A Lovely Place To Stay In Hawkshead!
This place is totally adorable! The decoration made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. The environment around the house are beautiful and peaceful. Especially, the lovely garden beside the house. Moreover, the staffs were kind and helpful. Thay gave the advices and information for traveling around the Lake districts. This is the appropriate house to stay for take a rest on holiday.

What A Find !
If you are looking for the ideal spot to visit in the Lake District then this is the ideal place to stay,the warm welcome to School House Cottage is endorsed with the offer of refreshment, the proprietors also have a small tea room in the large well kept garden where the cakes on offer would win first prize in any bake off competition so afternoon tea takes on a new delight. Our room was light and airy, decorated to a high standard and extremely comfy.The breakfast menu offers a good range of fare from the full english to freshly cooked porridge, the full english was cooked and served to perfection.The only dissapointment was having to leave, will we be back? YOU BET.

The Most Comfortable Yet
Having worked our way round Scotland we came to the Lake District and were delighted to find this wonderful B&B in the beautiful surroundings of Hawkshead. The rooms were warm and comfortable and Steve and Sharon couldn\'t have been more helpful. Our only regret is that we couldn\'t stay more than one night due to our itinerary. Recommend this to everyone.

Hawkshead Revisited
We arrived tired and hot and the difficulty in finding the entrance to our B&B made us all the more weary. (Soon to be remedied I understand ).



Then the proprietor\'s smiley face emerged and from then on it was sheer bliss.



A wonderful clean, bright and cosy room with a particularly comfortable bed, followed by a cooked breakfast to set one up for the day.



A great visit and one that we would like to experience again if we are ever in that area.

Top Marks For School House Cottage
Our end of term report puts this b and b at the top of the class.



The subjects - breakfast, accommodation and value for money - make it a standout destination for a relaxing break in the Lakes.



The delightful owners, Steve and Sharon and Steve’s mum Mavis went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay and really do make you feel part of the family.



Afternoon tea and cakes on return from long hikes were more than welcome.



Steve’s cooked to order breakfast set you up for the day and just watching Mavis enjoying her stint as head gardener was enough to tire you out in time for a good night’s sleep.



We look forward to going back for a new term!

Really Enjoyable Stay
This was our first experience of a B&B so were a little apprehensive. So pleased we chose this place. The location is great, no passing traffic to wake you up early in the morning but also very close to the centre of Hawkshead so you can easily make your way into the village on foot. We were made to feel very welcome by Sharon & Steve, the room we had was bigger than expected which was a lovely surprise and probably has one of the most powerful showers I\'ve ever used. The house is set in a lovely garden which we were lucky enough to have a view of from our bedroom window. Also in the garden there is a lovely summer house, which with the help of a good heater, was even warm on a cold October evening, so is a nice place to relax, there is even cake to be found in there! Probably one of the favourite things here was the very tasty breakfast we had each morning, made from locally sourced ingredients, and the toast made from Steves homemade bread is to die for! The portions are great too, really sets you up for the day.



Would definitely recommend booking here if you like a warm welcome, comfy room and a scrumptious breakfast.

We had a welcome drink and chocolate cake in the living room with our hosts and shared travel stories. The bedroom was large with a comfortable double bed and a wonderful view of the garden together with an en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was made to order and comprised cereal, orange juice, coffee, a full English and fresh fruit. The brown toasted bread is to die for!!! The B&B is at the far end of the village so it isn't noisy when the pubs close and is only a pleasant 5 minute walk to the centre. This will be my B&B of choice the next time I am in the Lake District as Steve and Sharon couldn't do enough to ensure their guests have a great stay with them.

Stott Park Bobbin Mill - Newby Bridge - Museum

Stott Park Bobbin Mill - Newby Bridge - Museum

Distance 6.33 miles (10.13 km)
A working mill built in 1835, Stott Park created the wooden bobbins vital to the spinning and weaving industries of Lancashire. Typical of mills across Cumbria, today you can see industry from a bygone age and watch as bobbins are made using the mill's original machinery. Although Stott Park worked continuously until 1971, it remains almost identical to its Victorian appearance of 100 years ago. With its Victorian machinery originally powered by a waterwheel and steam engine, Stott Park used birch, ash and sycamore to make wooden tool handles as well as bobbins. The mass of belts which fill the building still drive the cutting, boring and finishing machines than turn long thin poles into bobbins. You can watch a bobbin being made, and take it home as a souvenir.
