No 2 Rose Cottage adjoins No1 Rose Cottage, where together they are two of the finest and most popular homes in the Lake District. Recently owners John and Lorraine have made many improvements to both cottages, where No 2 now has a super new bathroom along with a new utility and laundry room within the extended kitchen.

The combination of comfort, a warm welcome of freshly baked cakes and the overall quality and style has been recognised by Visit England with the highest accolade of a 5 Star Gold Award.

Set on the edge of Bouth, this 17C cottage is a true retreat, where you will find peace in the surrounding countryside, relax on the patio garden and enjoy the splendid ambience of the cottage. The village of Bouth is quiet and noted for one of Cumbria's best pubs, The White Hart. The location makes for easy exploration of the southern lakes and to the south, the rolling meadows of the peninsulas and the south lakes coast.

The Living Spaces

Approached across the path in front of No 1, the cottage enjoys a sunny aspect with a private little patio area for barbecues whilst enjoying the pastoral view.

You enter into a designer kitchen. Gleaming stainless-steel cooker, polished granite and wood work tops, slate floor, revealed stonework and quality furnishings combine to make a room as practical for preparing dinner as it is pleasant to dine in. From the kitchen there is a utility room with dishwasher, full size fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.

The sitting room is as cosy as can be with a roaring log burning stove. Cream open stonewalls and oak beams give the perfect cottage feel and the choice of ornaments, fabrics, comfy sofa and armchairs add elegance to comfort.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Upstairs the bathroom is sleek and modern with a freestanding double-ended bath, a separate shower along with WC and hand basin. The double bedroom has a pitched beamed ceiling and a fabulous king sized carved walnut French Bed, complemented by fine furnishings and crisp linen.

Garden Spaces

Although small, the patio area is really quite charming. A sun trap on bright days there are wide views across to the fields and woodland and is perfect for a pre-dinner drink or simply to take some down time from exploring our wonderful landscape. If you are lucky, come evening you may see deer crossing the meadow - wonderful.

All in all this is one of the finest cottages in the Lake District, very much for adults who may come and enjoy romantic, relaxed holidays in style and great comfort.

Out & About

Bouth lies four miles to the west of Lake Windermere, at the southern end of the Rusland Valley. Popular with visitors for a peaceful setting among low fell, it is away from the busy crowds, offering pretty local walks and cycle rides, where you can explore the country lanes and visit the deer park. The local pub is one of our best, hosted by Nigel Barton who keeps a fine cellar of real ales and serves up the very best roast beef and Yorkshire pud.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

No.2 Rose cottage is a stunning example of what a holiday cottage should be, beautifully decorated and furnished. and very well equipped. Bouth is a quiet small village but easily accessible and a good base from which to explore the region, it also has a traditional country pub serving good beer and food 5 minutes walk from the cottage.

Fantastic. The owners were very friendly and bumped into Lorraine at the local farm!

Many thanks for a lovely week. The cottage is super and you have obviously put a lot of time and effort into creating such a high quality finish - in our experience is worthy of Claridges! It was great to have the rural charm but also good quality furniture and fittings.... The best of both worlds!

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
