This was a last minute booking to find this gem in the Lake District. This is a Bed and Breakfast hotel with a few rooms. We requested a room with 2 bed and beds were comfortable and the room was good sized, didn't feel cramped. The bathroom was attached, small but had a good sized shower. The views were stunning...

What a fantastic location, set up high and fairly isolated with stunning views out over lake Windermere. Our room was a good size and clean and comfortable, but full of spiders, expected when in such a rural area, but not ideal for arachnaphobes! Basic toiletries provided, very friendly and helpful hosts,

Decided that we needed a short break to the Lakes and made the right decision when we booked Hawkrigg for three nights. The bedroom was clean and tidy with a splendid view over Windermere. We thoroughly enjoyed the tasty breakfast which set you up for the day ahead. Only minutes away from the ferry across to Bowness and Hawkshead and... More

I would recommend this guest house to anybody! We had a wonderful stay here and would definitely return! The building overlooks Lake Windermere giving you gorgeous views every time you look out of your windows. These views alone make this guest house worth staying at! The room itself was perfect for what we needed. Wardrobe, drawers, bedside cabinets, TV and... More

Hawkrigg Guest House what a wonderful place to stay! We were in the middle of a 10 week trip from Australia and Hawkrigg Guesthouse in Far Sawrey was a great stopover. Spotless room with a beautiful view of Lake Windermere, a truly delicious breakfast with delightful owners Emma and Mark making us feel "at home". Access to a fridge and... More

After taking a wrong turn and driving down a long narrow windy lane we finally found Hawrigg and the exterior is very beautiful. We arrived after 5ish and it was dark. The key to our room was left on the side with a note which we did not mind at all. Our room was smaller than what we thought it... More

Wrong side of the lake??? I wasn't aware that there is a right and a wrong side! Perhaps in your opinion, but how is that a review of our guest house?? More
