Hawkshead is a very attractive village close to Grizedale Forest between Coniston and Windermere. Many buildings are as early as the 1600s. It consists of a maze of alleys and squares. Hawkshead was an important wool market in medieval times. Later, poet William Wordsworth was educated in the grammar school and Beatrix Potter lived nearby in the early 20th century. The opening of the National Park gave tourism a boost, though traditional farming continues around the village. Nowadays it is highly dependent on the tourist trade and much of the property is owned by the National Trust. Not surprisingly Hawkshead is well provided with guesthouse/bed and breakfast (b&b) accommodation as well as hotels and inns.
