  • "The property we selected indicated that there was a pub within walking distance - which turned out to be closed for the full week of our stay, and a real fire in the living room which wasn't working due to a fault."

    We were not informed of either of these prior to arriving.

  • "Lovely cottage shame they failed to fill the log basket so we couldn't use the log burner."

    And no upstairs torches been left in the drawers so difficult to see during the night. Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

  • "Disappointed no fuel/starterpack for fires were provided despite stating that they were included in price- we were looking forward to warming up by the fire in the evening after a rainy days walking."

  • "· I booked this cottage as an early 21st birthday gift for my stepchildren and for us to have some quality time as a family."

    We arrived around 3.30pm and found the key safe as instructed in the email and entered the cottage. Well what can I say but how lovely it was we were thrilled with the location and the view was stunning. Clean spacious and very comfortable it had every possible home comfort you could possibly need. There were 5 of us in our party as my stepdaughter had brought her boyfriend along but we had plenty of space and the bedrooms were both roomy and extremely comfortable. I would certainly recommend such a delightful cottage and look forward to staying again at some point we all had a fabulous time.

  • "Could you please tell the owner: 1: That there were a pair of trousers in the master bedroom wardrobe when we arrived."

    2: There was a cracked glass which subsequently broke when we came to use it. 3: The hair drier in the master blew up and sparked when I went to use it, due to bare wires between the hair drier and the cable.

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.
