Perfect Lakes hideaway
Great location next to the Northern Fells, off the tourist track in the lovely village of Heskett Newmarket, complete with its own pub, brewery and village shop. Plenty of walks from the doorstep, and even more a short drive away. Accommodation was top notch, clean and tidy, and the welcome basket of goodies was very, er, welcome. Loved it.

Amazing Cottage
What a wonderful cottage, pure luxury. The best I have stayed in. Comfortable bed and beautiful surroundings. Enjoyed the walk from the village to Caldbeck and enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Oddfellows Arms. The village pub was great, lovely friendly staff and good food too. Had a lovely time and got to see Max the Miracle Dog statue.

A fantastic cottage in a great location
Rose cottage has everything you need for a very relaxing holiday. It has two very spacious bedrooms with TVs and lovely comfortable beds. It is set in a fantastic location close to the village pub, playground and a shop. The kitchen has everything you need, along with a very comfortable lounge and dining room. There is a spacious utility room for washing and drying and the garden is perfect to sit in on a lovey sunny day and, for the kids to play. We highly recommend!

Loved it!
This is our second visit to Hesket Newmarket within 6 months due to ideal location, quality of the cottage and hospitality of staff and locals in the pub(the Old Crown) Walks are from the front door or you can travel further afield depending on your ability. Everything about the cottage is amazing, from view of the hills behind the cottage to the lovely outside sitting area, which we were able to use in May was a bonus. Simply an exceptional place to stay, Nothing to dislike at all. Regards

Atmospheric 250 year old cottage with all mod cons
Loved this cottage. Warm, cosy, well equipped and immaculate with log burning stove and large supply of logs. Owners very helpful and prompt in responses. Lovely welcome basket. Jacuzzi bath with lights, BT Sport and Netflix. Bluetooth speakers and underfloor heating. Quite amazing in such an old traditional cottage. Good spot for touring. We enjoyed trips to Keswick and Buttermere and even spotted some fell ponies. Excellent meals in the local pub, also Oddfellows in Caldbeck and the Bridge Inn in Buttermere. Highly recommend this cottage.

Peaceful Cottage Break
Rose Cottage is well located in the quiet village of Hesket Newmarket, within easy reach of the village pub and shop. There are a few walks direct from the cottage into the fields and woods to take the dog. The cottage is comfortable and is well furnished and fitted out with everything we needed. The log burner made it warm and cosy, ideal for an autumn evening. We had a nice card and welcome basket of drinks and food which was much appreciated. We only stayed for 3 nights and therefore didn't travel that far in the car. We particularly enjoyed going to the Old Crown Pub in the village as it's only a short walk from the cottage and the beer is very good. We had a trip to the Oddfellows Arms in Caldbeck for a meal one night and that was good albeit a bit slow. I can see why the cottage has excellent reviews and we were pleased we picked it for our short stay. Well done to the owners.

