SUPER FAMILY FRIENDLY COTTAGE IN THE HEART OF BEAUTIFUL HAWKSHEAD

Smithy Cottage enjoys a most enviable location in the very heart of stunning Hawkshead where you’ll find to this day the same higgledy piggledy collection of white washed cottages and archways lining the cobbled streets as loved by William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.

With parking right outside the door, you have the option to simply park up for the week and enjoy the wonders of this beautiful corner of Lake District under your own steam; enjoy cycling in Grizedale Forest, experience the thrill of being above the trees at Go Ape or take a leisurely amble around Esthwaite Water, Tarn Hows or a gentle stroll to Wray Castle.

If you’re looking for a little more activity then take the car ferry over to bustling Bowness and Windermere, sample the cosmopolitan cafes and bars and interesting shops and galleries, before retreating back to the more gentle pace of Hawkshead and all the home comforts here at Smithy Cottage.

    “Lovely place. Clean and cosy. Hawkshead is a great spot.

  • Anne says:

    Great location, right in the centre of Hawkshead. Very easy to walk everywhere. The house was lovely and comfortable. Had a really enjoyable stay.

  • Gerry says:

    Lovely place, very well located and spotless

  • Alan says:

    This is a lovely, well appointed cottage, in a fantastic location in Hawkshead village, close to village shops, pubs, and restaurants and at the start of many wonderful walks. I would certainly recommend it to others.

  • Nicola says:

    Super, comfortable cottage in a perfect location for easy walking access to good pub restaurants and walking trails. Our dog was very welcome, as he was in pubs, cafes, lake boats and local buses. (Dog’s dream holiday) We all enjoyed curling up in front of the sitting room fire after a day of walking and sampling the treats that our host left for us in the kitchen. A perfect stay.

  • Nick says:

    The location is excellent, the house was immaculate, there was a great welcome basket with bread, fruit cake and jam. All the amenities (washing machine, dishwasher, etc) were new and worked well.

  • Jeanette says:

    Lovely place to stay with the family. The pictures do not do the cottage justice as it quite large and beautifully and fully equipped. There was a washing machine and dishwasher. Will definitely be looking to book and come back in the future. Location too could not have been better bang in the centre of Hawkshead so food shops (co-op plus local delicacies ) loads of pubs – Queen Head our fav for food) and teashops too.

  • Eliott says:

    Nice place. Close to the pubs, shops and activities the lakes have to offer

  • Diana says:

    We absolutely loved our stay in Smithy Cottage! We were welcomed with a lovely basket of local goodies, which really warmed our hearts. It is an adorable, very clean, cheerful cottage that looks even nicer than the photos. It appears to be very recently renovated. Beds were very comfortable. It is very well furnished with newer appliances and appointed with sweet Winnie the Pooh and Beatrix Potter sketches or other animal prints appropriate with the Hawkshead area. We managed to snap the shower head when we got there and found it replaced within a couple of hours of reporting it while we were out on a hike – amazing service! In short, Smithy Cottage has everything a family would need to vacation comfortably and even enjoy outdoor dining in the front garden area. I would highly recommend staying there and would definitely stay again. The house is located at the end of a quiet road just off the main street of the village and only footsteps away from everything including the grocery store, a pub, a tea shop, cat cafe, a major hiking trail head, post office and other lovely shops. I would highly recommend staying there and would definitely stay again!
