Lovely place, Scott and Julia where both very accommodating. Breakfast was lovely with good choice. The room was brilliant, we also took our dog and it was ideal. Everything was very clean. Would love to stay again.

Short walk from town where there are lots of options for eating and drinking ! Clean and comfortable would be excellent with a bit of updating, which the owners are working on, but could not fault service and enthusiasm of Julia and her partner who were keen to give information on the area.

good location close to town and very comfortable bed. Good breakfast and warm, enthusiastic welcome. Decor is tired but as a new venture for the new owners it has potential to be a gem. I'd certainly stay again.

May I on behalf of myself and my wife thank Julia and her husband for the wonderful welcome and hospitality shown on our recent stay last months. The bad was comfy and the breakfast superb. The room was a little cold but Julia supplied a heater. Bless her. And I hope to return in the near future.

Warmly welcomed, very clean, good size bedroom and en-suite. Very secure bike storage. Excellent breakfast. Convenient for a small walk to a very good local pub/restaurant. Would reccomend even though a short walk out of town.

Wonderful stay, beautifully clean and warm on a very cold december night. The breakfast was amazing and cooked to perfection. Ideal location on the edge of Cockermouth leading to the stunning Lorton valley and Whinlatter forest, yet within easy walking distance of the market town of Cockermouth with lots of amazing, one off shops. Would recommend to anyone wanting a... More

We stayed three nights at Rose Cottage B & B.Its in walking distance of Cockermouth (the Christmas lights in the Main Street were brilliant). The rooms although small was clean and warm. Full english breakfast was hot and filling. The hosts were helpful and friendly. This is perfect for a short break. Would recommend.

We ended up running really late, and didn't check in until 23:00. John waited up for us as we started to panic that we might have to sleep in the car with a two year old! John and Susan are lovely people, really obliging and have a beautiful house. We stayed in the Studio, which was fantastic. Peaceful, relaxing and... More
