Surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, with an abundance of cottage garden plants and roses, giving the cottage its name. Rose Cottage offers comfortable accommodation, in a great rural location, that is close to the popular seaside town of Southport, just 4 miles away. Ideal for families and couples, this detached single-storey bungalow benefits from off road parking and well-stocked gardens, to the front and rear. The owners, who live next door, have taken great care to ensure that the accommodation has all the comforts one needs for a great stay. Rose Cottage has a private enclosed garden to the rear, which with its lawned area and patio, is perfect for alfresco dining in the summer. There is a fantastic conservatory with lots of comfy seating from which to enjoy the garden on cooler days and a welcoming open fire in the lounge for those colder months.
Rose Cottage is located in the village of Scarisbrick, which is just less than 4 miles away from the Victorian seaside resort of Southport. The popular village of Birkdale, which offers several bars and restaurants, and a number of independent retailers, is just over 3 miles away.
