Description

Enjoy fabulous views of the Skiddaw mountain range, sunsets over the Solway Firth and the hills of Galloway.

In a magnificent rural setting, with fabulous views of the Skiddaw mountain range, magnificent sunsets over the Solway Firth, and the hills of Galloway across the border, these comfortable holiday properties were winners of the Keswick Tourism Association Country Establishments in 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007 and the Cumbria in Bloom Tourist Board Rose Bowl for Self Catering Establishment winners in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Rose Cottage (ref LPD) is attached to the owner’s farmhouse home, Rambling Rose Cottage (ref LWG) and Rosedale Cottage (ref LYL) are adjacent and have both been converted to a high standard, and Primrose Cottage (ref LPG) has been converted from a former byre and stands in a courtyard which is bedecked with flower tubs, window boxes and hanging baskets. The cottages are beautifully furnished and equipped to VisitBritain ‘5 Star Gold’ standard. Guests will enjoy the friendly rare breeds sheep and ponies (including miniature Shetland ponies) and visitors are welcome to walk in the fields surrounding the farm (a red squirrel has been spotted in the grounds), as well as the many public footpaths nearby. This 500-acre farm is set in an AONB, with walks from the door plus superb fell walking nearby.

    This is our second stay at Rose Cottage. As always a wonderful welcome from Alan and Isobel with warm scones on arrival. Nice area of Lake District away from the over commercialised southern part but within easy driving distance of Cockermouth, Keswick, Carlisle, Gretna Green and even Ambleside and Windermere. Lovely local walks and if you are into hill climbing there is Skiddaw and Skafel Pike within a 30 minute drive. Locally the pubs only open in the evening although local tea room open all day and highly recommended. Shopping best at Cockermouth or Keswick for supermarkets or local shops. Scenery as always is stunning. For bird watchers there are bird feeders just outside the cottage which attract numerous varieties of bird life. Cottage is well equipped with all you should need and if weather turns bad there is always the wood burner to keep you snug. If the weather is nice you can sit out on the patio for an evening drink. In the morning you wake up in your four poster to views across to Skiddaw in the distance. Hopefully we will pay them another visit in the not too distant future.

    We liked it so much that we have booked again for June. A very good choice for our Xmas break. Everything was as expected , in fact even better. Just need a return visit to do lots more walking. Loads of suggested walks documented in the cottage courtesy of Isobel and Alan and most starting and finishing at the farm Will give a more up to date review following our June trip.

    Fantastic welcome. Wonderful place to stay and at the end of our holiday the owners, Isabelle & Alan, gave us a great farewell. We had made two new friends. All you could wish for on a holiday.
