We wanted to stay somewhere quiet in the Lake District, and Hawkshead fits that bill! A tiny, sleepy village with a series of windy, twisty streets. Ann Tysons appealed to us when we found it online because it was so quaint, and had such an interesting history with Williams Wordsworth. We arrived a later than expected, due to not realizing the roads through the Yorkshire Dales would be so tricky on our way across to the Lake District. Mrs. Watson met us in the alley way, and hopped in to show us where to park, then ran from pub to pub with us trying get one of them to serve us food so late . (All the pubs there stop food service at 9PM), She was very concerned to help us with this....so very helpful! Our room opened right out onto the street, and was an old "split-door" so we could swing the top open and look out into the cute little street! The room had big beams on the ceiling and a nook that was obviously a big old fireplace. The room and bathroom were roomy. There was a musty smell, and some mildew in the bathroom, so if you have an allergy problem, perhaps request a room in another part of the house. Breakfast was outstanding. John , the owner was very helpful and suggested things in the District for us to do, and even gave us some coupons for a boat ride. we enjoyed our stay here, and would definitely go back.
