Get all of your loved ones together at this magnificent and luxurious home located in the quaint Lakeland community of Hawkshead. Sleeping four people across two lovely bedrooms, this is an ideal accommodation option for small families or groups of friends who want to discover the scenic beauty of Lake District together. During the day, spend happy hours exploring Hawkshead, which is known for its charming lanes and 17th century architecture. Then enjoy a relaxing evening in the cottage's expansive lounge, sipping wine while you take in the breathtaking views of the fells from the large picture window.

Step inside and you’ll be greeted by a spacious hallway with plenty of space for your hiking gear. Head up to the first floor to relax in the expansive, eclectic-style living room, which boasts a beautiful, oversized wall decoration. Then head downstairs to the sleek kitchen on the ground floor to whip up your favourite meal and host a sociable dinner at the chic dining table. After dinner, make your way to the living room to take in the beautiful views from the large picture windows while you enjoy a glass of wine, or head to the second relaxation area on the second floor to indulge in a little quiet time. At the end of the day, you’ll find two exquisite bedrooms - one fabulous king bed room on the first floor and one stylish king on the second floor.

Pull on your hiking boots and take a scenic stroll to Tarn Hows (2 miles), a stunning lake encircled by hills and forests where you can spot herons, buzzards, woodpeckers and red squirrels. Alternatively, take a cruise on Lake Windermere (5 miles) - the largest lake in the Lake District. Enjoy breathtaking panoramas of the towering mountains while you learn all about the area's rich history.

Lovely centrally located cottage in the heart of Hawkshead. Beautifully decorated, spotless and great facilities. We ate out locally so no need to drive to get groceries, a good meal, excellent coffee etc. A shame that a couple of the local pubs were being refurbished so not open during our stay, but we had good food at the Red Lion and PoppiRed.
