About Hawkshead Windermere & Surrounding Area

The areas surrounding Lake Windermere are some of the most picturesque in the Lake District, picture perfect cottages, dreamy landscapes and quaint villages not to mention home to some of the ever popular Lake District hotspots. Loved by Beatrix Potter, it’s not hard to fall in love with the village of Hawkshead and the surrounding hamlets of High Wray, Near Sawrey and Far Sawrey. Away from the crowds who gather at Hill Top, solace can be found on the shores of the nearby Esthwaite Water and Blenheim Tarn.

Customer Comments

Just back from a lovely break at Grange Cottage. The cottage was immaculate - not the most contemporary in style but everything is new and/or in excellent condition and very clean, with comfy beds and sofa, and a lovely new modern shower room. The location was excellent - great to watch all the wildlife in the garden, including a wide variety of birds (inc a woodpecker), squirrels (sadly no red ones this time!) and rabbits - must remember to take a big supply of bird food next time! It was great being able to walk to the shore of Windemere on a night - we had the whole place to ourselves 2 nights out of 3! I also got up early one morning to watch a hot air balloon being launched in the field at the bottom of the drive. Lots of great places to visit and great walks all within a short drive. We will be back!
