Rose Cottage: Grizedale
This is a stylish, newly refurbished cottage in the the village of Satterthwaite in the heart of Grizedale Forest. Rose Cottage is semi - detached and has its own sunny, patio overlooking fields, fells and forest this is really a delightful property for two or three. The village has a country pub for meals if you don't feel like cooking and tennis courts nearby if you are feeling energetic. Hawkshead is 4 miles away and Grizedale Visitor Centre only 1 mile away with its sculpture trails, mountain bike routes and GO-APE - a tree top assault course.
The Accommodation consists of:
The entrance is via the patio area - the french doors lead you into a small attractive dining room. We are sure you will be impressed by the attention to detail and high levels of finish the owners have created in this refurbishment. There is a cosy lounge which has a stylish built in wood burning stove, a comfortable italian sofa and chair, flat screen, wall mounted TV (with Sky Freeview) and DVD . There is access from the lounge to the road via the original front door if required.
The kitchen at the front of the property has been designed beautifully to make use of the space and offers electric oven and hob, washing machine, fridge (theres a extra fridge in the outside shed if required) and microwave.
The bathroom is off the dining room downstairs and offers a large shower with curved screen, wc and basin all of very high standard.
The rather narrow stairs lead up to the two pretty bedrooms. One double and one small single. The attractive double has a built in wardrobe and a delightful feature of the original cottage fireplace. Heating throughout the cottage is by electric radiators making the property cosy and ideal for use all year
Outside there is a lovely, sunny private patio with bench which also offers a secure place to keep bikes etc and allows small children to play safely.
There is parking adjacent to the property for 1 car

Comment: Satterthwaite is a lovely quiet location, clean and tidy cottage with everything you need and easy access to the Grisedale trails. Useful shed to put a couple of bicycles in (you need to bring your own padlock).
Altogether brilliant for two people.

Comment: My Wife and I enjoyed a wonderful week in Rose Cottage, as did our Labrador. The cottage was superb throughout,as was the location. We found the enclosed patio area a perfect suntrap to relax in after walks and in the evenings, and ideal for the dog.
We found it an ideal base for walks through Grizdale forest and other walks centred around Hawkshead.
My wife and I would highly recommend a stay at Rose Cottage and we both look forward to another visit.

Comment: A really clean and well presented cottage set in a very quiet village. The pub has very limited opening hours though. There are plenty of walks into the forest, straight from the front door. The hot chocolate in the visitor centre is well worth the walk in itself.
This was our second visit and will probably be back.

Comment: The church opposite to the cottage is a little gem and well worth having a look.
Our trip to Brantwood House was also lovely, if guests have that sort of interest.
Overall, a great base, with Grizedale being such a nearby bonus if there are children.
The cottage was of a high standard and well placed for many activities without driving miles.

Comment: Myself and my husband stated at Rose Cottage with our two dogs. The cottage itself is lovely, perfect for 2. The log fire is great and the cottage is decorated to a very high standard.
The enclosed garden was great with the two dogs as they could not escape. We loved sitting in the garden in the evening listening to the owls.
The village of Satterwaite is lovely, just a small good pub there(2 mins from cottage).
We particuarly liked the walks from our doorstep, especially with the dogs. You could walk up the lane beside the cottage, up a track and you had miles and miles of woodland to explore in the Grizedale forest (even a small hill for you to climb up onto).
I would highly recommend a stay at Rose Cottage and look forward to going back there again.
