Location Hawkshead is a beautiful and popular conservation village at the heart of the Lake District National Park at the northern tip of Esthwaite Water roughly midway between Lake Windermere and Coniston Water and is surrounded by magnificent scenery.

Leave Ambleside village centre on the A593 signposted towards Coniston taking the left hand turn signposted for Hawkshead crossing the River Brathay on the B5286 at Clappersgate. Follow this road south for approximately 3 miles and the village of Hawkshead comes into view. Just as the road bears sharply left before the main body of the village, continue straight ahead onto the original main street (this involves turning right, off the main thoroughfare). Ivy House is then found on the right hand side with private parking at the rear. Main Street is no longer the main thoroughfare through the village.
