  • "Very cost, well equipped cottage with parking alongside."

    Great place to spend a week, with Lakes & coast within a short drive

  • "This cottage was very well appointed and had everything necessary for a self-catering holiday."

    We particularly appreciated the little enclosed garden with table and chairs so we could sit outside with our dog in the evening sunshine. The sitting-room was very comfortable with two large sofas and the kitchen had a large table for meals, and even a dishwasher and a washing machine/tumble dryer if required. The cottage was situated in a quiet village and the neighbours were very friendly. The Derby Arms Pub was within walking distance and provided evening meals. The location of the cottage was conveniently situated for touring the southern lakes with a good road network nearby.

    Really cosy and a home from home. The house was clean and the beds were really comfy. Well equipped kitchen was perfect for cooking meals in the cottage and the courtyard garden was such a pretty space to sit and relax and watch the birds. Would definitely return!

  • "A beautiful cottage in a lovely village."

    Incredibly well-furnished with everything you could possibly need. Cosy wood-burning stove. Spotlessly clean on arrival. Quick and easy access to the best parts of the lakes. Highly recommended.

  • "Rose Cottage was fantastic, already looking at a few dates to come back again!"

    Great location quiet location within the Lake District, Witherslack seemed a quiet place, which was great for us, we didnt explore the immediate area, but used our car to get to other places which was handy - very close to Grange on Sands & Cartmel, & about 30 minutes from Windermere. The cottage itself is beautiful, a little old-y vibes, which we loved - everything worked perfect & the cottage is very well equipped, I cant think of anything that wasnt there! So grateful it is dog friendly, with an enclosed space he could explore! We had minimal contact with the owners, as we didnt seem to need to contact them for anything - however the contact we did have, they were lovely & very polite.

  • "Rose Cottage is full of character and has a homely feel."

    The location is perfect with views of the beautiful countryside. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing break and Lake Windemere is within a short drive. There are some good cycling routes from Witherslack and we enjoyed fishing on the Ulverston Canal. Lots to see and do. Covid-19 many parks and attractions are online pre-booking only, some already fully-booked during our stay (Aug 20). So plan ahead for your trip. We would definitely recommend Rose Cottage and will be returning.

  • "A lovely cottage with quiet surroundings and easy access to lots of low level mountain walks."

    We found it very homely with very comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen. Could not fault anything. The weather was not kind to us but after lighting the fire and a good shower we were ready for dinner either locally or cooking in. We would book the cottage again if we are in the area.

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 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.

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.
