As part of the Georgian extension to Roger Ground House in the 1700s, Hawkshead Hideaway is charmingly full of character. This cosy attic apartment for two runs the length & breadth of the Georgian section of RGH. It retains the original oak beams (low in part) and has magnificently mesmerising views from the large picture window, towards the ‘Fairfield Horseshoe’.
