Arriving by car: From the M6 motorway - junction 36, take the A590 signposted to Barrow. At Greenodd, turn right on to the A5092 to Lowick Green. Turn right at Lowick Green on to the A5084 and continue along this road to Torver. Turn right at Torver on to the A593. The turning for Hoathwaite campsite is approximately half a mile on the right-hand-side of the road (immediately after a wide lay-by). Look for the green railings where you’ll see the sign for Hoathwaite Campsite. Once off the main road, take the next left turn and follow the track all the way down to the campsite.

From the central lakes - take the A593 from Ambleside to Coniston. Drive through the village and on towards Torver. Drive past the entrance to Park Coppice and on through Little Arrow (where you will see a garden with topiary on the right hand side). The turning for Hoathwaite campsite is the next turning on the left (shortly before a wide lay-by on the left hand side of the road). Look for the green metal railings where you’ll see the sign for Hoathwaite Campsite. Once off the main road, take the next left turn and follow the track all the way down to the campsite.

We recommend that you don't use your Sat Nav to find Hoathwaite Campsite.

Arriving by bus: The X12 service runs between Ulverston and Coniston, stopping off at Torver on the way. After alighting at Torver you will have a one mile walk to the campsite - be careful on the main road from Torver as there is no footpath. Regular train services run to Ulverston from the West Coast mainline via Lancaster. If you're heading to Hoathwaite from the Windermere direction, then the 505 bus service will take you to Coniston where you can connect to the X12 service down to Torver and walk from there.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
