You really are in the heart of the Lakes and the quiet Esthwaite Valley offers some great walks for all, with gentle rambles through the fields and woods, beautiful forest walks and amazing panoramic views of Latterbarrow and Claife Heights. For more strenuous walking the nearby fells await and within a few minutes drive you will find Coniston Old Man, Wetherlam and the Langdales.
The well known and much loved Tarn Hows is a lovely walk from Hawkshead, and is a great place for a picnic, with its scenic backdrop of Coniston Old Man, around to the Langdales and the Fairfield Horseshoe. Left to National Trust by Beatrix Potter there is a reasonably level circular path suitable for pushchairs and wheel chairs with assistance.

Arguably the prettiest village in the Lake District Hawkshead is a traditional Lakeland village woth some of the country’s finest scenery just on your doorstep. There are a great choice of pubs and cafes in the village, all within a minutes walk of the Hawkshead Suites. We do recommend booking a table in the evenings for the pubs as they can be very busy.

Stayed here with my partner in April – we didn’t want to leave! This is a fairly pricey place so it’s something for special occasions, but it really is worth every penny. Lovely thick carpets, beautiful decor, mood lighting, huge comfy bed, smart TVs, log burner, fresh croissants and juice delivered in a basket every morning. Absolutely beautiful. It was the nicest place we have ever stayed. The village of Hawkshead is lovely too – it felt authentic than the much more “touristy” Ambleside (albeit still a lovely place), so I am glad we stayed there instead of in Ambleside itself – though it is still easily accessible.
Fantastic suite, jacuzzi bath was amazing and very spacious, log burner great with pre-chopped wood provided, lots of little nice extra touches. Couldn’t have been happier and will definitely visit again!
Just returned from an overnight stay at the suites. They are absolutely stunning and every last detail has been thought of, from the welcome, to the tour around the suite to the extra little surprises left for you (won’t spoil it for you) XX in the morning the delivery of your breakfast was just the best finish to a wonderful and very relaxed stay XX we will definitely be returning 🥰 Thank you x
Exactly as described with a few extra touches that made our stay unforgettable. The comfiest bed we’ve slept in made for a great nights sleep away from the children! Our expectations really were surpassed and we’ll definitely visit again soon.
I booked this for my parents in law as a mini moon. They messaged as soon as they got there and said it was amazing, then again early evening to say they what an amazing time they were having. I asked my mother in law what she liked most and she said EVERYTHING! The bath, breakfast delivery in the morning, how clean it was, the village. They are going to book it again for next year they loved it that much. I feel a bit jealous I didn’t book it for myself. 😔😂 So overall from feedback from the mother in law. Amazing place, great views, hospitality. 5* place.
Our second visit staying here and again didn’t disappoint. Every detail is amazing. The fridge full of drinks including beer and Prosecco, the little fruit hamper basket with a few chocolates in too & the breakfast basket in the morning is just lovely. Was here for valentines and it was perfect. We have stayed in both buildings (as there are two, but almost identical) the log burner is lovely especially when returning after a walk home from the village. Jacuzzi bath was amazing. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. The mirror comes out as a TV too which is fab. Couldn’t fault it. We also got a little bag when we left that had a bottle of water each, apple & chocolate! So lovely
Amazing place did not disappoint booked this stunning getaway for my parters 30th, the room was amazing the hosts were great too, already planning our next visit. This place really is the best around for luxury and privacy. Thank you x
Really great place, many special little touches that enhance your stay, great location….really close to hawkshead village, which is really nice too. Immaculate and the photos on the website do not do it justice!😁
The most amazing night away for my boyfriends birthday. This accommodation was absolutely perfect, the attention to detail, including breakfast in our hamper was just lovely and very appreciated. We couldn’t recommend Hawkshead Suites more, thank you so much! We will be back!
Had a great night away here. Gorgeous apartment with open fire and indoor hot tub. Fridge stocked with goodies and the staff lovely. Excellent Location, right in the centre of Hawkshead! Will definitely be coming again!
Just wow!! We stayed to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we honestly couldn’t have asked for more. From the moment we arrived, we received a warm and friendly welcome and it was clear that nothing was too much trouble. The suite itself was amazing. Every single thing has been thought of to ensure guests have a relaxing, stress free stay. The extra touches make it even more special. We will definitely be returning 😊
Staying at Hawkshead Suites was one of the best experiences of my life. Great location, amenities and of course the place was cleaned and tidied-up every day to the maximum. The apartment had a very nice view and a beautifully designed interior. I would highly recommend this place if you’d be interested in a luxury experience that is good value for money.
