A picture perfect Lakeland cottage with period features and a secluded garden. Rural walks from the door.

Filled with beams and character and boasting a feature iron grate in the kitchen, it stands as one of a row in the little hamlet of Outgate, with its own sunny furnished garden. Amidst pleasant countryside, Rose Lea Cottage makes an excellent base for exploring the many National Trust properties, fells, mountains and lakes of the Lake District National Park. Windermere lake and town within easy driving distance. Hawshead only a mile away. Shops 1 mile, pub within walking distance.

Oak-beamed living/dining room with slate floor and multi-fuel burner. Lovely oak-fitted kitchen with old iron grate feature. Panelled bathroom and toilet. Shower room. Steep winding stairs to first floor: Two bedrooms with exposed beams showing original cruck construction; one double with four-poster bed and built-in wardrobes, and one twin.

    This is a good cottage which could move into the excellent bracket with the following items being attended to. 1) Intermittent fault in fan heater in bathroom, it stops and starts. 2) The illuminated shaving mirror in the bathroom does not work, shaving in the gloom is not very successful.3) A pint of semi skimmed milk is automaticaly left for you on the Sunday morning by the local milkman. The only way we discovered this was by accident when browsing through the cottage information folder late on the Saturday night after our arrival. It is down to the hirer of the cottage to cancel this order! Cancelled by leaving a note out on Monday morning and paying for the pint we did not want or could not use as I am lactose intolerant. This should be an opt in not an opt out option.4) Pasta bowls would be nice. Having said all that I have booked to stop again next year.

    This was the second time we've stayed at roselea cottage. We loved it the first time around and this time was just as good.

    We arrived, albeit early, at 3.15 to find the cottage had not at that stage been cleaned, bed unmade etc etc. We phoned your office to inform and were told that the cleaners were probably yet to arrive. We got a further phone call to say that they were on the way. We went to the pub in view of the property. The cleaners arrived very shortly after, mob handed, 3 ladies and 2 men and in 10 minutes (actually slightly less but we'll give them the benefit of the doubt)they were back in their car on the way. Although the property was not "dirty" we fail to see how a property as large as this one could be properly cleaned in that time. It's a good job the previous tenants cleaned prior to leaving. Some items were not done, crisps underneath coffee table indicating inefficient vacuuming, Windows unclean, grill pan obviously washed but not properly clean, waste bin in bedroom not emptied, poor quality toilet rolls. These are just examples. This did not spoil our holiday as we are not usually complainers but maybe your "cleaners" need better management!

    Four adults stayed for a week at RoseLea Cottage. Just a couple little things, the garage has a slope so getting the car in is tight. Down stairs toilet bathroom, we didn't realies. the information booklet needs updating (The OutGate Pub no longer does Friday Night Jazz) Very lovely place, everything you could want, warm clean and Airy . close to all the places that we had planned to visit for the week. We arrived and found no Towels, but a phone call corrected that within the hour.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. We value our customer’s feedback and are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at Rose Lea Cottage. The garage is sloping from the road; unfortunately this is the only access we have from the road to the property. Further to this, we have now stated in the advertisement of the property that access to the garage can be restricted for large vehicles due to the nature of the garage, as it was originally a stable. We have taken your comments on board with regards to the information booklet; we are currently addressing this and updating the booklet, thank you for pointing this out to us. With regards to the towels, we apologise for the inconvenience. We discovered this was an issue with a change of cleaner, a breakdown in communication resulted, in this occasion, no towels being left for you – we sincerely apologised and tried our utmost to rectify this at the time. Going forward the properties new cleaner is now aware of the correct procedure. We hope to see you again at Rose Lea Cottage.
