Beautifully presented detached property located in the hamlet of Rogerground, with views across Esthwaite Valley, and within walking distance to village facilities.

This beautifully presented four-bedroom property is located in the peaceful hamlet of Roger Ground near Hawkshead. Sleeping eight people and two dogs, it’s a fantastic choice for sociable getaways and special occasions with family and friends. Guests will love soaking in the private hot tub, while local pubs and shops are within walking distance, meaning you can do as much or as little as you like.

With light and airy accommodation throughout, this delightful home has a contemporary and elegant feel. At its heart is a spacious open-plan living space which is perfect for entertaining larger groups. The warming wood burner is a lovely feature in the lounge area, where there’s plenty of comfortable seating for everyone to relax after a busy day exploring the Lakes. A second seating area provides additional space to unwind and offers wonderful views across the Esthwaite Valley. Whether it’s to enjoy a hearty breakfast or a sit-down meal, the large dining table can seat everyone, while the kitchen is both stylish and well-equipped. Three of the property’s inviting and restful bedrooms are to be found on this floor, while the fourth is located on the lower-ground floor and has its own en-suite. Heading outside into the large enclosed patio, climb the steps and soak your troubles away in the hot tub before enjoying a well-earned drink.

You don’t need to travel far to enjoy the countryside as many scenic walks and cycling trails are on the doorstep. Take a boat trip at Lake Windermere (5.5 miles) or Coniston Water (5.5 miles), while the more energetic members of the group might like to try their hand at paddleboarding or canoeing. Hire a Segway or follow the sculpture trail at Grizedale Forest (3 miles) before heading back to Hawkshead for a tasty meal in one of its charming pubs.

This property served us well but could do with some maintenance and a small amount of fine tuning could make it fab. Silly things like shelves etc hanging off walls, faulty shower and no instructions for hot tub and appliances are minor but important to guests. I highly recommend guests arrive in daylight as the house is difficult to find in the daRead morerk, no street lighting, narrow winding roads. Very few instructions, no kindling, uncomfortable beds! Take pillows! Great base tho and basic accomm! Hide

The setting in which this cottage is based is beautiful, however it is down very narrow lanes. If you are not very confident then this isnt the place for you. It is a 15 min walk to the village - walking down the country lanes. The property does smell damp and damp can be seen in the bedrooms. The hot tub is amazing . The cottage requires a freshenRead more up and the mattresses do need replacing. We had no available WiFi until the night before we were leaving which was unfortunate . Hide

Hawkshead is a lovely quiet location. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped. There was a welcome pack on arrival with tea, coffee etc which was most appreciated. We unfortunately had an emergency at the cottage during our stay and could not thank the staff at Holiday Cottages enough for their concern and support.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
