Comment: A perfectly placed cottage just outside
the village - I counted 180 seconds walk
to the Red Lion. Wonderful kitchen
where the whole family could cook, eat
and discuss the days activities
together. Great views from the
conservatory, which is also very
practical for removing boots and bags
after a long days walk. A highlight this
year was the Hawkeshead Show, which was
literally just over the road from the

Comment: Had a beautiful week here at West View, the view from the lounge into the field was very relaxing. The house is quiet and very homely. The walk from Hawkshead up to Tarn Hows is one not to be missed.
For those who want to venture further afield the walks in the Langdales are inspiring. The Langdale valley is a short drive and the drive around Great and Little Langdale gives beautiful views. If you decide to venture up the mountains you will be rewarded by some unrivalled scenery.
The fish and chips in the Queens Head in Hawkshead are fantastic, you need to get there early though as the tables get filled quickly.
All in all a fantastic week, lovely walks and fantastic food in the nearby pubs.

Comment: The property was very comfortable and well equipped. The property was very clean and tidy when we arrived. The conservatory was a real asset for leaving boots and coats.
It is in a nice location just a short walk from the village, and with views over the fields. Although there were a lot more sheep than in the pictures!
The walk to Tarn Hows is lovely. We enjoyed the cruise on Windermere but perhaps a rowing boat might have been more fun if the weather had been better!
We had good fish and chips and mushy peas at the pub in the village.
We would love to visit again.
