Betty Fold
This is in a peaceful location outside the village of Hawkshead. Set in a beautiful hillside garden, the apartment is on the ground floor of the owners' house with its own private entrance. The apartment is very well equipped with everything we needed for our Lakeland holiday including excellent WiFi. Our dog was made very welcome too and enjoyed exploring the garden and the many walks within reach

The setting of The Apartment, Betty Fold and the view were superb. The owner was welcoming and very helpful. The garden was wonderful. Everything worked well and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Even the weather was good!

very comfortable apartment in a gorgeous location,great views,great walking and only one mile from Hawkshead village
This apartment is the ground floor of the owners lovely house which was not in anyway a problem as it has its own entrance The lovely couple who own the house are very friendl and welcoming,and offer very useful tips 're where to go locally, but are in no way intrusive and we did feel we had ample privacy . The view from the living area and main bedroom is spectacular, looking out over fields and the vllage of Hawkshead, with views of top of Latterbarrow in the distance We did walk into Hawkshead, but it's a bit of a hill coming back so only the once! It is very easy to access Hawkshead, Tarn Hows and nearby Coniston from Betty Fold, and Windermere and Ambleside are only a short drive away The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable, and very well maintained and clean and it was lovely and cosy to return to after a long walk.We took our dog and we really enjoyed long walks with him,and will hopefully return here in summer months.There is one double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom and shower, and at other side of the living area a second twin bedrooms with own bathroom, so good for 2 couples or a family Great WiFi in this apartment ,which is great as this can often be either non existent or patchy in rental properties in my experience .Plenty of storage space sand clearances,only asm point I know but it helps. I would not hesitate to highly recommend this to anyone who is considering a Cumbrian break, we were there during the awful weekend of the floods and although Betty Fold and Hawkshead were thankfully not flooded the owners were so very helpful and reassuring about which routes to take and places to avoid.Lovely people and.a lovely apartment .

Plenty of space. It is very private but you feel part of a family with very good cultural, musical and local interests. It was great that our dog was welcome.