Peaceful 5 star perfection
Rose Cottage is in the peaceful village of Hesket Newmarket, in a lovely quiet spot. There is no passing traffic other than the cows on a morning, then again in the afternoon on their daily commute - lovely to see. The high standard of the cottage makes it so comfortable and leaves you wanting for nothing. An endless supply of logs for the fire was a real treat to get cosy on an evening with a glass of wine (from the welcome basket) after a day out exploring the surrounding area, and also further afield. The welcome basket is the best we have ever had. Local goodies, all delicious and very much appreciated, we felt spoilt from walking through the door. The milk from Midtown Milkhouse at Caldbeck was gorgeous and we went for a refill during our stay. A comfortable bed with good quality linens made for a great sleep, dressing gowns were a treat too, not something that is often supplied in holiday cottages. The bathroom is a delight, I enjoyed a bubble bath or two after a days walking, and the underfloor heating is a nice touch. There is a nice big grassed garden to the side of the cottage plus a paved area with a table and chairs & a chimenea. We didn't make use of this in October but it must be lovely in the warmer months. A well equipped kitchen made cooking a pleasure, but on the days that I couldn't be bothered (I was on holiday after all) we ate out in the local pub, The Old Crown and also at the Oddfellows Arms in Caldbeck. We booked ahead and both were good choices - we were welcomed along with our dog by the locals and staff. The Old Crown has its own brewery behind the pub, and serves a selection of its own beers and ales, and a bottle of this was also in the welcome basket (honestly - THE BEST and most generous gift to arrive on holiday to) You can find walks from the door of the cottage, leaving the car to rest up safely on the gated driveway. We walked from Hesket to Caldbeck and back, stopping for a brew at the Muddy Duck in Caldbeck, and our dog could be off the leash most of the way as a lot of the walk was nowhere near livestock or a road. In less than half an hour you can be in The Lakes at Bassenthwaite. We would recommend lunch or afternoon tea at Bassenthwaite Lake Station aboard the Orient Express train, just make sure you book ahead! When you read the visitors journal in the cottage you can see that people return again and again to Rose Cottage, and after our first stay we can see why. We can't wait to go back, this is a gem of a find. Well done David and Mandy, your cottage is a thing of beauty.

Perfect in every way!
This is a very well looked after character cottage with so many good points that it's hard to list them succinctly. It certainly ticked all our boxes (and more) including allowing pets but still being clean and tidy, with very good quality modern but classic furnishings, sunny pretty garden with views, peaceful location overlooking village green, various different walks from the door, short walk across green to local pub which not only has good food but also its own micro bewery, not too far to drive for other Lake District areas / points of interest, sun room/conservatory with comfy chairs, cosy log burner as well as efficient central heating, comfy recliner sofas, smart tv, very well supplied with good quality kitchen equipment, super-kingsize bed option, flexible bookings, good communication with owner. The only thing missing from our list was a tumble dryer, but the rest more than made up for this, especially the jacuzzi bath tub! I think we were very lucky to squeeze in our latish booking 5 day stay, as otherwise all dates taken, deservedly so. Thanks for a great stay and the lovely welcome pack.

About the neighborhood
Rose Cottage is situated in the peaceful village of Hesket Newmarket - a traditional fell village situated in the Northern Fells of the English Lake District. The area is one of the more secluded and peaceful parts of the Lake District, and boasts some outstanding scenery and some of the best, less frequented walking in the whole of the Lake District. These include High Pike and Carrock Fell - both of which can be viewed from the back of the cottage. A market cross stands on the huge and pleasant swarth of the village green. The green is surrounded by neatly kept cottages, mainly dating from the eighteenth century. The timeless character of the village has been preserved as a conservation area where ponies, sheep, even ducks roam freely. Hesket Newmarket has a shop/post office, together with tearooms. The multi-award winning village pub, The Old Crown, was Britain's first co-operatively owned pub - by the villagers themselves. The Old Crown's micro brewery, the Hesket Newmarket Brewery, is located behind the pub and make it a popular place for real ale enthusiasts. The pub usually has at least 5 real ales on at any one time which are usually CAMRA award winners. The pub also serves excellent home-cooked bar meals. Hesket also holds an agricultural show in September every year which features wrestling, horses, ponies, hounds and terriers. Fell walking, mountain biking, cycling and horse riding are all popular pastimes in this part of the North Lakes. No car required. Just step out the cottage door... The picturesque village of Caldbeck is only a mile away. Here the river and its tributaries provided the water for the important industrial development of the area in the 17th and 18th centuries - woolen mills, bobbin mills, corn mills, a paper mill and a brewery. The village still reflects this former industrial activity with many of the old mill buildings still in use. The Caldbeck Fells in former times were riddled with mines, long since disused. The Cumbria Way also passes close to the village as well as two long distance cycle routes, namely the C2C (Coast to Coast) and the Reivers Route. Other local places to eat include the Watermill Cafe and Oddfellows Arms in Caldbeck, the Snooty Fox in Uldale and the Mill Inn in Mungrisdale.
