  • Jude says:

    The cottage is in a great location in the centre of Hawkshead with a shop and pubs close by. There is a private parking space opposite which is great. The cottage was very well equipped and clean. We highly recommend staying here.

  • Paul says:

    This was great place for our short stay in the Lakes, we hadn’t been back for several years and were pleasantly surprised by the location, the facilities and cleanliness of the house. It was a an excellent stay, thanks

  • Alice says:

    We just had a lovely stay at Victory Cottage – Hawkshead is a beautiful quaint village with plenty of walking and running routes that we enjoyed. The daily milk delivery was a lovely surprise and we thought the cottage was so cosy. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking and the shower was very powerful. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend!

  • Jen says:

    Lovely cottage and great location. The village is small, but lovely with a shop and a few pubs/cafes within 2 minutes’ walk. A really nice stay overall, the milk dropped off by the milkman was very nice and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. We really enjoyed having some logs for the log burner as well. Would definitely stay again and would recommend for a great dog friendly place in the lake district

  • Kate says:

    Great little cottage, fabulous location to either stay in Hawkshead or travel out. Michelle was a fabulous host, very response and the cottage was very clean and tidy. Highly recommend.

  • Tim says:

    A beautiful, three-floor cottage in an excellent location, just perfect for a couple. Shops (butcher’s in particular), pubs, restaurants and car park (pass included) are all very close by). Check-in/out was a breeze. Highly recommended!

  • David says:

    Victory Cottage is lovely. A period property that has been beautifully modernised. It is right in the centre of Hawkshead but in a quiet pedestrianised courtyard. Perfect for exploring Windermere and Coniston. Great communication from Michelle. Thank you.

  • Dougie says:

    Victory Cottage is perfectly placed in Hawkshead. Two minutes walk from everywhere, but most importantly has a completely enclosed garden for the well behaved doggos.
