No 2 Rose Cottage
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 acolade 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.
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 pefect 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 Nigle Barton who keeps a fine cellar of real ales and serves up the very best roast beef and Yorkshire pud.

Hi John - just to say a big thanks for recommending No 2 Rose Cottage. Everything lived up to expectation and a bit more. Dealing with the Lakeland Cottage Company was a joy and the result perfect. Never been to the Lake District before - stunned by the beauty. Tell the owners well done and we will be back soon.
