  • "Just returned after a lovely New Year break at Rose Cottage."

    The cottage was perfect for our needs and is suitably located for those wishing to explore what the Lake District and Cumbria has to offer. The cottage was clean and tidy, and the log burner gives it that cosy feeling, which is also great after a long day of walking and exploring. The communication with Sara and Paul was amazing and we will definitely visit again in the near future.

    Hi Nick, many thanks for your great feedback. Glad you found the cottage warm and cozy at this time of year and enjoyed your time at the Cottage. We would love to host you if you visit the Lake District again. Property Owner

    Cottage was beautiful , well equipped and lovely and warm and cosy. Fabulous setting in a lovely quiet village but with a pub and shop in easy walking distance.

    It is tastefully decorated, with lovely touches and has everything anyone would need for a relaxing stay. Our dog loved the many surrounding walks. The Derby Arms, half a mile down the road, serves lovely food and is a very friendly place to spend an evening. Will definitely return to Rose Cottage!

  • "A beautiful old characteristic cottage that is comfortable and cosy."

    My favourite spot was the window seat to read, or take in the view of the lovely cottage garden and beyond. Located in a quaint small village with a great country pub serving beautiful food and a community shop to get all your basic needs. We visited Cartmel and Grange over Sands which are well worth a visit and just a short drive away. Coniston was a longer drive but again absolutely beautiful. A peaceful and relaxing week had by all. Not forgetting to mention the lovely welcome gifts and great communication from the hosts. Thank you again!

    Hi Claire, many thanks for your lovely feedback. We are so pleased you a had a relaxing and peaceful time in the cottage. Thanks Sara & Paul Property Owner

  • "The cottage is very damp with wet patches on the bed head wall (second bedroom) and damp patches in the sitting wall to the left of the fire place."

    The smell of damp is strong and unpleasant, the owner seems surprised we complained, to mask the damp smell there are 2 strong air fresheners in the cottage and a small dehumidifer in the cupboard under the stairs. The fan in the bathroom does not work and the electric towel rail did not work for the last 4 days of our stay, water leaks from the shower screen onto the floor. The steam when showering, with the window open, produces excessive condensation on all the hard surfaces it is wet to the touch, mould is visible on the bathroom ceiling above the window. The owner controls the electric heating remotely, we were cold so increased the radiator temperatures which were then turned down remotely. The landing radiator was set at only 7degrees C (Frost Setting), when we increased the temperature it was again turned back to the frost setting remotely. Further examples of damp in the kitchen include a soggy wet cardboard box of dishwasher tablets under the sink, the smell of damp when opening the top kitchen cupboards all the plates and bowls felt cold and clammy, bubbling paint and rusty metal showing through on the top of the microwave oven. The owner claimed that a slipped tile that was causing the damp, the damp problem is far more than just a 'slipped tile', the whole cottage feels clammy and damp. It is an old cottage but that is no excuse for this level of dampness, we have lived in a 200 year old cottage which not damp. The cottage looks ok superficially but the pervading damp made this property the worst Sykes cottage we have stayed in.

    We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Rose Cottage, but hope the you were able to enjoy the surrounding beautiful locations and lakes during your stay . Please note that your vocal dissatisfaction from the outset prompted us to offer you the opportunity to be refunded and relocate which you did not take advantage of. Then our builder attended and found only a loose tile which he fixed and a broken fan which could have contributed to some of the suggested issues. To clarify, the radiators are maintained at 20 degrees and we are happy to adjust them whenever guests request, which you did not. Clearly we will take note of your comments and as ever strive to improve, although most of our guests enjoy the cottage and all it has to offer. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week at Rose Cottage."

    The cottage itself is really pretty and extremely cosy with everything you would need for a comfortable stay and the secure cottage garden is perfect for relaxing in with both sun and shade as required. And the neighbours are amazingly friendly. The location is perfect for exploring the lower lakes and we enjoyed visiting Grange over Sands and Cartmel, just a few miles away. We went on the steam train and took the boat up to Bowness which is really pleasant. There is a local pub about 1/2 mile away that does nice food and an outside pizza oven two nights a week. At the back of the pub is the community shop, run by volunteers, which sells everything including wonderful homemade cakes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

    Hi Gordon, Many thanks for your kind remarks and so glad you enjoyed your stay at Rose Cottage. Property Owner

  • "We had such a lovely time staying at Rose Cottage."

