  • "This is a lovely house in the heart of Keswick with 2 parking spots."

    House is well decorated and furnished with great bathrooms. Beds were comfortable and high quality bed linen. Just a couple of observations.....there wasn't a free cupboard in the kitchen to store our food. Maybe the addition of some shelves in the kitchen would free up some cupboard space. The large bedroom on the first floor would benefit from a chest of drawers as there was only a wardrobe. Would highly recommend this property for a comfortable stay.

  • "The property was really comfy and had a nice homely feel with an excellent location."

    The only thing that would have made it perfect was a downstairs loo as we were 3 pairs of over 60`s but I guess that would suit a family with young children also. Thanks very much and we would definitely stay again and recommend it to friends.

  • "Delightful cottage, excellently located and well appointed with everything you could possibly wish for."

    We were very comfortable throughout, what a wonderful stay! We've definitely found our favourite cottage in Keswick and will be back, hopefully again and again! Slight con: the communal grassy area out back seems to have become a dog toilet, despite signs prohibiting this, with people taking their dogs there to do their business. Not the owners fault but this is also the communal clothes drying area and I was loathed to let my children play on the grass

  • "An excellent property in an excellent location, everything that we needed was provided and we had no issues at all."

    ..very well maintained and clean. We couldn't really fault it though the one thing I may add is on the travel instructions it may be worth adding on turning into Stanger Street turn left into Hodgsons Yard for parking and the rear of the house, we took a while to find it!!

    Many thanks for your feedback, we will add the information to the directions to get to Roselea. Pleased you enjoyed your stay. ☺ Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed ourselves so much we were looking to book again for next year, but were appalled and disappointed to see that the price had increased by 25%."

    What a shame you felt the need to make such a drastic change to prices - wonder what the reason was?

  • "We have stayed at this cottage for 3 years and absolutely love it."

    My feedback is that going from £1150 ish to £1750 for the same week next summer is a bit high ! Too much for us sadly.

  • "The locks on the front and back doors are difficult to open and close especially for people with a poor grip."

    I consider this a fire hazard and needs fixing now. The email from Sykes gave contradictory information on how to access the keys in the key safe. The front garden key safe is at a ridiculous height - the back door key safe is far better and near the car park.

    The cottage was just as it is described and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We didn't have to use the car as we could easily walk into Keswick and to the lake. The cottage is spacious and very well equiped with comfortable beds and hot water whenever it is needed. We will definitely be back some time in the future!

    we have stopped in Kewick many times but first time at Roslea and we will choose to stay here going forward. The place had a lovley modern feel but still maintained the cottage look. The cottage has been done to the highest standards and feels very homely.The map wallpaper is an excellent idea as it helps plan out your time of where you can go whilst in the lakes. The cottage is in the heart of the town, just a small stroll into the market place to find all the lovely shops and resteraunts. Amazing sums it up . The Kelly,s

    The cottage is beautifully furnished with a luxury kitchen and bathrooms. The garden has a nice private sunny area for sitting out.

I would definitely recommend this cottage for a holiday in Keswick. Also The Wainwright pub and Skiddaw Hotel restaurant and the chippy at the end of the street. We went to the theatre which was very good and We also walked around Derwentwater lake and did the Railway walk. Great holiday - thank you

  • "Rosalea was very nice, obviously just been done up to a high standard and was spotless."

    The location is ideal for the centre of Keswick. A few things that would have made it better / make it unlikely that we would go back: 1. Parking - really difficult to get parked on the street. When we arrived we ended up blocking the road and unloading all our things into front yard whilst being beeped. 2. All double beds in the house, the kids fight in a double bed so we had to spilt them up. Would ensure next time we choose a property with option of single beds for them 3. Only 6 knives, cups, bowls etc. Meant you had to wash up after every meal. Felt a little stingy especially given how much we paid for 4 nights (half term so high season) 4. Recycling - rather complicated system in operation in Keswick with alternate week recycling collection with paper having to go in a separate bin and plastic/ glass in a purple bag. We could only find a general bin and no paper bin nor recycling bags - a neighbour explained the system and also that the collection was delayed as it was a bank holiday week - a few extra lines in the welcome information to explain the process would have helped us. Overall we had a great holiday and hope the feedback is useful to help make Roselea even better than it is.

  • "Fantastic location, parking on the street not great however we found that the shoppers left around 6pm so we were able to move our car onto the street later in the evening."

    House was beautifully decorated, and newly refurbished. A few things missing that could have made the stay 100% perfect. Such as drinking glasses or pint glasses for beer. A shoe rack for muddy boots in the hallway would be a good addition too. Other than that, a truly enjoyable stay and a beautiful property.
