Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Rose Cottage is a lovely Georgian cottage with great views over the surrounding countryside. Ideal for couples or small families this cottage has two bedrooms - one double and one twin. Downstairs is an open plan kitchen and sitting room area with open fire. These two areas are separated by a spiral staircase leading to the bedrooms. The bathroom is downstairs and has bath with shower over. The garden is enclosed and is a lovely area for sitting out.
Lamplugh is a great starting point for exploring the rest of the Lake District. There are walks from the front door and Loweswater Lake is just three miles away - with an award winning pub at the far end! For cafes, pubs and shops, Cockermouth is ten minutes away. Other activities nearby include pony trekking, golf, climbing, abseiling, fishing, canoeing and mountain biking.

The Lake District
The Lake District is a great place to come on holiday. There is beauty in all the seasons, from frosty weather in Winter where you will occasionally see sheep huddled under a blanket of snow, to the long balmy evenings in the Summer. My favourite time of year is September and October where the Autumn colours are magnificent. The daffodils in March/April and bluebells in May are just beautiful, and very restful.
Scafell is England's highest mountain and a half hour drive takes you to the bottom, ready for the big climb up. The thing about the Lake District is that all the mountains here are manageable in a (sometimes long) day. If you don't fancy big climbs, then there are lovely walks through woods and alongside the lakes.
For a bit of adventure there is plenty to suit every level of experience - rock climbing, canoeing, abseiling, mountain biking, pony trekking and Go Ape at Whinlatter. All these experiences within half an hour of Croft House.
There are some superb stately homes, many of which are still lived in. Muncaster Castle is my favourite but there are plenty of others to choose from.
And if you have kids there is an indoor play area at Cockermouth (if it's raining). I like Trotters Exotic Animal Farm at Bassenthwaite. The outdoor play area at Whinlatter is amazing, and free (although you need to pay for parking). There is an aquarium at Maryport which is worth a visit (again, good if it's raining).
Other activities include rowing on the lake at Derwentwater (Keswick), go karting at Maryport or Rowrah, museums at Whitehaven and Keswick (I particularly like the Puzzling Place in Keswick, my kids like the Pencil Museum in Keswick and the Beacon at Whitehaven).
We go to the Kirkstile Inn at Loweswater for food. Cockermouth also has some very good restaurants - the Quince and Medlar is a veggie restaurant with a good reputation. The Bitter End is a good pub with good food.
Cockermouth is a lovely town with independent shops and a Sainsbury's. If antiques are your thing, you can spend a happy couple of hours browsing in Cockermouth. There is a small cinema here too, but if you want a multi-screen cinema, go to Dunmail Park in Workington. Workington also has high street shopping.

The cottage was nicely decorated and well equipped but the fridge was so tiny it was not at all practical for a self catering holiday. Just a normal standard size would be fine but this one is more l… More

"Fantastic !!!! We enjoyed our holiday so much at Rose Cottage we`ve booked next year !!!"
A beautiful cottage, excellant facilities, just far enough away but within reach of all the amenities in the Lake District.
We were so lucky as the week we stayed the weather was glorious.
Would recommend !!
