About Gill & Geoff Barton
Gill and Geoff Barton are the new owners of Rough Close House and Coppice. Having retired, we are excited to be able to live in the heart of the Lake District in a beautiful location. We have worked in the area for over 30 years and have a background in sport and outdoor pursuits, so we know how to enjoy it and where to go, even pubs and coffee shops!
Gill & Geoff Barton purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Gill & Geoff Barton chose Hawkshead
Knowing the Lake District very well we looked over the whole of the area before choosing Rough Close because of it's fantastic setting between Grizedale forest and Esthwaite Water. It is a beautiful location in any weather and at any time of year.

From the second I got here until the second I left Gill and Geoff have been nothing but fantastic. Only here for a long weekend to relax. Wish I had booked longer, as they recommended Tarns walks which are beautiful. Need to come back to the charming cottage to explore some more.
