We arrived late and tired having experienced the M6 at its worst. Mavis welcomed us with tea and and a chat about the B and b and the locality. The breakfasts were wonderful and Steve and Sharon were entirely cool when the entire family, including a 15 month-old descended for tea the next day.

The cottage is beautiful and right in the centre of Hawkshead, only minutes away from the pubs meaning that you can have a pint (or two) with no need to drive.

Steve, Sharon and Mavis are wonderful hosts. I really recommend that you experience School House Cottage.

We stayed in the School House Cottage with our 7 yr old son in April 2012. It was the perfect short break experience. Sharon and Steve were friendly, hospitable and more than helpful re what to do in the area. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts and sumptious, complimentary afternoon tea. We also enjoyed our chats with Mavis; Steve's mum. The location is great and is next to Wordsworth's old Grammer School. We would highly recommend this B&B and will definitely return for our next Lake District sojourn.

My husband and I have stayed in the lake district many times over many years but have never felt as comfortable as we were at the School House Cottage. Sharon and Stephen have found the perfect recipe for homely hospitality. Our room was furnished to a high standard and the bed was so comfortable. The views from our room were stunning. Our breakfast was delicious and our complimentary afternoon tea on our arrival was extra special. The chocolate cake was 'to die for'! We were made to feel welcome as soon as we set foot in the door and felt instantly relaxed and 'at home.' We are sure we will return soon to sample more tea and homemade cakes and to catch a ray or two of sun in the peaceful, picturesque garden. A wonderful way to de-stress at a very affordable price!

My husband, Paul, decided to surprise me for valentine's day with a last break before our little one arrives in April. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Steve with loose leaf tea and cake (chocolate or lemon!) - fabulous touch, especially when your 7 months pregnant!

The room we stayed in had a welcoming scent with a modern en-suite bathroom - very comfy!

The breakfast was amazing, consisting of fresh fruit, porridge and a full English (with freshly made bread/toast) - it really set us in good stead for 3 days of walking!

The location in the quaint little village of Hawshead was brilliant, with good quality food served at the local pubs. It was in close proximity to many good walking routes, which we made the most of during our stay.

We will definately recommend it to our friends!
Thanks again to Steve for making our stay so memorable!
