are several National Trust properties here, amongst the traffic-free villages narrow streets and flower-filled passages, and a range of pubs in which to enjoy a homecooked lunch or a quiet pint.

We loved this cottage, it is a credit to the owners and cleaner, it is very clean, well maintained, has good wifi. If you like to sleep in the pitch black and with black out blinds, this isn't the cottage for you but wasn't a bother to us.

Excellent service from beginning to end from Lakeland Hideaways - we will definitely use again. We were looking for a cottage within easy walking distance from pubs and shops. 11 Kings Yard exceeded our expectations. For a small cottage, it had everything: 2 bathrooms, double, twin, open plan living/dining/kitchen and parking. The pubs and shops ofRead more Hawkshead were a stones throw. The interiors were beautifully done. No view to speak of and limited outside space but given that we visited in winter, we weren't concerned by that and the interior more than made up for it. All in all fantastic value for money and exactly what we needed. Hide
