Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Hawkshead - The Granary
Modern conversion, yet retaining character, deep in Beatrix Potter country
Close to Hawkshead village and near the market town of Ambleside, this characterful and charming cottage offers the perfect setting for exploring The Lake District National Park, famous for its stunning scenery, abundant wildlife and cultural heritage.
A short distance from the Langdale and Furness Fells, and not far from the Helvellyn range, it is a perfect setting for outdoor activities including hiking, climbing and mountain biking, water sports - including sailing, windsurfing and canoeing on Lake Windermere or Coniston - or golf, with several excellent courses nearby.
The nearby towns of Ambleside, Windermere and Keswick are great for shopping and are packed with museums and art galleries as well as other attractions such as the Lake District National Park Visitors Centre in Windermere.
With comfortable modern furnishings, and underfloor heating providing extra comfort in the winter, we are sure The Granary will be the venue for many happy holidays in any season.
If you have any questions at all about the property or the location, please feel free to ask. Further pictures available upon request.
We look forward to you staying in The Granary!

About Tim Hulse
Tim & Beverly have loved the Lake District since visiting together as part of a student group in the eighties to enjoy the walking and scenery. Tim later spent some time working in the Lakes. Now living in Chester, with a 3 year old son, Sebastian, they get up as often as they can - but prefer the off-seasons when the Lakes is quieter.
Tim Hulse purchased this cottage in 2005
Why Tim Hulse chose Hawkshead
For years we had dreamed of having a place in the Lakes, and just happened to be driving past The Granary & noticed the 'for sale' sign. We loved it right away, even though we had only seen in through the windows, and put an offer in before we'd even been through the door!
What makes this cottage unique
Fantastic location, so much within easy reach. We love how quiet it is at night, sitting on the back step listening to the owls hooting. It really feels away from it all.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The Granary is a little gem. Set in an idyllic location with walks for every ability straight from the doorstep; Tarn Hows, Latterbarrow, Wray Castle and an easy stroll into Hawkshead. The cottage is warm, welcoming and spotlessly clean with every need catered for. We could not have wished for better weather which made our holiday all the more enjoyable. Tim was very helpful in arranging the booking and providing clear arrival instructions. As regular visitors to this part of the Lakes, the Granary is now a firm favourite with a return trip next year already booked! It's a shame we can't book the same weather!!
