Rose Cottage is a gorgeous cottage for six in the much-loved village of Portinscale. Recently renovated to a very high standard it has three comfortable bedrooms, ample socialising space for a family or small group and countless lovely details offering clues to its historic roots. Dating from 200 years ago it forms part of one of the oldest buildings in the village and the owners have managed to retain many of its charming features while bringing it up to date with an elegant modern-rustic eye. Views of Walla Crag from the front of the cottage will certainly get you in the mood for exploring the area.
On entry to the house, you step into a small porch area with space for hanging up coats and leaving muddy boots. The spacious living room benefits from a large TV with Sky, a DVD player and soundbar as well as two deep comfy sofas and a huge "snuggler" chair. The owners have also thoughtfully provided a selection of books to keep you amused. With Honister green slate floors and a recessed fireplace with wood-burning stove under a wonderful large original mantle it makes a most welcoming space for an evening gathering. Through from here is the large dining room there's a dining table for six and a lovely dresser with all the glassware you will need for your stay. At the back of the house is the bright modern kitchen, it's well equipped with raised fan oven and ceramic hobs, an eye height microwave, dishwasher and built-in fridge freezer. The room also has a breakfast table and four chairs for enjoying your morning cuppa. There's a handy utility room with a sink, washer and dryer and plenty of space for a dog bed.
Moving upstairs to the large landing you reach the beautifully appointed bedrooms. All of them make the most of their period details including gorgeous exposed beams and deep windowsills while having more modern touches such as heavy oak doors and furniture. The first is the larger of the two king-size rooms. It has a huge wooden bedstead with wardrobe, drawers, a wall-mounted TV and a rocking chair for enjoying a good book. The second king-size bedroom is en-suite with a delightful metal bedstead, a wall-mounted TV, two chests of drawers and an old fashioned hat stand for hanging space. The lovely en-suite shower room has a huge walk-in shower enclosure with electric shower. The twin room looks out to Walla Crag at the front of the cottage and has a wardrobe and chest of drawers.
The elegant family bathroom is a gorgeous space to relax tired fell-walking muscles either in the stunning double ended bath or in the large curved shower enclosure with mixer shower along with a huge drencher head. As it might be difficult to drag people away from this indulgent space there's also a handy extra WC on this floor too!
To the rear of the house is a small private, though not enclosed, garden area with seating for a peaceful evening's glass of wine.
