Pull on your walking boots, pack a picnic and head off in any direction on fabulous Lakeland walks from this cottage in the village of Elterwater. Sleeping four guests, and also welcoming canine companions, the two-bedroom abode is in a superb setting for exploring the picturesque lakes of Elter Water, Loughrigg Tarn and Windermere. It is also just 4 miles from vibrant Ambleside and 8.5 miles from the village of Grasmere, where English poet William Wordsworth lived.

Let yourselves into this inviting retreat via the front door and porch and find yourselves in a homely lounge, which still reveals some of its old timbers. Light the open fire on chilly days and toast in its warming glow as you chat about the day’s adventures. Find a film for everyone to enjoy on the TV or play your favourite tunes through the mini music system before deciding whose turn it is to whip up the next delicious meal. Make your way through to the kitchen/diner, which has a beamed ceiling and flagstone floor, to prepare your feast then gather around the table in here to enjoy it. At the end of each superb day away, climb the stairs up to the two bedrooms. These include a king-size with an en-suite shower room, and a twin. A family bathroom and a handy drying cupboard are also up here. Carry your morning coffee out to the patio in front of the cottage on fine days. Open a bottle of wine in the garden to the rear of the property on summer evenings.

Spend mornings shopping in charming Ambleside, which has many independent outlets, boutiques and galleries. Take a horse-drawn carriage or walk 1 mile down to Waterhead to hire an electric or rowing boat or to enjoy a relaxing cruise out on Lake Windermere.

The living room was very dark, the dark furnishings and dark carpet did not help and the sofas/ chairs were not comfortable. The picture on the website very misleading. The bathrooms were excellent and a lot of equipment in the kitchen which was great.

Rose Cottage is in a great location for the central fells, many walks from the door. Comfortable, with everything you need.

Lovely property with tons of character. One if the single beds was on a bit of a slant causing the occupant to slide slightly throughout the night. But apart from that we loved it.

We had a great holiday. The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. The only thing I would point out is that the allocated parking space was too difficult of access and very tight to get to with a very narrow passage between buildings and as a result we didnt use it. We had to find an alternative space which isnt easy in Elterwater.

Rose cottage, although only 3 stars turned out to be extremely cosy and comfortable, much better than we expected as we were late booking our stay and not much choice left. Except for a few squeaky doors which we fixed. Its in a great position walks from the door and pub. Excellent food at the Eltermere inn and Stove restaurant. We will return.

The location of the cottage in the centre of Elterwater is fabulous. The cottage was cosy and well equipped. Our only concern was that the designated parking area was extremely difficult to access. With a narrow gateway which needed to be reversed out of with someone guiding. Difficult in a medium sized car or larger.

No complaints regarding the standard of the property. One minor issue with the TV which was dealt with quickly and satisfactorily. Beautiful location.

We had a great time and generally very comfortable. When we arrived we felt the front room was a little stark - we rearranged the sofas around the fire to make it more cosy. A few little things - wind up torch did not work, fridge needs a new bulb and kitchen needs some tongs. And its a very noisy mattress - no way you can get in and out of bed Read morequietly!!! And its just possible there is a mouse (I hope its a mouse- it is next to a cafe) in the boxed in water pipes in the ceiling of the lounge. There were scurrying noises from there when neither of us were in the bathroom so it wasnt water. The dog thought there was something too and he didnt react to the water noises!!! We didnt see anything or any evidence of anything, but of course its old so there will be many ways in. Hide

Really enjoyed our holiday at Rose Cottage. It was in an excellent location and it had everything we needed. The bathrooms were excellent and the rest of the cottage was ok but not quite up to the same standard. The double bed was comfortable enough but the springs were extremely noisy when moving about.

Parking place was almost impossible to access I damaged my wing mirror as it was so narrow & to turn around to come out forwards was difficult & ours was a vw tiguan. The other couple had to park their car about half a mile away & walk back.
