Excellent property, would highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely renovated house. We had a great time here, space is perfect enabling cooking and eating in same room perfect for socialising. Decor was fab and attention to detail was apparent. Loved the shared bathroom on the third floor, great for a family of 4 !!

Would have liked another couple of chairs for the dining table as there were 7 of us....

Thank you for a great short break in a lovely house, we will recommend to other friends and will return too.

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

Faultless stay at Rose Cottage. Everything was perfect. The property was extremely clean and well equipped and 7 adults stayed extremely comfortably - wish we could have stayed longer. Short walk into windermere and only £15 in a taxi to Ambleside. The pictures are very representative of the property and there was ample parking for a large van & 3 cars. Thankyou for our wonderful stay!

Good weekend but for a niggle

  • 4 of 5

Great location to walk to restaurants, Booths, bars and shops but private enough to be undisturbed. Lovely conversion and all bedrooms were nicely done. The suite is an absolute stunner. Wet rooms to both bathrooms and ground floor closet. Kitchen well fitted/kitted out except for heating. We couldn’t really use the kitchen/dinning area much over the weekend because as well as it being the coldest weekend on record for decades the room is open plan with a glass conservatory (heats flies through the glass) In summer I imagine it’s beautiful however with main radiator not working and the room was like a fridge the whole weekend which did detract to be honest. I hope they fix that and regularly conduct checks over winter. We ended up spending most of our time in the small lounge which looks nice on the photos but the layout doesn’t lend itself to relaxing and watching tv (2 sofas facing each other). The other tv is in the conservatory but isn’t connected to the DVD player. It just doesn’t work somehow! Hot water is slow to come through the system and not that powerful through the showers as nice aesthetically as they are. We had a great time all in all though as we had things planned and went out quite a lot. It just would have been nice to come home to a toasty house to kick back n chill after a walk in the cold. We would definitely go back the ground floor just needs some attention. BTW the property is semi detached and not mentioned in the spec is a basement room with a double bed and nice furnishings. It’s definately good for 8 people bed wise.

Really enjoyed our family stay in this cottage for 3 nights. Great locations for some good walks and a short stroll into Windermere.

Will recommend to anyone and will look forward to returning ourselves.

Lovely house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. We came with our two children (10 and 5) and a set of inlaws.

The house is very well presented and clean. Great location being a short walk into Windermere and a short drive into Bowness. There's an excellent walk (relatively easy for young children) up Orrest Head just up the road and a beautiful walk down to the lake which includes a river with small waterfalls.

There's so much to do in and around this area. Plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants all walking distance with even more choice a short drive away.

In the lead up, the owner couldn't be more helpful with tips and advice. Would recommend the area and this great house. Thanks!

A loverily looking property, in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

Rose cottage is a very attractive looking cottage, that is very well decorated inside. It's just outside Windamire and not too far from Ambleside so a great location for getting to all the attractions in the area. Helen who ownes Rose cottage seams nice (I only got to speak to her on the phone) and sorts out any problems very quickly. The only slight negative (and I will put this in the review so this does not come across as completely one sided) is that on a few occasions the appearance of the decoration has won out of over practicality, so for example one oven in the kitchen can't be opened as it hits the door knob to the fridge, or you can't open the washing machine either door properly as it it's the wall making it difficult to use. These things are rather small however compared to how much we enjoyed our stay.
