Lakeland luxury for the larger party! A sizeable and stylish historical residence right beside the popular village of Hawkshead, Roger Ground is a premier choice for those bringing extended family or a group of friends to the Lakes. Stunning scenery combines with outstanding comfort to make for your perfect Lakeland Lakelovers holiday.
This property is made up of two individual properties: Roger Ground House (Sleeps 10) plus the adjoining self-contained apartment, Hawkshead Hideaway (Sleeps 2). By booking this property you will have beds for 12 people made up of 10 in the main house and 2 in Hawkshead Hideaway which adjoins the main house but is perfectly private.
The little hamlet of Roger Ground, named after a local priest who was clearly a person of note back in the 17th Century, is an idyllic spot in which to take it easy and soak up that intoxicating Lakeland splendour. With a lovely orchard garden, you have plenty of outdoor space in which to fully unwind, and indoors a stunning dining-room with elongated table allows you to get together in comfort and style. Roger Ground is just a perfect place to gather with friends or extended family.
Rustic charm and designer touches in the bedrooms make for a truly restful and replenishing experience. The Farrow and Ball colour scheme and Laura Ashley stylings perfectly complement this elegant residence, and the many original features of the Grade II listed Tudor-period property offer an authentic sense of cosy antiquity. Original wooden beams are echoed throughout, and slate-flagged steps lead you to the wonderful Tudor lounge where you can toast your toes by the wood-burning stove.
Less than ten minutes walk away along a country path, the pretty village of Hawkshead is a charming and homely base for your holiday. A treasure trove of tempting tea-rooms and traditional coaching inns, including the King's Head Arms, await you here when hungry. And you surely will be after all the walking that the landscape round about invites! The eaves of Grizedale Forest are no more than a mile from your doorstep, and Claife Heights lie between Hawkshead and Lake Windermere, as does the pastel splendour of Esthwaite Water. In the high country to the north of the village, be sure to hunt out the incredible beauty of Tarn Hows, too.
A spacious haven in a peaceful and stunningly picturesque location, we are sure our Lakelovers will fall in love with Roger Ground!
