About this property

This quaint whitewashed semi-detached cottage rests in the village of Witherslack in the Lake District, looking as though out of a fairy-tale, this picture-perfect cottage will be a perfect home-from-home for your trip to the Lakes. Rose Cottage is an ideal property for a small family or some avid walking friends wanting to test their limits on the peaks and fells in this wonderful area. Find yourself relaxing in the evening in the snug sitting room, where two sofas await you after a brisk walk, rest your feet and warm them with the woodburning stove set in the fireplace, and flick on the Smart TV. Expect to find exposed wooden ceiling beams throughout, and classic wooden cottage doors continuing the idyllic country style, offset by bright white and cream walls and modern fittings. A fitted kitchen/diner houses all the cooking essentials you’ll need to prep some tasty meals, or prepare a picnic so you can eat your lunch with a spectacular view on a hillside in the Lakes, whatever you choose the cream units and wooden worktops will be a delight to work with. Set up the dining table and gather the party around to share a lovely meal, before enjoying a drink outside in the enclosed garden taking in the last bit of sun and warmth of the day in the summer months. Come upstairs when your eyes feel heavy and find two bedrooms on the first floor and the family bathroom; choose from a double or a twin room, both enjoying delightful bed linen and furnishings, creating a wonderfully calming area to wind down in at the end of the day. The newly refurbished bathroom features a walk-in shower where you can wash off the day. Get on your bikes and set off on a bike ride out towards Lake Windermere and enjoy the sights and landscapes from your two wheels stopping at one of the many quaint cafes or tea rooms on the way for some well-deserved cake. From Lakeside, hop on the Windermere steamer cruises and head all the way up to Ambleside, experiencing the lake from the water, or visit Bowness-on-Windermere to see the wonderful Beatrix Potter Experience and meet Peter Rabbit and friends. Discover the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and enjoy a steam train ride, before marvelling at the amazing creatures in the Aquarium of the Lakes. Rose Cottage is perfect for families, couples and friends to spend a delightful rural retreat in the Lakes.

Witherslack lies beneath Whitbarrow Scar, in an area running from the shores of Lake Windermere. The village consists of traditional houses surrounded by unspoilt countryside. Enjoy picking up your essentials in the village shop, or pop into the local pub for an evening drink with friends after a day of fresh air and walks. The Lake District has a multitude of opportunities for walking, cycling, and many watersports in the popular lakes.

    The cottage was lovely and clean with plenty of facilities to make the holiday comfortable and enjoyable. Paul and Sara are very welcoming and helpful. We were able to bring our dog with us to the cottage. The porch with a tiled floor is great for cleaning a muddy dog. The local area is beautiful with a great country pub just down the road. This cottage is perfect for anyone wanting a quiet getaway with plenty of space to explore on the doorstep. I imagine we will be back soon.

    Cottage was beautiful , well equipped and lovely and warm and cosy. Fabulous setting in a lovely quiet village but with a pub and shop in easy walking distance.

  • Nick

    The cottage was perfect for our needs and is suitably located for those wishing to explore what the Lake District and Cumbria has to offer. The cottage was clean and tidy, and the log burner gives it that cosy feeling, which is also great after a long day of walking and exploring. The communication with Sara and Paul was amazing and we will definitely visit again in the near future.
