The property

This quaint whitewashed semi-detached cottage rests in the village of Witherslack in the Lake District, looking as though out of a fairy-tale, this picture-perfect cottage will be a perfect home-from-home for your trip to the Lakes. Rose Cottage is an ideal property for a small family or some avid walking friends wanting to test their limits on the peaks and fells in this wonderful area. Find yourself relaxing in the evening in the snug sitting room, where two sofas await you after a brisk walk, rest your feet and warm them with the woodburning stove set in the fireplace, and flick on the Smart TV. Expect to find exposed wooden ceiling beams throughout, and classic wooden cottage doors continuing the idyllic country style, offset by bright white and cream walls and modern fittings. A fitted kitchen/diner houses all the cooking essentials you’ll need to prep some tasty meals, or prepare a picnic so you can eat your lunch with a spectacular view on a hillside in the Lakes, whatever you choose the cream units and wooden worktops will be a delight to work with. Set up the dining table and gather the party around to share a lovely meal, before enjoying a drink outside in the enclosed garden taking in the last bit of sun and warmth of the day in the summer months. Come upstairs when your eyes feel heavy and find two bedrooms on the first floor and the family bathroom; choose from a double or a twin room, both enjoying delightful bed linen and furnishings, creating a wonderfully calming area to wind down in at the end of the day. The newly refurbished bathroom features a walk-in shower where you can wash off the day. Get on your bikes and set off on a bike ride out towards Lake Windermere and enjoy the sights and landscapes from your two wheels stopping at one of the many quaint cafes or tea rooms on the way for some well-deserved cake. From Lakeside, hop on the Windermere steamer cruises and head all the way up to Ambleside, experiencing the lake from the water, or visit Bowness-on-Windermere to see the wonderful Beatrix Potter Experience and meet Peter Rabbit and friends. Discover the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and enjoy a steam train ride, before marvelling at the amazing creatures in the Aquarium of the Lakes. Rose Cottage is perfect for families, couples and friends to spend a delightful rural retreat in the Lakes.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Cartmel 6 miles, Grange Over Sands 9 miles, Windermere 16 miles.

The small village of Witherslack lies tucked beneath Whitbarrow Scar, in a lovely area running south east from the shores of Lake Windermere, encompassing fell, woodland, river and valley bottom. The village consists of a huddle of fine, stone built traditional houses, cottages and barn conversions surrounded by unspoilt countryside, with varied flora and fauna and a nature reserve providing beautiful walking country. Nearby Lindale has a true 'Lakeland feel' with its narrow streets, traditional dwellings and quaint old pubs, while Cartmel, with its famous annual horse race meetings, and the pretty coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange-over-Sands are all worth a visit. With Lake Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead a short drive away, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of a magical area.
