The Cumbria/Lake District region
The Lake District is home to England's five highest mountains, England’s deepest lake, 2175 miles of footpaths, countless cycle trails, hills, valleys, rich woodlands and forests and a wealth of flora and fauna, as well as quintessential picture postcard villages and stunning scenery around every corner.
The Lake District is famed for being the UK's 'Adventure Capital'. Walking across the sands of Morecambe Bay with a guided party is an amazing experience unique in Britain.
All of the towns in the region are pleasant. Kendal and Ulverston are market towns, Ulverston also famous for its Laurel and Hardy connections and museum, Bowness and Grange waterfront-based resorts. Windermere and Ambleside are other centres. Watch also for literary connections with Beatrix Potter, Ruskin, and of course Wordsworth and the lakes poets.
The Lake District peninsulas where the lakes meet Morecambe Bay boast estuaries, abundant bird life and attractions such as the Lakeland, Motor Museum, Aquarium, and even a Zoo. The hills here are lower than the mountains of the centre but afford comparable views for less effort and in a milder, sunnier climate. At busy seasons you will notice this part of the region is quieter too.
The Grange-over-Sands / Lindale area
Lindale climbs agreeably up the lower slopes of Newton Fell from the mouth of the Winster Valley. With pubs at the top and bottom of the hill and a shop half way up it has everything you need.
The summit of Hampsfell also looks down on the village and over the Cartmel valley to the village of that name with its famous Priory and racecourse, and towards the sea at Grange. All of these are easy walks from Lindale.
Grange over sands is a seaside resort of particular charm. The Tourist office has details of guided walks across the Bay from Arnside, itself another pleasant resort, or just stroll along the promenade and watch out for the craft exhibitions there or the Edwardian festival in the summer.
You are only five minutes drive from Lake Windermere and the National Trust's access land and beach at Fellfoot park there. Take the tiny ferry or drive round to Lakeside opposite for Windermere steamers and a steam railway.
The Cumbria Cycle Way passes close to Lindale on its way round the county's coast. The tiny roads and low land of the Winster valley also make for pleasant cycling. More adventurous mountain biking is catered for at Grizedale forest a little further afield.

Lovely cosy cottage - perfect for couples gettaway. Loved the wood fired stove and rustic feel of the place. Small village shop two minutes walk away. Two pubs in village, one a bit "earthy" and the other a gastropub with interesting (but very good) menu.
Take a torch if arriving after dark. Shop shuts in early evening so bring food with you if arriving late and staying in. Cartmel well worth a visit especially if you're into all things sticky toffee.
So glad you liked the cottage and the village.
Just to say that food shops are open late in nearby Grange over Sands when the village shop is closed.

great communication with owner.lovely clean cottage, everything you need is there. regular buses to grange and kendal and further afield, only £25.00 for a week mega gold bus ticket that you can go anywhere in cumbria with, no need for a car. lindale arms pub is great and only 2 mins walk away. small shop in village sells everything you need and only 1 minute from cottage. fantastic butchers and bakers in grange over sands. lots of lovely walks on doorstep. when the evenings draw in you would be best carrying a torch with you as there are not many street lights and some roads unlit.

A truly fantastic cottage, in a superb location. Everything my Girlfriend and I could ask for in a holiday cottage. Village of Lindale is tranquil place with 2 very good pubs to relax, eat and drink in. Of note is the Lindale Inn (2 minute walk from cottage).
Rose Cottage is an ideal base if you wish to explore the Lakes. Log fire is a treat to come home to after a good day of activity. Fully recommend Grizdale forest for mountain biking and Go Ape. Cumbrian Coastal Path runs through Lindale with many other public paths routing back to Rose Cottage -OS Map in the cottage - bonus :)
