Lands End enjoys a peaceful, picturesque location between the lakes of Coniston and Windermere, just south of Hawkshead village. The sleepy hamlet is surrounded by a natural playground of stunning landscapes to explore; a great base for walking, biking and outdoor adventure as well as for escaping the everyday rush. On your doorstep is Grizedale Forest which has an intriguing network of walking routes, cycle paths and sculpture trails, great for children of all ages. Also located here is Go Ape zip wires for a fun for all the family day out. Lake Windermere lies to the east, and a car-ferry crossing can take you across the lake to explore the lively attractions of Bowness village. Also close by is the village of Near Sawrey, where Beatrix Potter famously lived and was inspired to write her children's stories. Visit the author's home at Hill Top and explore her favourite places; such as Esthwaite Water and Moss Eccles Tarn. Hawkshead village itself is easily reached to your north around 4 miles from the property; a charming historic village of whitewashed Lakeland cottages, car-free cobbled streets and interesting local shops. You can stock up the kitchen there, or drive just a few miles further on to Ambleside or nearby Coniston.
