The Cumbria/Lake District
Cumbria has to be one of the most beautiful corners of the United Kingdom.
The Lake District, which makes up most of Cumbria, is a land of contrasts. With dramatic mountains and tranquil lakes, peaceful valleys and gentle fells, this area is a wonderful place to be at any time of the year.
Breathe the fresh mountain air, take in the breathtaking scenery, get close to nature and appreciate the the region's wondrous diversity. Step out of your tent and into a landscape where the opportunities for outdoor adventure and fun are limitless.
Spectacular fell walking, mountain biking, rock climbing, sailing, canoeing, swimming, scrambling and more, are available all around you. You don't even need your car in most cases.
The Lake District is home to the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike, as well as the longest lake, Windermere, and the deepest, Wastwater. The scenary is stunning whichever way you turn, and there is something to suit everyone.
Whether you decide to make your base in the middle of bustling Keswick or the peace and tranquility of Langdale, Eskdale or Wasdale, you will be guarenteed spectacular lake and mountain locations.
Wherever you choose, you are guarenteed one thing...a very warm Cumbrian welcome.
Rose Cottage is situated in the peaceful village of Hesket Newmarket - a traditional fell village situated in the Northern Fells of the English Lake District. The area is one of the more remote and lesser known parts of the Lake District, but boasts some outstanding scenery and some of the best, less frequented walking in the whole of the Lake District. These include High Pike and Carrock Fell - both of which can be viewed from the back of the cottage.
A market cross stands on the huge and pleasant swarth of the village green, on which is kept a relic set of stocks. The green is surrounded by neatly kept cottages, mainly dating from the eighteenth century. The timeless character of the village has been preserved as a conservation area where ponies, sheep, even ducks roam freely.
Hesket Newmarket has a shop/post office, together with tearooms. The multi-award winning village pub, The Old Crown, was Britain's first co-operatively owned pub - by the villagers themselves. The Old Crown's micro brewery, the Hesket Newmarket Brewery, is located behind the pub and make it a popular place for real ale enthusiasts. The pub usually has at least 5 real ales on at any one time which are usually CAMRA award winners. The pub also serves excellent home-cooked bar meals.
Hesket also holds an agricultural show in September every year which features wrestling, horses, ponies, hounds and terriers.
Fell walking, mountain biking, cycling and horse riding are all popular pastimes in this part of the North Lakes. No car required. Just step out the cottage door...
The picturesque village of Caldbeck is only a mile away. Here the river and its tributaries provided the water for the important industrial development of the area in the 17th and 18th centuries - woolen mills, bobbin mills, corn mills, a paper mill and a brewery. The village still reflects this former industrial activity with many of the old mill buildings still in use. The Caldbeck Fells in former times were riddled with mines, long since disused.
The Cumbria Way also passes close to the village as well as two long distance cycle routes, namely the C2C (Coast to Coast) and the Reivers Route.
Other local places to eat include the Watermill Cafe and Oddfellows Arms in Caldbeck, the Snooty Fox in Uldale and the Mill Inn in Mungrisdale.
