A short, steeply descending, well decorated cave, which lies close to St. Cuthbert's Swallet, but appears to be hydrologically unconnected. The cave has two entrances, located 3m apart, which were dug open progressively by the BEC from 2004 to 2007 close to where water pumped from St. Cuthbert's Swallet during a cave rescue disappeared underground. The water entering the cave originates in Fair Lady Well. A short crawl connects to Rose Cottage Cave II. (q.v.)

Alternate Names: None recorded.

Hydrographic Feeds: Fair Lady Well Spring
