    “Lovely cottage and easy walk into Hawkshead.”

  • Stephanie says:

    Lovely cottage, perfect for attending a wedding nearby. Even though the weather was cold my daughters loved running around the lovely gardens. Rural but walkable to pubs and amenities. Would return!

  • Maggy says:

    The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. Plenty of space for us all. Booked to celebrate my husbands 70th and some of his family stayed in Hawkeshead itself. The 10 minute walk in to the village was easy for meeting up with them. We were able to collect the keys early when we called in to the office at 1:30 which was a bonus. I would thoroughly recommend the property for a stay in Hawkeshea

  • Nick says:

    “Fantastic house in a perfect location set in quiet countryside but only a 10 minute walk away from the village of Hawkshead. We had a wonderful stay

  • Tom says:

    This cottage is well located near beautiful walking paths and across the main road from grazing sheep. The garden, through a separate gate by a different property, has a Weber barbecue and beautiful patio furniture. Highly recommend this part of the Lake District.

  • Tom says:

    This is a lovely, characterful cottage in a very quiet location, set well back from the road, we didn’t see a soul other than the postman. That said, it’s only a 5 minute walk to Hawkshead along the road or over the fields, which is a very pretty little village with some great pubs. The cottage was well equipped, we enjoyed cosy evenings playing board games with the log burner going. Also some very scenic walks nearby. Overall a great choice for our party of 6 (and 1 dog), would highly recommend it.

  • Stephen says:

    Great cottage, great location for local walks. Pubs and shops within 5/10 minute walk which don’t require you to walk on roads. Lovely garden and outside area for bbq-ing.

  • Frances says:

    The cottage is well equipped and very clean. We loved the sitting room and having space. The setting is very pretty and it is a pleasant walk into Hawkshead across the fields. A great place in a lovely location. The milkman delivers daily, which is a real bonus

  • Sheryl says:

    Quirky cottage combining modern amenities with an old house – the bumpy floors were interesting! We had a super cosy weekend and loved the log fire, watching DVDs and playing games. Internet connection was surprisingly great too

  • Summer says:

    Perfect spot for families! Our young sons loved playing in the garden and exploring the fields and streams nearby. We loved having plenty of beds, an excellent kitchen and laundry, and a quick walk across the field to Hawkshead Village for any essentials. We were also perfectly situated for a hike to Tarn Hows. Beautiful home for a beautiful vacation.

  • Summer says:

    Our hearts are glowing with gratitude for a wonderful stay! The Old Farmhouse was everything we could have needed or wanted, and it was the perfect family vacation home.
