    “We loved this cottage and its location.”

    The views from the back garden are tremendous and last week's exceptional weather allowed us to take full advantage of the outside seating with a drink or two. The cottage is extremely comfortable and the shower is one of the best I've ever experienced in a rented property. A pub within easy walking distance was a bonus. Will definitely return..

This charming, end-terrace dwelling is ideal for families or couples wishing to enjoy this pretty part of Cumbria with a cosy base. Stepping into the property you will find an idyllic sitting room with a wood burner in the fireplace and stone slab floors to highlight the character and charm of this property. Moving through the dwelling, you will find an amply equipped kitchen and a dining room, which includes a second wood burner, along with access to the sunny conservatory and picturesque cottage garden. Completing the interior is a ground-floor shower room with a walk-in shower, basin and WC. As the evening draws to a close, make your way up the staircase to find three wonderfully presented bedrooms. Here, you will find two double bedrooms with charming views over the fields to the surrounding fells, one boasting a stylish bathroom with a charming roll top bath. Completing the sleeping accommodation is a single bedroom, offering a tranquil base for one. There are stunning views of the Coniston Fells and mountains from the private garden at the back of the cottage, with a lovely patio section for meals outside. If you want to eat out or have a drink within walking distance, the Red Lion Inn is a stone's throw away and is a favourite with locals. A short drive away is the nearby village of Greenodd with a fabulous bakery, along with a butcher and a fish and chip shop. Also nearby is Ulverston, a traditional market town built around a cobbled main street, which boasts a fine selection of independent shops, cafes, and pubs. A short drive away is Coniston Water, for marine sports, walks and beaches. Or take the bikes out in Grizedale Forest. Lake Windermere can also be explored by cruising on the Windermere Steamer and the Haverthwaite and Lakeside Railway will delight every child and rail enthusiast.

About the location

LOWICK BRIDGE

Ulverston 5 miles; Coniston 7 miles; Coniston Water 3 miles

There has been a settlement at Lowick since the Vikings in the 9th century, whose farmsteads were called Lofwik, probably meaning leafy creek or river bend. They will have settled and fished around the River Crake which runs from the southern end of Coniston Water into the Leven Estuary at Greenodd, and onto Morecambe Bay. Farming and agriculture have always been at the heart of Lowick, which also once boasted a tannery, blacksmith, old mill, police house, post office, and a local school. A short walk from Rose Cottage is St. Luke's Church and Lowick Hall, a small Cumbrian manor house, whose history stretches back nearly a thousand years. The nearest village is Greenodd with a butcher, baker and post office. The closest town is Ulverston, which was granted a charter for a market every Thursday in 1280 by Edward I, and still has market days every Thursday, as well as Saturday. There is an abundance of walks and activities in the area. From gentle ambling across the fields and fells from Rose Cottage, to mountaineering, marine activities and cycling in The Lake District National Park, and the sand and sea around Morecombe Bay. This is an ideal location for countryside and coastal pursuits.

Note: Low ceiling in first floor bathroom.
