From the front of this double fronted cottage, step straight into the cosy lounge room with deep-cushioned sofas arranged around the warming wood-burning stove, Smart TV, DVD and window seat. A step up leads to the well-fitted kitchen dining area with a good range of pale sage units wrapped in marble effect counters with; electric oven, induction hob, fridge with small freezer box, dishwasher, Tassimo coffee machine, and microwave. There’s a handy door to the outside. The utility sits off the lounge; plenty big enough for all your outdoor gear including a couple of bikes. There’s a washer/dryer and freezer and a handy WC and basin.

The rather steep staircase leads right to a romantic kingsize bedroom with perfectly chosen furnishings and pretty linens. To the left, there is a spacious and superbly appointed bathroom with large walk-in, powerful shower, double-ended freestanding bath positioned under the skylight in the centre of the room, basin, WC, and heated towel rail.

Outside, there’s a bench to the front and a further seating area to the rear with a table and chairs. Parking is by way of permit on the nearby car park and the permit is in the cottage for your arrival.

Location & Nearby


The cobbled courtyards and alleyways of Hawkshead are lined with pretty, ancient cottages adorned with colourful hanging baskets and planted pots and you’ll find the delightful Grade II listed Corner House tucked away behind the main square and the popular Honeypot coffee shop. This double fronted, traditional cottage has undergone a major transformation with the help of talented local tradesmen who have totally remodelled the accommodation to provide superb facilities for a couple and their dog. The owner has taken great care to provide perfectly chosen soft furnishings and colour palates to create a modern take on a traditional blend that suits the cottage perfectly.

Famous for its literary connections to both Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, take in historic buildings such as Hawkshead Grammar School where William attended and carved his name in the desk, Beatrix’s husband’s solicitors office, now a gallery in her name or retrace William’s steps up Vicarage Lane, past Walker Ground and onto Goosey Foot Tarn, a peaceful spot tucked away within Grizedale Forest. After a day walking or cycling, head back to the village and enjoy some homemade fayre at one of the popular inns whilst listening to the regular live music nights.

Enjoyed our stay
On Friday, 05 Jul 2024
We had a wonderful stay in Hawkshead! the accommodation was in an ideal location just meters away from shops and restaurants. The car park was on a short walk away and the accommodation provided a permit which was ideal. The bed and bathroom are both spacious and comfortable. The addition of some bubbly on arrival was a lovely touch. We could not recommend this spot more to enjoy your time in the lakes.

beautiful location, modern fixtures and fittings, lovely bedroom and comfy bed, thirty minute walk into Windermere.

Perfect location for exploring the Lake District. Hawkshead is a cute village, most of the houses are now vacation homes, but still it has retained the village character. Everything is within walking distance, shops, pubs, inns and beautiful hiking trails.
On Saturday, 11 May 2024
Lovely cottage, walking distance from village centre. Great base for local walks or further a field into the lakes. Cottage very comfortable and quiet for a relaxing break. Poppi red bistro worth a look in the village lovely food and service.

So clean, tidy, quiet. Felt so relaxed. We've been stayed in Hawkshead on and off for over 30yrs. Can honestly stay its the quietest place we've stayed in. Thank you so much.

Lovely relaxing location, beautiful walks, great cottage close to everything you need. Don’t get too tipsy before you tackle the stairs, however!

Lovely cosy clean cottage. Lots of walks from the doorstep. Busy little village with lots of pubs but quiet near the cottage. Great stay :)
On Saturday, 28 Oct 2023
Corner House was beautifully presented, plenty of space for two people and had all the amenities we required. It isn’t visible from the road but the instructions provided were clear and made it easy to find. The host was quick to respond to the one query we had. It’s a perfect location in the centre of Hawkshead and we’d definitely recommend it to other couples!

Great location! Very clean and bed was comfortable.

We booked this very last minute, but would absolutely choose to go back in the future. The cottage is idyllic, was beautifully furnished and perfect location for great walks and pubs.

