Accommodation in detail

There are a few entrances into The Property but we shall bring you in via the farmhouse kitchen; a private driveway affords ample parking and your first glimpse of the stunning gardens. The breakfast kitchen has all you may need including the original range and slate slabs together with the substantial breakfast table, perfect for large groups. The first reception room has a dining table which extends to seating 12, so that Christmas lunch is a must here. This room has a marvellous open fire to sit around and French windows opening onto one of the patios, perfect for al-fresco dining on sunny days. An inner hallway has a cloakroom / 5th WC / wash basin and this leads into the original dairy / second reception room, with large gas burning stove and more beautiful views.

Upstairs to the first floor where there are three bedrooms, one king size with en-suite power shower room, two double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower over the bath. Upstairs to the top floor and where there are two substantial eves bedrooms, both with three single beds in, a little like a dormitory and what a great place to spend time together, also both enjoying the best views. On this floor is a shower room and WC. Outside to the acre of gardens which lead into the beck so parents be vigilant with little ones; wonderful places to play and hide, scenic patios and the detached games room / sun room complete with wood burner and a shower room facility / WC. The games room is a treat and does have the wood burning stove, yet can be chilly in the winter months.

Location

The Property is a short stroll from the heart of Hawkshead itself, circumscribed by beautiful Lake District countryside and alongside a gently flowing beck.

Hawkshead is an adorable village of cobbled streets and traditional Grade II listed Lakeland cottages. You'll find a range of local shops here, including the Honeypot Delicatessen which offers a treasure-trove of Lakeland luxuries. Spend a lazy morning in one of Hawkshead's charming tea rooms or cafes. There are several TripAdvisor-rated traditional pubs in Hawkshead and we recommend the short drive to the acclaimed Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant at Outgate. A larger selection of shops can be found in Ambleside, a few miles away and the larger on-line supermarkets will deliver your groceries to The Property.

Hawkshead is the perfect base for walkers, with routes, right from the doorstep, to suit all levels. Take the stunning walk to Tarn Hows, stroll on the shores of Esthwaite Water, which also has an excellent trout fishery or explore Grizedale Forest; a picturesque network of pathways, cycle tracks and sculpture trails. Why not take on Grizedale's Go-Ape, Latterbarrow, or Claife Heights, conquer the nearby Langdale Pikes or enjoy the water sports that nearby Coniston or Windermere have to offer.

The surrounding landscape inspired the children's author Beatrix Potter. Her former home at Hill Top, Near Sawrey is now run by the National Trust and is open to the public. A truly magical experience for all! Directly behind Hill Top is Tower Bank Arms, a traditional pub with stone-flagged floors, Lakeland ales and a roaring fire.

Bowness can be easily reached via the car-ferry across Lake Windermere, only a few miles from your door. Bowness is a bustling Lakeland town, with contemporary shops and a wide range of entertainment. Hire a boat in Bowness Bay, or take a steamer cruise on Lake Windermere to Ambleside or Lakeside. Windermere Golf Club is just beyond Bowness village.

LocationCumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
