Rose Bank Cottage is one of a row of pretty terraced cottages built around 1820. The cottage is well positioned not only for village amenities, and fell and footpath access, but also for breath-taking views across to Coniston Water.

Ideally situated, the cottage enjoys fantastic views from both the cottage garden, sitting room and master bedroom which all look out over the village and towards Coniston Water and the rolling Grizedale hills beyond.

In essence Rose Bank is ideal for two couples or a small family looking to explore the local area.

A shared porch provides access to the front door and then on into open plan living area.

The sitting room is warm and inviting with a brick and marble open fireplace which faces the comfortable sofa and chairs, and the original stone floor is rug covered. A window seat provides a great vantage point for taking in the view, there's also a TV, DVD & CD player should you ever get bored of admiring that view!

The dining kitchen to the rear is well equipped with electric hob & oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave & washer/dryer.

First floor
Upstairs the front double room has stunning views across to the lake and the rolling green hills beyond. The back bedroom can be either a double or twin, and both rooms are en suite.

Customer Comments

We had a wonderful stay at Rose Bank Cottage with our dog. The cottage is very well laid out and has everything you need, including a lovely garden to sit out and have breakfast or an evening drink. Stunning views. It is also so easy to walk into the village, with a choice of 5 pubs, or down to Coniston Water for the Bluebird Cafe. It was also great that we were able to use the Coppermines field to exercise our dog. There is so much to see and do in the Lake District and Coniston felt like a really good base. I would also recommend taking out National Trust membership as you will save so much on admissions and parking. The Lake District is so dog friendly. Don't hesitate if you are thinking of bringing your pooch with you. We had a wonderful time and will be back.