    Set in a small very quiet village with a local shop & pub, it was so lovely to sit out in the garden area with a coffee listening to the birds or just nothing at all! There were lots of walks in the village for walking my golden retriever Scout. We visited Halecat gardens on a morning walk from our cottage. It was a great location to be based for exploring the wider Lake District as well. We visited many wonderful places including, Bowness on Windemere, Ambleside, Grizedale forest, Brown Howe, Tarn Hows, Hawkshead, Cartmel and Grange over sands. Cartmel and Grange over sands are a 10 minute drive and definitely worth the visit! Scout loved our walk through Grizedale and Tarn Hows is certainly one of the most beautiful sights I've seen in a while. The cottage was a perfect cozy place to return to for evenings and had everything required for cooking an evening meal. The TV was a smart TV with all apps you would need to pick a film or a series. The garden was secure and gated for Scout and the neighbors were very friendly. One thing to consider is that to enter and exit the village you do have to turn off the A590 which is a very large 70mph dual carraigeway. A little nerve wracking at first without a slip road to turn left but it has a central area to wait in if turning right out of the village. Just something to note before booking if you wouldn't be comfortable with this.It was perfectly manageable especially after doing so for a whole week. Thank you so much for having us! Scarlett, Kayleigh and Scout

    So good to hear you enjoyed your time at Rose Cottage. Its a good point about the turn off from the A590. There is an underpass that can be accessed by making the left hand turn for Meathop and Ulpha as you approach. It cuts back under the road and avoids the need to cross the fast moving traffic stream, which can be unnerving in summer time with all the holiday traffic. Many Thanks for your lovely comments on the cottage and locality. Sara and Paul Property Owner

  • "I booked a four week stay at Rose Cottage (24/02/23 - 24/03/23) and I cannot thank Paul and Sara enough for the care they have put into ensuring their holiday cottage has all that is required for a comfortable stay."

    I never wanted for anything. My stay was not for holiday purposes, so I required everything you would need to look after yourself during that period of time. I was not going out for dinners or sightseeing, I was working. Simple things such as being able to cook meals for myself and having the necessary implements to do so, was a huge benefit. So many times I’ve been in holiday homes where essential items such as saucepans are missing or not supplied, or simple items such as tea towels/hand towels are not provided, which can all make for a very frustrating stay. That was not the case at Rose Cottage - I had everything I could need. Also, being allowed to have my pet cat stay was a huge plus. I also loved the fact Paul and Sara contacted me, prior to my arrival, to ask whether I wanted their cleaners to come in on their regular scheduled days or if I’d like to arrange something else (due to the length of my stay). I asked that I be allowed to keep the home tidy myself, and they were happy to accommodate this request by providing additional bedding, linen, cleaning products, etc. I felt that Paul and Sara fully understood and respected my “do not disturb” request, and were completely accommodating in that regard. Rose Cottage and its owners, Paul and Sara, made my stay feel very homely and comfortable, and I would highly recommend to anyone, whether it be for a short or long stay, or for holidays or work purposes. PS. Even the neighbours were lovely; very friendly and helpful. PPS. The village community shop is a great little place to pick up any essentials, and the lovely ladies who run it were very friendly and helpful.

We rang the number provided and spoke to the owner and we where told that there should be a new Iron in a box. We told the owner that it could not be found anywhere and was told that was all he could do for us. This was disappointing as other than that everything else was perfect.

The property

This quaint whitewashed semi-detached cottage rests in the village of Witherslack in the Lake District, looking as though out of a fairy-tale, this picture-perfect cottage will be a perfect home-from-home for your trip to the Lakes.

Rose Cottage is an ideal property for a small family or some avid walking friends wanting to test their limits on the peaks and fells in this wonderful area.

Find yourself relaxing in the evening in the snug sitting room, where two sofas await you after a brisk walk, rest your feet and warm them with the woodburning stove set in the fireplace, and flick on the Smart TV.

Expect to find exposed wooden ceiling beams throughout, and classic wooden cottage doors continuing the idyllic country style, offset by bright white and cream walls and modern fittings.

A fitted kitchen/diner houses all the cooking essentials you’ll need to prep some tasty meals, or prepare a picnic so you can eat your lunch with a spectacular view on a hillside in the Lakes, whatever you choose the cream units and wooden worktops will be a delight to work with.

Set up the dining table and gather the party around to share a lovely meal, before enjoying a drink outside in the enclosed garden taking in the last bit of sun and warmth of the day in the summer months.

Come upstairs when your eyes feel heavy and find two bedrooms on the first floor and the family bathroom; choose from a double or a twin room, both enjoying delightful bed linen and furnishings, creating a wonderfully calming area to wind down in at the end of the day.

The bathroom benefits from a bath with a shower over it, so if you need a moment or two of self-indulgence then treat yourself to a soak in the tub.

Get on your bikes and set off on a bike ride out towards Lake Windermere and enjoy the sights and landscapes from your two wheels stopping at one of the many quaint cafes or tea rooms on the way for some well-deserved cake.

From Lakeside, hop on the Windermere steamer cruises and head all the way up to Ambleside, experiencing the lake from the water, or visit Bowness-on-Windermere to see the wonderful Beatrix Potter Experience and meet Peter Rabbit and friends.

Discover the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and enjoy a steam train ride, before marvelling at the amazing creatures in the Aquarium of the Lakes.

Rose Cottage is perfect for families, couples and friends to spend a delightful rural retreat in the Lakes.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Cartmel 6 miles, Grange Over Sands 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.
