If there’s a village in the Lakes that epitomises the word ‘picturesque’, it’s Hawkshead, with its cobbled alleys, little interlocking squares, flower-bedecked cottages and old inns. Main tourist sights are the old village school (where William Wordsworth once studied) and the Beatrix Potter Gallery, but on a sunny day you’d do best to climb the small hill to the church for sweeping village views and then stroll out of Hawkshead on any number of local walks, including to the nearby beauty spot of Tarn Hows, just a couple of miles away.
