Traditional Chocolate Box Cottage set In The Heart of Historic Hawkshead
The cobbled courtyards and alleyways of Hawkshead are lined with pretty, ancient cottages adorned with colourful hanging baskets and planted pots and you’ll find the delightful Grade II listed Corner House tucked away behind the main square and the popular Honeypot coffee shop. This double fronted, traditional cottage has undergone a major transformation with the help of talented local tradesmen who have totally remodelled the accommodation to provide superb facilities for a couple and their dog. The owner has taken great care to provide perfectly chosen soft furnishings and colour palates to create a modern take on a traditional blend that suits the cottage perfectly.
Famous for its literary connections to both Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, take in historic buildings such as Hawkshead Grammar School where William attended and carved his name in the desk, Beatrix’s husband’s solicitors office, now a gallery in her name or retrace William’s steps up Vicarage Lane, past Walker Ground and onto Goosey Foot Tarn, a peaceful spot tucked away within Grizedale Forest. After a day walking or cycling, head back to the village and enjoy some homemade fayre at one of the popular inns whilst listening to the regular live music nights.
