Hawkshead in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... locals and holiday makers keeping them busy over the bank holiday weekend. The Kings Arms, my particular favourite, offers a great menu and a wide selection of drinks including local ales such as Windermere Pale Ale and Hawkshead Bitter. Food is served from 12.00-2.30 p.m. and then 6.00-9.30 p.m. which is standard of all four pubs in the village. Steak and ale pie with vegetable mash, leg of duck, sirloin steak - just some of the delicious food we tried at the King's Arms. Meals were priced between £8 and £14 which was quite reasonable, especially for someone who lives in London. The Queen's Head was another pub we visited a few times durin... more

I love travelling and seeing different parts of the world, but my recent trip to the Lake District over Easter reminded me of the beautiful countryside and scenery much closer to home that I often take for granted. After a lot of research into which areas of the Lakes provided the most opportunities to visit places we've always wanted to see (and which had the most links to William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter!) we decided on the beautiful village of Hawkshead.

Fortunately the tourist information was close by and we were able to ask them for advice. The woman there told us that we could walk to the cottage but that it was along a road with no pavements or we could take a bus. We decided that it was too dangerous to walk there, the road was busy and we had a child with us so we waited Read the complete review

I love the Lake District and one of my favourite towns has to be Hawkshead. Hawkshed is perfectly situated in the southern lakes area in the vale of Estwaite, just west of lake Windermere. I'm not going to give you lots of directions as you can always use the AA route finder if you need to! Parking and transport ******************** Hawkshead is a car free town. There is a large pay and display car park at the edge of the town. Parking is free for those with a disabled drivers badge. It is only a few minutes walk into the centre of the town. There are public toilets situated in the car park (free too)! There is a bus service to Hawkshead ... Read the complete review
