We spent six days in this charming cottage, a perfect place to explore Beatrix Potter country. The owner, Geoff, was very friendly and obliging. A perfect getaway for a couple or small family.
Myself & two friends stayed at Gillbank cottage for a week and I found it to be a fantastic change of environment. The cottage had all of the facilities for people to stay there for short or long periods.
The surrounding area was very beautiful. We were within walking distance from the village of Hawkshead, whilst being far away enough to be in a peaceful, quiet little bubble of nature. Sitting in the garden each morning as the birds were singing made for an enjoyable lifestyle change.
We were welcomed warmly by Geoff to the cottage, who ensured everything was perfect for us.
I had a great time and would definitely look at staying there again.
Lovely cottage with all the amenities you could need. Spent a lovely few days exploring the area and the nearby Hawkshead village. Excellent location for getting out and about. Beautiful setting and coming from a city so quiet at night. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Gillbank Cottage has everything you need for a stay in the Lake District. Located close to a number of venues and sites with easy access to walking and hiking destinations. Owners attentive to their guest needs. The only challenge is for those not used to driving on very narrow roadways in the UK, the roadways around Gillbank take some getting used to and require map & GPS navigation.
