My daughters and I stayed at Hawksmoor for two nights in mid June 2014. The guesthouse is located in between the towns of Windermere and Bowness on the lake - about a mile to either one. We walked from the train station, which was a bit of a healthy walk with heavy backpacks, but it is certainly doable. Trevor and Philippa were very welcoming and got us set up right away in our very nice room. The room was on the ground floor and right next to the entrance and dining area, but it was still very quiet. It was set up with one king size (at least I think it was a king) and a separate twin in an alcove. However, Trevor told me it could have been set up as three singles. The bathroom was large, and included a shower, a separate bathtub, underfloor heating, and heated towel racks. Our room had two TVs, both with DVD players. The guesthouse also has numerous DVDs that you can borrow while you are staying there. It worked out great for us, as my older daughter and I wanted to watch the World Cup and my younger daughter had no interest. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate was provided in the room. A very nice breakfast was provided and cooked to order. In addition, the room comes with access to the pool and spa facilities in another hotel by the Lake. The girls loved being able to swim and use the sauna, "ice room" and "experience shower" at the MacDonald Old England Hotel. You do need to be sure that you are somewhat organized about getting things such as movies, because the owners are not available in the evenings after 6:30 (except for emergencies, of course) as they have young kids and spend their evenings with them. Probably because of that, we found the guesthouse to be very "kid-friendly". I would definitely recommend this guesthouse.
