Romantic Hideaway For Two Set In The Heart of Beatrix Potter Territory

Hawkshead Hideaway is just that; a perfect piece of calm, somewhere special to relax, unwind and spend precious time together. Magnificent cruck beams are proudly displayed throughout the apartment and large picture windows and skylights allow the light to flood through and give way to wonderful views of the fells. Quality furnishings ensure your every comfort and are married perfectly with a calming colour palette and well-chosen accessories to create a soothing, peaceful atmosphere.

Roger Ground is a tiny hamlet less than a ten-minute walk from the centre of picturesque Hawkshead, allegedly taking its name from the local Parish Priest of Hawkshead, Roger who lived here at the main house in the 1600s. The cobbled square and ginnels of the village are lined with whitewashed cottages, interesting galleries and tea rooms and several traditional Inns. The local Co-op supermarket is well stocked for your day to day supplies and a larger selection of shopping can be found in nearby Ambleside, just 5 miles away. Hawkshead Hideaway can be let in conjunction with her sister property to accommodate up to 12 guests.


Adorned With Exposed Beams And Boasting Fabulous Views Of The Fells

Nestled behind her larger, Grade II listed neighbour, Hawkshead Hideaway is accessed via a private, well-tended garden and by way of an external wooden staircase. (do take care in wet and icy weather)

Once inside, the quality accommodation is all on one level, the entrance hall offering plenty of space for hanging your outdoor equipment. The large, loft-style open plan living space has large picture windows that draw you in to soak up the magnificent views of the surrounding countryside and fells beyond. A well-equipped kitchen has everything you’ll need to properly self-cater if you choose, the dining table strategically placed in front of the window.  Deep cushioned sofas are perfect for snuggling on in front of the TV and light floods through the romantic king-size bedroom dressed with quality mattress and linens to ensure a restful sleep. The large shower room has a powerful shower to help soothe your muscles after a hard day on the fells.

Outside, a well-tended wall garden has furniture provided and private parking is available for one car behind Roger Ground House.

  • John says:

    Fantastic location for walking right from the door. The place was very clean and tidy, beautifully decorated and lots of info on the area to hand. The view from the lounge window was spectacular and we loved gazing over to the mountains in the evening. There is a very short walk across the field footpath into Hawkshead which was handy. We had bikes with us and it was easy to keep them locked up under the steps up to the upper barn. There was a very generous welcome pack for us when we arrived, we will certainly look to go back here again.

  • Emily says:

    Lovely little place a short walk from Hawkshead and a good location for places on Windermere & Coniston. The apartment was clean and well equipped, and nice and quiet except for the fire alarm which seems to be linked to the one in the main building – got a very loud wake up call seemingly because of some burnt toast downstairs! The shower is better than mine at home, which I always appreciate when going away. WiFi was okay when it worked, but there were long periods in the evening where it was spotty wouldn’t connect at all. Overall a great place to stay in a very nice rural location, but still with many of the conveniences of home.

  • George says:

    My stay at the Hideaway was great. Really nice flat with awesome views out over the hills. Only a short stroll into Hawkshead so you don’t have to pay for parking. Quick drive up into the forest. Nice and private. Good amenities provided. Would recommend.

  • Stephen says:

    Simply lovely Literally just what the doctor ordered. Quiet but handy location. Good facilities , beams could be an issue especially in the bathroom but did not detract from a lovely stay. The addition of a beautiful garden was a bonus

  • Anselm says:

    It was awesome! Thx so much!

  • Brenda Metcalfe says:

    A fabulous apartment, with wonderful views, within walking distance of Hawkshead. The apartment was spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable with everything you could need for an enjoyable stay. We loved waking up to the fantastic views of the mountains. You can walk from the door to Tarn Hows, Wray Castle, Esthwaite Water and many more locations. The apartment has a gorgeous cottage garden and from the garden gate you can walk through the fields into Hawkshead and avoid the road. There is a high quality of fixture and fittings, and everything is provided for right down to binoculars and a bird spotting book. We have now had 2 wonderful stays here and look forward to returning later in the year.

  • Linda says:

    Comfortable accommodation in a lovely location, just 10 minute walks to Hawkshead and to Esthwaite Water. Beautiful views from lounge. Parking very tight when guests are in property below. Also linked fire alarm with that property.

  • Ann says:

    Fantastic location. Luxurious inside with lovely welcome pack. A place to relax after a good walk or boat trip. Short walk to 3 village pubs with nice food. Highly recommended

  • Neil says:

    Great location for getting out and about in The Lake District. A few really nice walks from the apartment and many other beautiful places a short drive away. The apartment is comfortable and has everything you need in a very quiet location but just a few minutes walk into Hawkshead with it’s pubs and amenities.

  • Lucy says:

    Thanks for a wonderful week in Hawkshead. Gorgeous little apartment for a couple. Perfect place for us to explore the lakes and short walk into the village with lovely cafes and pubs. Thank you for the welcome hamper, we loved the vanilla and raspberry jam!

  • Sam says:

    A lovely little apartment with incredible views of the mountains. A clean, comfortable and cosy stay with lots of useful additions and some lovely touches to arrive to. The original beams are quite low so watch your head if you’re over 5’9”!

  • Molly says:
