Nestled in an area of outstanding beauty, close to Kendal and Windermere, Hawes Bank is the ideal base for exploring the Lake District, whatever your ambitions. With many of Wainwright's classic walks and some excellent gastropubs within easy reach, it is easy to see why our guests come back. After a bracing day on the fells or a lovely stroll along the nearby River Kent, Hawes Bank is the ideal house to come home to, kick off your boots in the boot room and then relax in front of an open fire in the lounge or library before enjoying a convivial meal in the large, well equipped kitchen.
Hawes Bank is an 1840's gentleman's residence lovingly restored by it's owners. With the emphasis on period detail many of the furnishings have been handmade locally by craftsmen. Downstairs rooms are light and airy with original stone and wood floors. Upstairs there are four large and stylish bedrooms, all with gorgeous views. The bathroom with sumptuous roll top bath is just the place to unwind, while the power shower in the second bathroom has drawn rave reviews from exhilarated guests.
Despite it's peaceful location, communication links are excellent with the M6 just 10 minutes drive and Oxenholme station, on the main London to Glasgow fast train line, a mere five minutes away. There are plenty of fishing, horseriding and cycling opportunities in the area.
With a large garden, parking for up to five cars and flexible, quality accommodation, Hawes Bank is truly a holiday property of distinction and will be long remembered by it's guests, "What a stylish and elegant house, in a perfect location. We have enjoyed a week of hiking, swimming, River Kent and beautiful weather. We could not have asked for a better hoilday!" June 2008
