Property Description

Delightfully situated in secluded and peaceful surroundings, just a quarter of a mile from the heart of Hawkshead village, Yew Bank stands in almost 2 acres of landscaped gardens and woodland with superb views over Esthwaite Water towards Claife Heights, Latterbarrow and Kirkstone Pass. Dating from 1880 and adjoining another cottage, this stylish and spacious Lakeland residence has double glazing and is well furnished and equipped to provide very comfortable accommodation.
The house has associations with Beatrix Potter, who lived in nearby Sawrey, and is well known for her children’s books featuring Peter Rabbit and his friends, but less well known as a successful Lakeland farmer and breeder of Herdwick sheep. The garden, enclosed by stone walling, has a patio, generous lawns and shrubs and a little bridge over a stream, making this a quiet retreat in a truly majestic location.
In nearby Hawkeshead, one of the Lake District’s most attractive villages, there are narrow streets, whitewashed cottages and little alleyways and courtyards, as well as an excellent selection of shops, inns and restaurants. The old grammar school, famous for its former pupil William Wordsworth, is now a museum, and the Beatrix Potter Gallery (NT) can also be found here. On the doorstep is some of the Lake District’s finest scenery.
Windermere is the largest lake in England, best appreciated by taking a boat trip from Bowness to Ambleside. Also within easy reach is beautiful Coniston Water with the village of Coniston (5 miles) nestling beneath the fells, and The Old Man of Coniston, rising majestically above. Overlooking the lake is the former home of another of Lakeland’s famous inhabitants, the influential artist and writer, John Ruskin, which is now a museum commemorating his work. Shops and pub ½ mile.

Living room with large picture windows and gas ‘living-flame’ fire in antique surround. Dining room. Small sitting-room. Modern fitted kitchen with breakfast bar. Pitch pine stairs to first floor: Double bedroom with Lakeland views. Two twin bedrooms with views to the fells. Bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet. Shower room with toilet.

  1. Very spacious, comfortable house in an excellent location. Wonderful views over Esthwaite. Oct 2011.
  2. The setting of the property had even more spectacular views than the pictures showed. We couldn’t make use of the gardens and patio due to the wet weather but we could see that they were beautiful. It is a house our party could completely relax in. Sept 2011.
  3. Perfect location for access to Hawkshead just 10 mins walk away either via public footpath to the church or along the road (no footpath though at roadside for a short stretch). April 2011.
  4. A pleasant house in good position. Dec 2010.

  17. Village of Hawkshead is really nice; great local & easy walks to be had right out the front door of the cottage; like others this is a great cottage for a family reunion of 8 - 10 people. Dining room excellent for such a gathering. Sept 2008.
  18. This was a beautiful house with stunning views to wake up to, near enough to walk to the pubs but quiet enough to be part of the surroundings. Stair gate for the young ones too. We have been. March 2008.

  20. We were very pleased with the large dining room which made our evening meals comfortable and enjoyable. The house was light and spacious. We visit the Lake District for a walking holiday every year in March or April, always renting a house or cottage and this was the best property so far. March 2007.
