FOUR STAR GOLD, VisitEngland-Rated, Roger Ground House is a traditional Lakeland country house that dates from the Tudor Period. The house is thought to be the former home of Roger, Minister to the Parish of Hawkshead in the 1600s and the hamlet of Roger Ground is reputedly named after him.
RGH completed a massive refurbishment in 2017, but retains many beautiful original features; a traditional Lakeland doorway, oak and slate floors, oak panelled walls and beams, fireplaces, a Georgian spice cupboard and what is thought to be the original oak Tudor staircase. This spacious Lakeland house makes it easy for a large family group to relax and unwind after a hard day on the Fells. Both sitting rooms have cosy wood-burning stoves, and the bright and airy Georgian sitting room has a view of the pretty south-facing cottage garden. The dining room seats 12 in comfort; perfect for family gatherings and celebrations! The gardens and grounds have been re-landscaped and are a delight at any time of the year! Why not take a glass of wine into the Orchard Garden and listen to the sounds of the countryside; lively bird song and the soft bleating of our neighbour’s sheep…..now that’s headspace!
