Hawkshead Cottage


Our Hawkshead holiday cottages, which overlook the marina, sleep up to 6 guests. We have 4 Hawkshead cottages, making them popular with family groups who want their own space, whilst staying close to each other.

If you’re looking for holiday cottages close to Bowness, our Hawkshead Cottages are favoured for their closeness to the village, as well as being some of our larger cottages designed for those that require a touch more space.

The living, kitchen and dining areas are situated on the first floor to make the most of the views out over the marina. From the patio doors off the living room, you can walk out onto the south facing balcony. Capture the evening sunsets whist enjoying a glass of wine after a busy day exploring.

If you’re looking for a holiday cottage in the lakes that sleeps 6, our Hawkshead cottage is perfect for you. The downstairs consists of two bedrooms that both overlook the main marina. The master bedroom has a king size bed and an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is a twin that can be converted to a super king if required. The pull down double bed in the lounge allows for additional sleeping. The main family bathroom is located on the ground floor.
