The property

Roger Ground House is a spacious Grade II listed Tudor-Period property which was originally home to Roger, a local priest who ministered to the Parish of Hawkshead in the 1600s. The hamlet of Roger Ground is reputedly named after him. The house which sleeps 10* is quintessentially Lakeland, with a blend of Laura Ashley and Farrow & Ball styling. A perfect holiday choice for family groups or friends. Roger Ground House is just an eight minute walk from the garden gate to Hawkshead village via countryside path. Esthwaite Water is a short stroll away and Grizedale Forest is less than a mile away. *Note that Roger Ground House can also be booked in conjunction with Hawkshead Hideaway (sleeps 2 with king size bed) which is a private apartment with its own external staircase access entrance at the side of the main house. For more details of Hawkshead Hideaway please see the separate property listing. To book the sleeps 12 option (Roger Ground House + Hawkshead Hideaway) please call us on 015394 88855 == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 3 cars.

Formal dining room with long oak table and eclectic mix of antique dining chairs. Slate-flagged steps down to a cosy Tudor lounge with wood-burning stove. Twin Bedroom with en-suite shower room, leads from the Tudor lounge and overlooks the charming front garden; a perfect bedroom for those who find too many stairs a challenge.

More information and images can be seen on the Roger Ground House website. Location Roger Ground House is nestled within the tiny hamlet of Roger Ground, between Hawkshead and the shores of Esthwaite Water, close to the western shores of Lake Windermere and the car-ferry crossing to Bowness. Hawkshead is an adorable village of cobbled streets and traditional Grade II listed Lakeland cottages. You'll find a range of local shops here, including the Honeypot Delicatessen which offers a treasure-trove of Lakeland luxuries. Spend a lazy morning in one of Hawkshead's charming tea rooms or cafes. There are several TripAdvisor-rated traditional pubs in Hawkshead and we recommend the short drive to the acclaimed Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant at Outgate. A larger selection of shops can be found in Ambleside, a few miles away and the larger on-line supermarkets will deliver your groceries to Roger Ground. Hawkshead is the perfect base for walkers, with routes, right from the doorstep, to suit all levels. Take the stunning walk to Tarn Hows, stroll on the shores of Esthwaite Water, which also has an excellent trout fishery or explore Grizedale Forest; a picturesque network of pathways, cycle tracks and sculpture trails. Why not take on Grizedale's Go-Ape, Latterbarrow, or Claife Heights, conquer the nearby Langdale Pikes or enjoy the watersports that nearby Coniston or Windermere have to offer. The surrounding landscape inspired the children's author Beatrix Potter. Her former home at Hill Top, Near Sawrey is now run by the National Trust and is open to the public. A truly magical experience for all! Directly behind Hill Top is Tower Bank Arms, a traditional pub with stone-flagged floors, Lakeland ales and a roaring fire. Bowness can be easily reached via the car-ferry across Lake Windermere, only a few miles from your door. Bowness is a bustling Lakeland town, with contemporary shops and a wide range of entertainment. Hire a boat in Bowness Bay, or take a steamer cruise on Lake Windermere to Ambleside or Lakeside. Windermere Golf Club is just beyond Bowness village.

About the location

HAWKSHEAD

Ambleside 4 miles; Kendal 24 miles.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.

Please note this property has 3 zip link beds. These will be made as a twin by default. Please contact the call center should you wish it to be a super king.
