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...

We spent a great week at Hawkshead Hideaway, an independent apartment under the roof of Roger Ground House which can be rented separately or together. This apartment is really cosy with its original authentic beams and its comfortable interior. We particularly loved the view over...More

Just got back from a wonderful week staying at Roger Ground House with my family and good friends. I first stayed here 38 years ago, so to view it again through adult eyes was great. Hawkshead is a perfect village for a base to explore...More

Very well equipped, warm, lovely scenery, nice fires etc. Stayed in the hideaway which was excellent, our friends were in the main house and that was ideal for dinners and chatting. Just mind your head on all those low beams!More

Thank you for your complimentary review! I’m really pleased to hear that you had a great holiday away with friends @RGH & Hawkshead Hideaway! Both cottages have low beams, in part - it seems the Cumbrian Tudors were somewhat vertically challenged, but it does make...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the essentials: Co-Op supermarket (open until 10pm, with ATM/cash point), cafes, GP, pharmacy, post office (cash can be withdrawn over the counter). There are many independent shops: hairdressers, delis, art studios and of course all things Beatrix Potter! The visitor info file at RGH details lots of recommendations of what to do/explore/eats/drinks/walks.
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.
