Holidays in Hawkshead
Hawkshead accommodation, lodges, cottages and places to stay
The village of Hawkshead is a really unique Lake District gem. Its centre is completely traffic-free, with a car park outside the village, meaning you can get there easily while the village itself maintains its olde worlde feel. Cobbled streets, quirky courtyards, and whitewashed buildings all combine to make a characterful place for a stroll. Our self-catering holiday cottages in Hawkshead are something special too. The location is ideal for a romantic break, while larger parties can spend some quality time together on a group holiday. Perhaps you fancy a former country house brought beautifully into the modern day? Or maybe a cosy lodge is more to your taste? Browse our wonderful selection of holiday cottages in Hawkshead for more brilliant choices.
The best places to stay in Hawkshead
For a small village, Hawkshead packs a big punch. With close connections to some of the Lake District’s most famous former residents, the location is the ideal base if you loved Beatrix Potter’s stories as a child, or if you get lost in William Wordsworth’s poetry as an adult. A museum of William Wordsworth resides in his former school, while Beatrix Potter is also honoured in the one-time law office of her husband. Children will delight in discovering the settings for some of Beatrix’s tales or getting messy at the Chocolate Factory. Popular Lake District destinations such as Coniston, Windermere and Tarn Hows are an easy drive or bus ride away from your self-catering cottage, allowing you to easily explore the stunning South Lakes.
