Set in the magnificent Vale of Esthwaite in the heart of the English Lake District, Hawkshead is a truly historic and wonderfully picturesque village characterised by its cluster of whitewashed houses, archways and alleyways, courtyards and squares.
A prosperous mediaeval wool town, its rich history includes important connections with the poet William Wordsworth and children's story writer and illustrator Beatrix Potter and each have muesums devoted to them within the village.
The centre of Hawkshead is closed to cars which enhances its character and makes wandering around its narrow winding streets especially rewarding.
The surrounding countryside promises many delightful walks - from gentle strolls to rugged hill climbing - and some excellent fishing.
Stay in one of the village's hotels, guest houses or inns, or camp at the edge of the village and you will be perfectly placed to visit the whole of Lakeland. Population 2,000
