Local attractions

Nestled in the Vale of Esthwaite – deep in the heart of Beatrix Potter country – lies the village ‘Hawkshead‘ – situated 2 miles west of Lake Windermere and aptly named ‘the prettiest little village in the Lake District‘.

Visitors will find a wonderful mixture of the historic and picturesque; whitewashed walls contrast against narrow cobbled streets – adorned with hanging baskets aglow with a profusion of colour.

The pubs are not only friendly but offer some tantalising fayre to whet the appetite. A tremendous community spirit can be found in Hawkshead – one that will keep you coming back for more, time and time again.
