This was a place that you would love to own yourself. The latout was good, the rooms were of good size and the garden was lovely. A farm shop was next door that also had a little cafe. Stayed here for the Roman ruins. Only down fall was if you had 6 people staying was not enough cutlery.
Best cottage location ever ?

During our many visits to the dales, this cottage has proven to be a very comfortable and convenient base, with a very dog friendly garden and being ideally located to visit our families in North Yorkshire. It is situated in an interesting village with an inn and a hotel both serving good meals. There are good walks from the door, especially by the river and the remains of the roman fort. We have stayed at Rose cottage several times and will be back for another enjoyable stay.

Everything to a very high standard. Accomodation and gardens lovely. Used the open coal fire most nights for the novalty factor rather than needing the warmth. Minor problem with fridge door but pressume this is fixed now. Area brilliant for local walks. Would love to go again.
A little piece of heaven !!

My husband and myself plus Edward the Border Collie cross had a brilliant week in Rose Cottage back in August 2008.
Not too far away from home (about hour or so) we arrived in Piercebridge with a little apprehension as its not the prettiest of villages. We found Rose Cottage and the owner was there to greet us.
She was so lovely and friendly.
When she left it was just like being in our own little piece of heaven...set back from the road, huge and secure front garden and driveway...great enclosed back garden....secluded and very peaceful !! Inside was cosy, clean and very well presented.
Great walks around the area, plenty to do but ultimately a fantastic retreat to just relax...read a book...dog was safe to wander in gardens...glass of wine...fab !!
Weather could have been better, but thats the UK for you.
I would have no hestation in recommending Rose Cottage. I highly commend it !!!
