Chanctonbury: Hawkshead Hill
The property is set well away from the road up a private lane nestling in the fells surrounding Hawkshead and Coniston . With expansive views across Esthwaite vale it provides the perfect base for exploring the Lake District.
This emaculately maintained and presented property is ideal for walking straight from your door and you can easily spend all day exploring Tarn Hows and Black Crag which are close by as well as Grizedale forest for mountain biking and the higher mountains of Langdale just over the hill.
With stunning fell views, this is an idyllic and tranquil location set in the owners’ private grounds. For a choice of shops, pubs and restaurants Hawkshead Village is just over a mile, and Coniston Village is a short drive over the hill. The Drunken Duck is also very close by.

Comment: A small, but very complete and agreable appartment. Everything you could possibly need during your stay has been thought of. Also nice little touches like fresh flowers and scones on arrival. Fantastic location, nice little walk straight from your doorstep along a public footpath towards Tarn Hows. Very peaceful. Just perfect!

Comment: Great Location. Second time of staying, the flat is well appointed, very clean and the plate of home made scones were delicious. Lovely to be able to walk to Tarn Hows, also Coniston and give the car a rest. After a long day walking the recliners are excellent.

Comment: What a superb location for a holiday! The accommodation was perfect (and a very comfortable bed) and the view from the lounge and bedroom windows magnificent. And the peace! Wonderful. Added to all that, there are some beautiful walks very easily accessible from Chantonbury - even the walk into Hawkshead was a delight. What a perfect holiday!

Comment: We have been to chanconbury 3 times and will hopefully visit again in the future.It has everything that anyone could possibley want when on a self catering holiday.It is always warm with plenty of hot water which is a must when in the Lake District as the weather is so unpredictable. As so many people comment in the visitors book we all love the chairs! Sylvia and Stephan are extremely helpful if needed and we always enjoy cathcing up with them.
The walk around Tarn Hows is idyllic and right on the doorstep.The walk across the fields to Hawkshead is very enjoyable with fabulous views.It is possible to spend the week there without even using the car as there are so many walks to explore right on the doorstep.Having said that we always like to go to Windermere and Ambleside when we feel like a rest from walking. Taking the ferry to Windermere makes the visit that much more interesting. We park on this side and take the ferry by foot.
We thoroughly recommend Chanctonbury!

Comment: We stayed here for a week...a lovely place. Not too far from Hawkshead and Coniston. Walks possible from the door. Tarn How at the back...a must at sunrise. Handy milkman service! Dinner in the Drunken Duck was great.

Comment: A pleasent and comfortable cottage with everything that most people will require.
As someone who cannot use dairy products I would prefer that the delivery by the milkman not be automatic.
We did like that the cottage was very clean and maintained to a high standard.
