Roger Ground House (Sleeps 10)

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 total refurbishment in March 2017, but retains many beautiful original features; a traditional Lakeland doorway, oak and slate floors, oak beams & oak panelled walls, fireplaces and what is thought to be the original oak Tudor staircase. This spacious Lakeland house makes it easy to relax and unwind after a hard day on the Fells. Both sitting rooms have wood-burning stoves, and the bright and airy Georgian sitting room has a view of the pretty south-facing cottage garden. 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… that’s headspace!
