The space

Step out of the car and it is impossible to imagine how conveniently close the village of Windermere really is. Tucked away along a quiet lane, with only a handful of homes nearby, many of which are home to local residents, Rose Cottage sits in a bubble of tranquillity.

Exclusive feel –

Sense the sophistication and upmarket styling of this home the second you step inside. Rose Cottage evokes a boutique hotel ambience whilst retaining a homely, heritage feel in keeping with the home’s period and Lakeland surroundings.

The perfect snug hideaway for bringing families together whilst also offering pockets of privacy where children can play and grownups can unwind, Rose Cottage is spread over four floors of comfortable and well-styled rooms.

Snuggle up –

Rest and unwind after your journey in the intimate and sophisticated lounge. Snuggle up on the comfy sofas and warm yourself by the crackling open fire with a glass of merlot – this is where your Lake District holiday starts! In the evening, flick on the lamps for the ultimate cosy ambience. Choose a book from the shelf, curl up and simply ‘be’. This is your time to unwind.

Entertain –

Wander downstairs where the snug lies; the perfect place for kids to enjoy their own entertainment. A cosy space with corner sofa and a huge TV, here you can hunker down with popcorn to watch your favourite movies on Netflix. The snug is also the perfect place to spend the evening playing board games and relaxing with your family.

Dine in style –

Feast your eyes on Rose Cottage’s stylish kitchen. A light, bright and modern space, fully equipped for all your culinary needs. Sociable and warm, find yourselves drawn to this delicious hub of the home. Perch at the breakfast bar and enjoy laughter and conversation as dinner is prepared. Enjoy your morning frothy coffee from the built-in Neff coffee machine or the Nespresso maker.

Gather around the table in the open plan orangery and gaze at the views over the pretty garden and sociable terrace area. Plenty of space for all the family around this table, with younger members well provisioned for with highchairs. Light simply serenades this home in every room, none more so than the orangery with its roof lantern above and windows and doors overlooking the garden. Why not take the party outside? Throw open the doors and flow out to the sunny patio and sizzle up a storm on the gas-fired barbecue.

After a day spent splashing about on the lake or adventuring at nearby Brockhole, throw your mucky attire into the washing machine hidden away in the secret utility room-pantry.

Returning to the entrance hall, sneak a peek at the stylish downstairs WC, before making your way up to discover the sleeping sanctuaries above.

Boutique chic –

Master bedroom bliss awaits on the first floor. Sink into a restful night’s sleep in the king-size bed and wake up to leafy views of the woodland through the window, ready for another day of Lakeland adventures. Store all your clothes in the dressing room, before stepping into the luxurious and grandly sized master en-suite. Enjoy a soak in the tub after a long day walking the Lake District fells. Step into the double shower for your morning wakeup call and dry off with a fluffy towel.

Make your way up the steep staircase to the upper floor, where two more sumptuous double bedrooms await. Wake up to the morning sunshine pouring in, framed through the quaint arched windows.

Step through the door to the left to discover a bright bedroom with an original fireplace and enviable views of the hills beyond. Across the way, discover another cosy bedroom, designed as a luxury single room but fitted with comfy double bed.

Serving both bedrooms, a Jack ‘n’ Jill shower room is styled in matt monochrome, complete with a rainfall shower and a heated towel rail to warm your fluffy towel.

Unwind outdoors –

Step out onto the terrace and garden at Rose Cottage. Totally tranquil against a backdrop of woodland trees, and with a large lawn where children can play outdoors. Soak up the sunshine on the paved patio, the perfect place to enjoy a glass of fizz on the warm summer evenings or those crisp blue-sky mornings for coffee and pastries. A secure summer house at the end of the garden is available to store bikes and paddleboards too.
