Mouse House

Perfect for two people

A detached stone barn dating from when Rowling End was a farm, the Mouse House has been sympathetically developed as a stylish one bedroom cottage and affords all the luxury you would expect from its Four Star Gold Award Tourist Rating.

The Mouse House is an idyllic retreat for two people. It can be booked with Rowling End to provide accommodation for 10 people, ideal for groups celebrating a special occasion or relaxed get-togethers with family and friends.

The Mouse House offers exceptional comfort, warmth and style for your holiday in one of the Lake District’ most beautiful and tranquil valleys.

We pride ourselves on doing everything possible to help you enjoy your stay with us. Whether you are planning a short break or a longer holiday we want you to be as happy to stay in as to spend your days out walking and exploring the Northern Lakes.

With red squirrels living in the woods around the house as well as a wide variety of native birds, Rowling End is an ideal place for nature lovers.
