This charming Lake District village is intrinsically linked with Wordsworth and the Romantic poets and with good reason. It's a magnet for visitors searching for a relaxing break or for outdoor enthusiasts looking for a challenge amongst some of the UK's most breathtaking countryside. No visit to the Lakes is complete without visiting the home of one of its most famous residents, Beatrix Potter. Hill Top was her most beloved place and where she wrote her famous tales of Peter Rabbit and Mrs Tiggywinkle. Accompany this with a visit to the gallery in Hawkshead, which holds the original paintings of her work. If you are looking for walking country, then you are in luck as this area is a haven for walkers and ramblers, regardless of ability. Whether you are looking for an active or relaxing break you can have both from the comfort of one of our Hawkshead cottages.
