General Description

Rose Cottage in Bassenthwaite is a delightful end terraced cottage sleeping up to four people in two comfy bedrooms. Dating back to the 1850s it has bags of characterful details yet all the modern comforts you'd expect from your holiday home.

On arrival at Rose Cottage guests are greeted by the main door with porch way inside where there is plenty of room for muddy boots. Moving through to next door you reach the lovely cosy living room. There is a large brown leather corner sofa for curling up and enjoying a roaring fire in the open stone fireplace or for enjoying a good book. The living room has a flat screen TV with Freeview and the owner has thoughtfully left a selection of books and reading lamps with which to enjoy them.

The kitchen and dining area is accessed through one of the lovely latched doors. The kitchen is well equipped with a double oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer and all the crockery and utensils you're likely to need for your stay. There's a handy utility area housing a washer/ dryer and plenty more hanging space for coats and floor space for footwear. There's a lovely dining table for four people which looks out onto the garden, an ideal spot to discuss your Lake District adventures.

Heading up the winding staircase via the living room takes you to the two bedrooms and bathroom. Firstly to the delightful master bedroom with its large built-in wardrobes and bedside drawers. It's a wonderful room with a gorgeous view out over the garden to the fells beyond from its window seat. Moving on to the twin room which has a chest of drawers for your bits and bobs and yet another picture perfect window.

On this floor is the fresh modern bathroom with its contemporary suite. It boasts a large "p"shaped bath with a lovely powerful shower. Ideal for soaking away any aches and pains from long mountain rambles. The window out on the landing looks to the rear of the house onto a working farm where children will love watching the comings and goings while adults will, no doubt, love the views to the fells in the distance.

Moving outside there's a lovely mature garden with glorious shrubs and thoughtful planting providing year-round colour. Lucky the guests who visit while the clematis and roses are in bloom. There's garden furniture for enjoying sunny morning cuppas, evening meals or just a sunset glass of wine while soaking up the ever changing view of the western flank of Skiddaw.
