Location Leave Ambleside village centre on the A593 signposted towards Coniston and take the left hand turn signposted for Hawkshead crossing the river Brathay on to the B5286. Follow this road south for 3 or 4 miles and Hawkshead comes into view. The road bears sharply to left and then right skirting the village centre and the property is then seen on the right hand side. Take the right hand turning into Kings Yard and the car parking provision is immediately to the rear of the cottage. 

Description Hawkshead is perhaps the prettiest of Lakeland villages with its beautiful historic buildings, quaint alleyways, yards and courtyards and is a popular all-year-round tourist destination.

Positioned approximately midway between Lake Windermere and Coniston Water at the northern end of the Grisedale Forest, the appeal of this splendid location is clear to see.

Kings Yard is a charming modern courtyard on the edge of the village and Heron Cottage enjoys some lovely views across to Latterbarrow and north to the higher fells of the Fairfield Horseshoe. The centre of Hawkshead itself is well catered for with a wonderful array of traditional Lakeland inns, cafes, restaurants and shops and is just a short stroll away.

The well balanced accommodation includes a surprisingly spacious living room with double doors onto the patio, a fitted kitchen, two double bedrooms of equal size and a modern bathroom, as well as private car parking and a small patio garden ideal for a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.

Perfect as a permanent home, holiday let or lock-up-and-leave weekend retreat, Heron Cottage is highly recommended for early viewing.
