Rose Cottage in Underskiddaw is the absolute epitome of a traditional Lakeland home. Stone built, with a cosy welcoming interior, gorgeous flower filled garden and unbeatable fell and lake views. What a treat. Sleeping up to five people in three comfortable bedrooms and welcoming up to three dogs it offers wonderful access to the fells from the back garden, and an easy drive to lovely Keswick if you don't want to be too far away from amenities. Evidence of the owners family history is woven through the house and looking out one of the hydrangea framed windows at the stunning panorama you will be able to imagine yourself in a bygone era.
The hamlet of Underskiddaw is well named and Rose Cottage sits right at the base of the mighty Skiddaw massif. Why not take the winding path through the cottage's own woodland onto Dodd Fell and then onward up to Skiddaw's summit? What a walk to have available from the back door. The cottage also sits right next to The Calvert Trust where there is an excellent accessible pool which you can use by prior arrangement, you don't even have to get in the car. It's also just a stone's throw from Mirehouse, a stately home with glorious gardens, multiple play areas and fascinating literary connections.
Sitting above the road that runs between Keswick and Bassenthwaite, Rose Cottage is ideally placed to make use of everything on offer in the area. Keswick is well known as the adventure capital of the Lakes but there's plenty more to enjoy there too. You could make use of the great range of cafes, pubs and restaurants; independent and outdoor shops; the regular market or take in a play or concert at the beautifully situated Theatre By The Lake. You could get out and about on Derwentwater either under your own steam or aboard one of the stately launches. Alternatively just spend your time being inspired by the gorgeous views of Bassenthwaite Lake, the surrounding fells and even the occasional osprey from your own lovely garden.
