RGH is a spacious house with two lounges, each with a wood burning stove. The three larger bedrooms each have a super king-size zip-link bed, which splits to offer 2 single beds; this makes for a very flexible booking for a large family group. There are fabulous views from the large mature cottage gardens and orchard garden, perfect for the little ones to run around in. Bicycles can be locked to garden fencing.More

About the neighbourhood
RGH is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, within the Lake District National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The rural hamlet of Roger Ground is a haven of peace and tranquility, yet it is only a 5 minute walk to Hawkshead, 'The Prettiest Village in the Lake District'. The village has 4 brilliant pubs with restaurants; all welcome and cater well for children. Hawkshead has the essentials: Co-Op supermarket (open until 10pm, with ATM/cash point), cafes, GP, pharmacy, post office. There are many independent shops: outdoor stores, hairdressers, delis, an art gallery and of course all things Beatrix Potter! The visitor info file at RGH details lots of recommendations of activities, where to explore, eats, drinks, walks etc.
Getting around
My best recommendation is to leave the car idle all week, and explore on foot! Walks start straight from the garden gate. The surrounding area has some of the best walking in the Lakes. RGH is along the lane from Grizedale Forest and is perfect for walks to Coniston, the Langdales & Tarn Hows (Tarn Hows is especially good for children to toddle around, for baby buggies & the elderly - as it is low level walking with excellent paths). There is an OS map of South East Lakes and walking guide books at RGH for your convenience.
