Guest Reviews


    • “Fabulous Cottage and Location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have just returned from a weeks stay at Rose Cottage. The cottage was very clean and tidy with everything in that you could possibly need. No phone reception, but a phone is provided for local and emergency calls also incoming calls. It also has Wi-Fi, which kept my teenage son amused. It was very homely and cosy with extremely comfortable beds. ( I don't think I've slept so well in a very long time)!! It is pet friendly, and our dog loved sitting in the safe enclosed garden which was so peaceful. The cottage is based in the village of Witherslack which had loads of walks on the door step, also a great base to explore the southern lakes. The local pub 'The Derby Arms' also had lovely food and welcoming staff. also within walking distance of the cottage. We would definitely recommend to family and friends and would not hesitate to return ourselves. Thank you.”

The garden was secure and got the late afternoon sun. Lots of walks in the near area. Would we recommend it - yes, definitely. Especially if you want to visit the southern part of the Lake District.”

About the location


Kendal 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.
