This spacious, luxury, detached & secluded house has 4 large en-suite bedrooms and is located in the small village of Rosgill in the North East Lake District National Park.

Rosgill is just over a mile away from the nearest villages of Shap and Bampton and 20 minutes drive from Ullswater Lake where Trip Advisor have located Rose Farm (we've asked them to move their location, but no success).

The house sleeps up to 8 people in 4 en-suite bedrooms and is sumptuously furnished to a very high standard making it an ideal place for groups of friends, large families and couples who like lots of space.

You can see more photos and book online via our own web site-holidaycottagescumbria (we're not allowed to put a link).

Rose Farm is a stunning house in a stunning location with truly spectacular views. It really does have the triple wow factor and the guest comments posted on our 'reviews' page reveal that many guests believe that the house, views, scenery and location are actually even better than they appear in our photographs.

The house is presented and equipped to the highest standards and still retains much of the character of the original old farmhouse. The house is heated by a new state of the art oil fired central heating system that provides thermostatically controlled under floor heating. There is also a roaring double log burning stove in the large sitting room and lovely warm Aga in the kitchen. Heating is included in the price and the Aga is left on all year round.

Rose Farm has 2 bedrooms downstairs and 2 upstairs. The spacious, oak beamed 'main bedroom' occupies what was once the entire upstairs of the original farmhouse. Originally 2 bedrooms this lovely room has a super king-sized bed, plenty of storage space and a gorgeous en-suite bathroom at the end of its own short, private corridor. The bathroom has a cast iron roll topped free standing bath with 'claw feet', separate shower, lavatory, basin and heated towel rail.

The 2nd upstairs bedroom is equally lovely and spacious. This bedroom has windows & wonderful views on 3 sides and is furnished with quality solid oak furniture, a solid oak king sized sleigh bed and the en-suite bathroom has a powerful high quality German made shower, lavatory and basin.

The large beamed sitting room is full of character and runs the full length of what was once the original main attached barn and looks out to the garden on one side and on the other side has spectacular views across the valley, river and to the mountains beyond. This sitting room has 3 separate seating areas, a roaring log burning stove the delightful study/library off the main sitting room overlooking the beautiful garden is another ideal place to relax and unwind. For those wanting a different view, a 40” LCD TV and DVD are also provided. Further entertainment comes in the form of the watching the red squirrels, deer and other wildlife that frequent the garden and grounds on both sides of this gorgeous room.

Wi-Fi is include free of charge and even extends to the 2 seating areas in the garden.

Downstairs the newly fitted country cottage, 'shaker' style kitchen has an original Westmorland green slate floor and is fully equipped with everything you will need for luxurious, modern living and entertaining.

The classic twin oven Aga is left on constantly throughout the year providing a lovely ambient warmth and the unbeatable taste of Aga cooking. The kitchen also has a twin oven electric cooker with 4 ring ceramic hob and grill, a microwave and dishwasher.

Quality German appliances are fitted and the kitchen has 2 large fridge freezers including a new double-door, American style fridge freezer to ensure you have plenty of chilled and frozen space. Quality crockery, glasses, cutlery, kitchen equipment & utensils for 8 people are all supplied and the long oak dining table has ample space for 8 people.

Red squirrels often join the dozens of wild and rare birds that come right up to the 4 kitchen windows to feed from the bird feeders.

The 3rd bedroom has a beautiful antique burr walnut king sized bed, en-suite bathroom and spectacular views out of the 2 windows.

The 4th bedroom has 2 French antique single beds, en-suite bathroom with separate shower and bath and also has spectacular views across the valley to Swindale and Riggindale.

A separate, large utility and cloak room has a washing machine, built in cupboards for coats and boots and as the boiler is sited here, it's also an excellent drying room too.

Rose Farm has a unique location high up on the side of the Lowther Valley with views up the unspoilt and spectacular valleys of Swindale and Haweswater. The stunning mountain horizon and backdrop of Kidsty Pike (2533ft), High Street (2710ft) and Harter Fell (2438ft) offer magnificent Lakeland views that you will never forget. England's 2nd longest and arguably most beautiful lake-Ullswater is just 8 miles away.

