Nestled in the idyllic hamlet of Roger Ground, our cozy hideaway is just a ten-minute, leisurely, traffic-free stroll away from the heart of picturesque Hawkshead. Legend has it that our hamlet was named after a beloved parish priest, Roger, who made his home here 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.

Literally had the best New Year here with my little girl….just what we needed. The Hideaway just felt so homely and spotlessly clean. Had everything you needed and more..definite 5☆ from us. We will 100% be returning in the warmer months 🙂

The hideaway’s location was perfect, very peaceful and quiet with amazing views. Warm and comfortable especially the bed and sofa. Well equipt and loved the little radio. Played Trivial Pursuit every night. The slabs before the first metal gate were so slippy. Other than that the gardens were beautiful. Thank you for the lovely gifts and milk.

Hawkshead Hideaway is a lovely, clean and tidy cottage which is a short walk to Hawkshead town. It had all e amenities one requires and is within short driving distances to the various attractions. Fabulous views of the surroundings. Host was very prompt in response to our queries and we enjoyed our stay there.

A beautiful, spacious clean cottage with beautiful views in a very peaceful location. In walking distance of Hawkshead village. Michelle was easy to communicate with, quick to respond, and very helpful.

Had a lovely few days here. Ticked every box. Easy parking. Fabulous enclosed garden which isla loved 🐾 the views from the lounge are something else ❤️. Cosy, comfortable and the little homely touches made for a wonderful stay. Was worried about the outside steps as I haven’t a head for heights but I didn’t need to worry they felt very safe. Will book again.

We had an amazing stay at Hawkshead Hideaway. It is a perfect place for 2 people. The cottage has everything and more that you need and the location is 5 star. We will definitely be recommending the Hideaway to our friends and family, in fact we already have.

The location was out of this world, absolutely beautiful surroundings and walks accessible from the door step. The small town is stunning and we really enjoyed the history of the flat and surrounds. The flat was very well equipped with cooker microwave dishwasher and utensils. The coffee machine was a bonus. Great stay overall.

Perfect indoor and outdoor space. Clean and comfortable. We have stayed in Hawkshead 4 times and this was ideal.

The perfect cottage for a getaway from every day life. The views were stunning and it was so peaceful! The path direct from the garden into hawkshead was so handy and it was a perfect location to head to some of our other favourites Windermere and Coniston. Would 100% recommend!

We absolutely loved our stay in Hawkeshead and will remember sunny evenings walking through the fields down the back track to the village forever. The view from the living room is going to be hard to beat too. Such a beautiful place to spend a few days and we did some amazing hikes. Thank you!

We have just had the most amazing stay at Michelle’s property! The place was as described, totally wonderful and in an amazing setting. The property was extremely clean and everything that was needed to hand! Will definitely be returning. If you fancy the lakes please do not hesitate to book here as it is truly a wonderful place and perfectly situated. Thanks very much Michelle! X

Amazing location, walking distance to pubs, a co op and walks. The place had everything you needed, felt lived in and was spotless. The best part was the beautiful view!

Lovely place. Excellent location. Would visit again.

Excellent location and the loft space was lovely. The view of the mountains was amazing! Not such a great place of you are tall as there are many places to bump your head. However I would still highly recommend this place.

Great space for a few days away. Close to town with a nice footpath out the back into town. Great little village
On Saturday, 01 Oct 2022
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.

It seems like this cottage is located in the absolute center of the Lake District: you could hike to a couple of lakes right from the doorstep (Tarn How, Windermere,...). Hawskhead turned out to be the most perfect village; it was small, but everything's there, and most importantly, it was a pleasant place to walk around in. The cottage is a bit on the small side, but it's perfect for 2. And if the weather is as great as it was when we were there, you're outside all the time anyway :)

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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”!