We had a great time at the corner cottage. We had everything we needed and it was lovely and clean. Having a utility room with the dog was wonderful! And so helpful when coming in from the beautiful surrounding walks. We got used to the low kitchen ceiling but it is something to bare inmind if you are particularly tall. We'd 100% come back!
On Tuesday, 26 Sep 2023
We really enjoyed our stay the cottage was very clean and comfortable, with a lovely bath and comfy bed to relax after long days out walking. Good location in the centre of the village and a few minutes walk from the car park.
On Monday, 04 Sep 2023
Beautiful cottage, right in the heart of the village. We absolutely loved our stay and will definitely be back. Highly recommend stopping into Kitchen if you stay - great beer, lovely staff and adorable cats.
On Tuesday, 08 Aug 2023
We had a lovely week’s stay. The cottage was cosy and in an excellent location. All amenities close by. Hawkshead is a pretty village and an excellent base. Unfortunately, due to closures, there are not many places to eat in the evening but would definitely recommend Poppi Red, who serve great, reasonably priced breakfast and evening meals. We would definitely stay at the cottage again if we revisited Hawkshead and have recommended it to family.
On Friday, 04 Aug 2023
Perfect cottage in the heart of Hawkshead. Everything we needed for a week. Love the fact that there is a place to dry wet gear. The bath was amazing! I am about to book for next year!
On Saturday, 08 Jul 2023
We loved the house it was a perfect hideaway yet only yards from the lively village square. We would recommend it to anyone.

Perfect location within the village, cozy, comfortable, clean and all very well equipped.
On Thursday, 15 Jun 2023
Excellent accommodation which met all our needs. Hawkshead is a really nice place to stay with easy access to all the main scenic locations. House was very clean, and in semi private location. During the stay, I highlighted a couple of maintenance issues (more to resolve in the weeks ahead rather than impacting our stay). However, within 24 hours a member of the Facilities Management team turned up to repair. House was very dog friendly. Enjoyed our stay and created a good impression on the quality of accommodation available throughout the Lakes.
On Friday, 02 Jun 2023
Had a brilliant stay in the cottage. Was stylish, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Cottage is ideally located in the beautiful village of Hawkshead with shops, pubs and restaurants in close proximity.

A fantastic little cottage . Everything you could ask for . Very well equipped. Amazing location set within the beautiful village of Hawkshead . Would highly recommend.
On Saturday, 22 Apr 2023
Had an amazing 5 days in the lakes made even better by the amazing accommodation. Lovely clean and cosy cottage away from any noise, everything you could ask for and more. The team were quick to respond to any queries and (although not needed during our stay) made us feel like we could contact with any issues we may encounter. Would 100% recommend to anyone!
On Saturday, 22 Apr 2023
A lovely little place in Hawkshead. We really enjoyed our week away here. Very cosy and the bath was amazing! Not too far of a drive from other nearby places too. Overall would recommend!

We stayed last year and again, exactly what we wanted! Absolutely perfect!

We enjoyed the first break we have had in three years.

Corner Cottage is a beautifully presented cottage in a lovely village surrounded by the most stunning scenery. It has all modern fixtures and fittings whilst still retaining lots of old features and cosy cottage charm. It was spotlessly clean , well equipped and the boot room is ideal if you have dogs. There were numerous walks from the door and also great pubs and cafes. We felt extremely at home and would definitely visit again.
On Saturday, 22 Apr 2023
Very nice place to stay in the heart of Hawkshead, clean, easy to deal with and ideal for couples.
On Saturday, 22 Apr 2023
Just returned from a fantastic stay in this wonderful cottage. The cottage is so roomy and really well equipped (remember to take some Tassimo pods). It really is good as the photos show and anyone that knows Hawkshead will know what a great location this is just behind The Honeypot.
On Friday, 21 Apr 2023
What a wonderful cottage. Kitchen has everything & more that you would need. The bath is to die for, spent a bit too long in there really but don’t forget to take your bubble bath. Village is great, few shops n pubs, gets quite busy. Some great dog & human walks. Only bad things are 1.the road there, it’s very narrow so we didn’t venture out at night. 2 the garden is not enclosed, my dogs will only do their business on grass so had to take them out every few hours (for me this was not a problem, but think it would be for some) Would definitely recommend as a lovely romantic weekend away
On Monday, 03 Apr 2023
We loved our time here and will be coming back soon!
On Saturday, 25 Feb 2023
We had the best week exploring the beautiful Lake District, and it was so lovely to have a cosy and clean cottage to come back to after a days adventuring, I would definitely book to stay again!

Lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful location. Ideal for walks and soaking up the peace and tranquillity of the lakes countryside. Michelle and team were responsive, friendly and helpful. Recommended.

Corner house is a beautifully presented property with some lovely touches. We enjoyed the bath, really comfy bed and the coat/boot room was ideal for our dog and wet gear. The prosecco and parking permit on arrival was also appreciated. Some additional details could improve the overall guest experience - hand soap/shower gel for the bathroom, some extra towels, coffee pods for the coffee machine and some recommendation of where to access additional logs for the wood burning stove.
On Saturday, 01 Oct 2022
Perfect location, the village is picturesque. The cottage is so cosy, clean and everything we had hoped! Thank you for the lovely stay.
On Saturday, 17 Sep 2022
Corner House is a quiet, private and cosy place to stay, set in beautiful Hawkshead, so close Windermere, Coniston and other local sites. Check in was extremely easy, the hosts were helpful and quick to respond during our stay, and there was plenty of parking nearby. The local shops, tea room and pubs just around the corner, as well as the cobbled streets and Beatrix Potter museum made it a lovely place to spend the weekend. There are also plenty of public footpaths starting from nearby the cottage which were perfect for dog walks. We'd love to stay here again.

Fabulous home in a wonderful location. So near to some incredible locations. We were spoilt for choice for where to eat in an evening, food and hospitality was great, so many lovely places with great food.

Just back from a fabulous weeks stay in Corner House. The cottage was beautifully appointed and immaculately clean. Lakeland Retreats were great from start to finish and with a couple of nice touches in the cottage. Hawkshead is a lovely village with some fantastic shops and pubs. It is located within easy reach of many attractions but far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle of the busy towns.

Perfect cottage - beautifully presented. Fantastic location. Would recommend this air bnb to anyone.
On Saturday, 11 Jun 2022
Highly recommend! Corner House was immaculate and very well presented. It is very well placed within the village for walks & pubs and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!
On Tuesday, 07 Jun 2022
We had a great stay in Corner House, we would definitely recommend this cottage to couples. It’s a lovely cosy cottage with a great bedroom, lovely bathroom and the kitchen is really well appointed. All very new, clean and warm. Communication with the holiday company was fast. Hawkshead is lovely, but worth knowing that when we stayed all pubs were short of staff so food was very limited, we needed to have booked a table a few weeks before your stay which we only did for our first night so couldn’t eat in Hawkshead the rest of the week.
On Saturday, 30 Apr 2022
This is a perfect place in the Lake District for somebody wants to stay a small, quiet and pretty village. The accommodation is immaculate and very well functioned. I strongly recommend it.
On Saturday, 02 Apr 2022
Beautiful cottage in a perfect location. Brilliantly positioned for plenty of walks in the stunning surrounding areas. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could need!
On Tuesday, 15 Mar 2022
A fabulous cozy cottage in a really nice village . . . The cottage was a perfect base for a walking holiday in the lakes. The cottage was very well equipped and it had everything to make our stay home from home. We loved the log burner and the large utility area in the cottage which was great for drying out walking gear after heavy rain on our first day out on the fells/hills. The Queens Head pub nearby was a great place for a drink and a meal in the evening. I would recommend this cottage. Thank you for the use of your cottage, we had a wonderful weekend break.
