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 spent 2 nights here, using a Groupon Voucher, we would never have known about the place otherwise. Had a lovely greeting upon arrive from John and Rufus the dog. We had room 7 which was somewhat small but otherwise spotless and could not fault it or the ensuite apart from the size but as we were only sleeping there... More

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

Stayed here the weekend Fri 5th Sat 6th September. Very comfortable room with all we needed (Living space, kitchen, bed and shower room). No complaints. Maybe Black pudding instead of a tomato with breakfast would be nice. Lots of choices for breakfast. Would certainly come back again.

We passed through for one night's B&B and were very happy with everything. The rooms are not large but for a short stay are perfectly fine, clean and comfortable. The owners are very friendly and there is a large garage for bike storage. It is a quiet area but is only a 5 minute walk to the town. A great... More

The room was dull and very small. The bed linen was clean but the duvet was dubious. It did not smell fresh. The plumbing was dodgy. The electricity was cut off for the day so could not even make a cup of tea. Tea making facilities were not convenient . There were no evening meals. Not a comfortable stay, went... More

I cannot believe this review - the weekend this couple stayed with us npower turned off the power to the whole area - nothing we could do. We apologised an advised guests when they checked in of the situation. This couple did leave early due to 'family reasons' they were very happy when they left and said they had really... More
