About Smithy Cottage

Smithy Cottage, set in the popular village of Hawkshead and much-loved for its historical links to William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, truly brings something for all.

Entering through the neat courtyard-style garden with comfortable patio furniture, the farmhouse inspired kitchen awaits. The well-equipped kitchen provides everything you could need for a self-catering stay and the large dining table is the perfect place to host a home-cooked breakfast or an evening of family games.

The focal point of this Lakeland cottage is without doubt the recently refurbished lounge. With subtle hues, soft furnishings and comfortable seating for the whole family, this cosy space creates the perfect home from home atmosphere. Kicking back and relaxing has never been as easy with modern day conveniences to hand.

After a day on the fells, you’ll find two sizeable double bedrooms on the first floor, both having access to the shower room on the same level. A third twin bedroom is located on the second floor and is conveniently located opposite the house bathroom, featuring the star of the show – a deep bath. The perfect place to soak away those aches and pains.

Parking at Smithy Cottage is for 1 vehicle only and by way of permit in the local car park, just a short walk from the cottage. We also have an allocated space to the rear of the property for short stay unloading. Additional parking passes can be purchased locally.
