My partner and I stayed with my parents while we were attending a wedding in the local area. Christine was absolutely lovely and really helpful! The bed was the most comfy bed I have ever slept in and the sheets were so soft. We also got to use the delightfully large bath which was a treat :) Christine was also kind enough to provide cake (yummy!) and there was tea, coffee, jam, milk, orange juice and biscuits to keep us going while we were there. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone!
Stayed here as a central location between ourselves in Newcastle and friends from Sussex, and it was the perfect peaceful escape! The house is beautifully presented with everything we could possibly need, the welcome pack was very generous, and Christine was incredibly accommodating with anything else we needed! Grounds are extensive and immaculately well kept, and we enjoyed a lovely morning out at Kedleston Hall, 10 minutes drive away. Delicious Sunday lunch at the Saracen's Head after checking out, which Christine kindly booked for us. We will be back! Judging by the visitor's book many people are regulars - what more recommendation would you need?
We visit the area every year or so and have seen it all in terms of rental cottages. Rose Cottage is perfect in every way and we're done- we'll never look elsewhere. The hosts were lovely and very gracious, the cottage perfect and spotless, the gardens and pond beyond amazing,etc etc. The pictures do not do it justice whatsoever! Thank you Christine an Roger!
