    Absolutely fantastic stay the pictures do not give it justice it’s so cozy and clean! The location is amazing and there is loads to do! Will defiantly be staying again! Thanks for all the little touches in the cottage

  • 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.

  • Nicola says:

    The cottage is clean, modern and comfortable. Great for dogs as the garden is secure. Hawkeshead is a great village with lots of amenities but much quieter than the very busy Ambleside , which is still near enough for an evening out.

  • Claire says:

    Perfect location and beautiful cottage with everything you could need plus extra little touches.

  • William says:

    Cosy cottage in a really great spot in lovely Hawkshead village, tucked away but just seconds from pubs, shop and footpaths! We had a very pleasant stay.

  • Lauren says:

    Great little cottage in the centre of Hawkshead. Clean and perfect location. We had a great stay!

  • Jack says:

    Spotlessly clean with a very comfy bed and excellent shower. Such a quiet spot and only a minutes walk into Hawkshead.

  • Muriel says:

    Victory cottage was clean, warm and welcoming. Perfect to be right in Hawkshead with a parking spot. Enclosed front garden good for our dog.

  • Simon says:

    Just wanted to say thanks. Victory cottage was terrific – great place in a great location and we loved hawkshead. Would definitely consider returning on any future lakes trips. Thanks very much for all your help, everything ran very smoothly. Would be interested in other properties you manage in the lakes also. Best. Simon

  • Elisa says:

    Lovely cottage, very clean and cosy in a fab location in Hawkshead. Easy to collect keys in Ambleside, great photo directions from Lakeland Retreats. Easy parking right outside. Lovely welcome basket on arrival. Local dairy deliver milk and other goodies on request (price list in the house). Unfortunately we don’t use cow’s milk so we had to pay for one bottle that was left on the first morning which we never used, but a quick phone call and they knew not to leave any more. Great for folk who are not dairy free, and they did have dairy free alternatives on their list. All in all a fab holiday and a great cottage. Would definitely book again!
