Lovely cottage, nice quiet area
Host was completely unresponsive to emails but luckily no big issues.
There is no freezer don’t buy ice cream otherwise you will try to eat it all in one night like we attempted.
Otherwise it was lovely.
Hi Tasha, you sent one email about changing dates which unfortunately I missed but indicated it wasn't a problem, as far as I know there were no issues. I do include my phone number in the House Manual and ask people to contact me by phone or text if an issue. We also have indicated on the website that there is no freezer currently, although we have recently purchased a replacement which will be available from the 4th of April. Regards, Tim
Outgate is a cluster of houses a short drive from Ambleside and and a short walk from the village of Hawskhead in the heart of the National Park. The Outgate Inn is closeby and provides hearty meals. The renowned Drunken Duck Inn at Barngates provides a favourite venue for special occasions. In the higgledy-piggledy, car-free streets of Hawkshead can be found several pubs and numerous shops as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, and the Grammar School attended by WIlliam Wordsworth. Beatrix Potter's house itself, is just a couple of minutes down the road. Cut over the hill and past Tarn Hows to Coniston to enjoy Ruskin's house, travel down the lake in style on a solar or steam ship, or slip back over to the Langdale Valleys, for some of the most special views the Lakes has to offer.
An enchanting place at any time of the year.
Other Activities: National Trust , Go-Ape, food, cinema, rock climbing, canoeing, off-roading

About Tim Hulse
Tim & Beverly have loved the Lake District since visiting together as students to enjoy the walking and scenery. Tim later spent some time working in the Lakes. Now living in Chester, with a 7 year old son and a 6 year old black lab, they get up to the Lakes as often as they can - but prefer the off-seasons when it is quieter.
Tim Hulse purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Tim Hulse chose Hawkshead
For years we had dreamed of having a place in the Lakes, and just happened to be driving past The Granary & noticed the 'for sale' sign. We loved it right away, even though we had only seen in through the windows, and put an offer in before we'd even been through the door!
What makes this Cottage unique
Fantastic location, so much within easy reach including wonderful walks in the Coniston fells, Langdales, Fairfield, Helvellyn etc. etc. Only 15 minutes walk to Hawkshead and 10 minutes drive from Ambleside but far from the hustle and bustle. We love how quiet it is at night, sitting on the back step listening to the owls hooting. It really feels away from it all.
