Hawkshead

Hawkshead

Woodlands, small tarns and a landscape of farmland creates a traditional town with farmhouses and cottages, aptly named Hawkshead due to its shape. The town offers plenty of quiet walks and forest strolls and is ideal for cycling and riding also. If you want to get away from the crowds, hawkshead is a great place to go. Further south the extensive coniferous plantations of Grizedale provide ample opportunities for outdoor activities.
