Hawkshead is a beautiful village of historical interest. It has a small supermarket, newsagents and post office and a section of independent shops. Milk and other local fresh produce can be delivered daily. There are also four Pubs in the village all serving food as well as a selection of cafes.

The Barn is comfortably furnished and well equipped to ensure a ‘home from home’ with everything you need to enjoy your self catering experience. The views from the large front bedroom are stunning.

There are many beautiful walks from the door and direct cycle access to the numerous mountain biking trails in Grizedale Forest.

Very Good

“The best holiday accommodation ever!”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2019

For anyone who loves the outdoors, this accommodation could not be better. It was an extremely clean cottage with everything you could need - a well equipped kitchen, a brand new bathroom, washing machine, warm and amazing views from the windows - there was even a secure shed to keep bikes - watched on by a group of alpacas! The cottage is just a 5 minute walk from Hawkshead where there are 4 great pubs for evening grub, and at the bottom of the bridleway taking you into Grizedale Forest. We will definitely be back
