Windermere station is the nearest. You’ll reach it by travelling to Oxenholme on the West Coast Main Line and taking a fairly regular branch line service to Windermere. The 505 service runs hourly from around 9.20 until 4.20 taking 35/40 minutes from the station and passing through Ambleside to reach Hawkshead village. Green End House is 10 minutes’ walk from the village but if you make arrangements in advance I’m more than happy to collect you.