The stunning location is ideal if you want to explore some of the Lake District's quieter yet still spectacular scenery & walks

Even though the house enjoys such an enviable secluded location, visitors are not spoilt for good quality places to eat and drink locally. The picturesque villages of Bampton and Bampton Grange are less than 2 miles and 5 minutes drive away. Here you will find a useful village shop and post office and a great traditional village pub serving great quality locally produced food and real ale. There's several other great country pubs within a short drive, many offering great food and drinks.

We send all our guests our list of our favourite places to eat, drink and buy great local produce giving you some wonderful 'inside' knowledge and a valuable head start.

All of our holiday cottages are provided with lots of information on the local area, the Lake District and Cumbria with several books, folders, leaflets and our own personal recommendations for places to visit.

The beautiful and large Lakeland garden to the back of the house are landscaped and stocked with a variety of plants, shrubs and wild flowers. The garden overlooks open fields with great views across to the mountains & high fells and catches the sun from early morning to late afternoon. This is a lovely secluded area with table & chairs and is ideal for outdoor entertaining. At the front of the house, the south & west facing sun terrace has a large table and chairs and where drinks, dinner and barbecues can be held late into the evening and watch the sunsets over the mountains views.

The night sky in this part of the Lake District is absolutely magical and on clear nights the amount of stars viewable are mesmerizing due to the complete lack of light pollution-you might even be lucky enough to see the illusive 'Aurora Borealis' (Northern lights)!

Dog owners are welcome to bring along their dog(s) for a small charge (£20 for 1 dog, £30 for 2)-just select this option on our on-line booking system at the time of booking. Non pet owners can rest assured that we spend this extra money on additional cleaning so that non pet owners would have no idea a dog has stayed at the cottage.

This is a great area for dogs with great walks from the doorstep and there are plenty of mountains, fells, fields, footpaths, woods and riverside walks where your dog can have a great holiday too. There's also a large enclosed and partially sheltered dog run in the rear garden.

Rose Farm is a stunning house in an idyllic location with stunning views where you can enjoy some quality time to relax, unwind and enjoy life!

The Cumbria/Lake District

Rose Farm is located in the small, quiet and very picturesque hamlet of Rosgill in the North East corner of the Lake District National Park Cumbria.

Rosgill is just over a mile away from the nearest villages of Shap and Bampton and 20 minutes drive from Ullswater Lake where Trip Advisor have located Rose Farm (we've asked them to move their location, but no success).

Ullswater has a huge range of activities, including sailing, kayaking, fishing boat trips and a voyage on one of the Ullswater Steamers where you can relax and enjoy spectacular panoramas including Striding Edge and Helvelyn, England's 2nd highest mountain as you sail the length of the lake, calling at different landing points en route.

Walk, cycle, sail climb, ride, scramble or just relax, this amazing place has so much to offer so many people. From woodland walks to fell and mountain trekking, cycle paths and quiet leafy lanes. Whether your pleasure is the physical challenge of conquering one of England's highest mountains or a stroll with someone you love through beautiful scenery, this landscape of ours will leave you on a natural high.

Ullswater

We send all our guests our list of our favourite places to eat, drink and buy great local produce and visitors are certainly not spoilt choice with plenty of good quality places to eat and drink locally. The picturesque villages of Bampton and Bampton Grange are less than 2 miles and 5 minutes drive away. Here you will find a useful village shop and post office and 2 great traditional village pubs, both serving great quality locally produced food and real ale. Further up the Lowther Valley is the much photographed and beautiful village of Askham where you will find 2 more great village pubs serving great local food and real ale.

Our nearest Michelin starred restaurant is the iconic Sharrow Bay which is just a 20 minute (8 miles) drive north and is located on the shores of England's 2nd longest and arguably most beautiful lake-Ullswater.

