    • “This is a lovely cottage with loads of character. An open coal fire for the cold evenings just added a perfect touch. Really enjoyed our stay. Had the best nights sleep in the double bed, but be prepared the single beds mattress have been sat on a little too much on the sides, so unless you lay in the middle you may tip off!. Its lovely and spacious, a lovely enclosed garden front and back. The owner is really nice. Piercebridge Roman fort was only a very sort walk away. On Orange and o2 there was basically no phone signal at all. The organic farm shop sells the papers.”

    • “My husband and myself plus Edward the Border Collie cross had a brilliant week in Rose Cottage back in August 2008. Not too far away from home (about hour or so) we arrived in Piercebridge with a little apprehension as its not the prettiest of villages. We found Rose Cottage and the owner was there to greet us. She was so lovely and friendly. When she left it was just like being in our own little piece of heaven...set back from the road, huge and secure front garden and driveway...great enclosed back garden....secluded and very peaceful !! Inside was cosy, clean and very well presented. Great walks around the area, plenty to do but ultimately a fantastic retreat to just a was safe to wander in of wine...fab !! Weather could have been better, but thats the UK for you. I would have no hestation in recommending Rose Cottage. I highly commend it !!!”
