This was our ninth visit to the Hawksmoor and it was still as fab as ever. This guest house is second to none. Phillippa, Trevor and the staff are always so friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
On arrival you are shown to your room where you are offered tea or coffee and the most delicious shortbread. The rooms are furnished to a high standard and are spotlessly clean,as are the gorgeous bathrooms where you'll find complimentary shampoo, shower gel, hand and body lotion etc. Every room has a flat screen tv and dvd player. There's a list of dvds which you can borrow free of charge.
Breakfast is served between 8am and 9.30am in the dining room. As well as a full English breakfast, you can have cereal, fresh fruit salad, toast on its own or with scrambled egg etc, porridge, yoghurt, fruit juice and every day they also have their specials too. Delicious!
The guest house is situated half way between Windermere and Bowness, so central for everything. If you're planning a trip to the Lake District, don't hesitate, book The Hawksmoor, you definitely won't be disappointed.
Thanks again to Trevor, Phillipa and the gang. See you soon.xx
Room Tip: rooms 7, 12 and 14 have balconies at the rear of the property. Fantastic on a nice day.
