    “We took a punt and booked this holiday when Rose House was newly listed and had no reviews.”

    The house looked amazing on paper and we were not disappointed on arrival, the lovely copper theme is bang on trend and echos throughout the house. ...

    The house looked amazing on paper and we were not disappointed on arrival, the lovely copper theme is bang on trend and echos throughout the house. The appliances are modern and although sometimes a little complex to get your head around were great to use, the wine fridge wasn’t mentioned on the listing and was quickly bringing our tipple down to temperature. This is a good example of house Rose House adds a little touch of luxury to your stay. We unpacked our bags and took advantage of ample amounts of storage around the house. The bedrooms were well sized for our two families (4 adults and 5 kids, including 2 travel cots!) The kids quickly signed up to the WiFi, Netflix loaded on both TVs and the boys worked out how to light the beautiful Aga wood burner. A quick film in front of the fire, with the kids wrapped up in the lovely the fir throws from the lounge and everyone was off to bed for a comfortable sleep for our first night. A quick note for improvement here, although the beds were very comfortable, with high quality linen throughout, we all felt the pillows didn’t meet the same standard and needed to be a little plumper. This was probably our family preference though, so an option of a firmer pillow stored somewhere would be fab! Showers in the morning, good water pressure and hot water throughout. The boiler did well with our demand for water, while keeping the house toasty with underfloor heating downstairs, another perk! The roll top bath was a favourite of both the kids and mums alike. The bathrooms are luxurious and were stocked with soap, towels and loo roll on arrival. Heading out on the second day to fill the fridge finds Windermere Booths a 2 minute drive away and Sainsbury’s or the Co-op a five minute walk, perfect for popping out for little fancies. The petrol station in Windermere stocks the cheapest logs we could find. A walk down to Bowness is 15-20 mins downhill with a bus service to bring you home for tired legs. The welcoming Brookside Inn is literally across the road from the house, but didn’t cause any issues with noise or rowdiness. We have thoroughly enjoyed our week at Rose House, the kids didn’t want to leave! Thank you to the owners for letting us stay at your wonderful property. We will be back!
