The property

The charming cottage known as Rose Cottage is located in Threlkeld, near Keswick, right in the middle of the Lake District National Park. A lovely 4 mile walk along the railway path will bring you into the heart of Keswick. Rose Cottage accommodates six visitors for a tranquil break in Cumbria and boasts a large enclosed garden, breath-taking mountain views, and a classic interior design. After a long day of exploring the neighbourhood, step inside to find a pleasant sitting room with a TV/DVD and a wood-burning stove. The chosen chef can prepare a delicious meal in the well-stocked kitchen, and you can have a family supper at the dining table or in the conservatory. Why not head out to the enclosed garden and enjoy a drink while watching the sun set over the mountains? After dinner, retire to one of the three bedrooms, which include a double, a double on the second floor, and a bunk bed on the second floor, to rest up before starting your Cumbrian schedule. Start your day with a revitalising shower or a soothing bath, then visit the nearby Castlerigg Stone Circle or Threlkeld Quarry and Mining Museum where you can explore the former Victorian industrial site. Try your hand at a variety of watersports at Derwentwater, or travel to Surprise View and Lodore Falls to take in breath-taking lake views and untainted landscapes. Discover Keswick Museum, Derwent Pencil Museum, and Puzzling Place where you can enjoy a variety of optical illusions and artwork exhibitions. You are also in a good location to visit iconic destinations like Windermere, which is home to Wray Castle, Holehird Gardens, and Hill Top, the former residence of renowned children's author Beatrix Potter, as well as Ullswater, where Aira Force Waterfall is located. From the quaint base of Rose Cottage, take a fun-filled getaway with your loved ones to the Lake District National Park.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Keswick 3.8 miles; Watermillock 11.9 miles; Ambleside 16.3 miles.

The charming village of Threlkeld is just to the east of Keswick in the Northern Lakes. The steep sided Blencathra looms over Threlkeld village, a popular starting point for walking the mountain. Threlkeld's history reaches back more than 800 years; the Romans were here from the 3rd to the 8th century, followed later by the Norse. In the village the church dates back to 1578 and there are two pubs that first opened their doors in 1688.Though only a few miles outside Keswick, the village is tranquil and unspoilt with great views of Blencathra and the Helvellyn range.
