  • "Lovely cosy and welcoming cottage, perfect location on the out skirts of the village."

    We had a wonderful family time, thank you. All facilities required, just wish we could have stayed longer. Fantastic walk to the nature reserve which we did twice daily! Thank you for the recommendation. We hope to be returning next year, thanks again.

    The cottage was very clean and comfortable and the log fire was a real treat to sit and relax with on a chilly evening.There was everything you needed and more. The garden was lovely and chilled and lovely to sit out in on a sunny evening. We also were very fortunate to spot 2 deer out the back of the cottage in the evening. The country side around the cottage is stunning

  • "We so enjoyed our stay at Rosemary Cottage, it is comfortable and well equipped, with a lovely garden and friendly neighbours."

    The cottage is situated in an ideal location for exploring both Cumbria and Yorkshire. If you are in the vicinity of Kirkby Stephen, the Black Bull at Nateby, is excellent for lunch. Personal communication from the owners was very welcome. We hope to be back and would certainly recommend a stay at Rosemary Cottage.

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage, a real "home from home" ."

    We very much enjoyed our stay, lovely comfy bed, good woodburner, kitchen very well equipped with everything we needed. Even facilities for washing down dirty dogs! The only thing we would have liked to be different, was that there was no heating on when we arrived at 8pm on a chilly March evening. It would have been more welcoming to arrive at a warm house. However, once it had warmed up, the cottage was lovely and warm and cosy!

  • "A wonderful cottage, really well kitted out which makes all the difference."

    Everything you could need is already there and the little touches like there being cooking oil, dishwasher tablets, handwash are all such a help when you're self-catering. The living room is lovely and comfortable with plenty of seating. Bedrooms and bathroom are lovely too. The cottage is really well-located, with Kendal, Kirkby Lonsdale, Windermere and Carnforth all in easy reach. It's perfect for dog owners with an enclosed garden and loads of walks nearby.

  • "Rosemary cottage is the most amazing place to stay."

    A true quaint cottage experience... fully equipped with everything you need... a home from home. Deb as thought of everything you could possibly need down to clogs at the back door for taking your dog in the garden.. Tons of literature about the lakes and places to visit... even walking sticks in every size to ease the journey. Binoculars to view the wildlife and board games for fun evenings everything covered. Log burner a God send for cozy nights.... and oh that fantastic shower!! What a brilliant location we visited Morecambe, Ingleton, Arnside, Kendal, Kirby lonsdale within 30 mins travel time. I highly recommended Rosemary cottage.. one downside

  • "Rosemary cottage is a lovely home in Burton-in-Kendal."

    It has all the facilities you could ask for and the owner has great communication and it was clear that she really cares about her guests. The furniture was very comfy and the fire made the rainy days extra cosy. The garden was great for our dog. It was fully enclosed with lots of areas to explore. The cottage is in a great location- 30ish minutes to Windermere and then about an hour to Coniston and Ullswater- and walkable to pubs. The cottage is on a quiet lane which is a nice break from city life. We would highly recommend!

  • "This is a great little cottage probably the best equipped I’ve ever stayed in."

    The kitchen has absolutely everything you need, there is sky TV and wifi and good phone signal. It is perfectly located near good road links but in the country side. It takes 10 minis to drive to Kirby Lonsdale, 20 mins to Windermere and 25 to ingleton so there is the whole of the lake district and the Yorkshire dales to explore. On the immediate doorstep is a beautiful canal and Farleton Fell for walks from the door . Good shops and restaurants are 10 mins away. We found this house and area by accident but are really glad we did and will definitely return.

    Thanks for letting us know, it turned out that it was coming from the dyson, I think some food must have been vacuumed up! All sorted now. I'm so pleased you had a lovely week and enjoy your stay, thank you for your 100% positive feedback, we look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Rosemary Cottage really is a home from home."

    It is charming on the outside and welcoming on the inside. Well furnished with all the homely touches you could ask for, including books, DVD's, a games console with games, jigsaws and information leaflets. The kitchen is well laid out and has everything you'd ever need. The bedrooms are well appointed with very comfortable beds. The modern bathroom is great with a massive shower and plenty of space. The finishing touch is the lovely garden with a table and chairs, plus a swing seat, for enjoying the views over the adjoining fields while taking in the sun. We also used the large garden shed for storing our mountain bikes, which was very useful. Overall, Rosemary Cottage was a joy to stay in and was a key element in a very enjoyable two week holiday. We would certainly recommend it and feel sure we'll be back.

The property

Burton-in-Kendal 0.6 miles.

A combination of old and new awaits you in this stylish, stone, character cottage which is located on a quiet lane with countryside views just a short distance from the village of Burton in Kendal in the south Lakes.

This cottage is ideal for family or friends wishing to spend time together to enjoy this delightful area.

This beautifully presented cottage with period features such as beams, wooden floors, stable doors and a woodburning stove also has modern amenities and ample leather seating in the spacious sitting and dining area.

Upstairs you can enjoy countryside views from the bedrooms and sink into comfortable beds that also have a touch of glamour with the bed furnishing.

After your day’s activities return to this welcoming cottage and enjoy your favourite drink on the decking in the garden overlooking the fields and woodland and watch the sunset or hunker down in front of the woodburner.

With walking and cycling from your door, enjoy Farleton Knott where you can explore the dramatic limestone pavements and take in far reaching views to the lakes and Morecambe Bay estuary as well as Warton Crag and Arnside Knott closer to hand.

There are beautiful coastal walks in Arnside and Silverdale, an area of outstanding natural beauty, which is a short drive away and in Silverdale there is the RSPB reserve Leighton Moss.

In the opposite direction you can visit Kirby Lonsdale, a delightful historic market town with quality pubs, eateries, artisan bakeries, a chocolatier and a traditional sweet shop with all those childhood favourites in the ancient market square.

Devils Bridge runs over the river and you can walk alongside the river bank and take in the charming village and scenery until you reach the ancient church at the far end of the village.

At Carnforth you can relax and enjoy a leisurely pace by taking a canal to Lancaster in summer months or a train to the villages above or how about a trip up the west coast.

Kendal is a 20 minute drive away with both Levens Hall and its wonderful gardens and Sizergh Castle close by.

Windermere and Ambleside are also a little further afield to explore the Lake District National Park.

This is a fantastic property in an ideal location with so many things to see and do you’ll have to book a return trip!
