Rose Cottage Guest House is perfectly placed to allow our guests to explore some of the finest countryside and attractions that the surrounding area has to offer. We’re a mere three miles from the beautiful Lorton Valley and Buttermere. To the east is the popular and perhaps better known town of Keswick with the largest lake, Lake Windermere, only forty five minutes away.

Local amenities include Golf (two nearby courses), riding and pony trekking, fishing, tennis and – at the local leisure centre – swimming and badminton.

Cockermouth also boasts it’s own castle with the adjacent Castle Brewery – why not try the local Jennings beer?

Places to visit include Lakeland Sheep and Wool Centre, Jennings Brewery Tour, Kirkgate Centre, Wordsworth Memorial and Wordsworth House, Museum of Printing and Wood Hall to name a few.
