Property Description

Full description

SITUATION Esthwaite View is positioned in a superb yet quiet location only ¼ mile south of the highly popular Lake District village of Hawkshead. Ideally located approximately ¼ mile on a near level walk to all of Hawksheads amenities including a wide range of shops, public houses, chemist and churches. Hawkshead attracts a large number of visitors all year round and has strong connections to both William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Esthwaite Lake is said to be the home of Jeremy Fisher, one of Beatrix Potters most popular books.  

DIRECTIONS From Ambleside take the A593 towards Coniston and turn left at Clappersgate over the river signposted Hawkshead. Continue for approximately 4 miles through the hamlet of Outgate and through Hawkshead passing the school. Continue for a further ¼ mile, through a 90 degree bend, then take the second right and the plots can be found directly in front of you.
