We stayed at Angel Cottage in Hawkshead at the start of May. The cottage was lovely, and very cosy. We chose it, not only as it looked nice, but the location in the village was excellent and we could take our Boxer dog. Ask the guys in the office when we went to pick up the keys were great, and willing to help should there be any issues. Would defiRead morenitely recommend using holiday cottages, and staying at Angel Cottage. Hide

Fantastic location, close to local amenities. Lovely village with excellent pubs and places to walk the dog nearby. The cottage is small but adequate for a couple with a small dog and the garden is pretty with a small lawn and is fully enclosed.

Enjoyed a 4 night stay at this lovely cottage. This is an ideal cottage for 2 people. It was clean and well equipped. The owners have made sure that everything is available for an enjoyable stay and it is one of the nicest we have stayed in. The availability of the parking place at the rear is a real bonus in Hawkshead with parking limited in this Read moresmall village. The garden was lovely, even in January, with bird feeders and a small grassed area. All in all it was perfect for our short break and we thank the owners for making it available for use. The letting agents Hideaways provided a very efficient service and their information book at the cottage was full of valuable information. We would love to stay again when the time comes. Hide

Had a wonderful week staying in this delightful cosy cottage .The log fire made it. The area is stunning and has lots of wonderful walks straight from the door .

We have been staying in Hawkshead using Hideaways cottages for a good few years now but this was our first time in Angel Cottage as the other properties we have stayed in were not available. We were not disapointed. The cottage was ideal for the two of us. Very comfortable & handy for the village. I have booked this cottage again for next year!!
