Why We Love Hawkshead …..



  • Our village has been described  as the “prettiest village in the Lake District”
  • With Coniston, Grizedale, Langdale, Grasmere and Ambleside all within easy reach, and with the busy centres of Windermere and Bowness just a short ferry ride away, Hawkshead is an ideal location from which to visit the entire south Lake District area.
  • Many walks straight from the village through the landscape that inspired Beatrix Potter and Wordsworth
  • The Mountains are only a short drive away
  • Grizedale Forest to the south, Lake Windermere to the east and Lake Coniston to the west
  • An thriving village with a school, church, chemist, doctors surgery,  post office, co-op and many gift shops
  • A great selection of tea rooms and of course, 4 pubs  – all serving food and welcoming families and dogs.

We have a wide range of Self catering properties, all situated in the Lake District around the village of Hawkshead and Esthwaite Water, so whether you prefer a traditional Lakeland cottage, or a Barn conversion; a location in the village of Hawkshead, or overlooking the beautiful Lakeland fells; close to local pubs and restaurants,or beside a Lake, we will have a property to suit your taste and your pocket.

A bit warmer today and the wild daffodils are looking lovely. These are on the shore of Ullswater and every spring, thanks to the National Trust, a fresh “host of golden daffodils” appears in the dappled shade of Glencoyne Wood on Ullswater’s shore. ... See MoreSee Less
