It has been 6 years since we last visited Shepherd's Cottage. Some things have changed, but the important things haven't. The warmth of the welcome from Lisa & Mike, the cosiness of the cottage and the charming, ever-changing views across Esthwaite Water. The neighbours - cattle in one field and sheep to the front - still provide a daily story... More

I stayed in a lot of Bed and Breakfasts on my recent trip to the UK but this was my favourite place. Lisa is an excellent host and we felt instantly at home: the farm exudes a welcoming air and the rooms are super comfortable. The breakfasts are terrific and there is a traffic-free path into Hawkshead itself which makes... More

We stayed here for one night but wish it could have been more. The location was amazing in the heart of the Lake District away from the tourist areas. The views were incredible. The property is also located in easy walking distance to hawkshead which is a stunning village. We were greeted with tea and cake which we had in... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 2 nights at the end of January, for a little break since our university exams had finished. Throughout our visit, Lisa made us feel very welcome and kindly provided us with tea and cake after our long journey, which we enjoyed in the log burning lounge, simply gorgeous! The breakfasts were lovely, with... More

I decided to stay here with my 8 year old daughter as it was a working farm in a nice location. There weren't many reviews to go on but once I had spoken to Lisa at the time of booking and I had read the few reviews my instinct said it would be good. Our stay totally exceeded our expectations.... More

We stayed here for just one night but would definitely return. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, particularly over our arrival time. The bedroom both had their own separate bathrooms just across the landing and bathrobes were provided. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and equipped. The views from the property were charming. It was also a lovely walk... More

My mom and I stayed here a few weeks ago, and it is quite possibly our favorite of all the places we stayed in England. We were not so sure that would be the case, when we arrived in Hawkshead by bus, far from the busling tourist towns of Windermere and Ambleside. Not sure exactly how to get to the... More

My wife and I together with our friends John & Lyn stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of March. We had both rooms of course, which meant we also had exclusive use of the dining room and lounge. We decided to have dinner most nights which Lisa cooked to order and we were able to supply our own drinks... More

A lovely B&B with views down to Esthwaite Water. The whole house is beautifully decorated and a wood burning stove, cake and coffee were waiting for me after a long drive north. Lisa really looks after her guests and was happy to put on an early Sunday breakfast to cater for mad runners!
