Rossendale House



Owners James and Rachel Bartholomew have refurbished this two bedroom cottage to the highest standard, work which is reflected in the Visit England higher award of 5 Star Gold Award. James is an accomplished artist and member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists and a member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Art, where along with tasteful decor and furnishings you will find in the cottage a selection of his fine prints and paintings. To see more of James's work visit his web site at www.jamesbartholomew.co.uk/

The cottage lies on the edge of the village, a few minutes walk to the central square. From the lane, large double gates open into the private courtyard where you can park two cars and enjoy the patio garden. 


The Living Spaces

Enter via the scullery, where you have laundry facilities and plenty of space for boots, bits and bobs. From here you go through to a good sized dining room. There is a large table, a real flame gas fire and a big comfy leather sofa and a flat screen TV, all perfect for gathering and dining with friends or family.

Off the dining room is a very well fitted kitchen with excellent units, granite work tops and a Britannia range cooker with double oven and gas hobs.

From the dining room you also access the main hall across which lies your sitting room. Large sofas, a huge bean bag, a big wide screen TV and a real flame gas fire to give atmosphere in winter, along with French doors where you can spill out into the patio garden, all combine to make the perfect space to relax whatever time of year you decide to visit.



Bedrooms & Bathrooms

From the hall stairs lead up to the first floor landing. Here you have a very comfortable double bedroom which lies next to the main bathroom, with bath, hand shower, separate shower cubicle, basin and WC. This can be accessed from the master bedroom and made en-suite. There is also a lovely twin bedroom with its own en-suite shower room with basin and WC.


Garden Spaces

The cortyard is gravelled with raised beds planted with bushes and shrubs. During spring and summer it makes a delightful, private palce to relax, enjoy a good book or set up the barbecue for some alfresco dining.

For me this is a perfect retreat for couples or small families offering first class accommodation, easy living all with the added benefits of the excellent wining and dining that Cartmel has to offer.



Out & About

The village just about has everything you could want for a holiday destination. Picture perfect there are four excelent pubs along with celebrity favourite, Simon Rogan's l'Enclume. Awarded two Michelin stars and voted the 2015 Good Food Guide’s No1 UK restaurant, this is a must for special occasions.

There are plenty of easy walks from the village. A favourite is to climb high up onto Hampsfell with its panoramic views across the Morecambe Bay, then descend down to Grange Over Sands or explore the tracks running through Eggerslack Woods.

A great day out is to take a Segway off road tour. The offices are by the car park and the reviews so far from our guest make this a must for a bit of fun.

Your Say

Dear John,
Julia, Luke and myself thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rossendale House, it's a lovely property in an ideal location. We found it to have all of the necessary amenities and was very cosy. We enjoyed the area and will definitely go again.

Hi there this is just to let you know we had a wonderful time at Rossendale House Cartmel.
Accurate description, very comfortable and excellently appointed. Unfortunately we both succumbed to winter virus but found the local medical centre so helpful and what better place to just hole up, warm, with close access to pub/restaurants serving medicinal mulled wine! We shall definitely book again.
Once again thank you for a great break
Tudor & Jo Townsend
