No 1 Rose Cottage
Owners Lorraine and John offer couples one of the finest and most popular Lake District Cottages, created especially for those special romantic breaks and holidays. Recently refurbished the cottage now benifits from a new kitchen, bathroom and the thoughtful addition of a dressing room.
Imagination and great flair for design have culminated in a holiday home that places No1 Rose among the best in the Lakes, as recognized by its Visit England 5 Star award and the many guest comments. The welcome is warm, with fresh home baked cakes for guest's arrival.
Set on the edge of Bouth, this 17C cottage is a true retreat, where you will find peace in the surrounding countryside, relax in the 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 lakes, forest, fells and mountain to the north, and to the south the rolling meadows of the peninsulas and the south lakes coast.
The Living Spaces
From the sunny garden you enter into the sitting-dining room. The furnishings and decor ooze with charm, offering a cosy and romantic room to snuggle up after a day walking the fells. Attention to detail is evident, with the dressing and lighting setting just the right mood. A plump leather sofa is perfect to kick back in, read a good book or take in a movie and, come winter months the roaring log burner adds atmosphere and warmth.
The burnished oak table demands a fine meal, which you can prepare in the excellent fully fitted kitchen. Outside is a small utility room with laundry facilities.
Beds & Baths
The bathroom is on the ground floor and is complete with a relaxing spa bath, overhead shower and washbasin. The WC is separate, and upstairs.
The double bedroom, with the added luxury of a separate dressing room, is comfortable and beautifully furnished with a King size French bed, crisp linen and where the view of the garden fills the window.
The garden overlooks the meadow and far woodland where with the sun shining is perfect to relax or barbecue.
In Summary - Each little detail about No1 Rose Cottage is superb, making this 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 and well deserving of the Visit England 5 Star award.
Out & About
Bouth lies just 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.
A very short walk from the cottage is the excellent White Hart Inn. Warmly hosted by Nigel Barton, he offers one of the finest cellars of local ales along with robust pub grub, both served up by the glow of roaring log fires under a canopy of blackened oak beams.

Rose Cottage is a truly exceptional find. Everything you could ask for and a bit more besides, made for an idyllic week away. Even the weather was good helping to make a very memorable stay. Great welcome and food at the local inn.
Thank you for everything.
