  • “I had read the recent reviews of Rose Bank prior to our holiday and was a bit concerned about some of the comments which didn't seem to have a response to say issues had been resolved, so i contacted Sykes helpdesk and got reassurance points had been dealt with.”


    Rose Bank was fine, but it was a shame that there were some elements which wouldn't take a great deal of effot that would make such a dfference and improve the quality of the property and stay. Things like - No toilet roll or towel in downstairs loo No guest soaps in any of the bathrooms Cold tap on bath in purple back bedroom didn't work so couldn't run a bath, leak from shower in same bathroom. really cheap duvets and pillows (lumpy pillows) and really old 'bobbly' sheets. Front door lock is very tempermental (as has been reported in other reviews) DVD player in main kitchen/living/dining room didn't work Back garden has no side gate, so not quite sure how it can be classed as an enclosed back garden. Parking - welcome folder says here are your parking permits, but there werent' any - when i phoned Sykes to check, they checked with owners and said they only provide them on racedays. Although we didn't have a problem parking in Orchard Close, we only had one car and it was out of summer season, it may have been more difficult for other guests and everywhere else in Cartmel requires a permit. Overall the stay was fine, but with a little bit more tlc and attention to detail it could have been elevated to a great stay.

The property

Resting in the village of Cartmel, renowned for its walking opportunities and relaxing countryside, this retreat is excellently-positioned for exploring the local area and beyond.

Well-suited for families, bring along your loved ones to make the most of the tasteful interior, promising a peaceful stay all-year-round.

Step inside to the entrance hall, where you have a choice of places to relax, the first being a homely sitting room, which benefits from an open fire to warm those cooler evenings.

For a change of scenery, enjoy the open plan living area, complete with a characterful kitchen/diner.

After preparing those appetising meals, settle down at the seating area, escape into a good book or spend some quality time with your friends.

To finish the ground floor, a cloakroom and a utility are well appointed.

Two double bedrooms are located upstairs, neatly presented and complimented by en-suite bathrooms, whilst the second floor boasts a twin bedroom, this time offering a wonderful en-suite shower room.

Views of Cartmel Priory can be admired from the cottage, and if that's not enough, wander into the village for so much more.

Featuring pretty streamside walks, quaint cobbled streets littered with antique shops, a charming gift shop and of course welcoming, traditional pubs, you are sure to be impressed.

Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a thirty-minute drive, certainly worth a visit.
