Where is it?
The English Lake District offers a wealth of beauty and outdoor activities. See our website:
www.rosecottagecumbria.co.uk for events being held and photos of the surrounding walking, cycling, sailing opportunities.
Just 2 miles from Rose Cottage - one of the rare towns in England that still manages to retain its Victorian charm. Grange has managed to maintain many of its independent specialist shops and a visit to them is a must. Don't forget a walk along the promenade or a trip to the Berners swimming pool with its spectacular views across the bay.
Close by â a pub serving food (60 yards - hidden away though the woods!), woodland and coastal walks, Cumbria Cycle Way, the nearby Netherwood Hotel with its indoor spa pool and Jacuzzi, an ice-cream farm.
Get up early and there is a good chance you will see one or more of the deer that pass through the grounds. Barn owls, woodpeckers, jays, nut hatches are among the numerous types of birds that are frequent visitors - especially if you leave out some food on the bird table - watch the squirrels don't eat it first though!
It is just 12 miles to Lake Windermere, for the steamer and steam railway (used as a setting for the film of Swallows and Amazons).
The nearby National Trust woodlands are perfect for a stroll. A short drive away, the woodlands of Witherslack provide for a longer walk - or even a whole day out. Also there are several walks down to the coast line. Rose Cottage is situated on the Cumbrian Way.
