Property code: 78606

This pretty cottage, situated in the quaint village of Hawkshead within 65 metres of two dog-friendly pubs, is the perfect bolthole for exploring the Lake District with your human and canine family. Sleeping four across two peaceful bedrooms and with space for up to two dogs, it won’t be long before you’re all feeling refreshed and ready to head out and discover the scenic walks and water around you. Take a picnic and spend the day at Lake Windermere (5.5 miles), taking a boat trip to lap up more of the views.

The property, which retains many original features, is spacious and comfortable. While away the evenings on beautiful sofas in front of the wood burner-effect electric fire in the lounge which is situated on the first floor, or curl up with the pups at your feet in the snug for a little peace and quiet. Cook in style in the kitchen among wooden beams and a fantastic exposed stone wall, before eating at the rustic table. Both bedrooms promote a tranquil night’s sleep with soft, restful decor. Outside, a patio area with a small stream at the bottom makes a perfect space for sunny al fresco dining.

Go and take a look at Dove Cottage in Grasmere (9 miles), where poet William Wordsworth lived from 1799 to 1808, and peruse the many dog-friendly cafes, pubs and restaurants in the town. You must also try the fantastic gingerbread from the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop, open since 1854. Take a beautiful boat cruise on Coniston Water (3.5 miles) where hounds travel free, or spend the day at Fell Foot Park (10 miles) where there is an educational tree trail as well as boating and kayaking.

Wouldnt stay again - definitely do not advise coming here with children as the stairs and steps were a constant worry with a toddler. Cleanliness was generally poor and bathrooms in particular werent great. Smell and feel of damp all over, any washing ended up smelling and bedsheets felt wet, awful to sleep in. Weird to have too small sheets for thRead moree bed, had to huddle in the middle to get covered. Kitchen randomly stocked, huge table in a small space and not big enough for four. Hide

Cottage in lovely village, decent cooking facilities in cottage, only one hotel serving food in the village and it was necessary to book a few days in advance which was a shame. The stairs in the cottage were very steep and on a curve, sadly there was no handrail, so it was fairly treacherous to go up and down .

We did enjoy our stay here however It's definitely small, more suitable for 2 people. We are 3 adults and found it a squeeze, even the photos on the site only show 3 chairs around the kitchen tabl.

Just came back from this cottage, the position was absolutely fab, but the size of the cottage did let it down. Pictures made the cottage look much bigger. We thought far too small for 4 adults. The kitchen lacked equipment, no chopping board or grater. Only has front door no back door, access to garden via front door , then to the side. One bonus Read morewas the beds were so comfortable, but wouldn't stay here again. Hide
