Here guests will find a large dining table, and comfortable seating from which to enjoy the cosy wood burner, TV/DVD, and CD.

A door from the kitchen opens out onto a small village square. Upstairs there are three pretty bedrooms, which are all decorated in an elegant understated style, giving them all a lovely restful atmosphere. The first of these rooms is on the first floor- a king-size double which has an elegant ensuite shower room. The bathroom is also located on the first floor and offers a shower over the bath and WC. Up a second flight of stairs you reach another two bedrooms a pretty twin and a single bedroom with a pull out bed for occasional use.

Outside, there is seating area to the front of the cottage, looking out over the cobble stoned street, whilst by the backdoor there is a handy shed for bike storage. A parking permit is provided for 1 car for guests to use in the main village car park.

We really loved Lantern Cottage, it was so full of charm, character and was cozy and comfortable. The cottage was tastefully decorated throughout and was lovely and clean. Its location in the heart of Hawkeshead was perfect. We would have no hesitation in recommending the cottage and would consider staying there again.

Lantern Cottage is located in the centre of Hawkshead so it was exciting to see the stalls being set up for the christmas market,which was the highlight of the weekend. Atmosphere was fabulous along with great food in all of the pubs.

Lovely quaint cottage ideally situated just off the main square in picturesque Hawkshead close to facilities ( eateries,cafes, post office & co-op) The cottage catered for our needs and our family had a great weekend

Reviewed by P Stanworth, 1st April 2016

A well equipped comfortable and warm cottage. Lounge/diner and kitchen quite small but enough for us five adults & a dog. Four pubs, three+ cafes and a grocers within a few hundred yards is a boon. A washer/dryer is listed but it's actually only a washer. Providing coal for the fire was a nice touch. Be aware that there is no outside space if that'Read mores important to you: the parking is in a public car park a short distance away. We would certainly be happy to stay there again. Hide

Excellent weekend break right in the Centre of Hawkshead Lovely, comfortable property right in the heart of Hawkshead village. The location is perfect and the log burner in the cottage was perfect to return to at the end of a day out walking.