"TRULY EXCEPTIONAL ACCOMMODATION"

Our family had a thoroughly relaxing, comfortable stay at Rose Farm. This is a fabulous property, in a wonderful location and Simon, the owner is a pleasure to deal with. We would love to return here … More

Thank you Laura. Your comments and compliments are very much appreciated and we hope to be able to welcome you back soon.

"Palatial luxury and comfort within a truly magnificent setting!"

Rose Farm - Rosgill (not Watermillock) Cumbria is an absolute gem of a property that cannot fail to impressI
From our initial enquiry to completion of our holiday all correspondence has been both professional and personable.
The house offers such palatial luxury and comfort within a setting that is truly magnificent! (Check out the owners wonderful website for an array of photos and specific property details: Holidaycottagescumbria.com)
What the website cannot illustrate though is the peace and tranquility on offer here, which in this day and age is becoming a very rare commodity. The awe inspiring night skies with the abundance of shooting stars - magical!
You don't need money in your pocket to provide entertainment here, just a pair of eyes and ears in your head - and if you feel like it a pair of walking boots and the entertainment will come to you in the form of nature!
Thank you Simon for giving us a taste of a lifestyle I have dreamed of for as long as I can remember and we will certainly be recommending your properties to all of our family and friends!

What a lovely review, definitely 1 of my favourites, thank you.
It's so true what you say about the night sky and Rose Farm is also 1 of the few places in England where you have a better chance of seeing the Northern Lights due to the location and lack of light pollution in the skies above.
We're delighted you enjoyed the house and area so much and look forward to being able to welcome you back soon.

We spent 4 days in this super property. It certainly lived up to every expectation. We all felt very at home here and it was the first time I had used an Aga, great. The location was stunning altho… More

Thank you Brenda for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Rose Farm.

We're delighted that your family and your good self loved the area and Rose Farm.

Our own web site does have the correct location for Rose Farm it's just Trip Advisor that list it under Watermillock for some unknown reason and they won't allow a link to our own web site (holiday cottages cumbria dot com).
We've emailed Trip Advisor several times to ask them to correct the location to Rosgill, Lowther Valley but they never respond. Maybe your review will help!

Thank you again and we hope to be able to welcome you back soon.

Hi Sarah. Thank you for your wonderful review.
I too love watching the view change from the sitting room when the weather varies. The changing weather really does make the view across the 3 valleys look so different.

"Stunning property"

Rose Farm is probably the best rental property we've been to. Beautifully furnished, every facility you could want and a lovely location. Bedrooms are large, the kitchen with Aga is great and the living room upstairs is fantastic. Garden is lovely with lots of little areas to sit in or hide away. So good we've already booked for next year.

Thanks Fergus. I'm really pleased you all enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back next year-or sooner if we can kept you!

"Most perfect holiday cottage EVER!!"

How do I describe this most perfect of holiday cottages? I watch the TV programme 'Escape to the Country' all the time and never quite got it when some people get tears in their eyes - but now I do!! It is just so stunning it made me feel a little emotional. When imagining the house of my dreams, this is it - simply perfect! Great location for walks with the nearest 'local' a short stroll through the fields, dog friendly too (ask for the wi-fi code as there is no coverage otherwise). We used a supermarket delivery for our main groceries, they found the cottage easily. The views are breathtaking and we were blessed with beautiful spring weather throughout out stay. It was so perfect that we extended our time there by an extra day. Would we return, you bet, in a heartbeat! In fact you may find that I have never left, there were a few cute hidy holes that I just may be stowed away in as this house certainly has my heart. Thanks must go to Simon of www.holidaycottagescumbria.com for all the organisation - try his other cottages too - they are just as lovely and quaint...

Thanks Shona. You're wonderful too writing such a lovely review! We were pretty sure you'd fall in love with Rose Farm as we knew how much you appreciate the attention to detail and quality that have become our trademark in our other 3 cottages.
As always, we look forward to welcoming you back the next time you need to unwind and have some well earned relaxation.

Thanks Claire. We're really pleased to hear how much you loved Rose Farm and we're delighted that it was the perfect place for you to celebrate your birthday.

We look forward to welcoming you back in 2014.
Wising you all a wonderful Christmas
