Be inspired by the mountainous landscape and glacial waters of Beatrix Potter Country, choosing this enchanting cottage that’s straight out of a fairy tale. Exposed stone, crackling fires and an array of home comforts set the scene, allowing you to leave your worries at the door and embrace the relaxed Lakeland lifestyle. Set at the heart of Hawkshead village, your cosy abode is a must for couples seeking a stylish retreat away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to experience the iconic tourist attractions of Windermere and beyond.

Overlooking the village square and accessed via a flight of external steps, this gorgeous property is made deliciously comfortable by underfloor heating and a wood burner. Escape cold winter evenings and snuggle up on the sofas with a good film and a glass of wine or settle down to a special candlelit meal for two, lovingly prepared in the contemporary kitchen area. At bedtime, sink into the crisp bedding of the elegant bedroom after a long soak in the adjoining bathroom. There isn’t an outside space to the property, but you are within walking distance of the nearby eateries. You’ll also have a parking permit for one car for use in the village car park.

Venture to the western shores of Lake Windermere, 2.5 miles away, to bask in the spectacular views of the sparkling water and surrounding mountains, heading north towards Ambleside, 5.5 miles away, to browse the independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The former residence of Beatrix Potter is now a popular National Trust property, 2.5 miles away, where you can explore the country-cottage garden that influenced her tales of woodland creatures. Hawkshead village is home to the renowned Beatrix Potter Gallery, which hosts an extensive collection of her miniature masterpieces.

Goosefoot is a beautifully converted apartment and very well equipped in the centre of Hawkshead. We loved staying there and had a peaceful and relaxing break. We did struggle to eat out in Hawkshead as two of the pubs in the village don't serve food and one of the remaining two was booked for many weeks ahead which left only one choice. The Tapas Read morebar and village chippy were excellent and the Co-op is very well stocked. We would definitely return. Hide

Perfect location, very nice property. Unfortunately it was let down by a few small things - the heating was operated by the owner and we couldn't turn up or down, so at points we were either really cold or really hot! The bed was two single mattresses pushed together. No basic kitchen items such as salt and pepper, oil, tea/coffee ect. No hand soapRead more at the sinks, especially with covid is a necessary! We really enjoyed our stay however it was just those few minor problems. Hide

A lovely cottage, ideal for 2 people! We stayed here for a week and had such a relaxing, if quite energetic time. We stayed during the first easing of lockdown, so while the pubs and shops were open there were restrictions, such as having to eat outside, this was not a problem though as the pubs had heaters and we managed to dodge the showers. The Read morecottage itself was well equipped and the bed comfortable, it had everything needed for a weeks stay and was a great base to explore the Lakes. Hide

Goosyfoot is gorgeous! Its perfect for a romantic holiday for a couple. The location, in the centre of Hawkshead, is ideal. Loads of great walks from the door so you really dont need your car once youve arrived. There are several pubs and cafes in the village centre and a deli and a co-op a couple of steps from the door. Definitely recommended

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
