Beautiful, Cottage Style Bungalow In Delightful Semi-Rural Location

Hillcrest at Roger Ground is a rather beautiful, cottage style bungalow set in the heart of Beatrix Potter territory offering stylish and characterful accommodation and a glorious view to match! Take in the far-reaching, south-facing views over the unspoilt countryside from the house and terrace. Enjoy the stunning vista from the strategically planned gardens towards Sawrey and in winter, across to Esthwaite Water.

Stylishly presented and flooded with light from the large picture windows, the spacious living areas are extremely versatile, allowing all of your friends and family to cosy up around the wood-burning stove and enjoy a film together or equally, enjoy a quiet corner to themselves to read a book, listen to some music, or simply to soak up the view.

The breakfast come dining room is perfect for sharing a leisurely brunch or supper and is a great setting for a celebration dinner.

The small hamlet of Roger Ground is less than a mile from the centre of Hawkshead, reached along a level, country footpath crossing sheep dotted fields towards the church and down into the village. Once you’ve walked up a thirst and an appetite, there’s a fine selection of watering holes and cafes dotted around the pretty square where you can relax and refuel before for the return leg.

Our top three must do’s in the locality are a visit to Hilltop, the former home of Beatrix Potter at Near Sawrey, a walk around the picturesque Tarn Hows and for those thrill-seekers among you, a day at Go Ape at nearby Grizedale Forest.

A Versatile Layout Affording Space, Comfort And Character

The superbly appointed, well-fitted kitchen with a host of excellent appliances and ample storage and workspace for everyone to lend a hand with dinner.

    We had a great time thank you….. hope to book again when we next plan a lakes trip! Weather didn’t deter us albeit it rained constantly

  • Rachel says:

    Excellent house, high quality and comfortable furnishings, easy living in large open plan and step free areas. Great location, quiet but within easy reach of Hawkshead and Ambleside

  • Emma Butcher says:

    Our 11 nights at Hillcrest wasn’t long enough, such a comfortable and spacious place. We loved the views from the lounge and the spacious rear bedroom, the patio, the new bathrooms, the fabulous new kitchen etc ! Thank you for the tasty welcome treats ! It was so nice to be able to have such a short walk into Hawshead where we all spent many happy hours shopping, eating and just looking around. It’s ideally placed for lots of great walks and swims in the beautiful lakes. The bungalow was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Peter says:

    A very well presented house, clean, tidy, well equipped in a lovely peaceful location.

  • Carly says:

    We loved our stay at Hillcrest. The cottage had everything we could possibly need and included a delightful welcome hamper with local produce and we were very pleased to find milk in the fridge. The house was very clean and beautifully presented. The views from the garden and the secret steps up to the balcony were stunning. The location is fantastic, the 10 minute walk through the fields opposite took us right into the centre of the town. We’d love to come back again!

  • Amanda Ward says:

    Our 2nd stay at Hillcrest. The cottage is all on one level, extremely comfortable, bright, warm and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with quality appliances. The heating is easy to control if needed and hot water is instant. Comfy beds, bath and seating/ sofas. Love the views. Outside furniture with seat cushions for al fresco meals/coffee. We will be returning next year (at least once). Highly recommended.
