Smithy Cottage, set in the popular village of Hawkshead and much-loved for its historical links to William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, truly brings something for all.

Entering through the neat courtyard-style garden with comfortable patio furniture, the farmhouse inspired kitchen awaits. The well-equipped kitchen provides everything you could need for a self-catering stay and the large dining table is the perfect place to host a home-cooked breakfast or an evening of family games.

The focal point of this Lakeland cottage is without doubt the recently refurbished lounge. With subtle hues, soft furnishings and comfortable seating for the whole family, this cosy space creates the perfect home from home atmosphere. Kicking back and relaxing has never been as easy with modern day conveniences to hand.

After a day on the fells, you’ll find two sizeable double bedrooms on the first floor, both having access to the shower room on the same level. A third twin bedroom is located on the second floor and is conveniently located opposite the house bathroom, featuring the star of the show – a deep bath. The perfect place to soak away those aches and pains.

Guest Reviews


Smithy Cottage is enviably positioned in prime Beatrix Potter territory, with her Hilltop home – now owned by the National Trust – only a short drive away. All while the cobbled streets, traditional pubs, friendly cafes, and independent shops are right on the doorstep of the cottage itself.

You’re also ideally located for exploring some of the Lake District’s most sought after destinations, including Wray Castle, Grizedale Forest and Tarn Hows. Not forgetting the thrill that comes from scaling close-by fells like Latterbarrow, or embracing the local waters and open-water swimming in nearby Windermere.
