General Description

Rose Cottage is a typical whitewashed stone cottage set on a peaceful lane in the hamlet of Pardshaw, sleeping up to six people across three bedrooms. Built in 1662, its comfort is not found in modernity, but in traditional architecture, furnishing and decor.

The interior rooms are spacious and many have double aspect views. The kitchen features a dining table seating up to six people, electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, freestanding fridge-freezer and plenty of storage space. There is a WC set off from the kitchen, which contains a washing machine and tumble dryer. Views are of the courtyard to the front and lawned garden to the rear. The fabulously warped oak beams in the kitchen belie the cottage's 350 year history.

The living room is reached via the dining room, which contains a G-Plan dining table for six people and a selection of period furnishings. A tall window overlooking the garden bathes the dining room in natural light. The living room itself features an open fire, a three-seater settee with two matching armchairs, a Freeview TV and DVD player and a selection of books. The French doors open to the picturesque garden beyond.

Upstairs, are the three bedrooms and bathroom. The master bedroom is spacious and comprises a king-size bed, enormous wardrobe and cupboard space, a chest-of-drawers, armchair and en suite bathroom. It's views are over the garden towards the Loweswater Fells. The en suite contains an over-bath shower, WC and wash basin.

The two twin bedrooms sit at the front of the house and look over the front courtyard and quiet lane beyond. Each has a wardrobe and chest-of-drawers. The bathroom on the first floor contains a walk-in shower, WC and wash basin.

The comfort of the cottage is supplemented in the warmer months by the scenic garden outside. Both front and rear gardens are fully enclosed (although a determined dog may discover a way out). At least three cars can park in the front gravelled area. There is a large lawn with charming planted borders in the garden behind the house and an old kitchen garden (not suitable for young children) behind the main garden. The view from the kitchen garden is of Melbreak and the Loweswater Fells.
