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.
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.
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.
