Attractive cottage located in the heart of the small village of Satterthwaite, with its popular pub and with easy access to walks in Grizedale Forest.

This lovely cottage, with its quirky features, is situated in the perfect location for those who want to spend their holiday exploring the great outdoors. Grizedale Forest is right on the doorstep, and the forest’s visitor centre is just over a mile away, offering cycling routes and walks for all abilities, a renowned sculpture trail, children’s play area, cafe, and a Go-Ape climbing centre. A walk up the nearby Carron Crag gives some of the best views over Coniston and the Old Man. In the opposite direction is the delightful Rusland Valley. Both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water are a short drive from the cottage, where guests can try a range of waterside activities, from pleasurable boat trips, to windsurfing lessons. Enjoy a gentle stroll around the picturesque Tam Hows or for the hardier fell walker, the majestic and rugged Langdales are also only a short drive away. The village of Satterthwaite, with its village pub, is one of the Lake District’s secret, yet accessible hideaways.

The front door of this property opens directly into the lovely and cosy lounge, with its comfortable seating, multi-fuel burner, TV/DVD and Freesat WiFi. This room leads guests to the smart and contemporary kitchen, with its oven, hob, fridge with ice compartment, microwave, and washing machine. Leading off from the opposite side of the lounge to the kitchen, is the property’s dining room, with table and chairs, a well-stocked bookcase and French windows which open onto the garden. There is also a stylish tiled shower room with WC and underfloor heating on this floor. Stairs from next to the front door lead to the first-floor accommodation, where there are elegantly understated bedrooms. The first of these is a pretty king-size room with an attractive feature fireplace and window which affords views to the village church. The other room is single with similar lovely views of the village.

Outside, the patio garden to the rear of the property, is a lovely sunny place to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, offering bistro-style seating, as well as a bench. There is also a shed to allow guests to store bikes. There is parking for one car on the lane beside the garden wall, just next to the cottage or next to the church opposite. A gate from here gives access to the property via the patio. Please note, there is a right of pedestrian access through the back yard to the adjoining Honeysuckle Cottage

This is a lovely little house in a next to perfect location. I will be staying there again. One little word of advice. The nearest shop is a couple of miles and its a local Co-op... the nearest supermarket is a long way away.... bring enough food and drink to last.... Nice local pub.. good beer and edable food.

The cottage is in a very rural setting and offers good accommodation. The bed is extremely comfortable and we liked the enclosed garden for our dog. Loved the underfloor heating in the bathroom.

A lovely little cosy cottage in a quiet village. It's central for most of the Lakes and has a country pub serving good food about 100 metres away. Recommended.

Had a lovely 4 night break at Rose cottage. We normally stay in Bowness so this was a much more relaxed setting with some great walks and an excellent pub serving good food. Would definately stay again.

We were blessed with wonderful, dry, sunny, warm weather only getting rain in the evening after a day's walking. The cottage was comfortable and beautifully equipped. An enclosed garden/patio was great for our dog who has 'Houdini' tendencies. Loved the fact that it was possible to go for long walks straight from the from door.

We found Rose Cottage ideal for a complete get away, surrounded by the Grizedale Forest, the tiny village is an ideal base for mountain biking and long walks with the dog.

We picked up the keys from Lakeland Hideaways without any difficulty and arrived at Rose Cottage. The only negative thing we could say, and it was a very minor issue, is that there is no real parking space for the cottage. We parked on the corner next to the gate, which seemed fine as no one complained but it was on a corner of a no through road. Read more Once inside the cottage was immaculately clean and tidy and the fire had been laid, ready for lighting. The bedrooms were upstairs, up a narrow staircase, and were neat and tidy with a comfortable double bed in one and a single bed in the other. There was more than sufficient hanging space for our long weekend. Downstairs there is a dining area, shower room, kitchen and lounge with a multi-fuel fire, tv and internet wi-fi. There is a also a comfortable settee and chair. Some tea and coffee, with mini milk cartons greeted us on arrival. Outside there is a paved garden with table, chairs, and a hose for washing down the dog after walks. There is a also a log store and shed. The cottage was perfect as it was only 100 m from the local pub, the Eagles Head, which has a varied menu with locally made pies, sandwiches and a good selection of beers and wines. The log fire and staff gave the pub a warm welcoming feeling. Satterthwaite is a small village between Hawkshead and Newby Bridge, it also sits on the edge of Grizedale Forest, which has some fantastic walks for all ages and fitness. There are two walks you can take directly from the cottage into the forest, which saves you having to pay the car park fees. Grizedale also has bike rentals, a cafe, zip slides and forest sculptures. It's a great outdoor venue. From Satterthwaite you can also easily reach the ferry to Bowness-on-Windermere or go round the Lake. We had a fantastic weekend, despite drizzly and misty weather. We will be back. Hide

Lovely cottage which is perfect for a quiet break, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. Well placed to visit towns and villages of the southern lakes and local to lots of walking opportunities. A car is needed as there are no shops in the village but they are only a short drive away. Would certainly look forward to a repeat visit.
