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.

"Glad to be back at our Lakes escape"
This was a return visit to Rose Cottage, and it was as lovely and well appointed as we remembered from our first visit in 2012. The cottage is superbly located for the Northern/Western lakes, far from the madding crowd and excellent if you have a dog as there are walks onto the fells in all directions from the door. The cottage is fitted out in contemporary country style and every whim is catered for in style - from the reclining leather sofas in front of the wood burner/TV, and kitchen with everything you need to cook up a great meal (including Le Creuset casseroles and Denby tableware) - to the extremely comfortable beds and luxurious bedding, not forgetting the top notch bathroom with spa bath (a great bonus after a day walking the fells). There is also beautiful garden with bbq & chimnea which is a great place to relax in fine weather. The village has a lovely little shop/post office/café and its own community pub & microbrewery where the natives are friendly and welcoming and the food is hearty, traditional and generous! And the riverside walk to the picturesque neighbouring village of Caldbeck can be rewarded with a cream tea, a fine pint of real ale or a tasty lakeland ice cream! A real home from home, can't wait to return again!

Rose cottage caters for everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break, the spa bath is amazing and just adds to the luxury. The cottage is of high quality and standard, no cutting corners here!! Cleanliness 5* , Dogs are allowed at Rose cottage but you would never know they had been there! .Communication with the owners is superb and they aim to please.The hamper and toiletries on arrival were a lovely touch, I could go on and on about how everything was so nice ( but I won't ). If you want to sight see around the lakes then a car is essential.
I would recommend this stunning cottage to anyone wanting a luxury country break. :)

"A hidden Gem"
What a delightful cottage in idyllic surroundings..... Made my boyfriends birthday a very special celebration. The welcome basket was a perfect little touch and made us feel very welcome. The dog had the best time and we managed to tire him out every day!!
Definitely will be going back.

"Beautiful cottage in beautiful location"
This cottage was perfect for our needs. We have usually stayed in B&B in Keswick over recent years but having the cottage gave us more flexibility, particularly since our son's friend came with us. The cottage is the perfect size for a family of four and is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The garden is lovely - our boys enjoyed some sunshine there in between revising for exams one afternoon! They also enjoyed setting the fire in the wood burner (under supervision of course!) The utility room was also very useful. We hadn't stayed in this part of the Lake District before - it feels very different to the more Southern Lakes but it was great to experience something new. We walked directly from the cottage up to High Pike - it's always good to be able to walk directly from the door. It was also very easy to drive to Keswick and towards Ashness Bridge for a more familiar walk. We ate in the pub twice - although the food was only average, the staff were lovely and the convenience makes it well worth visiting - also feels good to support the cooperative running it. I have already recommended the cottage to friends and am hoping to persuade three girlfriends to come with me for our annual school reunion - I don't think they'll take much persuasion!

"Wonderful cottage in a quiet location"
Excellent cottage situated in North Lakes but with easy access to Keswick and surrounding fells. Rose Cottage was perfect for our family of four and provided an excellent base with superb kitchen, very comfortable lounge and dinning room. Local pubs visited for beer and food included the Old Crown in the village, the Mill Inn at Mungrisdale and the excellent Snooty Fox in Uldale. Weather was fabulous with many sunny days and no rain. Great holiday.

Rose Cottage is fabulous. Feels like a home from home rather than a rental cottage. Owners have clearly put a lot of time and money into this cottage and it just makes it A+. Besides the cottage itself being great, I found the location great for exploring the Lakes and the National Forest. Plus the magnificent Old Crown pub is 60 seconds away! I highly recommend a stay here, you won't be disappointed.

"Outstanding quality and attention to detail."
This is a very high quality and very well equipped holiday cottage. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and we received a very generous welcome pack, Our dogs were made as welcome as we were and the enclosed garden was a real boon, as was the off road parking.
The cottage is et within stunning countryside and is ideally placed for local walking and access to the major Lake District locations.
The local pub/brewery is only yards away and sells excellent food and beer. The local shop/post office is also excellent.
The owners could not have made us more welcome.
We have stayed in many holiday cottages all over the UK and this is one of the best.
Thanks for the review, winter is a great time to visit also, the Jacuzzi and woodburner help a lot!
