    “Very cosy, warm loft with fantastic views towards the fells.”

    Loads to do locally. A bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch. Comfortable bed, more than adequate kitchen and a nice bathroom. A very relaxing week.

The property

A perfect place to escape on Peter Rabbit's home patch!

A romantic hideaway for a couple at Rogerground by Hawkshead is just what you need to revitalise the senses and relax fully in blissful rural surroundings.

Full of authentic old-world charm, this little nest is waiting to soothe away everyday cares, and to help you take a little time-out-of-time for just the two of you! Perched in the eaves of a 17th Century Grade II listed period property splendidly situated in the heart of Beatrix Potter country, character is a given here at Hawkshead Hideaway.

The original oak beams are like a fantastical rustic sculpture wrapping around your intimate and homely apartment, and you'll feel like you've stepped into a living fairytale! A rapturous view of the local fells from the window by the little dining table makes mealtimes a real treat, and when you are not wining and dining each other indoors, or outside in the pretty cottage garden, you have plenty of enticing options in the surrounding area, with all manner of inns and restaurants in Hawkshead and a smattering of homely hostelries dotting the countryside nearby, including the well-loved Drunken Duck Inn at Barngates, which serves delicious real ales along with fantastic food. You'll delight in seeing Beatrix Potter's home at Sawrey, and you can visit a gallery of her work in Hawkshead village, too.

For walking, there are hundreds of superb pathways all around, competing for your attention, and a short drive takes you to Grizedale Forest, with marked woodland trails, a visitor centre, cycle hire, and a rather fun Go Ape tree-top ropes course.

Steamers cruise Lake Windermere and Coniston Water, and there is always something new to discover in this most beautiful part of the Lakes. At the end of the day, a romantic bedroom with comfortable king-size bed, sloped ceiling with wooden beams and characterful décor, awaits for you to cosy up in and regenerate for your next adventures at Hawkshead Hideaway!

About the location


Ambleside 4 miles; Kendal 24 miles.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.
