- Rose Cottage is very characterful and perfect for a family holiday. The house has interesting period features and was really nicely kept. The garden is beautiful and really big - great for dogs. It had everything we needed for a week long stay - lots of parking space, kitchen equipment, washer & dryer, downstairs loo. The showers were great and the beds were comfy. The owners were kind enough to let us put 2 airbeds in the big bedroom for children. The room was plenty big enough. The big bedroom is really fab! No hair dryer though, so bring one. The house was cleaned well throughout.
The living room was a bit on the small side and we had to do some furniture shuffling, there were not enough easy chairs for everyone. Unfortunately the wifi only worked in the living room. It was lovely having a door onto the garden and the room, which was a bit stuffy at first, was better after the warm weather arrived and we had aired it out.
It was very handy being only 5 mins drive from a garage and 8 mins from Cockermouth, which has everything. On the edge of the National Park so a vehicle is a must for getting to the fells and lakes.
All in all it was a lovely stay in a fantastic house for a great price - really good value for money!
