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

My girlfriend and I stayed here the last weekend in September and were greeted by a lovely couple and couldn't fault anything apart from a noisy couple above us!! Which can't be helped by the owners of the b&b! Would definitely stay again!:-)

We had a two night stay with our toddler and dog and we were all made to feel very welcome. Breakfast was delicious and the room was very clean and comfortable. John and Sue offered cleaning products as our daughter had been sick on the way there and they very kindly let us use their fridge to store her milk.... More

We stayed at Rose Cottage for 1 night on a free voucher system.We love the lakes and on route to our B&B had talked of "getting out more" and returning if we enjoyed the stay. On arrival we were shown our room which was standard but nice and clean. We dropped our bags off and went out returning at 9... More

Well that's a first! We have run this guest house for 20 years and I have never had anyone complain of being damp before. Surely if the room was so bad that your clothes were damp you would have been able to smell it on arrival and then voice your concerns. I have no idea who you are or which... More
