This is a beautiful period cottage with four good double bedrooms and plenty of space for relaxing. Great location outside Hawkshead. Its a family second home rather than a holiday let and the decor and facilities reflect that. A great stay.
A perfect venue for a family get together.Wood burning stove for the older generation lambs beck and fields for the younger ones. Healthy walk to the village. Cottage could not be better equipped we wanted for nothing and every comfort catered for.
We stayed in the Farmhouse with two small children, a dog and our in-laws. The house is spacious and is very well equipped with everything you need! Will definitely be booking to go again. The walk into Hawkshead is the perfect distance away (approx. 0.5 mile) through a lovely field offering beautiful views of the stunning Lakes!
The old farmhouse combines the best of the 17th and 21st centuries. It has the original wooden beams in the ceilings but the kitchen and bathrooms are contemporary and the restoration has been tastefully done. The location is excellent if you are looking to be close to town without being in the middle of town, it is in a quiet location but is only a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive from the center of Hawkshead.
We were lucky enough to stay there during clear weather and were amazed at how bright the stars appeared at night. We found it very convenient to be able to take a short walk into town rather than pay for parking in Hawkshead.

This house is ideally located, a short stroll across the fields from Hawkshead, many people's idea of the best touring location in the Lakes. The old wood in the main living room made it feel you were renting a National Trust attraction and the newer work was superbly done. The beds were adequate, the kitchen small but very well appointed. Three showers! You felt the owners had tried to cover everything a family on holiday could need.
We were slightly surprised at the owners' bravery in putting upholstered dining chairs in family accommodation. Our main gripe was the total absence of comfortable soft furnishings; one comfy chair in the snug and some excruciating French style sofas in the lounge.
But overall we enjoyed our week there despite the, er, typical Cumbrian weather!
