Have just returned from this picturesque bed and breakfast in the lake district. We received a very warm welcome by the host (still in his pinny) who immediately made us feel very much at home.
Our room was warm, clean, spacious and furnished with all we could possibly need. The bathroom was also large and clean, containing a hot shower and plenty of good quality toiletries. There was a fantastic view from our bedroom window, overlooking the estuary, and the sunset had to be seen to be believed.
Excellent choice of breakfasts. I opted for the Cumbrian breakfast which was excellently cooked and so large that I didn't need lunch!!
We were even offered the opportunity to sample the forthcoming evening meals. There was a great choice, beautifully cooked and good size portions, again!!!
Rose Garth Guest House is the ideal place to stay to enjoy the lakes at their best. We'll definitely be going back and soon.

We chose this hotel following recommendation by friends who had recently stayed. We'd previously stayed in various other locations in the Lake District and would probably not have considered it other than the prompt of our friends. However the area is lovely, if you're after a genuine piece of Cumbria then look no further, the village is small with only a handful of houses, a pub and a hotel but everything is within your grasps. Wonderful walks and plenty of pubs are only a drive away. Rose Garth is the perfect place to stay and the best B&B i have ever stayed in for sure. The extra touches like the wine glasses and cork screw available for guests to help themselves is genius and my other half took great delight in stocking up on the soaps which were above that expected when paying the average rate for lake district accomodation. The breakfast was all it should be, very tasty and made from quality ingrediants and not sparing...perfect for the day walking...

A well needed week away was spent in the Western Lake District, and Rosegarth Guest House in Ravenglass excelled. A tiny village, a comfortable place to stay and lots of fresh air & good food.
Waking up every morning to the most amazing, uninterrupted ever changing views across the estuary was fantastic, it made me want to sleep with the cutains open! The room was lovely, clean and bright, with a comfy chair for book reading by the window, binoculars for bird watching and yummy fairtrade teas, coffee and hot chocolate in the room. A TV with freeview channels & DVD player was also available, although I mostly used it for the radio. Good storage and hanging space meant I was able to unpack - not always an option in the smaller rooms of some hotels.
The owners were great, very personable and extremely informative about the local area. Having recently moved here and taken over Rosegarth (although originally being from west Cumbria I believe), their enthusiasm was catching. When I asked about hiking I was furnished with information, options and maps to borrow, and on a wet return my boots, socks and jacket were whisked away to be dried overnight!
The breakfasts were delicious & filling, using local produce, and provided several options to try. Packed luch was also available to order, to take on my days out. The house seemed old, victorian I think, well looked after and full of history & charm, as is the whole village, perched between mountains and sea.
It takes a little while to drive to this side of the Lake District, but is well worth it for the serenity and hospitality of Rosegarth. I can't wait for my next escape, I'm definately going back!

Rose Garth is a fabulous place to stay in the Lake District. The rooms are spotless. There is every extra you can imagine in your room - nice toiletries, flat screen tv, fluffy towels, hot chocolate, biscuits etc etc. It is better than many 4* hotel I have stayed in. The owners were very welcoming. The breakfasts were great - they put a lot of thought into the options. A healthy smoked salmon and scrambled egg beautifully presented, a hearty full english with exceptional quality ingredients and a very nice vegetarian option. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. And we will be returning some time soon.

Had a wonderfully relaxing weekend break at Rose Garth. The hosts made us feel part of the family - nothing was too much trouble. The food was of the highest quality - the breakfast awesome! It was great to have a cup of tea that was made the old fashioned way - loose tea leaves and brewed in a pot.

If you are interested in the local area this is the place to stay. Neil and Denise are very knowledgeable about the locality with lots of personal recommendations. They turned out to be keen walkers themselves so knew just where to go.

The bedrooms are exceptionally clean, comfortable and spacious with tea/coffee making facilities as well as bottled water.

I would highly recommend Rose Garth to stay - we are looking forward to our return visit!

I stayed at Rose Garth Guest House with a friend in May 2008. We were looking for a relaxing break and time to see the beautiful sights.
This is exactly what we got from staying at Rose Garth. Although the owners Neil and Denise had only just taken over the guest house they knew the area and were able to offer brilliant advice on places to go and sights to see. They were very welcoming and accomodating throughout the stay.
The rooms were clean and spacious, with tea and coffee facilities.
Breakfast served in the morning offered a wide variety and high standard with enough to keep you going for the walks around the lakes!
Rose Garth is a short drive from Wast Water and the heart of Cumbria, with many attractions within walking distance.
When I return to The Lakes I will definatly come back to Rose Garth.
