Amazing location, right in the heart of Hawkshead and close to some lovely local walks. House was a good size for our family of four and a dog, clean and well presented. Overall we had a great time though and would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Small cottage but plenty of space for 3 of us. Great location in Hawkshead, with lots of pubs and takeaways in close walking distance. Parking instructions weren't clear. Email received before we went said parking was onsite. Then an email said one permit provided for use in the permit car park next door. When we got there there was no permit, but there were 2 spaces o the kane reserved for Victory Cottage.. which was better. Double bed was comfy, but we found the single bed mattresses uncomfy for an adult as were v soft. Child had no problems with them.

The perfect location. Hawkshead is a very nice area. Good pubs and shops and short drives to many beautiful walks. The house had everything we needed, fully equipped. 2 private parking spaces, a nice garden to sit in while the sun was shining and a dog to do some sunbathing in.

Michelle’s place was perfect. The location is great, right in the centre of Hawkshead with pubs and shops a stones throw away. We had 2 dogs with us and the house was very equipped for the dogs and having the garden at the front was fab. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed. The welcome basket was much appreciated. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Lovely house. Perfect for our needs. Was great to be right in Hawkshead for the pubs and chippy (highly recommended). Also to be able to go on walks from the front door. Lovely hike through the forest to Coniston Water. The door at the bottom of the stairs was great for keeping the dog from the bedrooms! Very much appreciated having the store cupboard items already there (salt, pepper, washing up stuff etc) and the welcome basket

We had just the best few days at this lovely cottage in the absolute perfect location in Hawkshead. Just a few minutes walk from everything in the village and had many walks straight from the door so no need to be in the car at all . Great little Co-op for anything needed and good variety of tea shops/ pubs for refreshments Cottage was clean , tidy and had a well stocked and spacious kitchen. Communication was easy and owners were responsive and personable. Nothing not to like - absolutely recommend 100%

Lovely cottage, great amenities, spotlessly clean, in an ideal location. A very generous Welcome Pack was left for us on our arrival which was very much appreciated. Communication with Lakeland Retreats has been very good. This was our first booking with this holiday company but, it will not be our last. Highly recommend them!!

Great place to stay. Cosy and comfortable cottage, a stones throw from one of the many pubs in Hawkshead and the local Shops. Definitely worth visiting again 🙂
Kev

A cosy cottage, ideal for a small family. Kitchen in particular was really well prepped, with way more than the minimum pots and pans that you often get in a holiday let. We found that we had to tinker with the bath/shower and only open the tap halfway to get the hottest water, but other than that we were delighted with the place, and would definitely recommend.
Karen

A lovely house in a perfect location! It was spotlessly clean and beautifully maintained. Moments away from amenities, but super quiet. Beds were comfortable and we slept well. Ideal for a weekend in the lakes!

What a beautiful place to stay - so peacefully decorated and furnished. And we really loved living with the various paintings/artworks on the walls throughout the house - such a pleasure. Well equipped kitchen and lots of hot water too which was much appreciated several times! Wished it could have been two weeks.... Thank you!

A lovely little cottage in the village of Hawkshead. Close to pubs, gift shops and a co op for essentials. Beautiful surroundings with pleasant walks. The cottage is well arranged and offers all the home conveniences necessary for a comfortable stay. Check in was extremely simple and contactless and a delicious hamper with local goodies awaiting our arrival. All in all, a great place to stay.

A thoroughly enjoyable stay in a perfect location for enjoying the lakes. Hawkshead is a beautiful place. The house was well stocked( including welcoming gifts from local sources) and had plenty of space for us( 2 adults,14 and 7 year old). It was clean and tidy and the host was superb at communicating throughout. A great place to stay and recommended.

A lovely cottage in the centre of the village but down a small private lane. We had such a lovely stay. The enclosed front garden was great for our dog. Hawkshead is a great small village with a coop, great cafes and fab bars. There is a lovely play park for the kids. The walks from the door are so enjoyable. It is worth noting the reserved parking is in a little pull-in off the road opposite the cottage. There is just room for two cars.

We had a fab stay. Victory cottage very clean with lovely light fittings in living area. Good quality bedding and comfy beds. Thick large bath towels. Stone floors perfect for paws and the under floor heating lovely and warm... Had to open windows!An outdoor light /sensor may be needed as dark lane.We enjoyed our stay so much we booked again immediately! for next year.

Overall the cottage was pretty good, some minor things that could be easily rectified. The location was excellent and the cottage benefits from an enclosed garden. The double bed was comfortable and has nice quality bedding, though the bedrooms are a little small.The underfloor heating is a definite bonus and helps dry the clothes out!.. it was a little we on our visit.The property has a hand sanitizer dispenser which was a good idea.We felt the property could have been cleaner (mostly the bathroom and kitchen).

Lovely place and location is perfect - nice quiet lane but literally a stone's throw from the centre of Hawkshead, and well-placed to explore the lakes. The cottage has been beautifully done throughout. Had a great stay here and would happily recommend.

Spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable cottage in ideal location for Lakeland walking break. Very dog-friendly spot with walks from the door; The Queens Head is the antidote to the cat cafe in the village; dogs welcomed and treated!

A fantastic location while being quite private and secluded.... not sure how that works, but it does. Our yellow Labrador appreciated the easy access to fields for a run. A couple of minutes walk to a well stocked co-op and several pubs, with the Queens Head offering really high class food. A really cosy cottage which we would definitely book again

Lovely cottage, very clean and cosy in a fab location in Hawkshead. Easy to collect keys in Ambleside, great photo directions from Lakeland Retreats. Easy parking right outside. Lovely welcome basket on arrival. Local dairy deliver milk and other goodies on request (price list in the house). Unfortunately we don't use cow's milk so we had to pay for one bottle that was left on the first morning which we never used, but a quick phone call and they knew not to leave any more. Great for folk who are not dairy free, and they did have dairy free alternatives on their list. All in all a fab holiday and a great cottage. Would definitely book again!

Just wanted to say thanks. Victory cottage was terrific - great place in a great location and we loved hawkshead. Would definitely consider returning on any future lakes trips. Thanks very much for all your help, everything ran very smoothly. Would be interested in other properties you manage in the lakes also. Best. Simon

The cottage is clean, modern and comfortable. Great for dogs as the garden is secure. Hawkeshead is a great village with lots of amenities but much quieter than the very busy Ambleside , which is still near enough for an evening out.

Victory Cottage is perfectly placed in Hawkshead. Two minutes walk from everywhere, but most importantly has a completely enclosed garden for the well behaved doggos.

Victory Cottage is lovely. A period property that has been beautifully modernised. It is right in the centre of Hawkshead but in a quiet pedestrianised courtyard. Perfect for exploring Windermere and Coniston. Great communication from Michelle. Thank you.

A beautiful, three-floor cottage in an excellent location, just perfect for a couple. Shops (butcher's in particular), pubs, restaurants and car park (pass included) are all very close by). Check-in/out was a breeze. Highly recommended!

Lovely cottage and great location. The village is small, but lovely with a shop and a few pubs/cafes within 2 minutes' walk. A really nice stay overall, the milk dropped off by the milkman was very nice and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. We really enjoyed having some logs for the log burner as well. Would definitely stay again and would recommend for a great dog friendly place in the lake district

We just had a lovely stay at Victory Cottage - Hawkshead is a beautiful quaint village with plenty of walking and running routes that we enjoyed. The daily milk delivery was a lovely surprise and we thought the cottage was so cosy. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking and the shower was very powerful. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend!
