What a lovely flat in a superb location. So well equipped and clean and very cosy and modern all at the same time. Hawkshead is a lovely location and has good bus services to all surrounding areas and great walking on the doorstep. Poppi Red and Queens Head are great for food, but you must book the later in advance in high season. Local shops greatRead more and the chocolate and gingerbread shops are lovely (shout out to Alan at gingerbread) and the local COOP has all the essentials. Superb stay. Hide

Beautiful apartment in a beautiful location. Its the perfect base to explore the area. The apartment is clean and well equipped but we found the fire didn't work well and we ended up paying a fortune for logs from the local shop. The heating isn't adjustable and the apartment was chilly at times. There are places to eat in the village and I'm coeliRead moreac and managed very well to dine here. Poppi Red was amazing. All in all we had a really lovely break. Hide

Goosefoot is a beautifully converted apartment and very well equipped in the centre of Hawkshead. We loved staying there and had a peaceful and relaxing break. We did struggle to eat out in Hawkshead as two of the pubs in the village don't serve food and one of the remaining two was booked for many weeks ahead which left only one choice. The Tapas Read morebar and village chippy were excellent and the Co-op is very well stocked. We would definitely return. Hide
