  • "The cottage had everything we needed."

    It was part long weekend, part working weekend so we didn’t have any major requirements other than a place to sleep. Convenient train links to neighbouring towns. Taxis from Windermere a touch on the pricey side. (£30+) The pub in the village was advertised as open at times when it wasn’t actually opened (lunch times). The fish and chip shop is pretty good, but be mindful there are no cash points in the village. Overall really nice village and a pleasant cottage. I wasn’t here for walking on this occasion but this would be a great base for walking and i’d consider it for the future.

  • "The cottage was beautiful the view over the river and fields was stunning."

    The only downfall was with our car parked outside the door there was nowhere to put the table and chairs as shown in the listing, so we couldn't sit outside.

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay in this delightful cottage."

    It was spotlessly clean and i don’t think i’ve stayed anywhere that has been so well equipped i challenge anyone to say there was something they needed that wasn’t there. I always take my own cleaning things so i can leave the property as i’ve found it ( because normally you only get the very bear minimum) but there was absolutely everything thing needed already there. ) i would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone and we will certainly be returning. It is also in an ideal location for all the lovely towns and villages surrounding the lake district. We certainly give the cottage 10 out of 10. Thankyou.

  • "Very well equipped cottage, everything was there!"

    We only missed information about where to leave the garbage, empty bottles, etc. Furthermore, apart from the weather we had a wonderful week.

  • "Lovely and very clean with more than enough living, cooking, dining provisions."

    An excellent kitchen/ dining room. Nice touch of worm hospitality with milk + local sweet bars provided. There was coffee and tea too but we had our own. Very good location to get to town + Lake District tourist hot spots. Our only small complain is about sheets and duvet covers to be of pure cotton rather than mixture of polyester and cotton, as they felt uncomfortable specially during warm nights. However, you could always take yours.

The property

Nestled in the Lakeland village of Burneside is this semi-detached, family-friendly cottage overlooking the river, Rose Cottage.

With two bedrooms sleeping four guests, this homely cottage provides off-road parking, excellent self-catering facilities, and easy access to the Lake District National Park.

On arrival you'll find a front patio where you can peacefully watch the River Kent flow by and admire your country views with a cold beverage in hand.

Inside, a relaxing sitting room awaits with cushioned armchairs, a leather sofa, and a Smart TV, all by the warmth of an electric fire.

Stock up the cupboards in the kitchen/diner ready to whip up your best home-cooked dishes, to be enjoyed at the dining table for four.

After the day's adventures, load up the dishwasher and washer/dryer, before climbing the stairs to freshen up in the contemporary bathroom with marble-effect tiling, a bath and shower over.

The first of two bedrooms is a king-size with lovely rural views, whilst the twin bedroom is nearby, both of which are spacious with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Burneside is a wonderful holiday base where the Jolly Anglers Inn and a convenience store provide your self-catering needs; why not pack your clubs and head to Carus Green Golf Course & Driving Range?

KendalWall, Lakeland Climbing Centre is also nearby, as well as Handsome Brewery at Bowston Bridge, and the natural food shop, Humble Bumble.

The popular market town of Kendal is a short drive away where the Quaker Tapestry Museum, the medieval Kendal Castle, and the Brewery Arts with theatres, galleries, two cinemas and restaurant/bar ensure there's something for everyone.

If you're looking for a day out, head to Windermere for scenic cruises along the lake, finding familiar faces at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, or climbing up to Orrest Head Viewpoint for panoramic views.

Around this gorgeous lake you'll also find plenty of walking opportunities, hikes up Claife Heights, and the National Trust properties of Wray Castle and Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's rural farmhouse.

Ambleside and Grasmere are both nearby, or perhaps you've come to hike to the top of Scafell Pike?

Rose Cottage offers a family-friendly getaway to the Lake District National Park.
