SNUG COTTAGE IN HEART OF THE LAKE DISTRICT, PERFECT FOR A BREAK IN ALL SEASONS

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!

New for 2012: Weber barbecue now available plus 2 teak garden lounge chairs

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!!

I have stayed in this cottage before it was as good as we remembered. A fantastic comfortable place to return after a day on the mountains.

The granary

  • 5 out of 5
After having stayed at the granary two years ago we were happy to come back.

We arrived on the 26 of July and stayed for two weeks. The house is well equipped and the kitchen is top notch. So I did a lot of cooking without getting frustrated.

We have had two wonderful weeks and again the granary felt like home away from home

Fine - just as described

  • 3 out of 5
Overall, very good; lots of thought had been put into the facilities of this house.

One bonus - the milk, eggs. butter and cheese delivered were wonderful.

Two niggles - the parking was a pest and the house was not really suitable for (even minimally) disabled people

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, sorry you had issues with the parking and with disabled facilities. We don't advertise the property as being suitable for people with disabilities but if you could suggest any basic things that would make a difference we would consider incorporating them. We've not had a complaint about the parking previously either - not sure that we can change anything in relation to the parking but let me know if you think we could improve anything. Regards, Tim

Lovely cottage in beautiful location

  • 5 out of 5
Warm clean and comfortable, in a very good location between Ambleside and Hawkshead.
So relaxing and well equipped and everything was thought of for the visitors needs.
Kitchen well equipped especially and felt like home.
Loved the drying room facility especially as we had a few wet walks.
Ideal for the family that loves the countryside, walking and peace and quiet of the Lake District.
Didn't want to come home!!
Thanks Tim.

Scenic, quiet and perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
We were so happy to find a quality place to stay with our young son! A baby gate and high chair made life so much easier. We felt so at home that we would have stayed for two weeks instead of one. Next time! Thank you to Tim for such a relaxing and peaceful stay.

Outgate is a cluster of houses a short drive from Ambleside and and a short walk from the village of Hawskhead in the heart of the National Park. The Outgate Inn is closeby and provides hearty meals with Jazz nights on Fridays in season. The renowned Drunken Duck Inn at Barngates provides a favourite venue for special occasions. In the higgledy-piggledy, car-free streets of Hawkshead can be found several pubs and numerous shops as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, and the Grammar School attended by WIlliam Wordsworth. Beatrix Potter's house itself, is just a couple of minutes down the road. Cut over the hill and past Tarn Hows to Coniston to enjoy Ruskin's house, travel down the lake in style on a solar or steam ship, or slip back over to the Langdale Valleys, for some of the most special views the Lakes has to offer.

An enchanting place at any time of the year.

Other Activities: National Trust , Go-Ape, food, cinema, rock climbing, canoeing, off-roading
