Hawkshead is still the same tiny village of higgledy piggledy houses, archways & squares beloved by William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter and is in the heart of the English Lake District.

Visitor to this picturesque and largely unspoilt Lake District village will enjoy all that the Old School House B & B has to offer.

The Small ancient village is close to Esthwaite Water, Lake Windermere, Coniston & Ambleside. Hawkshead is regarded as the centre of Beatrix Potter country - her former home Hilltop is just outside the village and open to visitors in the spring and summer months.
