About Tim Hulse
Tim & Beverly have loved the Lake District since visiting together as students to enjoy the walking and scenery. Tim later spent some time working in the Lakes. Now living in Chester, with a 7 year old son and a 6 year old black lab, they get up to the Lakes as often as they can - but prefer the off-seasons when it 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 including wonderful walks in the Coniston fells, Langdales, Fairfield, Helvellyn etc. etc. Only 15 minutes walk to Hawkshead and 10 minutes drive from Ambleside but far from the hustle and bustle. 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.

Thank you Laura!
This is a little gem of a property. We can't rate it enough and has recommended it to others. Can't wait till our next visit in December.
Thanks very much Louise!
Lovely cottage, great location
Very comfortable and well appointed cottage in a fabulous location. The property was clean and well equipped (the kitchen is superb) and plenty warm enough. Would definitely stay here again.
Really enjoyed our stay here, well appointed cottage, beautifully equipped kitchen. We loved the availability of books, toys and games as well as dvds. Well heated, washing machine was needed with two children! Could just do with a really good clean (maybe because we were end of season?) and bathroom could do with a bit of tlc/update. We'd stay again though! Thank you so much for such a lovely experience!
Hi Maxine, glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the feedback, yes unfortunately it’s been a very busy season and difficult to get everything done that we’d like to do but are planning to be on it as things quieten down. Tim
The Granary Outgate #2
This was our second visit to this property having had a wonderful stay the first time. The location is excellent and kitchen well equipped and a comfortable stay.
A lovely cottage
A lovely cottage in a great location. Well fitted out with all mod cons..
A 'home from home' experience... very quiet and a good base for exploring the Lakes..
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. 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.
