The Cumbria region

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.

Hesket Newmarket

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.

"Wonderful cottage in secluded area"

Couldn't have asked for more at this cottage. It is warm, cosy and homely feeling. The owners provided us with everything you could need and the booklet provided was a excellent touch. It provides details of local restaurants and takeaways with a brief review, really nice thought and very useful.
Also, we were asked on the booking form whether we want the second bedroom as a double room or a twin, we selected double and when we arrived the room had been adapted to our request. This is another lovely touch that again shows the effort and care the owners put into the cottage.
We would stay again in an instant and we hope to return soon.
Thank you very much.

"Excellent accommodation in superb location"

High quality accommodation with attention to detail and modern conveniences whilst maintaining original character and charm of the property. Set in a peaceful village location and away from the tourist trail with easy access to numerous walks in surrounding hills.

"Beautiful cottage in ideal location."

We arrived at Rose Cottage after a very long drive and in the dark. We were met by a welcoming light, music playing and the heating on. There were logs ready for the log burner and a welcome basket of goodies. The décor and furnishings were simply lovely and of a very high standard. We couldn't have been more thrilled with our choice. The owners have certainly gone the extra mile to provide a perfect stay and the location was ideal for us. Although a little wet on our week, we still managed some amazing walks without having to take the car. Would thoroughly recommend.

"Gorgeous cottage in a stunning location"

This is the second time that we have stayed at Rose Cottage although we have been visiting the area for 7 years. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped and the furnishings are lovely. The wood burning stove is delightful after a long day out on the fells. The Crown Inn offers good beer, lovely home cooked food and friendly locals.
We already cannot wait to go back.

"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!

"Beautiful cottage"

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.
