Roseville is ideal for a family holiday. Situated on the outskirts of the village of Gosforth, this light, bright holiday cottage offers comfortable self catering accommodation for up to 6 people and is a perfect base from which to explore the Western Lake District.
The beautiful valley of Wasdale is a ten minute drive away, home to England's deepest lake (Wastwater), highest mountain (Scafell), smallest church (St Olaf's) and the world’s biggest liar competition (each November, in the Santon Bridge Inn).
Eskdale is another pretty valley, only 15 minutes away, with hundreds of river and mountain walks. It also houses a terminus for the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway - a popular miniature railway that travels seven scenic miles to the coastal fishing village of Ravenglass. Muncaster Castle, Gardens and Owl Centre is ten minutes away and has lots going on all year round, especially for children. The sea is about two miles from Gosforth and at low tide there are long expanses of sand on which to play and walk. By the seafront are a golf course and bowling green.
The centre of Gosforth village is just a 5 minute walk, there are shops selling groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, alcohol and newspapers and a bakery selling fresh bread and pies. There are also five pubs, serving food and real ales in the village.
