Rockwood is also centrally located in the Lakes, so ideal for exploring this, the most beautiful of all the National Parks in England. Rockwood has 6 bedrooms and accommodates up to 10 adults plus 2 extra children. Two of the bedrooms are in the ground floor annexe, which makes Rockwood ideal for families with older relatives or younger children. There is a family bathroom upstairs and a shower room and WC downstairs, two kitchens and two lounges. There are no gardens at Rockwood but there is a very small sitting area at the front of the cottage and the drive can only take up to 3 cars, with no alternative parking nearby. We cannot accept groups for stag parties, hen nights or more than 10 adults. We can only accept a maximum of 12 guests. We do accept up to two well behaved dogs (depending on the number of the people staying in the cottage). There is a small cleaning charge for each dog.More

The dining table, by the log burning stove, offers plenty of space for all. The main lounge is large and comfortable, with childrens den and TV off. The annexe also offers a TV lounge for 6.High quality linen is provided for all our guests, but personal towels are not. The house is professionally cleaned before and after your stay.The accommodation at Rockwood is perfect for a family holiday, for those wanting a spacious home from home; or for friends sharing a holiday. It is in an extremely beautiful part of the Lake District in total peace and quiet, yet very close to the village. It sits along a quiet country lane, where deer are often spotted, and cows are herded every morning for milking. The layout of the house is also perfect to afford some privacy or for those who share differing tastes in Tv or evening games, as it has 2 lounges. But the large dining area means everyone can still socialise together in front of a warm log fire. The 2 downstairs bedrooms are ideal forn those who may not be able tio manage the stairs so easily. The accessibility of the village, only 10 minutes walk away, means you can stroll to ione of the traditional local pubs, or enjoy a meal in a lovely restuarant. We gladly accept pets are are a non-smoking establishment. Rockwood has free wireless internet.
