Beautiful! Will definitely be booking again and will be recommending to family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful and plenty of room for 7 adults and 1 child. Everything in the property was catered for so we didn't have to bring any extra bits with us. The area it's situated in is very quiet so perfect for relaxing and 5 mins from the main village of Windermere. The cottage was immaculate and eveything we had hoped for! We'll be booking up again very soon!

Fabulous cottage, Totally luxurious

  • 5 of 5

Its rare to find such a gem that not only lives up to its description, but far exceeds it. We have just returned from a four day stay at Rose Cottage and I must say we were so sad to leave. It is not only beautifully decorated, it is clean, welcoming and has such a high quality finish we could not fault anything. It totally lived up to its description. Although there were only two of us staying in a three bedroomed cottage, the intimacy was still superb. Its location is secluded and quiet despite being less than a 10 minute walk from the town of Windermere.

The renovation throughout has been very well thought out, it caters for either two or at least 8. The bathrooms are beautiful, the kitchen is stunning and the lounge is a cosy retreat after a long days walk. The photos of the bedrooms just do not do justice to what you find when you are at the property, they are simply beautiful, so comfortable and totally indulgent.

Absolutely everything was provided for arrival and I cannot fault the ease of contact with Helen.

The local amenities are as you would expect, but we were surprised to find that we enjoyed being in the cottage so much, we lost half a day just relaxing...it was that good.

In all I cannot recommend this property highly enough, we arealready lookuing to book again but need to be quick, it is proving to be a popular cottage....and with good reason !

Overall.....a superbly luxurious property.

Luxury weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! I booked this cottage for my dad's 50th Birthday and it's safe to say it's a birthday we'll all remember! This cottage is perfect and resonably priced too! I have to admit upon booking a visit to Rose Cottage, I was nervous it wouldn't live up to expectations, especially furnishings; I was not dissappointed. The cottage is exactly as featured , and very spacious. Helen, the owner, was absolutely wonderful, she answered all questions quickly and professionally and was always willing to go the extra mile to ensure a perfect break away. I can't stress how pleased I was with our visit. 10/10 & I shall be returning. I highly reccommend Rose Cottage!!

Fantastic mini break celebration

  • 5 of 5

I booked Rose Cottage to celebrate our dads 60th birthday and it didn't disappoint. The cottage is in a lovely location for getting to the town and also for local walks. It is maintained to a very high standard and is modern and clean. We ate out but could have easily stayed in to dine as the kitchen diner area is very nicely decorated, had everything we needed and the open plan makes it very sociable for groups. The owner is easily contactable and replied quickly to any questions I had before our arrival. Booking was stress free. I would definitely stay here again if we return to Windermere.

Great weekend in a top property

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. There were 8 of us in total and it worked well from a space perspective. The property has been modernised to a very good (and tasteful) standard. It is also conveniently located. Would certainly recommend and visit again.

Perfect weekend in a perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 7 friend stayed in this cottage over a weekend and it certainly did not disappoint. It had everything is said it had and more. The cottage is beautiful from top to bottom and completely immaculate. It really has been done up lovely. There was plenty of room and the bedrooms were lovely. The kitchen was perfect - loved cooking in it over the weekend. Plenty of plates, pots, pans, cutlery... You make it, it was there!!

On our arrival we found the properly relatively easy as we just typed in the postcode which led us straight there. Once we got to the area we weren't too sure which house it was. After a quick phone call to Helen, she lead us straight to the house over the phone and was very helpful and friendly.

We spent Saturday in Windermere itself. Absolutely stunning....and the cottage is so easy to get backwards and forwards to. Really is in an ideal location.

Plenty of shops and breathtaking views. Just wandering into Windermere itself was our favourite, having a coffee here and there.

We also ventured to the aquarium during our stay...I must say it was disappointing and wouldn't recommend it.

On the Saturday night we booked to go to Jintana Thai restaurant which is just in the town. Thai is our favourite food and we must say it was the best thai we have ever had. BEAUTIFUL!!! We then wandered down to some of the pubs which were just lovely - great atmosphere. From the cottage to the town we got a taxi which fit all 8 of us in. It cost us £1 each which was ideal....the lovely taxi man was very helpful and gave us his number to pick us up for the same price later that night!

On Sunday we wandered into Grassmere and round the shops which was also lovely!

There were tonnes of walkers....we really should have been more prepared, it looked so popular for walking!

All in all, top weekend had by all and we would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. Families, friends, couples!

We hope to be returning ourselves in the future!
