Great location in Hawkshead
The cottage was in a great location in the center of Hawkshead. The bathrooms and kitchen were nicely updated and overall the cottage was clean and very pleasant. As with many of the older buildings, there were many low spots where you might hit your head if you aren’t careful and uneven floors, but this is to be expected in an older building. Overall this was a wonderful place to stay in the heart of the Lake District.
