“Very pleasant. Convienient for walks and amenities”

Being so close to the centre of Hawkeshead and yet distant enough to be peaceful is a reall benefit. My adult daughter and her boyrfriend also appreciated using the manor garden next door to sit in the sun and read in the afternoon. It's great for walkers, but also nice if you just want a relaxing do little get awayn and enjoy a bit of Lake District life holiday. The only thing is at hte current time, with COVID restricstions you do need to book for meals out and a for some takeaways and events in the village.
