Went to Hawkshead for 1 night early November as a last miniute trip away and luckily found The School House Cottage. Steve had been great in responding to me quickly by email to confirm availability, directions and kindly allowed us to park on his driveway.
As soon as we arived Steve and Sharon made us both a coffee and homemade chocolate cake, which was lovely, and chatted for half an hour making us feel very welcome and at home in their lovely home.
Had a great evening pub crawl in Hawkshead and good food in the Queens Head. Was home early with a bottle of fizz and Steve & Sharon were on their way out as we were coming in, so Steve brought us 2 champagne glasses and put X Factor on in the living room. We were living the dream!
Breakfast was absolutely fantastic with Steve taking our breakfast order the night before. First Class breakfast.
The only thing we would have preferred would have been a little more space in our room, as we had the cosy room which I presume is the smallest of the 3. The ensuite bathroom was within touching distance of the bed, which was a bit too close for comfort. Didn't see the other rooms but presume they had more space. Having said that we are still looking forward to our next stay at the School House Cottage as the hosts are faultless and the property and breakfast lovely.
Great stay in a perfect location in Hawkshead.
