Booked on the basis of generally favourable reviews about location, friendly staff and quality of accommodation. Location ideal if you need the very centre of Bowness and the propietor was friendly and helpful. Key is surely quality of the accommodation and it was uniformly poor. Very limited as no public spaces apart from exclusive and rather ugly dining room; all... More

On arrival the hostess offered to take our suitcase she showed us the room which was lovely and it had a spare single bed. The hostess gave us a parking badge to park in a car for free. This car park is about a minutes walk from rose cottage. Some of the reviews say about the noise from other rooms... More

We have just stayed here for a mini break and it was lovely. Its a small B and B (5 rooms) and it's in a great location. The rooms are clean and comfortable and excellent value for money. The hostess, Kitti was really helpful and friendly and the breakfast was cooked fresh and there was plenty of it. Free parking... More

We stayed here while attending a wedding at the Old England Hotel (1 minute away). The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location 1 mile from Windermere Station and short walk to the pleasure boats on the lake at Bowness. You also get a great breakfast. I would recommend the hotel and would stay... More

We spent three nights here. It's in an excellent location with shops, restaurants and bars very close by. Kitti is a perfect hostess and very helpful. The breakfast is to be recommended. The parking permit is great and is a good money saver. We plan to return to rose cottage in the future.

We booked Rose Cottage as we'd decided to do lots of walking in Windermere. The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious. The window overlooked the church and a couple of restaurants, so we could watch the world coming and going. The host was very friendly (with a lovely little dog!) and the breakfast each day was excellent. Bowness in... More

Had a great stay here, the host, Kitty, was warm, friendly, helpful and extremely welcoming. My family and I had a fantastic time here. The place was well looked after and the breakfast was lovely! The location is central to all amenities including restaurants, this was all within a short walking distance. The rooms are nice, clean and airy. All... More

Comfortable pleasant room, friendly and helpful staff. Some noise from neighbouring pub as it was a hot night and we needed the window open, but did not spoil our stay. Managed to store bicycle for is in back yard, plus there was free parking available in near by car par. Good hearty breakfast.

Had an excellent stay !! Simply fell in love with this place - warm & homely. The host, Kitty, was very considerate in checking with us if any of us are scared of dogs upon checking-in. Lovely breakfast - freshly prepared and served in beautiful dining ware. Wifi is available in the reception & dining area. Just a short stroll... More
