Living Accommodation

Hatter's Cottage is an 18th century farm cottage tucked away down a private lane 150 metres from public roads in the centre of the southern Lake District. A mile from picturesque Hawkshead village, it is surrounded by gardens and fields, and the only rented property on our small farm (no tractors!).

The cottage has been completely refurbished but retains original features: beamed ceilings, stone hearth (no open fire, sorry) and alcoves used in the local hat-making industry.

The stable-style front door leads straight into the sitting room with two comfy sofas, an easy chair, TV, DVD player and Wifi. Next door is the kitchen/dining room, fully remodelled this year. In the dining area the antique oak furniture - table and welsh dresser - retains the old-world atmosphere.

Kitchen equipment includes:

- gas cooker with full-size oven & hob
- microwave
- fridge
- dishwasher
- washing machine
- electric kettle
- electric toaster
- full set of crockery, cutlery & utensils

Upstairs there are two bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin) and shower room with wash-basin, WC and heated towel rail - all with views of gardens, fields and mountains.

Hatter's Cottage is on the edge of the peaceful hamlet of Hawkshead Hill, 150 meters from the public road at the end of a private lane. Guests can walk or cycle right from the cottage door in all directions on footpaths, quiet lanes and forest tracks. Mountain walking, boating, pony trekking and rock climbing are available nearby.

Regular buses pass along the road through Hawkshead Hill to take you to Hawkshead or Coniston, and to Ambleside from where there are connections to buses in all directions.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead with post office, shops, and several pubs serving meals, is 1 mile away - a lovely walk over the fields with magnificent views of the mountains to the north. The Beatrix Potter Gallery, the 16th century grammar school where William Wordsworth was a pupil and the ancient church of St Michael and all Angels are all worth a visit.

The former mining village of Coniston is 2 miles to the west, by road or footpath through pasture and woodland by way of the popular beauty spot Tarn Hows. Coniston has shops, post office, cafes and pubs. The lake of Coniston Water is a short distance away, where one can hire boats, or take a trip on the Steam Yacht Gondola. Coniston provides access to quiet lakeside footpaths, and to mountain trails in the nearby Coniston range of mountains where the Coniston Old Man - Swirl How - Wetherlam ridge walk provides a magnificent variety of views in fine weather.
