Nice and quiet situated cottage which is renovated with love for the detail. All bedrooms are really good sized with bathroom.

We loved to cook and eat at home as the kitchen is very well equipped.

It was a great stay and we would always love to come back.

Awesome Holiday Rental in Windermere

  • 5 of 5

I would say i m truly lucky to come across Rose Cottage in my search of an ideal holiday rental in this beautiful Eng Lakes. Travelling with my senior parents & 2 young kids, a proper home away home is my top priority. We were glad to get to stay at this perfect beautiful cottage which is big enough for my family. The amenities are practical & modern, the four rooms are clean with good linens, the cottage is having great home heating system and the most impressive is the well equipped spacious kitchen. Being conveniently located near the Windermere vibrant town, cafe, restaurant & groceries are within easy reach.. Would like to take this opportunity to thank Helen for being helpful & prompt. Looking forward to staying in this awesome holiday rental again.. Cheers!

Excellent cottage and first class fixtures and fittings

  • 5 of 5

Rose Cottage is perfectly placed within walking distance of Windermere but in a quiet lane away from traffic. It has been well maintained and all the fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard.

It can sleep 6 in comfort with additional sofa bed in basement snug.

We have no hesitation in recommending the cottage and it was a joy to stay there

Would recommend Hooked Fish restaurant in Windermere but you have to book in advance.

If out traveling go to the Punch Bowl at Crosthwaite for lunch or evening meal but slightly pricey.

Perfect Stay in Windermere

  • 5 of 5

Rose Cottage was an ideal location in the Lakes District. The Cottage could not have been any more perfect - lots of room, comfortable, well maintained, and beautifully decorated. Both couples had privacy but also shared space. The kitchen was well equipped and well designed for having dinner "at home". The coffee machine was a pleasant surprise. With proximity to the center of Windermere, walking paths to the lake, and a nearby bus stop, we were able to explore much of the area. Our stay in Windermere was excellent.

Beautiful! Will definitely be booking again and will be recommending to family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful and plenty of room for 7 adults and 1 child. Everything in the property was catered for so we didn't have to bring any extra bits with us. The area it's situated in is very quiet so perfect for relaxing and 5 mins from the main village of Windermere. The cottage was immaculate and eveything we had hoped for! We'll be booking up again very soon!

Fabulous cottage, Totally luxurious

  • 5 of 5

Its rare to find such a gem that not only lives up to its description, but far exceeds it. We have just returned from a four day stay at Rose Cottage and I must say we were so sad to leave. It is not only beautifully decorated, it is clean, welcoming and has such a high quality finish we could not fault anything. It totally lived up to its description. Although there were only two of us staying in a three bedroomed cottage, the intimacy was still superb. Its location is secluded and quiet despite being less than a 10 minute walk from the town of Windermere.

The renovation throughout has been very well thought out, it caters for either two or at least 8. The bathrooms are beautiful, the kitchen is stunning and the lounge is a cosy retreat after a long days walk. The photos of the bedrooms just do not do justice to what you find when you are at the property, they are simply beautiful, so comfortable and totally indulgent.

Absolutely everything was provided for arrival and I cannot fault the ease of contact with Helen.

The local amenities are as you would expect, but we were surprised to find that we enjoyed being in the cottage so much, we lost half a day just was that good.

In all I cannot recommend this property highly enough, we arealready lookuing to book again but need to be quick, it is proving to be a popular cottage....and with good reason !

Overall.....a superbly luxurious property.
