A little about Hawkshead and Grizedale:

 

• The multitude of public rights of way, quiet lanes and forest tracks are ideal for walking, cycling and riding.

• Further south, the extensive coniferous plantations of Grizedale provide ample opportunities for outdoor activities.

• Hawkshead’s cobbled streets and clusters of whitewashed cottages huddled around secluded courtyards give the village a sense of intimacy.

• Narrow passageways with interesting names such as Leather, Rag and Putty Street, now Wordsworth Street, invite exploration and at every turn.

• The tranquil lake of Esthwaite Water, fringed by lush meadows and overlooked by the seemingly endless wooded slopes of Grizedale and Claife Heights, is noted for its trout fishery.

• At its southern end lie the twin villages of Far and Near Sawrey; the latter famously associated with Beatrix Potter's house at Hill Top, where she wrote and illustrated several of her famous books.

• Nearby are Coniston and Ambleside, whilst a short ferry crossing connects with Bowness on the far side of Windermere.
